      Welcome!

      If you have any questions feel free to ask away ( it'll also help with that NOOB status!!)

      Jamaica, Cancun, Cabo & Puerto Vallarta have really good nightlife.

      St. Lucia has some great day trips!

      If your guests won't be there a full week you won't need a location that is so chock full of activities as you'll also want time to visit!

      If you need any help feel free to pm me!

      Ta Jennifer

        Welcome to BDW land!

        The Cancun/Riviera Maya area can be very affordable and lots of fun for families, honeymooners and just about everyone. My wife Karen (Luckyk72) and I got married at Dreams Tulum and loved it.

        Take a look around, see what places might interest you, then ask away. Pretty much any place you choose will have a bunch of info on here.

        Happy planning!

        Welcome to the forum. Keep posting and your status will change. One slow day at work and the next thing you'll know is that you're a junior member.

        Congrats on your engagement. FI and I went thru the same issues re venue. We knew we wanted an AI to keep costs controlled for guests. We looked at the Bahamas (not great options with kids), Bermuda ($$$), Barbados ($$$, plus 12+ hours in transit for my family from the W. Coast), and Mexico.

        We finally decided that we'd go with Cancun/Mayan Riviera. We're still figuring out where (leaning heavily toward the Paradisus), but at least we have the geography under control.

        Good luck with your planning - everyon here is SO helpful.

        Happily married since 2008

          Thank you everyone for all of the info! I spent about 5 hours at work on BDW site! Thank goodness my cousin is my boss and is excited I'm getting married....I'll see how long I can milk it

          I just thought about posting a new thread for my venue. Even though this will be our second marriage I still want something romantic and special for both of us since we had sucky prior marriages. We are both inlove for the first time, so this is awesome! Some of the logistics are giving me a headache... We both have 7 year olds and we want them there, but need to find a nice place not too super expensive but not too cheap either that accomodates children. Then we want to send them home with relatives so we can journey on to our honeymoon at an adult only resort. But I need to copy this under a different post title!

          p.s. LOVE THE SMILIES!

            Jason thanks for the advice...I am so telling my FI to sign up just like you did...I think that's awesome and he could kill some time on his blackberry while waiting for all the various hearings he attends! More points!!

                    You will find a lot of information on this site. One thing when looking for a destination you want to make sure that they don't have to go for a week. Some destination only have 7 day trips and some people want to attend but are not able to go for the entire week.
