      Congrats and welcome!! Just consider all locations and see which offers what you're wanting and will also keep the budget down for your traveling guests, but remember this is your big day and you want to keep it the way you imagined!

              Welcome and congratuatilans. Check out RIU franchise, they have good wedding packages and reasonably priced for guests.

                Congrats and welcome!! There are tons of possibilities. I remember when I was first deciding, I kept bouncing from one place to the next, always worrying about cost. But I think the most important part is finding the place that will make your wedding a fond memory!

                COME TO HAWAII!! I'd love to see more Maui brides. =) There are always ways to keep prices down, like getting a permit and being married on the beach, or having a package done at a restaurant! Actually I was on expedia a few nights ago and found that you can get a package for 10 days, flight + hotel, for $1200. That's not bad at all. If money is really an issue though, many of the places in Mexico and Costa Rica seem like a good choice because of the all inclusive deals. Another good way is to get married on a cruise. =) Best of luck!

                    I got engaged in June and am finally starting to plan my wedding! I am kinda stressed out about finding a location for my destination wedding. I wanted to do a destination wedding to lower my budget but I feel guilty for my asking my wedding guests to pay to attend my wedding. I really wanted to get married in Hawaii but am considering Jamaica or somewhere in the Caribbean because of the all inclusive resorts. Are there any suggestions to what I should do? I just really want my guests to have a great time!
                    Congratulations! I would suggest Mexico as well. Things are much cheaper there and I think you will get a better turn out. With the economy not being so good right now I think it is important to show your guests a good time and make it easier on their wallets as well. That is what we are doing too! We wanted something more lush like Hawaii but we've realized we wouldn't get that good of a turn out. So we booked our wedding at the Catalonia Riviera Maya which is located in Puerto Aventuras. It's only 15 min. from Playa del Carmen and only 15 min. from the ferry to Cozumel.

                    Good luck with planning! This forum is really helpful and you will be glad you signed up for it.
