    Hi everyone! I just got engaged this past weekend and have already found this site so helpful! I've always dreamed of a destination wedding somewhere tropical, but we have no idea where that will be yet - either Mexico or the Caribbean. We also don't have a firm budget yet or have any idea of what it'll take to make our dream a reality. My fiance's family is big (although he's not close to all of them), so the biggest number of people we'd invite would be around 150. But we could chop  that down too, and probably will have to once we find out what things will cost!


    There are a couple Grand Cayman venues that I really love, but I hear that Mexico is a lot cheaper than the islands in general. I've been to the Riviera Maya area before and loved it, so I could see that as a locale too. Hopefully we will have a better idea of budget and guest count this weekend after talking with our parents, and then we can start narrowing things down. We are also planning a venue scouting trip probably in June once we decide on a location.


    Anyway, that's my intro! Any tips or ideas greatly appreciated!
