    Hi there!

     

    I'm a newbie here and am so excited to have a destination wedding!

     

    We originally decided on the Cloisters in Nassau, Bahamas. But a big factor for us was that we didn't want to stay in a resort with tourists, we want to rent a large villa or rent out a small boutique hotel. This was impossible to find in Nassau so we're back to location hunting!

     

    We're considering using the Haiku Mill in Maui but it's also quite pricey. Any suggestions welcome ;)

     

    Excited to 'virtually' meet you all!

          Hi SapphireBride,

           

          We think there are a couple of pretty special boutique hotels (non-AI) on the Riviera Maya in Mexico that are worth checking out. I would look at

            Thanks for the responses! The Mexico hotels look nice, unfortunately we're heading to Riviera Maya for two weddings this year so hoping to go somewhere different :P

                  My best friend and her hubby swear by this place: http://www.skybeachclub.com/ in Eleuthera, Bahamas

                   

                  They have gone there every year for the past few years, and got married there in August.

                      Hi Sapphire Bride,

                       

                      Before choosing my non-resort wedding destination in Riviera Maya (Hacienda del Mar, an oceanfront villa in Puerto Aventuras), I had mentally planned a wedding at the Rockhouse Hotel in the cliffs of Negril in Jamaica. It's quite a small boutique hotel and has a few normal rooms that are reasonably priced and private cabanas that are more luxurious with matching higher price tags. I've seen lovely wedding pics from there. Here's one wedding: http://www.stylemepr...urray-weddings.

                       

                      Happy planning!
