My husband and I were married 5/22/10 in the Riviera Maya, Mexico.It was the most amazing experience of our life! Everything went as scheduled, and was so much more than we could have ever imagined. Perfect is the only word for it.Destination weddings are awesome but definitely do require proper planning way ahead of time. If you dont do your homework and arent organized, you're going to have issues. One of the best things that could come out of it all is the fact that so many people made friends during their trip and have kept in touch and hung out after they got back to the States. There is nothing better than all of your guests telling you "It was the experience of a lifetime, memories for a lifetime!" - makes you feel really good.

I've recently been to a destination wedding and I know a few things went wrong while we were there (like some VIPs got very sick just from the usual down south water issues and whatnot) and while we all had an awesome time, I don't think I would replicate it, but I do like the idea of having a really casual and easy experience, so I'd consider a resort closer to home.

I got married at Magen's Bay in St. Thomas, USVI with 30+ guests! It was beautiful, and wonderful!

These are great questions to consider! I did a DW and me and my husband loved it. Some sick and older family members were not able to make it (they wouldn't have been to either if we did it in the U. S. due to still having to travel - way too many folks scattered over many miles). A DW would not have worked for us if we wanted to be control freaks over every minute details since we did not get married at a resort either. We just wanted to have a fun vacay with friends and family we don't to get spend much time with topped up with a killer party (a.k.a. the wedding reception).
