The Sweetie Chronicles

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth

Caribbean Paradise

An island in the Caribbean seems like the perfect place to get married. The beautiful blue waters, the white sandy beaches, temperate weather all year round, and an exotic location far away from anyone who knows you. Not that being near people that love you is bad... but we are going to get married in a ceremony that comes down to just the two of us.

I adore the thought of getting married on the beach and then having the rest of the day and the rest of the week to just enjoy the resort, the island, the bed... No crazy reception right afterwards with hundreds of people all trying to hug you and get your attention. No traditions that put you in front of a crowd of people when what you want most is to be alone together. It sounds perfect.

So the question is: Which Island? We pretty much have decided that an all-inclusive is the way to go. Food, room, drinks and such are all included in the price, so no having to carry around a lot of cash and worry too much about budget. Sandals is probably the most well-known of those type accommodations, and they are used to doing weddings everyday, so that is currently at the top of our list. There is also a company called Couples that seems to have the same sort of resorts. I have been reading various reviews online and some people rave about how amazing they are, while others have written scathing reviews of their terrible experience.

Looking at the price tag that goes along with a seven night stay at one of these resorts (plus airfare), it seems a bit scary to think that you could pay that, plan your wedding from miles away, and then go only to have a terrible experience. Surely that just won't happen right? I keep thinking that maybe the people who have written the bad reviews are just people who are not happy. I imagine that even if we had some kind of minor trouble, like the room not being what we expected or having to share a pool that was supposed to be private... we would still have an amazing time simply because we got married and we were together.

It's so much fun to look through these websites and dream about our amazing wedding and honeymoon, far away from work and any other stress, just the two of us committing our lives to each other. Paradise.
