Iâ€™m new to this website, and hopeful that someone can guide me in the right direction. My heart is set on a destination wedding but I canâ€™t decide on a location!! I started off planning for Oahu, HI, but since I now live in the mid west (and my family is on the east coast), travel prices were way too much! I was considering North Carolina (the Outer Banks) because most of my DC family would opt to take the road trip, but my fianc© / his family would need to fly in, and the closest airport is Norfolk, VAâ€¦ Too much of a hassle trying to get people to/from the hotelâ€¦. Next up, Folly Beach, SC, both families will most likely fly in, but Iâ€™m thinking if thatâ€™s the case I may as well go for the gusto and choose Florida! I heard that most Florida destinations were a bit easier to plan offered better deals for destination weddingsâ€¦ (Is that true?).
With that being saidâ€¦ Can anyone suggest a nice, classy hotel/resort to host a beach wedding and small cocktail reception for a good (meaning not too outrageous) price. Family friendly, easy to travel to, experienced with destinations weddings and able to accommodate a crazy bride like myself, LOL!!
By the way, my destination wedding is also my honeymoon, if that makes a difference. I need a place to say I Do and also vacation at the same timeâ€¦.
Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated!!!!
