    Hey Brides -


    After 8 months of writing...I’m getting closer to launching my book on planning a destination wedding and am seeking feedback from 10 brides who are just getting started with planning their wedding.


    I know there’s a lot of fear about planning from a distance and trying to negotiate in another language. I was in your shoes not too long ago…


    I went through this process when I was planning my wedding abroad but it was easier because I grew up in Latin America, learned the language and understand the business culture. So I was able to negotiate great rates and plan a fun and affordable wedding getaway in the tropics. I love destination weddings because you’re able to have a wedding that’s “over the top” for a fraction of the price it costs here in the U.S.


    In exchange for taking the time to read my book and providing me with some general feedback (including a testimonial if you like it!), I’m willing to help you for free with the most important stages of destination wedding planning such as deciding on the destination, the budget, the guest list, the date and negotiating a deal with your venue.


    Let me know if you’re interested in receiving a free preview copy of my destination wedding planning book and optionally, if you want some free help in exchange!


    Please send me a private e-mail at Carolina[at]FlyToMyWedding.com no later than 9/15/10.


    Also, I’m trying to compile a list of fears that brides have about planning a destination wedding. Please reply below and let me know what your #1 fear is about planning a destination wedding? Thank you so much :)

        My biggest fear is that my dearest friends and family members can't make it for whatever reason.

          I hear you. I was afraid too. Do not worry. At the end everything will workout. There are things we cannot control such as sickness or a personal problem. Be positive and do not think about those events. One of the things you need to make sure is that they have the budget for the trip. If they do not have the budget you can find ways to help them out such as using miles to pay at least for their airplane ticket or finding inexpensive hotels for them to stay. 


          In my case, I flew the nanny because I wanted to have my nieces with me and give peace of mind to my sisters, so they could party with me until the sunrise ;-)

            I have 2 big fears for my wedding:

            1) weather - part of the reason I am choosing a destination wedding is for the gorgeous venues (I will be getting married at a seaside gazebo and have the reception on the beach) so I would be heartbroken if I ended up inside due to weather

            2) that in this economy I will lose my job between now and the wedding and I will have to do without a lot of the extras that I will want to make my day special (my company has been doing layoffs for the past 2 years, so this is a reality for me)
