Hey everyone!

My name is stephany and I'm new to the site :) i just decided to have a destination wedding after 5months of stressing trying to plan a traditional wedding that would have broke the bank and not allowed us to go on a honeymoon. So I haven't decided on a I just contacted a Travel Agent yesterday waiting on some quotes. I'm looking for some place in Mexico or jamaica and I'm totally open to any suggestions. My budget is 4k and its probably going to be me my fiancee, our baby girl, and our parents as of right now with everyone else waiting for some prices to decide whether or not they are going. The weeding will be either April 27th or 28th base on availability. Any suggestions on how to make this simple for me and cheap for everyone else . Thanks in advance :)

Welcome!

 

What city are you coming from? It will be way cheaper in Mexico rather than Jamaica. While the wedding package may cost about the same (ceremony reception etc), the actual cost of the trip (air, hotel, etc) will be cheaper in Mexico for about the same quality.

 

Good choice on destination wedding!

Hi Stephany-

 

Welcome to the boards and congratulations! You will find a lot of advice here.

 

I know you mention April as your month - however, you will lower your price potentially substantially by having your wedding on an off-peak season. April is still a very popular month for vacations - so you might want to see what your options are. 

 

Even if you've contacted a travel agent - I recommend doing some basic searches yourself on sites like expedia or kayak just to see what you come up with. I have heard brides on here obtain better deals sometimes by just booking on common sites. 

 

Good luck!

Hi Stephany, Congrats on your upcoming nuptials. I say you head over to Jamaica. The food is great, the weather is beautiful, and the people are awesome! Yes I'm biased because I'm Jamaican ;)
