I need suggestions for my destination:-)
Posted 03 September 2009 - 06:53 PM
My dream wedding would be to get married in an old rustic small chapel and have a reception at a resort or restaurant somewhere safe for rain (less stress) overlooking a gorgeous view of the ocean (not other resort visitors). I think my group will be around 40-50 and I'm hoping to do this on a budget of about 15K. The location has to be flight price friendly from Ft Lauderdale and DC (around $300 or less) and I am hoping to find options for less than $200/night for my guests if it isn't all inclusive. Can someone point me in the right direction? I will appreciate all types of suggestions, including those off the beaten path.
Thank you in advance. I know I'm going to love this community.

OMG -- that's so great that you just got engaged on Saturday! CONGRATS and aside from saying "yes!" to your fiance, you just made another fabulous decision to join BDW - You're gonna LOVE being a part of this amazing forum!!!
I am also a Jamaica Bride (getting married at Sandals Grande Ocho Rios, in beautiful Ocho Rios, Jamaica in May 2010), and we selected this resort because it is an all-inclusive that offers a WIDE variety of room levels for guests to choose from (so there is bound to be something available that fits everyone's chosen budget). Plus, there is a wedding gazebo on the property on the Manor side of the resort (there are 2 sides, Manor & Riviera) that I absolutely fell in love with, so that helped me make my decision as well!
If you are okay with the idea of not getting married on the sand, then this gazebo may be as appealing to you as it was to me! It's called the Roman Gazebo and this is a pic I found of another couple on the SANDALS website:
My best advice as you start down the road to your wedding day would be just to take your time and do lots of research before you book or buy anything (resort, attire, flowers, you name it!) and make sure it's all that you've envisioned for your BIG DAY!
CONGRATULATIONS and Welcome to BDW...it's a wedding-planning heaven!

the girls on this site are really helpful and I'm sure you'll have lots of ideas in no time (being in the UK, I'm a bit stuck to help you out on prices - sorry!)
congrats tho and happy planning!
