beach wedding somewhere?!

Recommended Posts

Thanks SOO much for everyone's advice - I am sure I will ask for LOTS of help. Paul and I just got engaged a few weeks ago, and are a little overwhelmed with how to go about selecting a location. Here's what we know so far ...


1) We're inviting about 75 people (including children) so I imagine that the final list will be ~50 or less.


2) I love the idea of the wedding being private, or at least semi-private. Ideally there wouldn't be a ton of beach-goers running around during the ceremony! Though since we plan a late afternoon/evening wedding, that shouldn't be too big an issue.


3) We want the ceremony and reception on the beach (reception can be at least close to the beach if not on it). I imagine a pretty laid back, casual evening.


4) We actually plan on heading to Hawaii after the wedding for the honeymoon - which is the main reason we're looking at S. California and the west side of Mexico. We figured it would be easier to get to Hawaii.


4) One of our main concerns with the date (March, April, or June - May is bad, unfortunately) - is spring break and the Holy Week (Mexican Easter). I think April 7th is bad because of Holy Week, but I am not sure how bad the spring break crowd will be. Does anyone have any input on this topic? Help!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
