    Hi All,

    My name is Stacy and I am recently engaged. We are opting to have a destination wedding, however, I have yet to decide the destination. I have been reviewing others post in the hopes of limited my options. We are definitely looking to marry next year sometime outside of our hometown, Chicago. It may be in the States, or maybe not! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a bunch!

                  Stacy congratulation and welcome to the forum. There are so many good ideas listed on here. I would suggest writing down your must haves, looking at your budget while keeping your guest's budgets as well, and then talking with a travel specialist as it can be overwhelming if you don't have a set WD country.

                  I am originally from the Chicago burbs and now live in San Diego. What neighborhood do you live in?

                  Happy planning!

                    Congrats Stacy! Welcome to the forum :) I'm sure you'll find tons of helpful information on this site - the things that helped us narrow down our location was what kind of wedding we wanted (beach) and price/distance for guests (not expensive, not more than 8 hrs from our main cities in Canada). Happy planning!
