Welcome and congrats! Yes, where there are weddings, there is drama. Where there are destination weddings, the drama is even larger. Sorry you had to go through that stress (I did too, except it was coming from my family) and so glad she has since changed her mind.  There are SO many resources here! It is the single best wedding planning source I found. Happy planning - hopefully the stressful part is done now!

Thanks Peach! Sorry you had to go through that with your own family, that would suck... I try to just laugh and wonder what the next "crisis" will be with her :) Good luck with your planning as well! :)

    Hi everyone,

    My finance and I got engaged two weeks ago and I am feeling overwhelmed already! I was hoping that a destination wedding would be less stressful but I am feeling a whole lot of anxiety in just picking a resort.  We are looking at getting married in Dec. of this year and have narrowed down our options to either Riu Ocho Rios or Coconut Bay Resort in St. Lucia.  They each have their pros and cons and I am nervous about making the wrong decision.  If anyone has any opinions about either I am open to hearing them.

      Hey ladies!

       

      I'm in Ottawa and planning a wedding for January 2015! The location is up in the air and we are still looking at different places, but we have fallen in love with the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana. It's already stressful knowing that some of our relatives don't travel and won't be able to come... but we are hopefully having a low key reception when we return to let them celebrate with us as well. There is a lot of planning at the beginning of organizing a destination wedding and my head is going crazy with where I am supposed to begin! Any help is awesome!

        Congratulations and welcome!

        Now take a deep breath and enjoy it! It is stressful, but fun too... and it goes by quickly! We had a two-year engagement (getting married in about 6 weeks!) and it feels like yesterday I said yes.

        Time will fly by!

                    We chose Riu Ocho Rios on Dec. 6th 2013 for our wedding.  I have been obsessed with this site since I discovered it.  It is very useful and has TONS of info and ideas.  Its great!
