Late 2015/early 2016 - Keener!

Recommended Posts

Just introducing myself!  Figured it was about time considering all the creeping, researching, and more creeping I've been doing!

 

My other half of more than 8 years and I recently decided to finally make it official.  We are aiming for late 2015 early 2016.  It's a little ways off, but we need time to save and so do most of our guests.  We have son who will be almost 4 at that time, and it looks like we will have 10-15 young kids attending as well.  It is going to be awesome.  And, we will probably have a large group.  Affordability is important, as is a big enough resort with enough to do that we don't all have to hang out together the entire time (...sorry if that sounds harsh...)  Oh, and I want a sunrise ceremony, or at least a morning ceremony... but just a symbolic ceremony, as we are bringing someone to help us through our vows.  

 

Hmm, any advice on ANY of that?  I am overwhelmed with step one: selecting a location.  I am working with a TA who knows me very well, so I know I have a lot of help...but she can't do much until I narrow down a few locations. 

 

EXCITED!  But, overwhelmed!  ALREADY!

 

Thanks, in advance, for all the help I'm sure you will give over the next few years. :)  You've ALREADY been very helpful!

Congrats! And welcome to the site! You've already found out how helpful everyone is here, with information, tips and ideas. Definitely half your battle is coming up with a location, and there are some awesome, beautiful places to plan a destination wedding! And I think the fact that you have a TA will help you make your decision. It might help if you read the resort reviews too to see what other brides have had to say about where they got married. You absolutely have time on your side to find what you want. My personal choice would be Jamaica just because it's so easy to actually get married there. One of the reasons we chose not to get married in Mexico is all the reasons that you'll see here. So many brides do the legal stuff at home first, but it was something that I didn't want to do. It's a lot of work to get legally married in Mexico, no doubt about it. Jamaica is completely different. We were both divorced and even with that there wasn't any hassle at all. I'm super glad we did it that way, and Jamaica has some fabulous, beautiful resorts that will accommodate your group size and the fact that you have little ones that will be part of it!

 

Have some fun with it, and enjoy! Happy planning!

Welcome! Feb 2016 here... And Mayan Riviera for us! Originally thought we would do Jamaica, but after looking into it more, the Mayan was perfect for us- and closer for most of our guests to travel.

 

 

Looking forward to planning alongside you!
