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.

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!

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!

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!!
