    Hello Everyone at BDW!

     

    My Fiance and I were just engaged on New Years Eve.  I am soo excited, so I am starting the wedding planning early.. We are looking at having a Destination Wedding next summer (2013). I signed up for DestinationWeddings.com but they haven't been near as helpful as I thought they would be.  We are wanting to go somewhere like Jamaica, Bahamas, etc.. I've never been outside of the US, so I don't know what to expect nor what I am even looking at. So far, I Love the Beaches resorts in Turks and Caicos and Negril because of their all inclusive factor and their great amenities. But they seem a bit pricey and we hate to ask our guests to spend that much.(thoughts?)   Now, we have both fallen in LOVE with Atlantis and then the Cloisters at O&O for the ceremony. After seeing Candace and TJ's video on the Atlantis site I have been in awe! (<--any info on these sites are greatly appreciated. )

     

     I am soo thankful to have stumbled upon this website, any suggestions of any great family friendly, all inclusive resorts are greatly appreciated.

            Congrats and welcome to the forum!

             

            I had originally hired DW.com also, but found them so lacking in knowledge or helpfulness that I requested a refund.  I hope they are better to you!

             

            We got married at Beaches Boscobel (Ocho Rios) and had no complaints.  At least none that I can remember almost 4 years later!  So I think the Beaches resorts are a great option.  If money is an issue, I believe that the Riu resorts are very comparable in what they offer, but are more reasonably priced.  At least they were when I got married.

             

            If you have not done so, you may want to:
             
            • complete your profile (upload a photo, add profile details, etc.)
            • visit the Newbies forum and introduce yourself
            • find the forum for your wedding destination and create a subscription to threads/members/vendors that you are interested in
