I don’t know who wrote that lovely quote, but it is one of my favourites. Especially for
a colourful beach wedding in the tropics.
Todays generation of brides is savvy. They have done the math and know just how much weddings at home cost. They figure out the dress, the flowers, the venue, the gifts, and just as important the honeymoon. It occurs to them, that the money spent here on a wedding could just as well go towards a house.
What romantic woman doesn’t love the carefree pictures of the gorgeous bride with her handsome barefoot groom romping in the surf as they bask in the glow of newly said nuptials?
Here are 10 things you need to know;
Book early, you can save your friends and family Three or Four hundred dollars in some cases. Think about your guests, what budget can they afford?
Only choose an adult only resort if no one in your family has children, you want them to be there, and you don’t want it to be a hardship for them.
If Mexico is where you want to get married, know that you must have a blood test done in Mexico, they do not accept the ones done here.
If you don’t want just anyone at your wedding do invitations/wedding announcements to a very specific list. It is still your wedding, you get to decide.

The Dominican Republic is one of the more difficult, between translation of documents and a lack of Justice of the peace, you may find yourself changing dates.
Stay away from dates in mid April, this is when tour operators change their flight schedule, you’re planning on a 7 day wedding celebration, and all of a sudden it is down to 5 or 6!
Finally, think about budgeting for a second week with just your sweetheart. Families are
fantastic, and it really is wonderful to all be together in paradise That said its also wonderful to take a deep a late night swim with the spouse of your dreams at a romantic hotel. Just the two of you!
