Hey everyone,

 

I just got engaged in Jamaica, Negril a couple of weeks ago.  I'm planning a wedding in 2015 but haven't really thought of anything beyond that.  I'm thinking there'll be about 50 of us at least so I want to make it as affordable as possible for my family and friends.  That probably narrows my search down to Jamaica, DR, Cuba, Bahamas and St. Lucia (at like a 3 star).  There's so much to read on here and from what I've read so far, this site is going to help me so much.  First thing I've learned is that I need a travel agent so that's at the top of my agenda. 

 

Any advice on anything right now would be helpful.

 

Thanks :)

Searching by resort reviews and then searching brides who booked at those resorts have really helped. Everyone on here is so nice and helpful! Happy planning  :)

Congrats and welcome to BDW! As everyone else has said, you will definitely find a ton of information and ideas on this site, and everyone is more than willing to share!

 

You don't say if you're in the US or canada, although I suspect if you're considering Cuba that it's canada. Americans still are not allowed to travel to Cuba from the US, although I've heard they can travel there as long as they arrive from a country other than the US. Having said that, depending on the province you might be in, there are any number of travel agents that you could get a recommendation from on this site, but a travel agent is definitely a must! A good one will make your life easier, and your guests as well!

 

As to where.... well that's much more of a personal choice, You need to think about what you want, where you've been and the type of wedding you're looking for. Each country that you've named offers something different and special. Absolutely reading the resort reviews will help. They're organized by country so you can be selective and read what you want to. that will go a long way to helping with a decision. The other, again, will be your travel agent! A good one again will help you with what each country/resort features in terms of what you want and it will be important to let them know what your "vision" is for your wedding, and let them help you with it!

 

Then work with this site, and you'll find pretty much everything else you need here! Past and present brides (and grooms) have given of themselves here so I'm sure you will find information on just about anything you can think of!!

 

 

Good luck and happy planning!!

The best place to start is truthfully here! You found it! Almost every wedding question, fear, idea and DIY project can be supported and answered here on the boards. I have only been planning for 2 months and have already found this forum invaluable!

Congratulations!!!

 

My travel agent has been my right arm as I have asked her about so many different resorts. She even set up my resort tours in October 2013 when I went to Jamaica on a girls trip. This isn't a must but since I was already there, I decided to do them. I still haven't decided on the final resort (wedding is in 2015) but it gave me a chance to see if they could give me the vision I was seeking.

 

Happy planning!
