    We choose Cabo for many reasons:
    1. We love, love, love Mexico.
    2. We had never been to Cabo.
    3. All of my co-workers (who are from Mexico) recommended it.
    4. It is a destination that is easy to get to from different areas of the U.S.
    5. It offers many activities, such as golf, fishing, etc. that will be enjoyable for our friends and family.
    6. It's beautiful!

      We chose Dominican Republic because it was not Jamaica (my husbands family is from Jamaica and they wanted to go somewhere else), we also would have had alot of FH relatives that we didn't really know, expect to be invited. Cost also came into play, DR was cheaper then most places (we are paying for 8 people). The beaches are breathtaking in Punta Cana, and the resort we chose is newer, and accessible, my daughter is sick and needs a wheelchair.

        We chose the British Virgin Islands because we went there together last year for a vacation and we lived on a small sailboat for 5 days in September (which is rather warm and buggy). But after that trip I was absolutely sure that we had staying power and that I really wanted to marry him.

        Plus the BVI is beautiful, not overly developed and is a sailing mecca which we both love. The other great things were that even though it is another country they use the US dollar for their currency, English is the official language-so low threshold for those that aren't used to international travel.

        We found this great, small hotel with a world renowned restaurant so that clinched it, and we can do some island hopping for our honeymoon since we're already in the Caribbean.

          1. I have always wanted to go there
          2. a family member goes twice a year and recommened the hotel he stays at
          3. a friend just moved there and we have a US contact
          4. it was a very affordable trip for everyone
          5. rainforests and beaches, so much to do!!

            We chose Jamaica because:
            1. It is a relatively short flight from the east coast.
            2. It is affordable for our guests.
            3. We didn't want to do "traditional" b/c both of our dads have passed away.
            4. Mike has been to 2 weddings there and loved it.
            5. It seems like one big party and that's what we want our wedding to be!

              We picked Puerto Vallarta; more specifically Las Caletas.

              We chose PV mainly because Joe really wanted to go there. After months of searching locations PV was the one we both agreed on. And since it was our first vacation together it had some sentimental value as well.

              Aslo, we wanted a private beach and were finding that it was practically impossible to get one. Once we found out Las Caletas privided a private beach in this beautiful location we were sold!

              Also, Mexico was a top runner because it was affordalbe for guests, and we love mexico!!

                We decided on Lake Tahoe because we are poor!! Tee hee.
                We wanted to get married someplace other than our hometown, St. Paul, and couldn't ask our family (all of whom live paycheck to paycheck) to fly some place outside of the US. That and we really aren't "beach" people.
                We thought about Charleston, SC and Vegas as well. We settled on Tahoe because it is beautiful. As luck would have it we may end up getting married on the beach because of the size of our group.

                  We chose Ocho Rios, Jamaica because it seemed the most similar to Hawaii (with the beautiful lush gardens, waterfalls, mountains, and ocean) without the expense.

                  We chose Sandals Grande Ocho Rios Resort because it's a great AI and includes our welcome reception, rehearsal dinner, et al.; affordable for us and our guests; a short flight for our east coast guests; and b/c we LOVE Jamaican food.

                    When I was younger my father was in the military and was posted to Bermuda twice, so for me, it was more about the feeling of going home to get married.

                    We chosed the Coco Reef Resort for our wedding, due to the beautiful wooden walkway down to the beach. The first time I saw it online I knew that was where I wanted to get married.

                      We chose Cabo San Lucas because we wanted a destination no one in our group had been to. We live in FL and have the beach so other beach locations didnt appeal to us - but the desert and pacific will be new experiences for us - and Italy was expensive
