Hello Everyone,

 

I was amazed to see how many people on this forum are willing to devote their precious time to helping others by sharing their own experiences and giving helpful advice. This is such a wonderful idea and I am happy to be a part of it.

 

I got engaged to the Love-of-My-Life Rich, on March 27 (his birthday and our 2nd anniversary). He came into my life at the point when I resigned to the idea that some people (read: ME) never find their true love. How wrong was I...I couldn't be more in love.

 

We really want to get married this year (beginning of Dec is our tentative time range)...so there is not much time left to plan a wedding. It seems that DW vs. Traditional Wedding is more realistic at this point...and hopefully more fun as well. As we are on a budget (not much time left to save) and some of our friends, who we'd love to come, are not going be able to afford a trip to an expensive resort, I am trying to decide whether our goal is attainable so soon. Does anyone know of an affordable yet beautiful place that's easy to fly to? A place on/near a cliff (or beach) with lush green surroundings. Since we both love nature, I am looking for a place with lots of natural beauty. Hmm...I know this is a tall order, but the true question is - Is my order TOO tall?

 

I would be grateful for any thoughts/advice in regard to our time frame and destination!

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Ania

Hmm not sure, what about Florida as your DW? Flying out of the country could get expensive, what is your projected budget, lets start there.

 

Congrats on your recent engagement and welcome.

Welcome Ania!

 

I think your goal is attainable, for sure! What is your budget like? The Caribbean is gorgeous, and has everything you want, but it is a little more expensive. Tammy's suggestion of Florida is a good one too, and might work better with a smaller budget.

 

First things first: Budget. Then your priorities, we know you like nice scenary, but where do you see your ceremony taking place? Is it on the cliff, or beach - maybe a garden? Next, what kind of accomodations are you thinking of? An all-inclusive, a villa?

 

Choosing the location is the hardest part - after that, it's all gravy! wink.gif

Hi, I think you could pull it off! What about Monterey CA? I think Christa (A10CALGAL) lives there. It's really pretty.

Congrats on your engagement!!

Have you thought about the DR? It is very beautiful but a lot less exspensive than some of the other islands! Check out the DR threads for some great info on a lot of resorts!

Hi Ania! I'm getting married in Jamaica. There are some (supposedly) gorgeous cliff areas in Negril, Jamaica. I went with Riu because it's quite affordable, but still really nice. There are 2 Riu locations in Negril - Hotels Negril, Jamaica - Riu Hotels & Resorts. Amanda is getting married at one of them if you want more info about it.

 

Another plus is that you can fly direct to Jamaica from New York & Newark airports (not sure what aread you're in). Good luck with the decision - let us know your plans when you figure them out!! smile29.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
