    Hey there ladies! I'm glad to have happened onto this forum. It looks like you all have lots of wonderful advice and I plan to make full use of it! lol. So to kick things off, here are my basics:

    1. name: Elise (FI Eric)
    2. wedding date: August 6th, 2011
    3. wedding location: Jamaica (Tentatively Sandals Whitehouse)

    The reason that I am ambivalent is because I'm not entirely sure that I want a destination wedding due to limited choices/expression, but my fiance just has his little heart set on it. I want him to be happy with what our wedding day turns out to be. DF and I want to do an all-inclusive resort. My problem comes with wedding packages that are pre-designed and give little to no choice over flowers, cake, decor etc. So my main goal with use of this forum is to find a resort in Jamaica (preferably all-inclusive), that allows us to have more of an opportunity to express ourselves. I'm here to research but, if you have any info or recommendations, I'm all ears!!

        Congrats and welcome!
        I don't know much about Jamaica, but I know that most of the resorts in Mexico will work with you to create an individual look. At least that is what I was told! Hopefully there is a resort in Jamaica that can help you out.

        Good luck and happy planning. :)

          Congratulations and Welcome. I found when researching that most resorts have packages to choose from but as long as you pay for it you can do pretty much whatever you want and they will find a way to accommodate it.

              Congrats and welcome to the forum! I to was a little apprehensive about resort wedding packages because I didn't like that I couldn't just do what I wanted. However, I ended up finding a package I liked and there are still many ways you can personalize things which I learned with the help of the forum! Good luck with all your planning!

                Hi Elise & Eric,
                Welcome to the forum. Lots of great ideas, especially about locations. Don't settle for a venue or staff that doesn't allow you to have the fabulous wedding of your dreams :) Best wishes and hugs!

                      Congrats and Welcome to the Forum! Although many resorts do post pre-made packages, most will allow you to customize to your liking. Just contact the WC. Good Luck & Happy Planning
