I'm engaged!

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I just got engaged to Mr. Wonderful last weekend and couldn't be happier. I am planning to get married March Break 2011 (I know...it's expensive...brother is a teacher). I have no idea where to go but am slowly narrowing it down thanks to all ya'll. I'm finding it a little difficult to get an idea of the cost for our guests because prices don't come out this far in advance. Orginally, I wanted to keep it below 1500 all inclusive but it's starting to look more like 2000 for that time of year in Punta Cana. Any thoughts? I don't want to end up somewhere affordable but crumby. Thanks advance for any help and congratulations to all of you.....and I hope I posted this right.

Congrats and welcome3.gif to the forum! I found the initial planning stage really overwhelming, especially since I had never travelled before. I'd say your best bet is to start making a list of things that you want in a hotel and rate each item in terms of importance. Once you've done that you can start eliminating some options. Talk to a TA too! Good luck and happy planning!

Congratulations on your engagement! I agree with Nicole - start making a list of possible areas you might like & then research them. You can also search the subforums here on different areas/resorts. I also found tripadvisor.com really helpful for hotel reviews & pics.

Good luck planning!

Congradulations on your engagement!!! Welcome to the forum, this place is so great.

 

Something that helped for me was getting the hotels in my price range, and then going on the designated threads on BDW forum and going on trip advisor. This really gives you an insight on what the hotel will offer you and if you think it will match your needs.

The girls will actually list out what they paid and all of that good stuff!

he DR sounds like a great location and is usually really good price wise, good luck with everything!!

    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
