HELP!! NEW AND DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START

Recommended Posts

I am in the exact same boat! I am totally overwhelmed. Just two days ago I started doubting if I made the right decision to want a DW. More than anything, I dont want to be a financial burden on our friends and family. 

We are looking at Feb 2013 and I am hoping it all works out. We decided on Mexico because it seems the most affordable, but after reading some replies on here I am wondering if we should have looked into Jamaica.  

Are Jamaica and Mexico the same ball park price wise? My requirements are simply; a beautiful beach and my family and close friends be there. SO we are pretty flexible with location. 

If anyone has any recommendations, I would really appreciate it. I am on this site for hours at a time. FH has actually made me turn off the computer bc he sees my head spinning from all the info I am taking in!!

One thing that helped us decide on a location was when we realized that you can make almost any place work for your budget if you are willing to make compromises. If you have your heart set on a more exotic location that costs alot to fly to then you might have to settle for only a 3 day visit. If you want a longer trip then you might have to sacrifice going the ever popular all-inclusive route and rent a large cottage or bungalow with a group of people and make your own food. For us great food and service was most important so we chose a resort chain that is known for both and picked from among their locations. Make a list of your "must haves" and stick to them, you'll find the right place.

Newbie here!

 

We are looking into an August wedding 2012. We can't seem to decide if Punta Cana or Riviera Maya will be the one. What has been experience in either location? Weather in August?

August/September is hurricane season in cancun. I vacationed there in august a few years back and it was windy and down pouring. The beaches were closed due to huge swells. I will say, we still had an absolutely amazing time but if ur considering your wedding there. Keep tha in mind. Happy planning

Ya ditto for Dominican, the brutal heat of the summer is breaking around then which is nice but it rains approx. 75% of the time and HARD. You'd have better luck bumping it up a month to July (it's really hot but not as much rain) or wait til October.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
