    My boyfriend and I have been together almost 3 years. We are not yet engaged so there is no set wedding date. We have discussed getting married and this is something we both want. I am totally clueless about how to plan a wedding. What I know for sure is: 1. I want to have a simple ceremony with a small number of guests. 2. I like the idea of a destination wedding at a resort where most of the particulars are taken care of by the resort and the honeymoon is included. 3. My budget is quite limited. I truly want to eventually tie the knot. However, I have no desire to plan all the exhausting details (i.e. decorations, ceremony, choosing a minister, reception, etc.) Any feedback or suggestions would be truly appreciated. Thanks. :)

      What I have notices through the whole process reading things here and talking to others is that a destination can be as much or as little fuss as you want... a lot of resorts do a Free Package based on numbers of people and then allow you to add on things that are important, or you can be over the top some resorts do expensive packages that include everything! I think that the more you read, and research you will notice these things as well! Good Luck!!!

      Jolene is 100% right. You can make it as elaborate or as simple as you want, and either way it will be gorgeous. The first step is to figure out when, and then the where. Big picture "where" - Mexico, Jamaica, FL - where is your destination? Once you decide that you can narrow down the resorts.

       

      Reach out to Tammy and the BDW team for expert assistance in finding and booking your resorts. An experience travel agent can make this process sooooo much easier (and less stressful!) for you. You can contact Tammy

        Sandals has free weddingmoons if you book 7 days with them and Cruises are always a cheaper option. This site should give you plenty of ideas, Happy Hunting!!
