Well I finally found a TA who said now is the time to plan - espcially since I am having a wedding over Memorial Day weekend!

 

Kittenheart - thanks for the mywedding.com - I love it! And I love that you do not have to have the "how we met" page activated. My Fiance said he did not want any of that stuff on the page - perfect!

 

My TIP: I keep a Memory Stick/Flash Drive in my purse with all of my wedding info - that way I can add things to it at work and home !

Jennifer, do you know how much Flight Center typically charges for their commission? Also, would your friend mind if I email regarding pricing as well?

Has everyone else used a TA or are they going direct through the hotel? Not sure which is the best way to do it as we have guests from all over Canada (mostly in BC), as well as guests from overseas, New Zealand and Australia. Suggestions?

Hi!

I'm not sure what their commission is at Flight Centre and I'm sure she wouldn't mind if you emailed her. Her name is Marissa Bauzon and her email is
marissa_bauzon.bc@flightcentre.ca She is out of town right now, so I'm sure her out of office will direct you to someone else, so you can get a quicker response.

Alot of brides are here are going with TA's and from what I can tell, that's your easiest bet because all of your guests can go through one place. I have contacted hotels directly and if you're willing to book your hotel and flight seperate then, that is a route to take as well as they only book for hotels. I didn't get into discussing any deals with them, but it seems you are better off to get a package as it's less hassle to deal with connecting flights, etc. Signature vacations has the following deal for group travel (as I'm sure alot of the tour companies do):

Signature Vacations offers one complimentary adult for every 20 adults booked.

They also have a Price Guarantee. They will make a one-time price adjustment on the group prices if it goes lower. This is based on them having sufficient availability in the system to rebook the whole group at the lower price. This offer expires November 16/09. So we will have to keep checking to see if the prices go down.

Hope that helps! Let me know how you make out!

Jennifer

Hey all,

 

I'm getting married at Bahia Principe the week of January 25th. The reason i say week is because i don't have a wedding date yet (yikes!). Nervewracking! My TA told me the hardest part of a DW is picking where you want to go - maybe, maybe not.

 

We were under the impression DW were way more hassle free than a locally planned one. We're pretty laid-back people, so maybe the relatively last minute decision to do a DW has contributed to some of our dilemmas (I've seeing some girls planning for over a year on here - that is some impressive organizational skills).

 

Fingers crossed it all works out in the end.

 

Here's a cheer to all the 2010 brides!

Hi Ladies! I JUST did a tentative booking at Royal Playa Del Carmen for Jan 16 2010. I've been in the Royal PDC forum for a while and have just ventured out to other forums. There's just so much to read in here!! Aaahhh...info overload!

 

Kitten...which WC are you working with? I am with Angie Hayes. I wonder how many WC's work there because I've read about so many different ones from Royal PDC.

Hi ladies,

 

Figured I would post on here, since I am also a 2010 bride. January 21st at the Paradisus. Just recently got my date booked and am trying really hard to organize a great group rate to offer. I am already starting to get super excited as I can finally start worrying about the more fun stuff, like photog and dj etc.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
