New and confused!!

Recommended Posts

Welcome Amy! You guys sound like me and my husband. We settled on the sleepy town of Tulum, MX. It has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and has all sorts of accomodations from AI's, cabana hotels, to private villas (one built by Pablo Escobar).

Welcome and congrats, Amy!

 

Here's a really wonderful venue you should check out:

Cuixmala

 

I photographed a wedding there, and it is really a spectacular place. To get a better feel for what a wedding held there would look like, you can check out the Cuixmala gallery of images on my website.

 

If you decide you'd rather have your wedding in a vineyard type setting, you should check out these venues:

 

Mayacamas Ranch, Calistoga, California: Weddings

Best wishes,

Tod

Congrats and welcome. My FI and I started out with lists: need to haves and nice to haves; then we prioritized both. I have a great Travel Agent (TA) at Wedding Destinations and Planning | Destination Weddings .com named Christina Boren. Once I communicated to her what was important to us, she gave her suggestions and emailed me info including links and "guestimates" on prices based on her current research. This helped us enormously and we were able to pick a location and resort because of her input.

 

I hope that this helps and happy planning!

We knew we wanted an island but didn't know which one so we asked our travel agent to give us photos of certain places (bahamas, bermuda, st. lucia, etc...) and recommendations from her clients on which they preferred & why. We ended up deciding on Turks & Caicos...remote, georgeous beaches, great snorkeling & my FI's favorite...swim up bars ha!

Thanks again you are all so helpful, it is so great finding this forum where everyone is so willing to give advice based on their own experiences.

 

So we have started to narrow it down, but probably not in the most conventional of ways!! My FI went to his cousin's wedding in the Dominican Republic before we met, and we just went to our best friends wedding in Riviera Maya - both were stunning weddings but we have decided not to go to either of those areas as we feel that we would be taking away from their wedding experiences, we would rather leave those places special for them.

 

I am really tempted with Italy, I spent some time studying and working out there, and I love it, but we have to work out the logistics and the expense of it. We spent a week in the RIU in Aruba in January, and that was gorgeous, but I want to look more into the Carribbean islands, and also if Italy does not work out then maybe the Californian vineyards.

 

I think that my FI is in for a really fun weekend this weekend with all these discussions ... I am so scared that I am going to turn into bridezilla!!!!!

 

Thanks again to you all, A

My friends son got married in Italy & it was absolutely beautiful! After working on our wedding for a year I think we may have saved some money doing a CA vineyards theme but I just love the beach so I couldn't pass this up. Good luck with your planning!
