  • Wedding: April 2012

your fist 3 reasons are why we decided to nix the Destination Wedding idea.  We were all set, ready to put a deposit down but we decided we wanted to have more friends and family celeberate, If we had to legally get married before we left I felt there was no point in doing it all over agian if it is not the real thing, and I really wanted to get away from our parents on the honeymoon, did not want them showing up everywhere!! I wanted us to be on our own private honeymoon! So we decided to have a fun and simple wedding here and relax on a wonderful honeymoon after, best of both!

I’d reccommend sitting down and drafting a budget for both.  (Include everthing – it adds up quickly!) We’re getting married in Canada, but if I had the chance I would have done Destination Wedding for sure (our little giri has had recent lung issues, and flying was questionable for a bit, so we didn’t want to risk anything happening en route to the wedding).  Once you realize how much all the little things cost, and how stressful the planning can be, you might decide you prefer to get away. 🙂

  • Wedding: June 2012

I am from Toronto and we are doing a destination wedding.

1) We are doing out civil ceremony in Mexico.  It costs $300 and there is bloodwork and some paperwork.  But in all honesty, it’s not THAT much more work than getting married at home.  It would cost us the same for a civil ceremony here in Toronto.

2) This is THE MAIN reason why we chose Destination Wedding.  We had a TON of obligatory invites which we did not want to pay $200 a head for.  So going to Mexico really help to narrow it down to the people that matter the most.

3) Fiance and I are staying 5 days at one resort with our guests and then another 5 days alone at a different resort for our honeymoon.  Guests are able to do/stay however long or short they like.  But after the wedding, Fiance and I are leaving the resort. =)

4) I am born Canadian, HATE the cold. I can’t wait for the heat.  We schedualed our ceremony at 5pm in June AFTER the hottest time of day, on the beach (with a breeze).  Photographer also said it was the best lighting for photos.
