After taking Mexico out of the running I thought of Puerto Rico. It was my first US Territory choice, mainly because my fathers family is from there (my mom's family is from Mexico).

 

Brian and I got in such a HUGE fight over that because he was concerned with the drug crime there which is why he veteoed that choice and his family is really ummm... idk, they have stereotypes about Latinos (ie. his mom calls everyone who is Latino "Mexican" kind of annoying, but she's harmless I guess!). It was amazing enough we got his white bread family to go to Saint Thomas!

 

I personally think it would be awesome. I've only been there in passing (airport layover), but the view from the sky was awesome! You should go for it.

I've flown into PR to board a cruise ship, and I didn't see any pretty places there. I, of course, can't say there aren't beautiful beaches/resorts there, but a lot of times the cruise ships are near the pretty part of town. Just my opinion!

if we were on the east coast I would have def chosen PR as a location! FI father was born there and we visited the island two years ago.. I truly fell in love with it.

 

we stayed at the Wyndham Condado (now its the Condado Plaza and has been remodled San Juan Hotels & Puerto Rico Accommodations - Condado Plaza San Juan Hotel & Casino) and saw two weddings.. we stayed at El Convento in San Juan one night El Convento Hotel and Resort and its a great location for a wedding. the church is across the street. Its a small boutique hotel, but it is literally in the middle of san juan, you can step out to the blue cobble stone streets, its beautiful! Old San Juan- Puerto Rico - VirtualTourist.com

 

We also had a chance to visit El San Juan Hotel and Casino (well the bar, casino and lobby- they have a club but it was closed on that Sunday we visited) San Juan Puerto Rico Hotels & Beachfront Resorts - El San Juan Hotel & Casino

 

We had a glance of El Conquistador when our tour bus was dropping off some guests, it looked amazing too, but far from San Juan. Puerto Rico Hotels & Beachfront Resorts - El Conquistador Golf Resort & Casino

 

 

And talk about photo op's.. El moro El Moro, Old San Juan | Photo is perfect, you can walk there from Old San Juan.. you have this old world meets paradise feel! I can I say it once more, BEAUTIFUL!!!!

yes, we have found that many of the resorts are near the cruise port and that is something we are definitely not interested in! our taste tends to go towards unique, luxury, small, intimate, boutique, one-of-a-kind, special, etc.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
