It does seem that way. I think their wedding packages seem pretty pricey though, and they do not have my colors in one of their packages, so not sure how that would work... Humph! I am so overwhelmed with this decision. I just want the place to be nice, have fun and get married. I thought destination weddings were supposed to be stress free?!?! :) 

I'm starting to feel it too lol and if I'm feeling stressed now I could only imagine getting married home lol

        Ok I'm trying to save as much money possible... Is it necessary to send out save the dates for a destination wedding? I'm getting married may 2015 I was going to send out save the dates in may 2014 followed by a invitation in the fall of 2014 I was just thinking maybe I could send the invitations out may 2014 and no save the dates? Has any brides done this? I just know that half the people that get the save the dates won't come so would I be safe with just giving the invitations out a year in advance or is the save the dates necessary? Thanks everyone

        I just sent my STD this month for our April wedding. I totally understand about trying to save money. I actually found a great deal on vistaprint for the STD. I also had a Groupon which helped as well. It seems like they have Groupons every so often! But....I think you can do whatever works best for you! :D

          save the date are not necessarily need it, but if you are looking to save a ton of money what I recommend is what I did. I sent Save the Date out to those that I know I may not be able to make it so that they would still have some momento of the game itself. Save the Date can be actuallybe done very

            save the date are not necessarily need it. But if you are looking to save some money I recommend doing what I did. I set out a ton of save the date, mostly to those that I know will not be able see you at 10. You can do save the date very inexpensive, there are multiple Groupon that come out and save a ton of money, I use Shutterfly and they have great deals. If you buy any dresses weather in your dress or bridesmaid dressesfrom David's Bridal, David's Bridal will give you a $20 Shutterfly gift card and trust me that helps out a lot. With my $20 off from David's Bridal I got 50 save the date for like $5. I get a total about one hundred and twenty save the date, using coupons that I get from Shutterfly from ordering as well as gift card from Davids Bridal. Then I was able to only need to buy invitationsfor those that I know will be attending or those that I know I really would attend if they were able to but not due to health, Agwage, etcetera. It allows me to not have to spend quite as much on invitations which are fairly expensive
