  • Wedding: A restaurant on the beach

We’re getting married in July! The wedding will be in the Caribbean on the beach and then we’re having the reception at the retaurant that owns that section of the beach. I’m lucky in that my family is from the Caribbean so we’re expecting a decent turn out of around 60 guests. We plan to have a brunch with both Caribbean and American breasfast/dinner foods since people in the West Indies tend to eat their largest meal of the day at lunch time instead of dinner. For desert we are doing a cheesecake bar because I don’t like black cake (traditional wedding cake in the Caribbean) and honestly I’m not 100% sure the bakeries there will make a wedding cake that I’ll enjoy. So we are buying cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory and brining it with us! 

Here is my dress


Here is the location


And our plans for the dessert bar (my favorite part lol)

And the colors are going to mimic my dress. So white table cloths with bright colorful flowers!

So those are the plans, we’ll see how it turns out in about 5 months!

  • Wedding: September 2016

We eloped last September. We rented https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/5368387 and the homeowner is an officiant who does ceremonies either in the beautiful backyard, or at a local beach or park. We said our vows at sunrise by Nauset Lighthouse overlooking the Atlantic ocean. There is another house that she rents out as well if you want a small destination wedding. We just had a couple friends, so we fit nicely in one house. It was so beautiful, and Amanda did an excelkent job of making it cery romantic.

  • Wedding: August 2016

We had a semi elopement in vegas with family. We got married in a chapel (very nice not tacky) and then we hired a room at the buffet at the hotel we were staying at, finally we all rode the high roller (big Ferris wheel). In the evening we took a helicopter ride over the strip! Was da best!

Allthatglitters07 :  Please tell more, I am thinking about eloping here too! Was there a different package you could chose from since it’s just the two of you? I can’t seem to find any resorts that have something specail for just two.  Are there upgrades you can get?
