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!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
