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 (attire, flowers, you name it!) and make sure it's all that you've envisioned for your BIG DAY!

And that's where this phenomenal site comes in: BDW has proven to be invaluable in my planning, and it's comforting to know that there are other brides and grooms out there experiencing the same highs and lows during their planning process -- a friend is always just on the other side of your computer screen!

CONGRATULATIONS and Welcome to BDW...it's a wedding-planning heaven!
I love everything you just wrote!! And totally agree!! Take your time choosing--no need to rush! Family were starting to get on me and irritate me with the details, but I wanted to make sure I scoped every last place out--we only get to do this once!! We changed countries and hotels I don't know how many times, but now I am soooo happy with our decision and don't second guess it one bit!!!! :) :)
I like your last comment to about having other people here to listen whos going through the same stuff! That is really awesome--it kinda reminds me of being in nursing school...I'd complain to FI about it and he'd offer support, but didn't really get the same thing as when talking to other classmates about it--cuz they understood, ya know? Planning a destination wedding is lots different than traditional at home wedding, I think so there aren't too many people who can offer advice....yeah BDW!!!

Hello and congrats! I live in NY too and was fortunate enough to have gone to Bermuda in July and found it to be one of my most favorite islands. Although I did not decide to have my DW there because I was looking for an all inclusive to suit my family and friends, our wish was to have it there. The flight duration from NY is about 1hr and a half which is great. Bermuda is super romantic and has the most strikingly beautiful blue water. You can't rent a car in Bermuda so it's either you cab, bus or moped it. Mopeding it with my FI exploring the island was the best. I stayed on the West End of the island which is very layed back and I feel less touristy. I stayed at 9Beaches Resort which has cabana's in the water is an Eco Friendly resort. It was kind of roughing it but I wanted a different experience. I also visitied Cambridge Beaches for dinner and Fairmont Princess in Southhampton for a massage both very nice resorts. The only thing I have to say that's a little bit negative about Bermuda is that it is kind of expensive.

thanks all! for anyone who's been to bermuda or has explored it as a venue, I'm looking for opinions. (I apologize in advance if I should be posting this somewhere else on the Forum - I'm not too good at this yet). Anyways, has anyone looked at Pink Beach Club, The Reefs, 9 Beaches, Coco Reef or Tucker's Point Hotel? I'd love input from anyone on your thoughts on any of those places!


My fiance and I are pretty laid back, so we don't need anything incredibly formal or conventional, but we do want to be able to customize the event as much as possible - the food, the decor, the drinks - everything. The other major thing is that we want out guests - probably 30 people or so - to be comfortable and well attended to, so great service/staff (and comfortable rooms) are very important. If anyone has a recommendation on where might be the best fit for us, I'd love the feedback!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
