In Search of Caribbean Destination

Recommended Posts

Elyse,

Did you ever decide? We're planning for May or June 2010 and have it narrowed down to the Bahamas or the Cayman Islands. I've been researching a lot too and want to make a decision soon. The bad thing about research is that reading 1 bad thing can take over your thoughts (even though there are hundreds of good reviews). -Natasha

Congratulations and welcome! I think choosing the loaction is the hardest part - it took me almost a year to finally pick somewhere, because I kept changing my mind, lol. I'd pick somewhere, and think "Oh, this is definitely it!" but 2 weeks later I'd change my mind and pick a different island/resort. Information overload!! lol

 

Anyway - there is a ton of information here, and many great resources. Hopefully you'll be able to choose your perfect location :)

I'm in a similar situation to you. I'm trying to pick between Cozumel/Riviera Maya, Punta Cana, and Mazatlan. The biggest problem is I love each place for a different reason. I've started a spreadsheet of information on the different resorts I have looked at. I'm hoping that helps me narrow it down for me! Good luck, let me know if I can help :)

Hi Elyse! I'm in the same boat...I had thought I'd narrowed it down but I'm going through the same as you! My FI told me yesterday that he wants a longer cruise so now I have to go back again and re-visit all the countless hours of deciding on where to go to....I'm also planning an April, 2010 wedding in the Caribbean - I have narrowed it down to Grand Cayman and Virgin Islands I believe...simply for the residency restrictions on the other locations.... maybe this will help you some? I'd love to compare notes with you if you're interested. cheesy.gif

Welcome and Good Luck. I am in the process of booking my wedding at RIU MB but I am secretly having doubts. I understand, totally how you must feel still deciding on a destination. I personally have never been to Jamaica, but my FI and I have decided to try someplace that neither of us have gone. That said, I secretly would prefer Mexico or Dominican Republic. Still not too late. Let me know how your search goes, or if you have questions. I have been doing a lot of research in the process, you never know...I might be able to help!smile03.gif

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
