    Hello, I am new to the forum and don't know where to start.  A month ago we had our heart set on Our Lucaya in the Bahamas after personally viewing the property and loving it. But after waiting months for prices, we finally realized that there might be better out there so we are starting from scratch! We are so overwhelmed with all the info available and was hoping with info from other brides like me, I could make an informed decision. If anyone is currently putting together a 2012 wedding and have found a great package deal or any info that might help me please feel free to add, thanks so much!!

        Welcome to the forum! I know exactly how you feel. I started with NO idea whatsoever of where we would book our wedding. My fiancee and I made a list of absolute must-haves for our location, set a budget for both the wedding and what we thought our VIP guests could afford. We then took that list to a travel agent and polled a few friends who'd travelled the Carribean more than once. That got us down to list of 8 resorts. It was a glowing review on Tripadvisor from another couple that helped us make our final decision. In the end you'll go with your gut. Good luck!

        We also started with no idea when we first looking into destination weddings.  We did research on tons of locations and resorts.  From there we were able to narrow down our search by making a list of what was and wasnt important to us.  From there we had a list of a few resorts we were considering so we went to a travel agent to help us narrow it down further. Good luck with your search!

          Hi Jules! I am in the same boat! I am deciding between Riviera Maya vs Dominican Republic.  (Leaning toward Mexico). So many resorts to choose form! Hopefully I'll have a manageable list of locations pretty soon!

                well, what I did was first narrow our search to an area, then searched all their available wedding packages. After that I googled the review for each resort and then also did a search on travel website to get a idea on pricing.

                 

                From there, I narrowed it down to 3 resort. Then I went ahead and got a few group quotes from companies such as Westjet, Aircanada and Itravel. Base on the quoted price, we asked a few friends on their opinion and finally found our resort and TA.

                 

                We went with Westjet, they offered us the best price and they have been quite accommodating. If you have any question, just PM me.
