    Hello everybody,
    My name is Jackie, and my fiance and I are planning a DW for November 2010. We both live in the Boston area and are currently trying to decide where among the Caribbean, DR, and Mexico, to have our wedding.

    Any tips / suggestions would be appreciated!

    We are pretty easy-going with this, but here are a few parameters:
    - easy flight access from Boston and Montreal
    - family-friendly resort (e.g. kids can come)
    - relaxing resort layout (not a big fan of gigantic hotel towers)
    - golf nearby would be nice, but not necessary

    Probably the most challenging aspect is finding a resort nice enough that my 5-star resort hopping relatives are not going to be disgusted with, but that also won't be so pricey that less well-off relatives won't be able to afford (or we can't afford to help them out...)

    Thanks,
    Jackie

        Welcome to the forum! Take a look at Beaches Boscobel in Jamaica to see if you are interested. It is kid friendly, and I think the hotel blocks should be more spread out and not too many floors. Golf is also included.

              We are doing the Beaches (AI) Negril and Beaches is the family friendly version of Sandals... not sure about the golf though... my TA said nice things about Hilton Rose Hall and they are both friendly and have a nice golf course (and sig cheaper than Beaches)

                      Welcome... Well what helped me was developing a spreadsheet on excel. to compare and contrast what each resort offered and the wedding packages.. we decided on Sandos Playacar Beach Resort. Its kid friendly and economical. I am not too sure about golf. but if you don't mind spending 1000 for a 3night check moon palace its a beautiful resort and it has golf. it was on our top 5 but for the price on guest we had to let it go. Do lots of research before you make your final choice. Happy Planing...
