HELP! How do I choose the resort?!

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am new to the planning of the destination wedding. I've always known I've wanted a destination wedding on a beach. I have recently been trying to narrow down locations. I decided first on Florida or South Carolina, then decided I would rather go farther south. I then turned towards the US Virgin Islands (mainly so my guests would not HAVE to have a passport). I now am leaning towards having our wedding in Jamaica. I then started looking through different resorts and their package deals. I thought at first I would love to go through Sandals for the wedding and honeymoon, then of course read a few bad reviews. I originally was thinking Negril, due to all reviews saying they have the best beaches. However, I didn't know that it was an hour and a half from the airport. From previous vacation experiences, I hate a long drive to get to your destination after all the plane traveling, so I'm thinking I would make it better on myself, as well as all of the guests and have it closer to the airport. Montego bay is the only airports correct? I feel like I've been researching for hours and hours and hours already, and keep changing my mind. I would GREATLY appreciate anyones   suggestions on how to decide on the destination and resort. I am hoping to keep the costs down for my guests, and I also do not want to spend TONS of money for the wedding due to we will also be having a reception when we return home. This is Stressful already! Your opinions and help are GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks in advance! smile36.gif

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
