    Hello everyone.

    Im sarah and new to the forum. Me and my fiance have been engaged for 2 years now and have decided to get married in 2012 in St Lucia.#

    I realised only the other day that I need to get on and start sorting things out, so began researching on the internet to no avail!!!!

    I havnt got a clue on where to start!!!

    We have one nearly 2 year old and a 6 month old so the resort needs to be family friendly.

    We have 3 family members going and any friends that want to come can sort themselves out!!!

    We want to be married on the beach and have some couple time together after the ceremony.

    We dont want anything huge or extravogent, just want to be married on the beach, in a beautiful place with our children and family there.

    Any ideas and advice would be greatly received as you are dealing with a brand new, fresh out of the box, bride to be!!! x x

      Welcome to the forum!! I am getting married in Punta Cana, that has an Adult only resort that is connected to a family freindly resort.
      My FI and I are staying in the aduly only resort as are my parents. The rest of our guest with children are staying in the one next door. They names are nh-Royal Beach (adults only) and nh-Real Arena (family oriented).
      My TA's found the resort for me so as far as advice on how to start looking for that yourself, I wouldn't know what to tell you.

      But as for advice on starting wedding planning in general I will say that the best way is to look through various post on this forum and sign up for email list on weddingchannel.com, the knot.com, getmarried.com, brides.com and perfectweddingguide.com. Once you sign up on the email list, the ideas basically come to you. You can also get planning timelines on these sites that are very basic, and can be altered to fit your needs. They are extremely helpful and a good starting place. You'll see things here and there that will peek your interest and then you'll go researching them on the net and that will open up tons of doors for ideas.

      But the best way, by far, is to scroll through the threads on the forum. There is so much out there in terms of wedding planning and most people come up with the best ideas by stumbing onto them through the forum (or blogs or email subscriptions).

      Then you just have to organized the basics and the details will come soon after............

      Happy planning!!!

        Congratulations and welcome!
        I guess the first thing is to choose the exact place where you want to have your wedding and then contact the resort and find out all the information.
        By the way I guess here you will be able to find all answers to your questions!
