Newbie not sure on destination

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I booked Sandals Whitehouse for 7/31/10, but now we're waffling and thinking of something totally different like Oahu! Fortunately, we only have the resort reserved and it's 100% refundable at this point. We just don't know how impacted Jamaica will be by the Haiti earthquake releif efforts; hurricanes in July/August; etc. Also, I saw some Youtube postings of couples on honeymoons and someone's home video of her wedding. Seriously as she walked down the isle there was a young couple on lawn chairs holding up drinks! Really?!

Congrats and welcome!

 

Not to be a downer, but the situation in Hawaii won't be much better as far as people-watching goes. Public beaches mean even MORE people, so I think if you're planning on having a beach destination wedding, you're going to run into this at some point.

 

That said, I totally approve of Oahu! *wink, wink*

Thanks you guys. Annabanana, I think you're right that even in Hawaii we will have the crowds to deal with. I keep thinking our indecision is really just a matter of "the grass always looks greener on the other side" and every resort looks super on their website and not-so-super in home videos...especially, when the videos are homemade.

hey

 

welcome to the site :) find out as much information as you can about your resort you've booked and how affected it's likely to be - as it's fully refundable atm, I'd act sooner rather than later - if you decide to stick with it, chances are, you can always rebook it!

 

congrats on your upcoming wedding and HAPPY PLANNING!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
