Newbie still deciding on a place/date

Recommended Posts

My name is Stephanie. My fiance and I have been engaged since April, and we have been through a lot since then (surgery, two moves, a new house, and a successful 3-month job hunt). We just want to get away and have a wedding that celebrates US without dealing with the craziness our families will cause (mine is full of judgmental wannabe bourgeois types, his is very blue-collar with a lot of addiction - talk about class conflict.


We hope to get married next fall - and we have a running list of these places for our wedding:


1. Spain,

2. New Zealand,

3. Costa Rica, and

4. Italy


I would love ANY tips and advice. I wish I could do the wedding including both our families, but we think this may be best given our circumstances.

welcome Stephanie.


It sounds like you've really thought about it, and if that's what you and your FH want...do it your way.


and if you know that's how its going to be, planning a wedding is stressful enough without all the dramas you believe your families will bring.


congrats, follow your heart and do what's right for you both.


happy planning!

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
