      Some things that helped me and my fiance...
      Narrowing down a few countries

      Checking out resorts on TripAdvisor.com (Most reviews are honest to the point while a few reviews can be personal issues pretty easy to weed them out but one thing is for sure a real photo --unlike a marketing photo-- that hasn't been retouched or photshopped is worth a thousand words).

      Viewing destination wedding videos on youtube that people had in countries we were considering (seeing how some countries' officiant's oversaw the wedding/ conducted the ceremony was a major factor as well as a deal breaker for some locations).

      Price figuring out which resort had the best bang for the buck

      Talking to a travel agent (was the last thing we did once we narrowed down a country/island really helped get the ball rolling and put our plans into motion).

      Last but certainly not least joining this site was big help in tying together my lose ends and getting ideas and advise from other brides who have been thru the same process (even at your same location). Priceless.

      Remember location is more than half the battle, once you figure that out everything else seems to fall in place.

      ~Happy Planning
      Thanks for the great ideas! I never thought to look on youtube for some videos - that would be great to see. thanks!

        Haha yeah I think it must be our winters! Although so far this year we've been spoiled

        We haven't been there but we were actually looking at this same resort for our own wedding before we decided on the GBP Coba. Price was our main deterrent otherwise we would have chosen it as well! It looks amazing!

                I've been engaged for over 6 months without confirming a date/place for that very reason....I just couldn't decide . BUT I think I've made the right choice. (Moon Palace.)

                GOOD LUCK
