    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.

                  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!!
