    I'm kate & my Fianc© is Danny.
    We got engaged last September, & have since decided to have the big day abroad!
    We would like to get married on our anniversary (28th March) or around there,
    But as we'd like family & so on to be able to come,
    & they need time to save,
    We are thinking 28th March 2012.

    As for where - we have no idea at present!
    Preferably somewhere not in Europe - so perhaps Sri Lanka, Cuba, Mexico etc.
    We are looking for reccomendations if possible please!

    We would like the ceremony to be on the beach,
    To be able to have a wedding breakfast,
    & for the hotel to be quite modern.
    Also needs to allow children - as we have two under five & my sister will only be fourteen.

    One hotel I'd quite liked the look of in Sri Lanka was the Eden Spar & Resort.
    If anyone has any information on this?

    Any help will be really good please! & very much appreciated!
    Would rather hear from people going through it,
    Than the travel agent whose just trying to make commission!

    Thank you

            Welcome to the forum! This site has a lot of info about resorts in Cuba and Mexico, not sure about Sri Lanka. Take some time to search for info and read member's reviews to help you narrow down your location. Once you've chosen your location most of the other details should fall into place. Good luck and enjoy your planning!!

                    Welcome, Kate!

                    I've been to Taj Exotica and Eden Resort in Sri Lanka, doing wedding shootings.
                    I liked Eden much more than Taj: services, surrounings, rooms. Maybe brides have another opinion, but personally I would recommend Eden Resort.
                    I would also advise you to view resorts in Seychelles and Maldives, there are so many good ones!
                    If you have any questions - you are welcome!
