- Wedding: March 2005 - Westside Loft, New York
A friend just got engaged and is trying to decide on a location for her destination wedding. If you’re having a destination wedding, where are you getting married? And what destination wedding planning sites have been the most helpful?

St. George Island, FL Check it out, it is fabulous, no commercialization, no crowds, just sand, water and relaxation. Prices are high in peak season so best to go mid to low times of the year.

Cancun, Mexico! We had it at Le Meridien Cancun.
This is the site I used a lot: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum

I read the Knot Guide to Destination Weddings. It really helped me a lot.

I’m doing mini-destination in Lake Tahoe. There is a Lake Tahoe planning guide online that I went to first before booking anything… We had the advantage of knowing our destination quite well, since it also used to be home!

We had a destination wedding in Taipei…sadly, we couldn’t find any helpful wedding planning sites for the area, at least not in English.

I’m getting Married in Maui. I scoured theknot.com and google for wedding planners there. I talked to prob about 7 or 8 of them and asked a million questions about Hawaii. I also found mywedding.com to be helpful, you can pick your own ‘guide’ for whichever area and they list a bunch of vendors in every catagory.

Mr. Staticboy and I are getting married in Asheville….far enough away that not everyone in the world will come, but close enough that our dear friends and family will. Then we are having a party, the day after we get back from our honeymoon, for all our hometown friends and family.

We are getting married in Yosemite, at the Ahwahnee hotel. It was really the FI’s decsion- he talked me into it. I had not really even thought about having a destination wedding but I think the idea of getting married surrounded by so much beautiful nature and at a really nice hotel is just amazing! We do not want a large wedding, just something with our closest friends and family (about 80 people), so this will work well for us I think.

Orlando, Florida…we got engaged at Disney, and our families are from different states, so it was a great in between. Plus Disney can be super affordable because of all the deals you can find. And no passports are required!

We’re hosting our wedding in Las Vegas. Not outside of the country but far away enough that it counts as a "destination wedding". We’re sticking around for a couple of extra days after the wedding for a mini-moon since our actual honeymoon won’t be until 2010.

We are getting married in Negril Jamaica at the Moon Dance Villas. I concur with those who mentioned bestdestinationwedding.com. Lots of invaluable information there.
I wonder if it is possible to start a Destination Wedding category here at Weddingbee? Anyone know?

- Wedding: July 2018 - Dreams Cancun Resort & Spa
@cdogsmom: Do you mean starting a DW local board, cuz I agree that would be pretty cool. In the meantime, the wiki is a good starting point:
I also relied on the bestdestinationweddings forum to plan my Cancun wedding. It was a true lifesaver and Tammy (Host) is a rockstar in my book.
