    Hi all! My FI and I live in Manhattan. We decided to do a destination wedding because it's soooo expensive here and because we want to have a vacation with all of our family and friends. We are getting married in Tulum, so everyone flies into Cancun. It's such an easy flight and reasonably cheap from NYC, so most people are excited for it. And you don't have to twist too many arms to get people to leave New York in February to hit the beach ! :-)

      We ended up having our AHR (which was the only reception we had) over Memorial Day weekend as well for that reason. The reception was on the Sunday of that weekend, which meant that people really didn't have to take any days off from work.

      We're all so lucky in that flights into and out of NYC are usually so reasonable (even for a holiday weekend - where prices usually sky-rocket), and they have 3 different options of airports.

          I'm a Long Island girl too! Seems like everyone I know these days are getting married at the Crest Hollow. That's so boring to me! My FI and I decided we wanted something different and not the typical catering hall wedding. Plus it's a vacation for everyone!

            I am from long island and will be getting married at the chapel at the gran caribe cancun. I agree a destination wedding is more beautiful and different than the typical weddings at home at villa lombardis! you pay less and get more time than four to five hrs!

                    Hello fellow New Yorkers! I currently live in Brooklyn and am getting married at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suite on 11/14/10. I too didnt want to have to spend a fortune for a 5 hour party. A DW is the way to go, so happy that we are going this way. This is a great site and was so happy to find it!
