Yay, a Destination Wedding board!  I agree with Quiche, I am SO glad we did a destination wedding!  It ended up being a big vacation with 75 of our closest friends and family.  The wedding was over two months ago, but our guests are still talking about it!  I’m glad we made everyone take a Caribbean vacation with us 🙂

We’re having a Destination Wedding in Glacier Nat’l Park – so excited! But one thing I worry about is the environmental impact. We’re having only 17 guests, but everyone is flying. We want to be as green as possible, so I feel guilty about having a Destination Wedding. Does anyone feel the same way? What are you doing about it? I’m thinking of planting trees or carbon offsetting in leu of favors.

We are packing for our Australia wedding as I write this.

FH is actually geeking out by prepping my new laptap and I am happily watching. 

Our destination wedding is taking place in Adelaide, South Australia. Actually, just south of there in a little town called Sellicks Beach. The only people in attendance will be us, the celebrant, the owners of the church venue (www.thehundredeaves.com.au – which is a church but also a bistro by night), a bagpiper and two photographers. We are having a fairly traditional christian wedding and carrying an insane amount of wedding related items as "carry on" – my dress being the heaviest but also I’ll come back to let you know how indestructable a Maggie Sottero dress really is as it has already endured a flight from Portland to Houston and today is headed to Australia. We’ll see what fairs better, a tux or a maggie.

 Our day really will be about us and I don’t have the worry about trying to make sure everyone else is going to be ok but rather get to enjoy the entire day as our wedding day.

  • Wedding: December 1969

We’re getting married here in Maine – on the beach or at a lighthouse. I’d love to get married on an island or in the South on a beach but half of our family (my side) has to travel over here from Germany…and if we would get married somewhere else, then EVERYONE would have to travel…too expensive. So we thought Maine is beautiful too and we just hope that the weather will be nice. 🙂 I’m so excited already!

Hey Destination Wedding peeps!

We’re set to marry on Oct 17, 2009 in Newport, Oregon.  We live in Seattle and our families are in Idaho, Washington and the Bay Area so it is a nice in between locale, plus we love the coast. 

It is weird to plan from afar.  My mom and I are traveling to OR this weekend to check out some different things.  For the most part, I’ve been looking at websites and calling people.  I can’t imagine what it would have been like planning a wedding, especially a Destination Wedding, Pre- Internet!

We are getting married in the Dominican Republic in less than a month!  I can’t wait.  We had A LOT of different ideas of places we wanted to go, but he really wanted Punta Cana, so we ended up at the Excellence Punta Cana resort.  We have a lot of friends that have great reviews of the resort, so that makes it even more exciting!  I can’t wait to get to the beach.
