I'm planning a Carribbean wedding for Feb 2011. I have spent over 20 hours on this site and resort sites and I feel like I'm getting absolutely nowhere. I'm having under 10 people come so I didn't think I should get a travel agent but I can't even limit the options because I keep forgetting which ones I liked or looked at already!!! Any advice on a way to start? I feel like I'm just going in circles. I do know I want all inclusive and that's about the only limiting factor I have. I've read so many posts that say this site was a life saver. I am planning this solo (the fiance said what ever I want) and I thought that was a good thing but it's turning out to be a little difficult! Ideas?? I'm also a very unorganized person, lol

Do you picture yourself on the beach? In a garden? In a gazebo overlooking the water?
How much do you want your guests to pay? $1000 a couple for 4 nights? $1500 a couple for 4 nights
Do you want a private reception for your wedding? Do you want a reception out underneath the stars or inside a restaurant or a disco?
Will there be children attending? If not, are you okay with a kid friendly resort, or would you like something more adult like?
do you want a huge resort with a ton of stuff for your guests to do, or would you like a more chic hotel where you guys can hang out by the pool drinking margaritas all day?
I think putting together your dream wedding wishlist will definitely help you narrow down your search.
I also think that having a travel agent, even if it were just the two of you, is a really good idea. They are worth their weight in gold... trust me!
And I just realized your from Green Bay! As in Green Bay Wisconsin?? If so, hello my fellow wisconsinite!

They all look gorgeous though, that's the problem! My confirmed guests are our parents and possibly the maid of honor and best man. As long as it's not outrageous I think they will all be willing to pay what it takes to come. I have always been afraid of being a bridezilla and to be honest as long as things run fairly smoothly I'm going to be happy. I think a dream wedding checklist would be helpful and I guess I've been too worried about accommodating everyone else. I just don't know how you girls do this, I thought I had it narrowed down to a region (Bahamas) but then I started looking around and I'm back to the drawing board. Maybe it's time to start a spreadsheet!

then you need to figure out your dream country to be married in, have your list of what you really want for your day, and go from there. Once you figure that out and then get it booked you will feel so much better.
