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...

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
