    Hi everyone,


    I am newly engaged and FI and I are thinking DW in Mexico or Jamaica, sometime next winter.  We haven`t made any decisions yet on location (other than definitely all-inclusive) or a date.  We have done a bit of research ourselves but are looking for realistic advice, reviews and referrals to help sort things out as we don`t have any friends or family who have done a DW before.  That is actually one of the reasons a DW is attractive - it is something different than the traditional ceremony, dinner and reception which all of our friends have done. 


    Just from browsing I have seen the awesome ideas and useful information you ladies have and I look forward to putting everything to use!

      Welcome! I was so confused when I started planning our destination wedding.  We choose Jamaica and couldn't be happier with out decision!!  Good luck finding your dream destination and resort!

        Congratulations and welcome to the forums! I recommend the Mayan Riviera area mainly because of the white sand and blue waters that are here! They are absolutely stunning! Some might also say that you can't catch a beautiful sunset because we are on the wrong coast... but I disagree!!! :-)

        Let me know if you have questions about any of the resorts in the area!

          Welcome! I can't speak for Jamaica, but the Mayan Riviera is amazing! I've only been once and I loved it sooo much that once we got engaged, we KNEW where we wanted to have our wedding ;)
