Searching the Forum

Recommended Posts

Lately, I think we've all noticed a lot of questions/new threads being posted on things that have been answered/discussed at length on the forum already. While we understand that not everyone was around at the time the topic was discussed, this forum has some great search capabilities and is also organized quite logically.


In order to avoid, or at least minimize, a lot of duplicate threads or repeatitive questions, please do your best to use the search function of the forum before posting a new thread. Not only will this help to keep resource usage down (storing many threads about the same topic) but it will help future brides and grooms when they have the same question - they won't have to weed through several threads on the same topic.


Here are some helpful tips for searching ...



1) Search: In the main menu above, towards the right side, there is a option labeled, quite appropriately, "Search."

>> If you click on this menu option, a sub-menu appears.

>> From here you can either enter your search criteria, for example "sand ceremony," into the text field and press "Go"

2) Advanced Search: In the main menu above, towards the right side, there is a option labeled, quite appropriately, "Search." If you click on this menu option, a sub-menu appears (same as #1 above). Click on Advanced Search, which will take you to another screen where you can enter more criteria.

>> You could enter the same text, as well as some additional criteria.

>> If you know who posted something specific, you could enter their user id.

>> Or if you knew a date range, or what sub-forum you want to search in, you could enter criteria for that as well.

>> Also, you can choose to search only thread titles, as well as a few other options


3) Forum and Sub-Forums: Unlike some other forums, this one is actually categorized quite well. If you're looking for information on a wedding dress, or for restaurants in Puerto Vallarta, for example, you could easily navigate to the appropriate sub-forums.

>> There are many ways to do this, but here's one I use. Get to the main screen by clicking on the "Best Destination Wedding Forum" breadcrumb in the upper left corner of your screen, just below the main menu bar (see below)

>> From there, you can see all forums and sub-forums available. Simply look around and see what makes sense to what you're looking for!

**Along the same lines, PLEASE be aware of where you're posting your new thread. I know it's not always obvious, but do your best to post your new threads in the appropriate forums or sub-forums. This will only help us maintain this forum and make it an even more useful tool for brides and grooms in the future!

4) Unread Posts: To see all posts that you haven't read since your last visit, simple click on the "Unread Posts" link in the upper right corner of your screen. I use this MANY times a day!

5) First Unread Post in a Thread: There are 2 ways to do this; once you have a thread open, you can jump to the first unread post in that thread by clicking the "View First Unread" link in the upper left corner of the thread. Or, you can click on the little down arrows immediately to the left of the thread name.

    • I will forever be indebted to the great Dr Black for fixing my broken relationship after my husband left me for his mistress for 6 months. I never believed in spells until my friend introduced me to him. At first, I was skeptical about him because I heard lots about false spell casters but I put doubts behind me for i was desperate to get my husband back and I did according to what he instructed me to do. Now my husband is back just within 48 hours contact him via his email:Blackspelltemple@gmail.com or whatsapp +380501944596
    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
