Hello fellow brides!
My name is Meghan and my fiance Michael and I got engaged June 2011 after 4 years of dating. We are planning our wedding for 2013 and just 100% decided yesterday we are doing a destination wedding. I have always dreamed about a destination wedding but was trying to find a venue close to home to accommodate our guest list. Unfortunately the whole planning process, especially the cost of a home wedding was causing too much stress and anxiety. I finally got the "go with what your heart tells you" speech from my mum last night which was the green light to go with destination! I'm feeling so much better and excited but a little apprehensive that I have to start from scratch for planning again! haha.
A few questions I'd love feedback/opinions on!
We're thinking of trying for end of August to October for a wedding, we're looking at Jamaica, Dominican Republic or St. Lucia. Anyone know of a good website to check what the weather is like during those months in those destinations as I know hurricane season starts around August to November!
Does anyone have experience attending a wedding or having their wedding at any of the above destinations? Any feedback on what resort and how the wedding was would be appreciated!
Did you or are you planning the wedding with the help of a travel agent or consolidator or doing it on your own? Someone I know who did it on their own said they did it because doing it through a professional was more expensive? Does anyone find that?
