My name is Kristen, and I joined this board because I’ve heard nothing but good things! I got engaged in Septemeber 2010, and we are getting married late 2012. No date has been set as of yet. We have decided to do a destination wedding because I have a tiny family. Mom, Dad, 2 sisters, that’s all that will be attending. My Dad was in the Air Force so we’ve moved and I don’t have a ton of friends. So I know people everywhere! He has family everywhere also..the only person close to us is his Mom. Who is single and can go anywhere. So I need help! We are thinking the Bahamas. My Dad does not want to go to Mexico, he has very negative opinions about all the crime, and being ex-military will not go. So Bahamas it is. Does anyone have any advice on where in the bahamas to go? I look forward to getting to know all of you! Yay weddings!

I’ve never been but the Sandals resorts have really good wedding packages & if you stay I think 6 nights your wedding is free.

@dynamic_duo: Thanks!! Looks like a great website!!
@jenn6051: I love Sandals, that would be my number 1 pick, unfortunatly it’s 18 and older and my little sister will only be barely 17, so I’m looking elsewhere.

You could try Beaches then they are owned by Sandals & are “kid” friendly.

you could also check out destination i do (the mag and the site). i wouldn’t nix mexico. we have friends who got married in sayulita and in tulum and both were amazing. those are smaller, quaint towns and they do A LOT of destination weddings, so they really know how to do it. just a thought.

Take a look at RIU resorts there is one in the Bahamas, Paradise Island. I stayed at the RIU Palace in Dominican Republic it is hands down the most amazing resort I have ever stayed at over there and I have been to a lot of resorts over there! They have different packages and the resort is beautiful hope that helps 🙂
