My husband and I knew that we wanted to have a destination wedding after getting engaged on the beach in Rivieria Maya, Mexico. Lucky for us, our parents completely supported that idea. I used BestDestinationWedding.com for all of my questions and many of my craft ideas. The other pro is the total cost of the wedding. Did you know the average wedding today costs $30,000?! And this doesn’t include your honeymoon! We got married in Lucea, Jamaica at the Grand Palladium Resort and spent a little over $9,000! That included the 9 day all-inclusive hotel, flights, decor, invitations, my dress, his outfit, our at home reception and everything that came with planning it.
