Sun, Sand ... and a budget

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My name is Andrea and I got engaged on June 18.

The FI and I definitely want a destination wedding although we have yet to decide where.

My main concern is keeping the price down for my guests because we want as much of our families there as possible and with the economy being what it is, we don't want to inconvenience anyone.

Any suggestions ... please feel free.


The other thing I've been looking for is a sample budget for destination weddings. Everything I've found so far is for traditional, at-home weddings so if anyone has a sample budget, please, please, please PM me or let me know where to find it. I don't want to forget about something and blow my budget.


BTW, this site is great and you all have amazing ideas so thank you for that!

Congrats & happy planning! If you do a search for budget, you will find threads where a bunch of brides have laid out their budget for all different locations! Good luck :)

I'm looking for a destination wedding specific budget too and tried doing a search but "budget" is just too commonly used on the site I think because I found tons but could narrow down something I could use.


If anyone could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

    • 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?
