* Can I have a beach wedding (replace beach with gazebo, church, garden... whatever you want)
* Can I have a private Reception? How much per person extra is it? Can it be outdoors? Can I have a DJ? How long can I play music for? Can I have a custom cake?
* Are children allowed?
* Can I bring in my own vendors for photography/makeup/hair/cake/dj services, etc
* Do you offer group rates?
Questions like that will start to get you down the right path. Good luck!

I then went to my travel agent with a couple of my favorite picks, and asked her for other suggestions as well. She then went ahead and requested the pricing for my top three resorts.

Some things I had to keep in mind:
Travel duration for elder guests - Meaning shortest flight possible to destination.
Not too big of a resort, too much walking for the grandparents etc would be too much esp with the heat.
Kid friendly, which was already mentioned...some have kids clubs etc.
Look at what the wedding packages cover and how many people. If you are having a large wedding, the standard "free" package usually covers around 10 people...everything else becomes an additional cost.

So what I did was research resorts online that looked nice & had good ratings(i.e. orbitz, hotels.com, tripadvisor.com) and I went to each website and requested a proposal and pictures. Once I got proposals, I created a spreadsheet where I listed all my favorite hotels along with prices and pros & cons for each. Then I compared each one until I narrowed it down to one choice. I'm so happy & in love with my choices and I think it's because I know that weighed all my options very carefully so there are no regrets. It was very overwhelming to think about until I got it all down on paper.
Try a spreadsheet...i think once you get everything out of your head and down on paper it will feel less overwhelming. Good luck!
