    I've seen so few Couples brides I'm starting to wonder if there's a reason.... I didn't know about this forum before I booked and so I didn't realize there were so many options out there. Couples still looks like a good choice but it makes me a little nervous to see no other upcoming Couples brides. I know there have been some in the past and I have read those reviews.

    I'm sure it's not a big deal I just wish there were more reviews to read or pictures to see. Either way I'm going to make it a perfect day and enjoy every minute of it. And I did meet another bride on the Couples message board getting married 5 hours earlier than I am so I can swap ideas with her too.

    Anywhoo...just some random thoughts. Anybody that looked at Couples have any input on why they didn't go with it? Just out of curiosity.

      I think a lot of brides on here wanted a place that allowed families.

        I wouldn't worry too much about it Vikki!! I'm sure there are still a lot of people going to Couples - they just may not be on this website!!
        I know that there was only one person getting married before me at the RIU Bachata...and it was only like 2 weeks before. There are a couple more now, but still not many! We still had a fabulous time!
        I know what you're saying though! I wish I would have found this website before I booked & planned my wedding too! There are so many great ideas here that I would have liked to incorporate!
        Regardless, I'm sure you will have an amazing wedding!!

          The sky could fall and I would have an amazing wedding as long as Brandon is there with me!

            I wouldn't worry, Vikki....as a Sandals Bride myself (and there aren't too terribly many of us on this site, either) I shared the same concern about why more people hadn't chosen my resort, but still decided that it was where we wanted to be and we booked it yesterday anyway!

            When I first joined, I noticed that there are LOTS of brides going to all types of resorts that I had never even HEARD of before (RIU, Grand Palladium, Iberostar, Dreams and more), so I checked out their websites to see what they were all about. While all of the resorts are positively gorgeous, some were simply out of our price range, and some just didn't feel like they were going to work for what we wanted. I just felt more comfortable with Sandals, since it is an adult-only resort, and that is what we prefer.

            Plus, there are SOOOO many different places (Jamaica, Mexico, Hawaii, other islands, etc.) that maybe some people wanted to get married in a specific geographic location, and then made their resort decision based on what was available in that area.

            At any rate, you are booked at an awesome resort, and you and your FI (along with your guests) are going to have an incredible time and a beautiful wedding! If it makes you feel any better, my FI and I are considering going to a Couples resort for a future anniversary -- probably San Souci, too! :)
