Did you visit your destination before your wedding?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of having my DW at Club Med Sandpiper in Florida. My question is - how many of you have visited your destination of choice prior to your wedding or before even booking? We aren't sure if it is in our budget to take a trip down there before our wedding - but I feel like I am going in blind.


I would love to hear from anyone who visited first and those who didn't. Things I should know, etc etc.


Thank you!

I HAVE NOT visited my reception nor do I have the time or money to prior to the wedding, however, we are leaving August 12 & the wedding ins Aug 17, so my dad might plan a tasting (though it's still too late to change anything)




I have been to Hawaii (my general location) many times. & I have stayed at the hotel 2-3 times. I'm going by reviews & suggestions, pictures & my gut.



I think if you could go, even for a day, go. If there's a way to get overtime or pick an extra shift you should. I know I'm stressed about it as is & feeling blind is making things worse, however it's a DW, so even some of the bad  things I have thought of, that may happen, my other events & things going on will make up for it!


Make the best of the situation. Have little back ups.

We vacationed at our resort two years before we were engaged, when we left we knew that was the place we wanted to get married when the time was right - we will be getting married 11/17/13 at IBEROSTAR Rose Hall Suites in Montego Bay, Jamaica! Yah Mon!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
