For choosing where to go when you elope. We aren’t into vegas, and are thinking somewhere sunny and sandy. I found a resort I like in Jamaica, but want to make sure I am not missing something else out there. All Inclusive = Good!

It really depends upon how much time you have, and what your budget is. Some destinations have a longer residency requirement, so you would have to arrive several days before you can get married there, while others only require that you’re there 24 hours in advance.
Many of the all inclusive resorts offer great destination wedding packages that are perfect for two people.
I would recommend something that is adult only, as it will likely be more romantic.

I believe Jamaica has a 48 hour requirement, so not so bad to spend 3 nights there, huh? i am getting married in Jamaica! which resort did you choose?

I second the advice to choose an adult-only resort. I’ve stayed at Couples Swept Away in Negril, Jamaica, twice and loved it. They have several resorts in Jamaica.

@NotYourTypicalBride: Couples Swept Away is one of the ones we are looking at!!
@Sassy5412: We were planning on going 10-14 days
@Bliss Honeymoons: 5,000 – 10,000 is our budget, which is 50-75 percent less than we were going to spend on a big wedding…

I’m getting married in the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana exactly.

We had a blast in Punta Cana for our Destination Wedding… The resort was all inclusive, and they had wedding packages to choose from with some options you could pick out from a menu… Once we chose the resort, it basically took us 1h to organize the wedding, once we got over there.
We also considered Mexico, but they won’t let you get married if you don’t take blood tests over there; and we’re not into needles… especially in a country we don’t know.

@Miss Mitzie: That’s great. 🙂 I haven’t been to any of their other resorts, but I can tell you that if you choose Swept Away, you won’t be disappointed. It’s a beautiful beach and property, and even though it was almost full when we were there, we often felt like we were the only two people around. Seriously! The food was consistently excellent, and there are lots of fun activities included. (Don’t miss the sunset snorkel booze cruise!) As a matter of fact, my FH proposed while we were sailing on a Hobie Cat. 🙂
