    Am I the only male on here? I'm Shane from Denver, CO by the way...

    We're undecided about our destination so far. The good reviewed resorts seem to be out of our guests' price range so we're trying to sift thru the mixed reviews of the more cost effective resorts. Looking at a date between late April and early May 2011.

    We should have a decent sized group of 40-50 with plenty of guests who like to party! Not looking for a spring break drunkfest type of resort (we're mostly all 5-7 years out of college besides the older family members), but something with plenty to do (fun bars, golf, casino, volleyball, water-skiing, etc) and where our guests always have a cold drink in their hand if they choose. Nice beach for activities and lounging along with a nice spot for the ceremony. Basically we just want to have a 3-4 day party with our fam and friends ending with a beautiful beach wedding and nice dinner reception followed by plenty of drinking and dancing. Oh, and all for a reasonable price! So if anyone has any experiences or ideas please let me know!!

    Good luck to everyone with their planning!

            Welcome and congrats! I think there are a few other grooms on here you can connect with it. I think it's great you're involved in the wedding planning. Your wish list sounds great but you might want to try to figure out your country first and then narrow it down from there. There's so much information on the forum to help you pick your destination. Good luck and enjoy your planning!

                One thing that helped me narrow down resorts was deciding if you want all inclusive or not, and if you want a family friendly resort or adults only.
                Good luck, theres lots a great info here!

                    Hey Shane, I don't think you are the only male on here. There are a couple more if I am not mistaken. Welcome to the forum!
