Good idea. I did this too but to watch weddings. Did you do that too?

    I did, it's a wonder I didn't dream of destination weddings all night long!

    Juan totally did that. I was more into the pictures but he always likes to see thing and not imagine them, so he searched for videos :). I think it is very helpful, especially videos made by the guests and not the professional ones that the resort provides. 

     

    The resort we booked at has videos of weddings at the venues we chose and that was super helpful to visualize how I wanted the wedding there.

      Soooo... I contacted another TA, I just can't bring myself in to focus here. Please tell me picking the resort is the hard part!

      Colours too. As mentioned I'm starting to think these colours are all too girly and thinking of going with more orange.

      I'm considering going more orange as we both love the colour.
      Not the best picture of me, but for comedy here's a shot with FI after I caught a friend's bouquet in September 2013.

      It is the hardest part but don't make it harder than it needs to be. Make a list of what is a must have and your price point. Also your preferred location and just get err done. You can search for a resort for months upon months if you allow yourself too.

      Colors aren't girly :) choose your faves. Who cares what others think, it's your wedding :)

        He doesn't. I promise you :) he might object to wearing pink but pink as your wedding color is ok! Hahaha. Pink was my color and the others were accents.

        lol I know when we got married, I had colours picked out. Showed them to hubby and he said no way. They were Wisteria and a wine colour. Don't remember the name now, but basically a lilac and a wine colour combo. I really liked it. Anyway, he said "we're getting married in Jamaica. I want bright colours that say the Caribbean. It didn't quite end up that way lol  His shirt was a peach on cream with green accents. My flowers were deep pink. That's as "bright" as we got. lol  For our renewal they are turquoise and bright pink, only he doesn't know it yet lol  I keep telling him I'm still thinking about what I want and absolutely I'll talk to him about it so that he knows. And I will. Really. But only when it comes time to get his suit colours. lol  My son has already said he's ok with the pink. We'll see how that goes in a couple of months.... lol


        I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

        I went through the same with the colors, I changed them pretty much every week. I say go for something that you like and that kind of speaks for both of you. For us, I knew I needed to have some kind of blue because that Juan's favorite color and it has grown on me too hahah. In the end I gave him two choices of color palettes and he chose one. I tried asking him before what colors he wanted and it got me nowhere, so the forced choice was a better approach :P.

         

        The resort is really the hard part. I almost drove myself insane trying to compare everything so I agree with Calgarybride, the easiest approach is to make a list of your must haves and budget. Give it to your TA and see what she can come up with. Then do a bit of research with what she gave you to make your decision. That's how we picked ours :) after our first choice didn't pan out.
