    Hi there,

    My name is Amy and I am recently engaged. My FI, Chad, and I are looking into a destination wedding next year. However, we are so confused as to which country to go to!!

    I am originally from the UK and moved over to the States two years ago to be with Chad and we have finally decided to tie the knot!! So, basically we are going to have people flying in from all over the world and we want to make it as special as we can for everyone.

    We have both traveled, but predominantly with backpacks and on a tiny budget, and now it is time to do the total opposite. Does anyone have any fantastic ideas of where we could go? Although a beach wedding was my initial reaction, I am also up for considering a vineyard, or anywhere else that would be really very special for us both, and is going to be a spectacular backdrop to the ceremony and photos.

    I would love to hear any of your suggestions, particularly if you have been researching for a while and have come across some really fabulous places.

    Thanks so much, and congratulations to all of you who are recently engaged or married!!
    Aimes x

      Congrats on your engagement! I think most of us here would agree that choosing the country and resort was THE hardest part of the whole process! Try to remember that you can't please everybody so go somewhere YOU two want and stay at a resort that YOU like! Don't stress and enjoy this time! WELCOME!

        Congrats and welcome to the forum! Choosing the destination is hard but make a list of all the things that are must haves and it will help narrow things down for you.

          Congrats & I agree with the 2 posts above! Choosing the location is the hardest part. You just have to figure out what you are really looking for in a location and start your research with places that have those things...Good luck!

            Hi Amy & Chad,
            Welcome to the forum! The Finger Lakes area in upstat New York is fabulous. It is just a quick hop(45minutes) from NY city (easy for your guests to fly into) and has several lakes with beautiful vineyards overlooking them. You would lOVE it! the Caribbean beaches are also great. Either way, happy planning,

                Congrats and Welcome to the BDW forum. I also agree that finding a country is the hardest part but once you find the country everything will fall into place. The best thing to do right now is to research and "window shop". This website forum is definitely a good place to start. Just look around to see what places catch your eye. Then also consider what you want out of your destination wedding experience and which locations match up with that.

                ~Good Luck and Happy Planning : )

                  Take care, Amy

                      Indeed chosing your destination is mind boggling! Lists of must have and don't want will help and once you've norrowed it down to the country/region check out BDW forums as well as Reviews of vacations, hotels, resorts, vacation and travel packages - TripAdvisor for traveller reviews.
                      Have fun planning your DW!
