Hey girls, just wanted to know where everyone is getting married (place and resort) and why you chose your location..

 

I'll start...

 

I got married in cabo...we knew we wanted a wedding on/near the beach...since we are in cali we wanted flights to be less than 5 hours. we were debating between cabo and hawaii.

 

we wanted it to be in a surf area because hubby and his friends surf.

 

Cabo was alot less expensive and the flight was under 3.5 hours so that was how we decided! hubby and i are super practical people. we also love to travel so even though this was a destination wedding, we wanted to pick a destination that would be easier for our guests.

 

we had a great wedding...it went flawlessly!

We choose Cabo because we wanted a place with a beautiful back drop, and knew we wanted to get married on the beach. I actually wanted Hawaii as well, but since I was married b-4 and we went their for our honeymoon we wanted something fresh for US. A place that neither of us has been to.

I am not sure why we chose Jamaica at first. But when we started figuring out what resort a friend of mine had went to Couples Resort at Ocho Rios and gave a rave review. So we decided to go there.

We choose Cabo because we wanted to get married at the beach. We wanted a "different" kind of wedding, something that would be unique and memorable. We've both never been to Cabo, so we're thinking of it as an adventure.

 

When we were choosing a location, hurricane's in Cancun and such stuck out in our minds as well which is why we avoided that side of Mexico.

 

Our family is spread out all over the US, so we figured if everyone had to fly anyway we might as well go to the beach. Go CABO!

We chose Cabo because we wanted somewhere where people from the east and west coasts could meet, and we didn't want to worry about hurricanes! I have to admit when I picked Mexico I was thinking things would be more affordable than in the US -- but I was definitely wrong about that. Cabo is many things, but it is not cheap!

We chose San Jose Del Cabo because I really wanted to get married on the beach & I love Cabo! My FI has never been, so he is super excited to spend our wedding there.

 

A destination wedding is right for us for a few reasons:

1. it's non-traditional & we are SO non-traditional in nature!

2. This is his 2nd marriage, so something different is good.

3. We wanted to limit our guest list to close friends & important family...hopefully it works!

4. Our families are mostly in CA & AZ, so it's a nice geographical center point.

We chose Cabo for a myriad of reasons, but the two most important were:

 

1. Neither of us had been there

 

2. The area is newer so the hotel decor is more update

We choose to have a DW because all the weddings we've attended recently end to fast! We want to enjoy our wedding and make the party last for days! (not to mention we wanted a way to cut the guestlist!)

 

We choose Vallarta because my parents family is from the same state and I have family who live about 4 hours away who can help with the little details if need. (ie, I may get my centerpeices made in Mexico!)

I chose Jamaica after realizing that a wedding in Maui consisted of possibly too many people since my entire family is in California and Nevada and because it was too expensive. A friend told us about an all inclusive wedding she went to and I thought that sounded great...Sandals just came to mind and I saw they had free weddings if you stayed their for your honeymoon. I was hooked. I liked the beaches part of sandals because I have family and friends who are single or who have kids and I didn't want to exclude them.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
