Destination Wedding questions! Please help

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I am thinking of having a destination wedding. I would like to either do aruba, bahamas, or St. John, St. marteen....i wanted to find out if i have 30 people how much approx would you guys think that would cost me?

 

has anyone had a small wedding at an island and how much did everything run you? im trying to figure out if a wedding here would be the same price as a destination.

 

Thanks!!

Congrats and welcome3.gif to the forum! That's a tricky question to answer only because there are SOOO many variables that will go into your cost factor. For example, are you doing a private dinner that you have to pay per person, depending on the resort you choose they have differences in price for wedding packages, decorations, do you plan on hiring a dj, photographer, etc.

We all have a different vision of what the "perfect" wedding is, so it becomes really difficult to compare. I know that doesn't exactly help you, but hopefully it will help you narrow down your questions. Good luck!!

Welcome!!

Definitely do a sure through the forum for the answers to your quetions. TONS of people on here have done weddings in those locations and can probably help out with costs estimates. Also, try talking to a travel agent!

Happy planning!

Congrats and welcome! Start emailing some WC at the places you are looking at to inquire about their packages with prices and what their a la carte items cost. That's the best way to start figuring out what it will cost you. Also look into what the airfare will cost to each place around the time frame you plan on getting married there.

You're gonna LOVE being a part of this amazing forum!!! And you might want to contact one of the BDW TA's (travel agents) with your location-specific questions -- they are a wealth of knowledge and should be able to assist you!

 

BDW has proven to be invaluable in my planning, and it's comforting to know that there are other brides out there experiencing the same highs and lows during their planning process...a friend is always just on the other side of your computer screen!

 

CONGRATULATIONS and Welcome to BDW...it's a wedding-planning heaven!

    • 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?
