Newbie looking for a destination!
Posted 27 August 2009 - 07:30 AM
We are looking for a place in the caribbean (excluding Jamaica, as the hubby-to-be has been there multiple times) and I am not sure how I feel about AI's. If anyone has a suggestion for me, I'd appreciate the H.E.L.P!!!!!!!
Congrats, all, on your upcoming wedding!

Are you looking for religious or just spiritual? Will you legalize at home before arriving @ the destination or do you want to make it legal in your location? Do you want a chapel or beach/gazebo? Do you want a certain themed reception, like on the beach or in a restaurant? Are you happy dealing with the wedding coordinator / package provided by the hotel or would you like to bring in your own people? Are all-inclusive's easier for your guests or do you not care and just want the best for your ceremony? Do passports matter?
I've run into some of these issues when starting to plan. At first I thought of avoiding the passports all together in hopes of having more guests so I was looking into Puerto Rico or the USVI's.... but then the more I looked into the options for ceremony locations I really felt that it wasn't what was in my heart, and those places really wouldn't mean anything to us. Low and behold here I am looking into Mexico which we LOVE. Now I also, after discussing with my family, will be having a Catholic ceremony which limits my ceremony/hotel/reception locations drastically. In Mexico I need to be married in an approved Chapel. Also if I want to make it legal, I will need to arrive 4 days before hand and go through the extensive "check-list" to make sure we can do that.
Sorry for exhausting post - but I think that's your best bet. Sit down with your FH and jot out a list of whats important to you. That should help with the process of narrowing down locations.
Hope I could help a little!
