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.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/85/show-us-your-wedding-dress/6660#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!!

    • This coming November, I will be marrying the woman I don't truly deserve but I was so blessed that God gave me her. Half of my life, I have been a douchebag. I have played with different women’s hearts. I thought I would never be able to meet someone who will love me wholeheartedly, until this woman came. I don’t deserve to be cared and loved by such an angel. No matter how bastard I was, she still accepted me for who I am. Loving me sincerely is what she has done since the first day. Because of that, I know deep within that she deserves someone better, but she chose to stay and love me. And I was beyond grateful for that. 
    • Have you decided? We just booked a wedding and stay at Azul Sensatori Negril for December 2019!
    • Nicole, did you decide which resort yet?  We are guessing anywhere from 25-40 people.  Shamil! Welcome and congrats!  We booked the twilight ceremony as well. How many people will you have? Who is your planner?  We still havent spoken to ours but finally locked down a date on the 29th of this month. Dying over here.  What locations have you looked at so far?  
    • Yeah, Put it all into the cake! Make it tasty   So u will be original 100%))) What are u waiting from those weddings? U think its the best idea?:)  I'm using https://escortinbudapest.info for weddings every day
    • You can always contract a providing food organization if your Marriage Halls in Hyderabad remove you from the conventional corridor in addition to out into the obscure.   On the off chance that you have adequate spending plan, you can look at a major setting/lodging that offers roughly everything that you require for your gathering, such as wedding cake, blooms, birds, excitement, drinks, stylistic layouts, and so on.
