How did I not know about this site?! Finding people to talk to about Antigua, or a destination wedding alone, on weddingwire or theknot is like pulling teeth!


Glad to have found this site – I will be random contributor as I still have 11 months to go and get all wedding-obsessed-excited in waves. I just happen to be in the middle of an obsessive week because my dress arrived today!!!


Looking forward to getting the dirt, tips, advice and expertise from you all   :wub:

LOL This site is like a gold mine!!! :)


Congrats to you. I was strongly considering Antigua until FI said let's do Costa Rica.  Good luck with your planning; this site is very helpful.

Welcome @sryan921! It is true - most of the world knows zero about planning a destination wedding so this site is great. In fact, as one of the last to get married, most of my friends are not all that interested in weddings in general anymore! They are 100% baby obsessed. So I get to talk about wedding stuff here without judgment or feeling like I'm boring anyone. You'll love it :)


I'm impressed you have your dress already! That is one thing I have not even started...


Congrats and happy planning!

I only have the dress because my sister wouldn't leave me alone about the damn thing! I got it on Ebay for half the price as the one and only dress I tried on at David's during their bridesmaid dress session. HUGE weight off my shoulder :)
