• How To Choose Your Destination Wedding Location

    oh lovely day

    Have you dreamed of having a destination wedding? Do you want a destination wedding but aren’t sure what location to pick? There are definitely lots of things to consider when deciding 1. whether to have a destination wedding, and 2. where to have your destination wedding. Here are some factors to consider to help choose the place that is right for you and your wedding. The best place to start is to think about where you are daydreaming about the most. Are you thinking of a resort fiesta in Mexico or a romantic island wedding in the Carribean? Start a pinterest board, read travel sites, talk to your partner, and make a list of your dream locales. Next, think about some practical issues. How many guests do you hope will attend? How difficult, expensive, etc. will it be for those guests to join you in your dream destination? What kind of experience do you most want to have with your guests? Are you also honeymooning in the same place after your wedding?

    oh lovely day

    As a wedding blogger I’ve been lucky to have visited both Mexico and the Carribean and have seen all that they both have to offer in the area of destination weddings. For the beautiful scenery alone, not to mention the relaxing and romantic vibe, both are ideal settings. Think about cultural offerings, the length of travel, the differences in expense for you and your guests, the food and drink options, and the resort possibilities when making your decision. You really can’t go wrong either way with Caribbean and Latin America Marriott and JW Resorts.


    Another great tool to help you decide what location is right for you is the Marriot Resorts Matrimony Quiz – it can help you decide on a resort and location that is the right fit for your wedding. Once you’ve found the location and resort that is right for you, request information from that resort about having your wedding at their property. Where do you plan to have your destination wedding?

    •  Three things: 1. You've got one day left to enter my @mywildbird sling giveaway, so head over to my blog (link in profile) and tag your friends. 2. I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy   Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo
       Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨
