My name is Keri & I live in the Bay Area in California, with my fiance Josh. I'm 24 & he's 26 & we've been together for over 4 years. We got engaged December 6th (our 4yr anniversary) & knew we wanted to do a destination wedding but had no idea where. I've spent hours online looking and am just overwhelmed with all the options but hey at least there are lots of great options to choose from! I was very excited to find this forum, it seems like a lot of friendly & helpful people providing great info! 


Not much is set in stone yet...we are thinking fall 2014 and somewhere tropical, but we really haven't narrowed down the location at all. We are thinking an all-inclusive for the amenities for our guests but that is not a must. My fiance only cares about beautiful clear water lol, but I'm of course concerned about a lot of other stuff. 

Anywho that's a bit about me and i'm looking forward to being a part of this great site!

    Hi Keri welcome to BDW I'm not fat from you, Lodi. Start with a country then narrow options from that point.

            Welcome Keri! It can definitely be overwhelming at first, but once you have the big things like a date and a location nailed down it becomes really fun! Good luck to you!!
