The first vacation I took with my (now) fiancé was a cruise to Bermuda. We had been going out for about a year and were already discussing our future together. We found a secluded beach in Warwick Parish. It was here that he proposed to me. How he kept this a secret I will never know. Of course I said “Yes.” I was on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, on one of the most beautiful days of the year, with the most beautiful man I had ever known asking me to spend the rest of my life with him – what could possibly be better? Only one thing – to get married on this very spot. So we decided to plan a tropical destination wedding. Yes, I know that Bermuda isn’t technically a tropical island but why get bogged down with details. It’s so corny but we made a heart in the sand and inside the heart we etched the date on which our wedding will take place next year. We took a picture of the heart and with the turquoise water in the background we designed our own tropical save the date cards.
Because we are planning a destination wedding we sent the save the date cards out almost a year ahead of time. This way our family and friends have enough time to make plans for the occasion. It’s almost selfish to expect people to attend a destination wedding but Bermuda holds such great memories for us and after all, this occasion is for us so why not do what we want to do. Nothing can take away from our special day – even if there isn’t anyone else there to share it with us.
