      Congrats and happy planning! I know Jamaica has some really great packages. A few resorts even give you a free ceremony if you stay a certain # of nights.

        Hi Shannon - I'm also trying to stick to a small budget. Don't worry you can still have your dream wedding no matter what the budget is. There is a ton of things you can do on your own. This forum is great, you'll get a ton of ideas!! Good Luck!

          Hi Shannon! We chose a destination for this exact same reason. It is just way more affordable. We are doing a destination wedding in Mexico that is not in a resort. But the cost is really quite affordable although this depends on how many guests you invite. I hope the forum helps you figure it out!

                  Welcome Shannon. I second everything the other girls said. I also think you should just keep in mind that there are no rules for a DW. If you don't want to do a cocktail hour after the reception and want your guests to enjoy the rest of the day until the dinner, no biggie, they may even enjoy that more. Plus, realize that there are some things that are simply worth doing yourself. For example, I know a lot of the girls do their own centerpieces and bring them down because some of the hotels charge $90 per centerpiece for something quite small and not what they want. Oh, and another tip, check out Vistaprint. Sign up for their emails and you will receive all kinds of offers for free stuff. You simply pay for shipping, there is a thread on here about it and I'm sure you would find it helpful. You will def find other great ideas on here. Best of luck.

                      Welcome and congrats1 You may want to check out the resorts that offer free weddings. Then you add what you want to it, or add nothing and your costs will stay low. Good luck and happy planning!
