      I'm really hoping this forum can help me. I am already completely lost! We want to have a wedding somewhere in the Caribbean. I don't want to go through all that blood test and xray crap. I'm afraid of needles and I'll be thinking about that the whole way there! (I know that sounds really stupid considering it's one of the most important things in my life) but I just don't want to deal with all that. I have tried to find which places which require it and which don't and haven't had much luck. Other than I know Mexico does.

      I'm looking for an all inclusive package for the wedding, food and rooms for my immediate family. I am guessing many people on this forum have already gone through a lot of work and was hoping someone could throw some suggestions my way so I can at least have a starting point! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

            Congrats and welcome to the forum! You'll find a lot of help here and if you are worried about doing the legal ceremony in another country due to blood tests and stuff then consider doing the legal aspect before you leave, that's what FI and I are doing and many other brides I know are doing the same it eliminates doing all that and having to deal with translating documents and waiting on them.

                    Congrats and welcome to the forum! My FI and I will do the legal part of it before we leave for our Mexican wedding as well, to make things easier down there.

                    Good luck planning.
