Newbie Just engaged Thanksgiving!
Posted 29 November 2006 - 06:53 PM
My fiance popped the question Thanksgiving night! woo hoo anyway...we already know that we want to have a destination wedding but i am overwhelmed with choices in venue. We live in New York as well as the majority of our families, so we are trying to find caribbean locations with non-stop flights. We are thinking the summer/fall of 2007 so I know that I have to get on this quick!
Does anyone have any thought on the Bahamas or Aruba? The best months weather-wise? I can't imagine it raining on my beach wedding day!

I don't know if there are direct flights - but have you ever been to St. Kitts - beautiful! I was there in Jan. 2006 - and loved it.
It sounds like you're flexible with dates - I'd suggest finding you're "dream" location and then seeing what they have available.

Dont know anything about the bahamas but have heard great things about Aruba.
Before I found this forum and decided that the Riviera Maya was more economical for us I was seriously considering Aruba!
1. Aruba lies under the huricane belt so huricanes are not a threat and they rarely even have rainy days.
2. For some reason around my area anyways Aruba is hands down the place that everyone vacations to when going to the carribean. It comes highly recomended.
3. the BUCUTI BEACH RESORT, is stunning. My friend hooneymooned there and to this day wont stop raveing about it. And if we could afford it this would probably be on our top choice of Carribean resort wedding locations.
4. The DIVI (ALL INCLUSIVE LOW RISE) also comes highly recomended and is a little less expensive than the high rise all inclusives and also a little less windy from what I have heard.
5. The high rise section (Palm beach, Arashi beach) has many resorts to choose from including both All inclusive and Non all inclusive.
Hope this helps a little good luck!
The only negative thing I have heard about Aruba is the wind factor is pretty high.
One last thought, Ofcourse this is just hearsay from friends that travel to and from Aruba but we fly out of Boston and supposedly the non stop flights are on Saturdays. I have never actually looked into this but just wanted to throw that out there.

I can't dont have any info on those two places. The only part of the carribean I've visited is Puerto Rico. It was beautiful!
But I noticed we haven't developed an area for that yet. Oh well!
