    Hi everyone! I recently found this site and I can see it's going to be very helpful! I just got engaged and I've spent a lot of time looking at individual places in Mex/Hawaii/Carib, but it's so overwhelming. Any tips on how to narrow down a place that doesn't break the bank for guests yet would put on a totally wonderful and professionally planned wedding/reception/extra shenanigans? I'm really focused on it being not too expensive so I can get as many people to come as possible.

     

    Thank you!

      Hi there - welcome to BDW!

       

      You can definitely find a wide range of prices for the resort, and then the wedding add ons can be as much or as little as you want (and still be beautiful and elegant). 

       

      I would suggest working with a travel agent who specializes in destination weddings. They will be able to work with you to find the perfect resort for you and your guests. Wright Travel Agency can help you narrow down the options - there's a link in my signature if you'd like to learn more about them. Good luck and happy planning!!

            The cheapest place we have ever been besides Mexico has been the Bahamas .. However, I do not know how much it would be for a wedding. Finding a place is the hardest part! :D

            Finding a cost friendly spot can be tricky. A couple of things to think about: 1) where are you flying from? And where are most of your guests flying from? This often has a large impact on locations you may choose. If you live on the east coast, flying to Cancun, Mexico or Dominican Republic may be good options. Live on the west coast? Maybe Cabo, Mexico, or Vegas? Try a couple of online travel sites to just get an idea of cost. Then find a good travel agent who you can depend on to help you narrow down the search for a specific resort.

            2) another thing to consider is when are you planning on getting married? Time of year, and the high/low travel season prices can affect your prices. If you have to travel during March break, Easter or Christmas holidays, it will be more expensive than in the low travel season.

             

            Sometimes narrowing down your window, for when you want to travel will help you plan for where you will go! Good luck.
