    Its frustrating because if I wait until next year to get prices, then some family members may think its too expensive and may not want to come and in that case I would plan a wedding here and I would be out of luck in booking anything until the following year because it would be too late by then.

    So thats my dilemma. Does anyone know of any nice hotels that are reasonably priced??
    First off - WELCOME! YAY a new Canadian Bride!!!!!

    Secondly, yeh - I bet it is too early for pricing. I do have some words of wisdom - because I was an early bird too - look at the pricing for November of this year - it should be a pretty good indicator of projecting the budget for the wedding. In my case it definately was.

    Thirdly, if a DW is your dream - DO IT - don't base your decision on your family - tell them what YOU and FI are doing and what you both want. Those that come, come... those that don't, don't - you'll stress yourself out trying to make everyone happy - believe me.

    And Lastly - be sure you have a great travel agent - planning will be all the more smooth!

    Welcome Welcome - and feel free to pick our brains on any subject~!!

    PS> CUBA is also an awesome destination!

                Welcome to the forum! I am going to be a Dominican bride this Nov an I can tell you that waiting until about March to book will save you a load of $$. If you book before that the price is very high. What I did was looked at the prices for Nov last year, and then I sent out STD's that said a generalized price we were looking for in a resort and told everyone to start saving. If they are going to come, they will. You will find that a bunch of people that say they will be there...won't be! This is almost standard. I don't know if there are many people on here that had everyone show up that said they would. I am getting married at the Grand Palladium, and if that resort intrests you, feel free to contact me with any questions about the resort or the wedding details.
