    Hi My name is Callie
    And I am so lost with all of this wedding planning. Me and my Fiance' Skyler would like to travel with close friends and family to get married. We have not yet decided on a place. We have a budget and would like to get the most for our money. If anyone has suggestions please post. We are looking at 15 or less guest to attend our wedding. I want beach, flowers, small reception, rehersal dinner, hair and makeup, and just the best of my life.
    We would like to get married as close to July 16th as possible.

    Thank you everyone

        Welcome and Congrats! Some places that are not too expensive for a DW are Jamaica, DR, and Mexico. You can find a resort that has packages that fit your budget. An all inclusive resort may be good for you since you plan to have a small group. This way you can have your reception and rehearsal dinner at one of the resort restaurants and save some $$.

        Start out by making a list of things that you MUST have and what you would like your wedding to look like. Speak to a Travel agent to get information about possible locations that will fit into your travel budget ( for you and guests).

        Check out the forums on here- you will find so much info and friendly people -it will help you with the planning.

        Good Luck!!

            Sounds like you have a great start! If you are wanting July... check out weather. I know in Puerto Vallarta where I got married it is very hot and humid... but have heard Belize is nice that time of year. Not sure about Jamaica but check that out. Then check to see where the more reasonable places to fly are.
            All inclusive or not?
            You may be able to get a pretty good deal with a smaller group like yours! It is a lot to take in, so start by figuring out where youd like to go. Congrats!
