    Hello, Everyone! I am very excited to be here. I got engaged less than two weeks ago and already trying to decide on location to celebrate our union. I just came back from Aruba last week and I loved it; however, I didn't not see even hotel I would get married in. So, since we are considering summer/fall, the choices of islands are very limited due to hurricanes. I researched Barbados and it looks very good to me and I am very interested to hear if there are any Barbados' brides.

    I am imagining a small/mid size all-inclusive hotel with beautiful grounds where we are going to have symbolic ceremony. The sunset cruse with cocktails and appetizers for a couple of hours. Reception into the night.

    Too much to do and to much plan but I will have my dream wedding

          Thanks for your warm welcome. I have read some of the threads here and they gave me a lot of good ideas. Right now I am wondering what should I pick first date or location? Should I ask my closest family and friends about the date before I decide? What were your criteria for the location?

              well the date and location really go together - i'd have a general timeframe in mind, then find your location and see what exact dates in that timeframe they have available. unless you have a date that you absolutley want (but doesn't sound like that's the case!), you could call a few places to see if they're available on that date.

              oh, welcome to the forum!

                I would like to have it over long weekend, so I guess Labor Day will be perfect. I will start calling hotels on Monday to see if they can give me estimate for accomodations. What is the average cost per couple for your wedding? We are planning on paying for accomodations for most of the guests. I am hoping for $ 400-500/couple for 2 nights.

                      Congratulations on your fresh engagement and welcome to the forum! So many destinations to pick from, it's just a matter of narrowing down what exactly you're looking for for your group and some factors that could play into location specifics. Good luck!
