Hello All! My name is Jenna! I just recently got engaged. We have known for some time that we would like to have a destination wedding. I started some subtle research before we officially became engaged, but the farthest I got was to make the decision on a Jamaica DW...(I HOPE! :wacko:) I am currently waiting on a travel agent to get back with me with some advice on resorts! Is this the best place to start? Whats the next best step after picking the resort, booking your date? I feel like I have sooo many questions, that hopefully the TA will be able to help me with! I went ahead and contacted Wright travel agency thru this website instead of a local agent, mainly because I have read TONS and TONS and TONS of good reviews on here about them and how great they are at planning destination weddings! If anyone has any tips, insights, or any type of info that might be pertinent to me, I would GREATLY appreciate your feedback! Congrats to all other new brides-to-be!!! Happy planning!

    Hi Jenna,

     

    Definitely joining this website was the best thing you could have done! Also finding a good travel agent is key as well! I have heard lots of good things about Wright Travel so I am sure you are in good hands. Picking a location is great! Makes it easier to narrow down your resorts. First thing I did was decide on a country (we chose Cuba) and then decided what factors were important for us in a resort (ie. kid friendly or adults only, proximity to the airport, major cities, ceremony venues, etc), from there we narrowed our choices down to the resorts that offered everything we were looking for. Price was our biggest factor as we had friends and family we really wanted to be able to attend. So once we found a few places that we liked, we picked a week that worked for us and received quotes on the resorts. We ended up going with the cheapest resort, but I think it was by fluke that we got such a good deal on the resort, because now the price of the resort is over $500 more for the same week then when we booked in April!

     

    Also there are TONS of diy ideas on this forum... I never thought I'd be able to diy anything let alone invitations and centrepieces, but with the great templates and ideas I found on here I was able to save quite a few $$. And don't let things stress you out, the nice thing about having a destination wedding is that people who can and want to will come, you will have beautiful venues and scenery, so you won't need much decor, just enjoy the process and allow lots of time to plan, because we all know they work on island time in the caribbean!
