Hiya! I'm Missie and I'm new. While looking for airlines that allowed wedding dresses to hang, I came across this forum and joined. I am getting married October 10, 2016. I know it seems far: 26 months, 13 days, 22 hours, and 38 minutes away according to my countdown app, I thought it would be nice to still enjoy it and look forward to it. See, we WERE going to get married September 5, 2014- booked many vendors, bought the dress, and as we went along, it didn't feel right. I wasn't feeling like I thought I would. I wasn't excited, giddy or happy nervous. We both have little family and we didn't want to include fair-weather relatives who wern't going to show up anyway. Not to mention, the loss of 5 bridesmaids out of 6, the move to Colorado his parents made, it became a debacle. My Mom passed away 4 years ago, so my heart wasn't fully in the wedding anyway so we called it off. A few days after, he says let's do our original plan. You mean Jamaica, I say. Yes. Let's book it. I don't know I say. After some convincing, mainly him begging me, we have officially booked our Weddingmoon for Beaches. This time, I'm ACTUALLY excited! When we booked, I felt that happy excitement! Even though our ceremony will be intimate, (like VERY just us and the kids) it's in a beautiful place, with the man of my dreams surrounded by those I KNOW who love us. Getting married has never felt more perfect! We both realized that we didn't need what the shows and experts say a wedding should have. We have what works for us!
Any Other Weddingmoon Brides?!

Thanks everyone! Beaches has been great by allowing us to use many of the things from the previous wedding so we get to use our colors purple, blue, silver with bling ( I so need my sparkles lol). The only thing left to do is airfare and the dress. Nathan prefers I shop now for a better price since 2016 prices may be higher but I think if I wait I can find a 2014 in 2016 at an even better price. That's the dilemma of the year for us lol.

Hey! I'm also new to this site, I'm so glad I came across it in my desperate search for guidance! I recently got engaged while on vacation in Dominican Republic and am now trying to plan this wedding! We would love to do a destination wedding summer 2015, most likely July. I'm in search of a resort - we've been looking in Riviera Maya - Dreams Riviera, Excellence Riviera Cancun, The Royal Playa del Carmen, and a couple more. I will be looking into the topics to get feedback from those who have experience with a destination wedding in Mexico! Hope to find a little support/guidance here!:-)
