My wife and I had a DW–only we had 15 family members and friends come along. We actually booked a cruise out of Maryland, signed the paperwork on shore and had our wedding at-sea. The wedding ceremony, reception (cake, pianist, hor dourves, open bar for 90 minutes), 7 day cruise and professional pictures came in at a whopping $2800. Our gowns and accoutrement were an extra $1000. It was so affordable we ended up paying for a chunk of our family members to come with us.

Would you consider an elopement in the Canadian Rockies? It wouldn’t be all inclusive, but we’ve had gay marriage country wide for like 10 years. So that part would be no biggie. Plus it’s beautiful out here. I know that Spain is also very gay friendly, but it probably wouldn’t be all inclusive either. Plus it’s further away and has a language barrier. Sorry I couldn’t be more help!  I hope you find something wonderful. 🙂

We’re doing Vegas… it’s technically Destination Wedding. Even if Nevada isn’t a gay marriage state.  We’re having about 40 family and friends join us. The ceremony is being done by my FI’s best friend who married his husband last year.  We have to do local vows to make our marriage legal but our Vegas wedding will be *to us* the real deal!

My BF’s wedding is in Cancun. She originally wanted it at a Sandals but discovered there were cheaper all inclusive places in the same area.
