    Hi All -

    I'm new on here and just learning how it all works. I have been engaged two months and am having trouble deciding between Hawaii and Cabo San Lucas. Any suggestions on how I can make a final decision? I wish I could afford to visit both locations, but I don't and time is running out. I'm hoping for a June wedding in Cabo or a September wedding in Hawaii.

      Congrats and welcome to the forum! Try reading some different reviews from brides in both locations and maybe that will help you out some.

      congratulations...welcome to the forum. BDW (best destination wedding.com) was my wedding saver and I'm not kidding!

      I was deciding between Costa Rica and Mexico (didn't even know which coast!) when I first joined. I did A LOT of googling to narrow places down. Think of what is the most important to you. There will be many factors that may come into play, for instance:

      What is your budget?
      Can all of your guests afford HI (usually much more expensive than Mexico)
      Do you want kids to allowed?
      Do you want all inclusive?
      Do you want a lot of activities (Cabo may not be the best bet if you want to get out and do a lot of things)?
      Do you want really white sand?
      Do you want to swim (most places in Cabo you can't swim in the ocean)?

      Once you figure it all out head into different sections of BDW to help find your answer!
      Good luck!

            Hello -
            I would make a pro and con list. You will want to consider budget and cost of travel, etc.

            Good luck with your choice!
