    Hello everyone! I'm having such a great time going through the forums learning and getting ideas from everyone's fabulous destination wedding. So THANK YOU!!!

    Okay...so I got engaged on New Years Day this year and will hopefully get married in May/June 2011. We've been struggling with family on whether we're having a destination wedding or not. It's been a back and forth and *fingers crossed* we will be able to move forward with a DW.

    We are considering either Hawaii (Oahu) or Cabo for our DW. There are pros and cons to each of those places. For example, I know Hawaii will be super expensive so I would really need to research and budget. We recently bought a new home so we are on a bit of a budget. We are thinking about only 20-30 people will be able to attend so maybe renting a vacation home or villa and having the reception dinner there. I figured that would save $$ and we can all share accomdations since it will only be family and bridal party. As for the ceremony my FI is Catholicso it will need to be in a Catholic Church. I've reserched and there are catholic churches in each place.

    If anyone has any tips, suggestions, or experience they like to share I would greatly appreicate it!!

    OH...another thing we will be paying for our grandparents, parents, and my younger brother (flight and stay) so that's why we will be on a TIGHT BUDGET! Is this doable?? We are pretty causal so no need for formalities.
