    3.still looking

    I just got engaged march 19 , so Im new to this whole wedding thing. I have been looking around and planning some stuff. I was going with a traditional one at home but even on a budget ( just a ceremony and dinner at a restaurant) with all the other stuff will still be around 10K and be honest I want a wedding as most women do, but sometimes it hard to justify giving so much money to others. Im only 26 and its just me and my fiance paying to be honest we dont have the money to spend

    Anywho here comes the idea of a destination wedding. I can get a great honeymoon and wedding in one and hopefully family and friends will come, and at a real budget I can afford. So I hope this forum will help me in deciding the best bang for my buck.

      Hello Welcome! Congrats on your recent engagement and glad you found the site! It will definitely help you to decide if a destination wedding is for you and if so, where to go! I chose a DW for some of the same reasons you are considering... cost, smaller group of people, and opportunity to travel.

      Best wishes on your wedding planning!

        Hello and welcome! I too feel that the budget of a DW is more manageable that one at home especially when that home in NYC. Do you have any destinations in mind yet? You will find a whole lot of information here. So happy planning.

                      Welcome and Congrats on your recent engagement! This is the most exciting time for you and your fiance. Take your time when deciding on your location. Just as a warning, not everyone will be thrilled but if this is what you want- go for it!!

                      I'm from NYC also and I understand how expensive it can be to plan a local wedding. From the beginning we wanted a DW and I admit I did waver a bit because of family pressure but now I have NO REGRETS! We're paying for it all by ourselves so no one has a vote.lol. Those who love you will understand.

                      Good luck! You've found a great place and wonderful people.

                      BRIDE + GROOM + 60 GUESTS!!
