    Hi,   I am new to this forum.  I am getting married in June at Couples Swept Away, just my fiance and me!   Right now my biggest questions have to do with which wedding ceremony to book at Couples.  We are leaning towards the included one, since it is just the two of us.  Any benefits to booking one of the other ones?   We are also working on photography.  I am strongly leaning towards Diana Campbell.  After speaking with her on the phone, I definitely felt at ease.  I am trying to decide between the 1 day or 2 day package.  My fiance does not love the idea of a second day of photos because he doesn't want it to get in the way of his vacation, but Diana made it sound like fun.  I know I have read on here and other places about a second day at the cliffs in Negril or Mayfield Falls.  Can anyone who has taken pictures with Diana give me some information about how that went for them?   Also, we are booked in an Atrium Suite at Couples.  I know I have read about the second floor being nice with vaulted ceilings, but then also read that means the bathroom does not have a full wall?  Can someone please explain this further?     And then there is the issue of clothes.  I have no idea about dresses or any of that.  My fiance wants to wear khakis and a white linen shirt.  I want something lightweight, fun casual.   Oh, too many details!   I look forward to some input and hope I can be of help to others as well!   Jen

    Hello Jen and welcome! Congrats on deciding on a destination wedding for just you and your fiance! That sounds so romantic!! I'm not a Couples bride so I can't help you weigh the pros and cons of packages, but if it's just you two I'd venture to guess that the included/free package would be great for what you want. If you want some extras that aren't included that might change things, but if you're looking for something more simple that might be the way to go!

     

    As for the dress, have you looked through the wedding dress thread? http://www.bestdesti...60#post_1868587 SO MANY beautiful dresses to look at/get inspiration from. I'd start there, but it also helps to try some on and get an idea of what you think looks best on your body.

     

    Good luck!!
