          I think it more depends on what you actually do for the wedding!! You could do all of the extras and still make it cost efficient!! My parents are putting in a HUGE chunk for our wedding so we lucked out!! But you can wheel and deal the resorts down there!! Say you paid for your room - had the "free" wedding on the beach!! Which includes ceremony & such and instead of having a "private reception" which I wouldn't be having if it were solely up to me my FI wants one.. you could have dinner in one of the  restaurants because most of the resorts are all-inclusive!! See if they can schedule a place where you can have cake cutting and a first dance!! A lot of the resorts have things going on at night and sometimes have what they call block parties!! Ask the coordinator at the resort to co-inside your day and time with a block party so that after the ceremony and dinner you can all go and party!!!!

              Well it was an easy choice for me... First I looked everywhere in the states for an all-inclusive resort. I mean EVERYWHERE!! Let me be the first to tell you that they don't exist!! So then I moved on to the islands!! The Beaches Resort in Negril is the most child friendly resort I could find!!! Although I don't have children, children are a HUGE part of my family!! I have three nieces and one nephew and many many children that are nephews and close close family friends!! This resort has a water park, lazy river, the beach, an x-box arcade, sesame street outings throughout the day!! It was just a perfect match for what I was looking for.

               

              I really wanted an all-inclusive so that I didn't have to have my guests worrying about money on their vacation and my older nieces (12 & 16) Can hang out around the resort and not really have to worry about carrying around money if they are hungry!!!

               

              What I would do if make a list of what is MOST important to you about the resort...

               

              I.E.

              1) On The Beach

              2) Allows Children or No Children Allowed

              3) All-Inclusive or Self-Pay

               

              Then type those into a google search and see what pops up!!

               

              If you are not looking for an all-inclusive resort Bermuda is BEAUTIFUL!! Just not really any all-inclusive!!! That is where me and my future hubbie are going on our "short" honeymoon!!

                Thank you!!!

                I have been searching the internet for a website that sells things in bulk with bulk prices but where "bulk" means more like 40 rather than 500 +, I found this website and wanted to share it with all of you!!

                  Hey Gin Booties!

                   

                  check out the Karisma resorts!  You can get a room block and get your room free, and they have pretty good wedding packages.  Where they get you is the extras like colored sheers and flowers.  It all depends on how you want to do it!
