    Hey everyone, I am new to the site and was hoping I could get some feedback on a location for my wedding next spring. My fiance and I would like to go to Jamaica. We don't have a date set, but we're looking at April 17th or 24th 2010. We are most concerned about the money our guests will spend to get there and stay for 3-4 nights. If anybody knows of a nice place that's not too expensive, I would appreciate the advice. I will have about 40 guests with 6 kids (13-17). I have been looking at RIU Ochos Rios and also Beaches and Sandals Negril. I've also looked at HalfMoon and Moondance cliffs.

    Any advice would help! Thanks everyone!

      Hey Bree,

      I found that picking the spot was THE hardest decision. After that I promise it gets easier; time consuming, but easier. I cannot advise on Jamaica as we had our wedding in the Dominican Republic, which I found to be cheaper, but just as beautiful. Good luck and congratulations!

          Picking the place is really hard. I'm still trying to do that myself. Check out the Jamacia section of the forum...start a spreadsheet of the stuff each resort offers and make sure you estimate price in there. That way you can see which one offers the best stuff for the right price... just because it might be the cheapest on rooms, doesn't mean it would be the cheapest over all.

          Good luck and happy planning :)

            It's definitely the hardest decision. I thought I'd decided but now I'm having second thoughts myself :)
            Congratulations and Welcome to the forum.

              Once you've decided to have a destination wedding, picking where you want to go is so hard! But once you research and learn different countries' (or states') personalities and what they have to offer, it makes it a little easier. Once you do pick, sometimes it helps to go with a travel agent, especially if it's another country. Well congratulations and welcome to the forum!
