New DW Bride!

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies! My name is Halsey :)

 

My fiancee and I have been engaged since December, and up until now have been planning a traditional wedding. However, after looking at finances it just makes more sense for us to have a DW. I have no family or friends, so we would be paying completely for his family to attend, and I would much rather have a more intimate ceremony. We will not have any one at our wedding with us, we decided we just want it to be us. Plus, FI has never been out of the country, let alone Pacific Northwest, so I'm excited to take him somewhere tropical!

 

I'd like some ideas for all-inclusive resorts, preferably in Jamaica. I know about Sandals, but I also have a feeling there are cheaper resorts out there. Any suggestions would great! Also, I don't know what time of year we should go??

 

Thank you all!

Welcome!

 

Congrats on your engagement in December, I was also engaged in December!  And congrats on deciding on a destionation wedding!!


We chose Jamaica because it is a truly beautiful country!!  We are getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe in Runaway Bay, Jamaica.  We ultimately chose this resort for a few reasons: They offer a variety of wedding packages, even a free one, they offer lots of variety of restraunts, and the location of the resort is pretty good compared to the air port.  Also, it was the cheapest out of any resort, even though it is 5star.

 

We chose to get married in early January.  We chose this because its cheaper then February, March and April.  My parents own a RV business so their summer months are busiest so we knew we would have to get married in a winter month.  I graduate in December from University so thought January would be a great time!  Good luck with your decisions!

Congrats on your engagement I got engaged in December also. :)  Picking your resort can be difficult, but you've come to the right place.  Read a lot of the reviews and ask to look at pictures because paradise is how you define it.  Congrats again and happy planning

Sandals is waaaay overpriced. You have to love that they have ongoing promotions claiming to be 65% off when it's still twice what you'd pay to go to a comparable resort. We're going to the Iberostar Rose Hall which is right near the airport in Montego Bag, it's in the mid-price-range. The Gran Bahia and the Riu are both your best bang for your buck resorts when it comes to their wedding packages. Especially if it's just going to be the two of you, it make sense to go for a place where your wedding can be free.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
