    Welcome and congrats from a fellow DR bride!

    I am getting married at the Paradisus Punta Cana in July, and the rates for the resort run around $250 a night. With airfare, my mom is staying 6 nights for about $1800. There are TONS of nice resorts in PC, so definitely check out that area. I went with the Paradisus PC because it's a beautiful 5 star resort, kid friendly, and the price was affordable.

    Congrats again!

        A good TA can get you what they call a special quote from the tour groups here in Canada. One thing to remember is that they can't give you flight departure dates and times this early out. They usually only have that info about 10 months from departure, so if Jan '09 is when you are getting married they should be able to get you some info. For example, I got a quote for the Melia Caribe Tropical Royal Suites section that came in around $1800 (don't have my notebook here to confirm) for 1 week double occcupance out of Halifax, NS in late April '09. Riu Macao standard room for the same duration was I think around $1680 (taxes in).

        Be sure to look at the travel forum section of this site, there are TA's in the US on here who give wonderful helpful advice. I know I used what it when I went in search of mine. Best of luck!

            Thanks for the quote info. I'm trying to plan for people to travel from Regina, Calgary and St. John's, so I'd like for everyone to have the same price

                  Welcome aboard... yes, the DR is nice along the coast...probably one of the most beautiful coastal areas I've ever seen.
