Sam and Diane Go To Tahiti

Cheers All Around!

White Dress. Nice Flowers. Sparkly Shoes

Sam And Diane Wedded Bliss!

Nooo. Not that Sam and Diane. Can you tell what my mother still watches on TV?

This is a bit more modern and fun.  It was a no pressure affair and full of surprises.

I didn’t catch the bouquet, much to my mothers chagrin, but them the breaks!  I drank and danced and had a good time.  Let’s go over a few of the fun things from the affair shall we?

  • Awesome toast by Jeremy
  • Great garter catch by Rob…David Tutera would be sooo not happy!
  • Fabulous “Pre-Tahiti” Fruit punch
  • Dottie and Demi (their two pugs) who surprisingly slept a lot.
  • The shocking reveal of the custom Converse Sam had made for dancing at the reception!
  • First dance tears
  • No Wedding Cake face plant. (I know you wanted to Sam)
  • Cleanup time sing-a-long.
  • BONUS = NO Hangover!

Now if every wedding could be like that I might even consider getting married myself.

Off to Tahiti

I’m officially jealous of the honeymoon. I always wanted to go to Tahiti (who doesn’t)?

Now that’s a wedding ceremony I could really get behind.  Right into the water and minimal wedding attire.  There are good times to be had on a global scale.  No reason to keep it traditional.

Throw on a pair of sparkly nikes, some flowers in your hair, a couple of white wraps and call yourself man and wife.  Then take a nice long run along the beach.

Kick up your heels and have a real night to remember!

Let’s Start With Something Fun!

What’s Included in All Inclusive Vacation Weddings?


All inclusive vacations are a popular way to get away at a decent price, as most elements of your trip are included in the one price. All inclusive vacation weddings are also a good way to get away, and get married during your stay. Like a regular all inclusive vacation, all inclusive vacation weddings include most elements of your trip and many elements of your wedding in one price. What’s included in all inclusive vacation weddings will vary depending on the resort or travel company you use, but most will include a core group of features and activities.

All of the vacation elements of all inclusive vacation weddings should be included in your trip. This consists of your airfare, lodging, food and possibly drinks while you’re away. Since you’re combining the wedding with a vacation destination, having all of the basics covered with one price is always nice. Depending on the resort and the specific package you get, you may also be entitled to spa treatments and a certain amount of night life or dining in and around your resort. The appeal of any all inclusive vacation is never having to worry about paying a tab or tipping the whole time you’re gone. With all inclusive vacation weddings, that appeal is magnified because so many elements of your wedding are also included.

The wedding features included in all inclusive vacation weddings will vary depending on your individual package, but some common inclusions are a wedding consultant, a marriage official, a copy of your marriage license, the wedding location, the ceremony itself, the reception, appetizers, dinner, wine or champagne, the bridal bouquet, wedding cake, music and sometimes a wedding gift from the resort. Since you’re combining the vacation element with the wedding, your honeymoon suite in the resort is also likely covered in the price of the vacation.

All inclusive vacation weddings really take a lot of the planning and headache out of your hands. The travel companies and resorts that are involved in these types of packages are experienced and do it on a regular basis, so you can trust that everything will move along smoothly.

Your main job when looking for all inclusive vacation weddings is to find the resort and package that works best for you and your wedding party. In most cases, vacation weddings aren’t overly large affairs, but you’ll still have to arrange for everyone in your party to get to the destination and be ready for the wedding. Some advanced planning may be necessary to account for everyone’s schedules, but once you know who can go and when, you can hand over the bulk of the work to others. Try to take advantage of the all inclusive part of the wedding vacation, and just enjoy the experience. Ask questions about what to pack and any other details you may think of, then simply show up at the airport when it’s time to go get married.

If you have always dreamt of the excitement of beach weddings, check out a variety of packages.
