    Hi beautiful brides, brides-to-be & wives!

    I am newly engaged and the planning has already started because we are getting married in January.  We want a destination wedding in the Caribbean and the guest list is upwards of 300 people, we feel 100-150 will attend.


    As I research all the amazing islands and resorts I tend to get overwhelmed with how I am actually going to make a decision.


    What I do know:  My fiance and I are leaning towards the all-inclusive side.


    PROs:  It makes it easy for the guests and is a basic price for everything...especially since there will be a large crowd.


    CONs:  Not having options available as far a details. (is this true?)


    Question #1- Has anyone done a large wedding in Caribbean at a resort that is not all-inclusive?  What was your experience and did the costs seem to sky-rocket?


    I also know that I don't want to get married in the sand.  I would love a grass setting with the water the background.


    Questions #2-  Has anyone else had this setting?


    Question #3- Have you had the wedding of your dreams in the Caribbean? or are you planning it right now?:-)  Would love to know where.


    Thank you all for reading and best wishes!  Hope your planning is going great!


    <3 MissMissy

      MissMissy, I am currently planning my wedding for 150-175 guests in the Bahamas. It will be at the Wyndham Nassau. It is not all-inclusive but the location is great, the room rate is great, and the wedding team there is awesome! I filled out an inquiry online and received a response in less than 24 hours. I received hotel rates and packages and a phone conference with their wedding coordinator right away. They answer EVERY question you may have, and some you didn't wen know you have! I have pictures and lots of options. The biggest plus is that they book 1 wedding per day do you are NEVER Rushed!
      Beaches Turks & Caicos - 30 Rooms booked with 80 guests confirmed so far!

        I was a recent bride in Tobago in the Caribbean and I loved the ability to have control over all my details at a private villa and not be a product of some mass-produced commercialized process where I am just one in ten brides for the month. We had about 180 guests and it all went great!


        I am also a well-established caribbean based photographer and would love to provide a quote for our services if you ever need it! www.ilysiuminc.com


        Happy planning! Ily
