My name is Paula and I am newly engaged. My fiance (I just typed boyfriend and then remembered thats not quite the right term anymore!) I am from New Zealand originally and Alex is from St Louis, Missouri. We wanted to get married somewhere in the middle as a compromise for our families and I have always wanted to go to Mexico!
I would so love any help/advice/guidance from you all. I have quickly skimmed through the posts on here and everyone is just so helpful with great tips. Its also especially important as we won't be able to get to the venue or to Mexico until the week before we marry, so recommendations are crucial for us.
We would like between 60-70 guests and we are thinking about a beach front ceremony. We would then like to have the reception and party afterwards in a villa, unless anyone has recommendations for other ideas!! We are trying to keep costs down by bringing in our own caterers and buying our own booze, and I think we thought that hiring a villa would allow us to do this. However, I have seen some amazing venues and just want to get some ideas from you all really!
Thanks so much and I hope you can help me out, I can't say enough how much I would appreciate it!
