new here...no idea where to start

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

My name is Laura and I am new here. My fiance and I got engaged in January of this year and recently put aside our plans for a wedding in our city to have a destination wedding.

 

We are planning on getting married in March, 2011 in Jamaica. I have no idea where to start or how to even select the best resort. Any ideas would be appreciated

 

Laura

never been to jamaica! I think that's part of the phone. We've had several friends who have gone and I had a friend get married there so it's been well recommended

Welcome to the forum. There is a ton of info regarding resorts on this forum. My suggestion is to either google resorts in Jamaica or buy the magazine "destination weddings" Barnes and noble has a ton of DW magazines. Highlight the resorts that interest you and then check out what brides that have been married there have to say on this site. You will find that brides that have been married give great and very accurate feedback. I know this because I did a site visit to calm my nerves and pretty much the girls on this forum were on the money with their details. Good luck!

I found picking the resort was one of the most difficult of the processes. You need to figure out what you are looking for from the resort (ammenities, wedding packages etc). I picked ROR due to the large size of the resort, its known for its weddings and there was a free wedding option. The resort was not a disappointment when I arrive. It is gorgeous.

The best advice I got on here was to make a list of your must haves and go from there. For instance...Must be all inclusive, must allow children, must offer a wedding on the beach, etc. Having that heart to heart with yourself and your guy will lead you down the right path and hopfully give you some focus.

 

You can even consult a TA. I've only been working with mine for a week and I am so glad I found her. I can already tell she's going to make the process much easier.
