  • The ability to download attachments*
  • The knowledge you're supporting the site in a great way!

 

For only $30, you'll become a Supporter for life.

 

* For more information about attachment limitations, please continue to read below.

Attachments & Downloading

 

On Best Destination Wedding, we have a wealth of attachments of hotel information, invitation templates, save the date templates, etc. etc.

 

To download attachments, you must be a Junior Member.  To reach "junior member" status you need to have a minimum of 150 posts.

- or -

You can by-pass the post count by purchasing a Site Supporter membership.


To Purchase a Supporter Membership to download attachment in lieu of the post count requirement please follow these instructions.

 

  • $30 one-time fee by-pass the 150 post requirement to download attachments. 
  • Click the "Become A Supporter" button above and you will be taken to the plan selection page.
  • Select the $30 Best Destination Wedding Supporter plan and click "Continue"
  • This will take you to PayPal where you can make your payment.
  • Paying the membership fee does not make you immune from getting banned. If you break forum rules, you will get banned the $30 fee is non-refundable.

 

The attachments are a way to reward members that contribute more to the forum. Downloads are a huge resource hog and very taxing on the server so we do not want people to just download templates whenever they want. It causes the forum to run very slowly and is very resource intensive.

If you do NOT have enough posts to download a template, it means you are not active enough.  This does not mean you should just post BS posts to get your post count up.  If you do so, your posts will be deleted and your account disabled.

Please do not ask for members to send you templates or downloads either on the forum or by PM. It is very time consuming for the member to send their downloads to everyone by email. That is why they are uploaded to the forum.

If it is reported that you have posted or pm'd a member for a template or download you will lose forum privileges temporarily. 

 

We had to change the way downloads were distributed because of complaints that people did not understand the point system etc. Another example of how a few bad apples will ruin it for everyone else.

This new rule goes into affect immediately.

 


Here are some of the forum rules:
BDW FAQs

Being a member of this forum is a priviledge and not a right.

You may lose some forum priviledges or be banned from the forum for the following reasons (not all may be listed here):

Violation of privacy: Do Not post personal details about a user that contains their physical location or contact information without their permission. Such details include real name, address details, phone numbers, email addresses, etc.

Copying their pictures and posting them elsewhere could also be a copyright infringement.

Spamming: Accounts which are obviously created to spam the boards will be banned instantly and the offending posts will be deleted.

Accounts that were not created to spam the board but do spam will be banned at the administration and moderators discretion.

Disruption: Posting for the purpose of creating disruption on these boards will not be tolerated (e.g., "baiting" or "trolling"). This includes deliberately violating board guidelines and courtesies or otherwise posting in a manner that is deemed by BDW management to be disruptive or harassing. Please note that creating a new member name for the purpose of disruption places your primary BDW account in jeopardy, as well.

Solicitations NOT Allowed: Solicitations by vendors AND brides are not allowed. It is so innapropriate to pm/email a member about your services or a vendor that you are using unsolicited.

There is no warning on this matter. if you solicit, you may get banned.

These are just a few reasons but forum moderators can ban at their discretion.

Also, for forum etiquette, this video is funny but a good guideline for what good forum etiquette is: Posting and You!

 

It is also important for Members to know other rules and PSA's to avoid getting banned. A good place to start reading is: Why Members get BANNED!

Also, be sure to read the stickied threads in this forum (especially the PSA about Points, Sharing Photographer):

Hi Everyone,

 

the download rule has been updated again.

 

I have had requests from members that do not have time to participate on the forum and would rather pay towards the server cost...members now have an option to pay a one time fee of $25 to download unlimited attachments in lieu of the 150 post count required. the information is in the first post of this thread.

I'm glad I read this thread! I didn't really know about it. Maybe you can post this somewhere that it can be readily seen to all newbies, just so everyone knows the rules clearly on what you can and can't do (as far as asking for templates, all that information). Thanks for this board, it really has been a LIFESAVER for me! :) :) :)

I am pretty sure you're emailed a link to the rules upon joining the forum, at least you were when I joined. If not, then yes, we should. But really, there's nowhere more obvious to put this link! And all of the moderators have links in their siggys as well.

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
