First Step?

Recommended Posts

I was at this stage recently as we got engaged on Mar 2, 2014. First step is to make an appointment with a TA and start looking at resorts! For us narrowing down a resort, in our price range, was the hardest part, and took us a good month of back and forths, checking into this and that, etc. TA's might have trouble getting Nov 2015 pricing (as I was booking 14 months in advance, and sometimes it was hard to get them), but you might be able to get an idea of projected prices, and narrow down resorts. Not only do you need to pick a resort based on per person price, but you also need to check out the websites and contact the wedding coordinators to make sure the vision you have is even possible, and within their wedding packages. (And affordable!).

 

It was a difficult process honestly, because you don't really know how many guests you'll have, (to meet certain minimums and maximums on venues) but if you do as much research as you can with approximate numbers you will be fine.

 

The resort is definitely first priority. Then you can start nailing down the other details and sending out invites. Getting the initial invites out as far in as advance as possible was key for us, to allow our guests the opportunity to save.

 

Happy hunting! :)

I went to our travel agent for suggestions and he gave me a list of resorts. I then started contacting the Wc for availability....I ended up having to change my date to get the resort I wanted. We have the date reserved but did not book rooms yet bc no specials are out yet and I am hoping they will offer kids free as our stay will be 4000 without but 6000 with them and obviously they are coming. This is for 14 days resort stay only so airfare will be additional but isn't even available yet...so really your first step is finding a resort you love whether it be from word of mouth, internet searching, or narrowing it down from travel agent

Happy Engagement!

 

I would start with a TA. They can give you location ideas after hearing what your vision looks like. Ours was able to provide everyone's packages, prices and pictures and reviews so we had a good starting point. I change my mind constantly and she was so patient with me and helped me with all of my questions.

 

Good luck and congrats!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
