Is anyone from Philadelphia or the surrounding suburbs having a destination wedding? We always have something wedding related going on in the area. Please share any info that you think may help another person out. Dates for shows, items to sell or trade, or just advice, etc...

 

Congrats to all and best of luck!

Hi! I am living in the Philly suburbs and I am planning a destination wedding for October 2015.  I am planning to have my wedding in Jamaica. 

 

I recently went to a bridal show.....there was some good ideas: t-shirts, invitations etc.  Being a destination wedding bride, most ideas at the bridal shows didn't really help me.  If you are having an at home reception, then it is really helpful as far as caterers and other vendors. 

 

The one thing that has been great for me is the travel agent.  If there are any Philly brides that are in need of a travel agent, I have a great one.  She has set up visits to the venues in Jamaica for me and I am also going again in June with my travel agent to a resort. 

 

Happy planning!

@FutureMrsGlover

Wow! You really do have a great planner! You are so good...planning early! ;) I began one year from my wedding date. It all seems to be working out nicely though.

 

I had gone to a few bridal & trunk shows in the beginning. You are right. Most of the resources there are not for a DW. Good freebies though.

 

You have to comment on any & everything to get your postings up to 150. (Just type thanks or congrats...)Then you'll be able to see photos and templates. People have some good ideas on here that may help you in planning.

I kind of had my own vision & just reached 150 this weekend so I already had bought or created everything by the time I could view. Oh well!

 

I'm in the Philly suburbs as well. Main Line.

 

Congrats and Good luck with your planning. I'm in the home stretch now! :wub:

Thank you!!!  I wish I was in the home stretch.....I am a little stressed because my parents don't want to fly and suggested we do cruise....they will drive to NY or Bmore to get on the ship.  Not at all my vision for a wedding..so I am keeping to my first plan.  This is my second marriage, so my dad has walked me down the isle.  I am doing it my way this time!!! 

 

I lived in Blue Bell but we recently moved to DE. 

 

Thanks for the tips and good luck!

I'm in DELCO, recently engaged. I am debating between Jamaica and Mexico unless I win a wedding reception. I am planning for a May or June 2016 wedding, I'm hoping I can find some resorts with great incentives

So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.
