    We are thinking dominican republic, virgin islands, or jamaica?? Any opinions?
    If you don't have your heart set on a particular destination, here are some things to consider:

    * Cost (room and airfare)
    * All-Inclusive or Not
    * Proximity to Airport
    * Activities in and around the destination you choose
    * Kid-Friendly or Adults Only
    * Sandy beach or rocky/snorkel beach
    * Wedding Package options (of course!)

    If it is basically just you and groomie, then it really might not matter too much. But if you are wanting a larger crowd, you might want to consider some of the above.

    You could always do a sample search on something like funjet.com to see basic airfare/room rates. Then you can check tripadvisor to see the reviews. You don't want to end up in a dump :)

    Everyone will have their preferences. I am partial to the Riviera Maya, I love it! I've been to Jamaica & the USVI & BVIs. I would love to visit the Dominican Repub. but the airfare always seems so high so we've never made it there. Good luck and happy planning!

        Your post was awesome!!  I think my fiance and I are about to book here for July 2011.  

        You mentioned buying sashes at home - can you recommend a website or a place to do that?  I hadn't even thought about that but it's a great idea!!
