This site is pretty cool, but I feel like TMI. We can't decide where to have out DW. It's down to 5 places: Bahamas, Jamaica, Las Vegas, Walt Disney World or Myrtle Beach. Some of the things I've read here are scary. Any one want to comment or recommend? I'm all ears. We have a small group - about 20. We've both done this before so it's going around again, and we're older, not young thirty-somethings. I want a little bit classy, a little bit elegant because of my age, but I still want our group to have fun. Help??

    Based on what you have said I would recommend narrowing it down to the Bahamas, Jamaica, or Las Vegas.  Next I would ask are you thinking beach fun or city/nightlife fun to either rule out or select Las Vegas.  If you chose beach fun, then one thing that could help sway you between the Bahamas and Jamaica could be flight prices if you are trying to keep the budget in check for your guests.

      Definitely agree that with your specifications, Bahamas, Jamaica and Las Vegas should be your choices.  I personally think the Bahamas or Jamaica would give you a better experience in terms of class and elegance.

      thanks for the comments so far.... Bahamas is where I'm leaning but we have 2 of our children that are on tight budgets thus thinking within the U.S.  I've checked on the RIU but I've also heard a few scary things about having a wedding there. yes - budget is definitely a consideration since our children will also be bringing our grandchildren. just TOO many things to consider and also to try and consider everyone else. I'm still all ears if anyone else wants to suggest, comment or recommend

          we love Mexico and have gone there every year for about the last 6 years, but it's too much work to have everything translated and do the necessary documentation. plus we're both divorced and are just mssing the one year wait time required. at my age, believe me, for the purposes of the marriage licence I could very easily guarantee I'm not pregnant!!!! but it's just too much headache. we're trying to stay with a place where all our documents in English are ok to use and also where there is no wait time, or blood tests. but thank you for the recommendation! if anything changes, we could definitely take another look at Mexico. at this time, we aren't considering it.

           

          at this point I think it will be Bahamas or Jamaica, now to just nail down where..... thanks for the vote on Rose Hall. I like the RIUs as well. I need to investigate this site some more and see if I can drum up the recs, or the negatives. thanks all for the input. you can keep it coming. I'm always open to suggestions, comments or recommendations.
