Hey everyone,

 

I just decided this week that I'd had enough of the planning involved in an at home wedding. We are going to do a destination wedding instead!

 

I'm aware that there is still some planning to do, but I LOVE travelling and cant wait to pick a resort and start planning for this!

 

My name is Amanda and I havent decided where to go just yet, but know I want my wedding to occur in early 2011.

 

Any suggestions would be wonderful!

Hello Amanda, Welcome to the forum, there are tons of great information about different resorts, We are getting married in Turks and Caicos on July 14th, 2010. Will keep you posted on the resort as planning is in the process.

 

 

Cheers - Michelle

Hello fellow canuck,

 

Welcome to the forum and happy planning! I'd suggest narrowing your resorts down to a top 3-5 and then do extensive research to choose your location. Good luck!

Luckily your from Ottawa so your flights will be direct no matter where you choose to go in the Caribbean. We chose Cancun because of the direct flights and the area of the Mayan Riviera has so much to do outside the resorts for our adventurous guests. From there we just picked a few resorts that had features we needed(disco, 5 star food, located on the beach) and ones that had WCs that came highly recommended, since they are the one person you deal with until you actually get to your resort. The Karisma Resorts have US based WCs which helps with the language barrier!

Good luck and pick more than one since price and other factors can knock out a resort and you don't want to feel overwhelmed starting from scratch again. :)

Welcome fellow Canuck,

 

I find that planning a destination wedding is not stressful however if you are having at home receptions it gets to be a little more like a real wedding so just keep that in mind. If i were to do it over i wouldn't do an at home reception. I haven't had it yet but it just adds to the stress, hopefully i will feel differently after it is all said and done.

 

good luck with everything
