    Although I am not paying for my wedding, we are budget-conscience. We were fully planning on Jamaica and had done a vast amount of research on resorts ourselves and with a travel agent. After further investigation, we found Mexico to have better deals.
    Loving married life! <3

      Congrats! There's so much to worry about my fiance and I haven't decided on all the details yet either. I'm thinking Martha's Vineyard. I'm most concerned about what dress I'm going to wear, the photographer, food, how I'm going to decorate and the bridesmaid dresses!

      I'm thinking of buying a bunch for my bridesmaids. I'm thinking a pink and white themed wedding so it would be perfect!

          I started by wanting my family to fly direct where ever we got married, so I went to the BWI website and checked out all the destinations where the airlines flew direct from Baltimore. I was going to do Bahamas but then found the Riviera Maya - south of Cancun in Mexico. Then you only need to pick the resort! We picked the Azul Beach b/c there was a cocktail hour where they bring in a donkey with barrels full of beer. LOL We both HAD TO HAVE A DONKEY AT OUR WEDDING and the decision was made!

          Happy hunting!!!!
          HAHAHA! Your comment about the donkey made me laugh out loud! I'm sure if my husband and I were reading about the resorts and came across that info we'd both look at it each and be like, "hell yeah, that's where we're going", cause what's cooler on your wedding day then a donkey bringing you beer?!?!

                Welcome and congrats! The way you save money on a destination wedding is usually because you have fewer people there...the costs can add up just as quickly as having a wedding back home. You can do it, you just need to be prepared for some sacrifices. Good luck!

                  Congrats and happy planning! I'm also a 2011 bride. We've decided on Jamaica but now are unsure of the resort!

                  58 people booked...and counting!!!
