    Hi All,

    I am new to this forum and have founds tons of information in the past two hours since visiting. Stephen proposed on January 28th and I've been planning our wedding ever since. We were both planning (and paid a deposit ) a traditional, large wedding here in Maryland; however we realized we were only "pleasing" the many requests from our family.

    Last week, we decided to reduce the guest list from 200-30 and do it in Jamaica! We've changed our wedding date from October 6, 2011 to July, ?, 2011. I'm here to search out a great wedding venue that will double as a great place to honeymoon. We want to get married on the beach at sunset, but don't want to do it under an arch in front of a gazillion hotel guest patrons, so we're opting for something more private and extremely romantic: lots of flowers and candles. Any help or suggestions are greatly welcomed!

    Thanks for reading.

            Congrats and welcome!
            There are lots of great locations other than all inclusive hotels in Jamaica. I would be more than happy to give you some ideas.
