Dazed, Confused And Excited!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! This site was highly recommended by a friend who is planning her destination wedding and so far it's amazing. My fiancé and I have just begun the planning process and are finding it hard to even pick an island!! So far we have narrowed it done to Aruba, Bahamas, St. Lucia or Jamaica.

We are hoping to not have guests spend more than $1500-$1600 for a May 2015 wedding with a children friendly resort.

Any suggestions for places that others have liked or been to would be greatly appreciated!! Feeling a tad overwhelmed with all the amazing resorts out there and are finding it hard to find any inclusive packages (hotel + resort) for May, 2015.

Welcome to BDW! And congrats!!

 

This site is an amazing resource of information, tips and ideas. I would highly recommend that you do take the time to scout around a little and see what there is to offer!

 

Having said that, I was married in Jamaica and it is an island that just seems to spell "romance" if that's possible! lol I'm not sure where you're located, but for that budget amount I would highly recommend Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica, in beautiful Runaway Bay! We had a wonderful time there and I would recommend it still to anyone that asks!!

 

Check out the Resort Reviews on this site and see what other brides are saying about resorts. You can break it down by region which should be a help. As well feel free to contact Wright Travel on this site. They are destination wedding professionals and a fountain of information!

 

Good luck and happy planning!

Congrats and happy planning! My fiance and i were also interested in many of the locations you mentioned but found the same problem with keeping it affordable for all guest. Just take your time and consider all options and other locations as well. It will come to you as you rule out what it is that you do not want. 

 

Good luck!

Hey! I just joined the site and I'm pretty much in the same shoes as you.  I'm thinking May 2015 for about $1500/person.  I'm really excited I found this site....so much to read though!!!

 

Happy planning :)

Hi and congratulations! I am also doing a May 2015 wedding. I knew right away that I wanted to go to Jamaica though, so didn't have that problem! We decided on the Riu Tropical Palace in Negril. It will be right around $1600 per person for a 7 night all inclusive stay. Some people are going for less days and so they will only be around $1200 pp. They do allow kids there, but it is not necessarily "family" centered. The sister resort right down the beach is Riu Club Negril and they have free kids under 5. However, if you stay at the Tropical Palace like we are, we also have access to the other resort for all its restaurants and amenities.

    • Hello I am planning to get married at Jade Mountain in 2020 any new updates on weddings there or other St Lucia hotels and vendors appreciated 
    • Thanks for your good list.  I also love Marry Me and I'm Yours. 
    • I haven’t seen any recent info on wedding at the Now Amber PV. Has anyone had their wedding there recently? Any feedback etc. My daughter booked her wedding for 5/15/20 so any info would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Good list! I bet it got folks moving!
    • Hey fellow wedding planners. When me and my wife planned our wedding I started making playlists both for the reception and for the dance floor.  I wanted it to be more towards indie and alternative music and since I started sharing the playlists on Facebook and other social media I got so much appreciation I wanted to make them available to others planning their wedding. For the reception Will you marry me? Let's play this at our wedding - INDIE / FOLK / ALTERNATIVE For the dance floor I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor - Indie Party Anthems I also have a few other playlists that might be of interest for playing at a wedding It's all about JAZZ Fabulous Fingerpicking Folk (Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkle, Bright Eyes, Iron & Wine, Beatles etc) 88 Keys Of Magic - Contemporary Piano - Jazz / Neo Classical and More Fingers, Wood, Nylon and Steel - Contemporary Acoustic Guitar Instrumental Chill Out Gems Hope it can be of help or maybe just inspiration for your own wedding playlist! Let me know what you think!   Flag  Quote  Agree  Like
