    Hi Everyone!
    I am on my initial stage of planning a destination wedding... For now I am looking for a perfect location...
    Also, i am looking for for a local rabbi who can do the ceremony. My fiance is Jewish and I am not... Conversion takes over a year...but I do not want to wait so long to get married!!!
    So... I need a perfect location and a good rabbi! Turns out, they are not that easy to find!
    If you already went through something similar, please let me know!
    =)

          I am thinking Carribean...
          I want a nice 5* hotel...but at the same time something which will not be too much of a financial strain on my guests... So its will be Jamaica, Mexico or Dominican...
          Thanks so much and good luck to everyone!!

              Good luck! My SIL is Jewish and she married my brother (not Jewish), they had a non religious ceremony.

                We had a non-religious ceremony with a few jewish traditions thrown in (hubby is jewish). We had his mom explain the 'breaking of the glass' at the end of the ceremony and did the 'hora' and the 'chair dance' at the reception! It got everyone up and dancing! Good luck with your planning, I'm not sure how easy it is to find a Rabbi in the Dominican... =)

                    it might be tough to find a rabbi to marry you if you are not Jewish. I would suggest doing a non religious ceremony and like the other girl said, add some Jewish traditions.
