my name is nikki and my fiance is joe and we got engaged a little less then a month ago. we always knew we wanted a destination wedding and now its time to figure out how to do that.
etiquette and how-to are the big issues. we are pretty set on bahamas because of the length of the flight being nice and short from nj. (future mother in law is scared to fly) we know there are some things we definitly want to do and have so it shouldnt be too hard... i think.
how do we invite people... we know we are going to have some kind of informal bbq or dinner after the destination wedding because of all the no's we expect for travel.so do we send an invitation that has the destination info and the home party all in one?
do we ask people to come the week before the wedding and then leave after the wedding while we stay an extra week for our honeymoon? we would love everyone to arrive together, have a welcome dinner,spend the week together, then treat everyone to a catamaran cruise one day of the trip as well as a rehersal type dinner the night before the wedding.
those are 2 of the main things we cannot figure out so far.
i guess we just pick a place, call them and ask them to arrange everything we want and need?
thanks...first of many... hope you guys can help!
