Congratulations on your engagement and welcome! I'm sure you'll find a lot of information on this site. It's wonderful! Try Punta Cana Dominican Republic. I'm getting married there in September.



Good Luck.

Hey Christina,


First, welcome to the forum-- this is an AMAZING tool that will be absoltuely invaluable to you during your planning process. I can't say enough good about BDW, you're going to love it (But beware... it is addicting. lol)


I also live in Calgary and actually have a great TA contact that is phenomenal at booking people nationwide for great prices. Also-- sell off vacations has opened a group booking line-- also an excellent option for price effectiveness. There are also many great TAs on this site that specialize in different locations, and I'm sure any one of them would be happy to help you out.


Please let me know if you have any questions. I've done a ton of planning from ol' Calgary, and know some great places for OOT Bag stuff, etc. PM me if you need anything. :)

I have started getting prices from my travel agent already for some resorts for April 2010. We were told when we started to look that you can start up to a year in advance when the flights are being released.

Gonna' have to agree with you about the weather! We were actually in Cancun in November (when it was nice here!) which is where we got engaged, and then turned ice age as soon as we returned! Can't wait to go back...

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
