    Hello, I'm so happy I found this forum, because it is so hard to plan a wedding via the computer without seeing these venues and destinations first hand! We just got engaged (our 4th anniversary, last weekend July 4, 2010) and are really wanting a destination wedding...but very intimidated at this point. I love the idea of Hawaii, but am very surprised by the cost. He loves the idea of Jamaica.

    I am pretty sure we can get at least 50 friends and family to Hawaii, Mexico, or the Caribbean...but I can't seem to find a lot of info on reception packages.

    Does anyone have pricing and pictures for the Royal Plantation in Jamaica, that place seems lovely.

    Thanks for any/all of the advice! Laura

      Hi Laura- welcome to the forum and congrats on your recent engagement!! I'm not familiar with the Royal Plantation but I'm sure if you use the search function up top you might find more information. Definitely take some time to browse the locations you're interested in to help narrow down your location. Everyone on here is very helpful so ask any and all questions you have. Good luck and enjoy your planning!!

        You might want to consider a destination wedding travel agent. There are lots on here, I didn't know about this site and started using destinationweddings.com and have been pleased with them. There is also a company called beach bum vacations that alot of girls use.

        As far as reception info and costs, I just started looking at the packages offered by the resorts in the areas we were interested in.

        Good luck!

                Congratulations! I'm sure you must be super excited about having a destination wedding (I know I am!!). To answer your questions, I would advise you to enter the name of the resort into the search function to see what you come up with. Also, I don't know if you're aware, but this site was started by a travel agent that specializes in DW's. I would suggest that you go to the upper right hand corner of this page and click on the banner for a "Destination Wedding Agent". It's all here on this one site.
