    Hi all,

    My name is Crystal and I just got engaged on August 14. I want to have a destination wedding but I am having a hard time getting any info on them from the travel agencies because they are so busy with the weddings this fall. I would like to be married fall 2011 or I was hoping someone on here could tell me what the best months are for weather in the dominican or cuba. I have been leaning more towards Punta Cana. If anyone has any good or bad info for me please please let me know.... I am so lost haha...

    If you could tell me all about your experiences and some tips I would appreciate it so so much.

    Thank you

      Typically they say that July-Oct is the rainy season - but I wouldn't base your decision completely on that! I had a January wedding & completely got rained out, and Punta Cana did the week before that! So I say book whenever is convenient for you & your guests! You will find an abundance of information on both DR & Cuba here - search to your hearts content!!

      Happy Planning & to the best destination wedding forum ever!!!!

            Congratulations. I also had trouble finding a travel agent that wanted to do a destination wedding. It was also hard because pricing wasn't out yet and I didn't have a clue where I wanted to do it.

              I have planned my wedding for Oct 19th, 2010 at the Majestic Colonial, Punta Cana. I have done lots of research and I picked October for many reasons:
              1. Date far enough out for people to save $ to go.
              2. Oct is still technically hurricane season but RARELY does it happen in Oct (usually if at all it happens in Sept).
              3. Temperatures are between 24 to 30 degrees Celsius (coldest to hottest)
              4. Ocean is still warm from the summer months.
              5. Oct is not a popular month to travel so flights are usually cheaper.

              From what I understand, 2009 in the Domincan Rep for weddings has been crazy (because of the swine flu). A lot of Mexican weddings were canceled so brides booked up the Dom. Rep. So if you are having a hard time hearing back from the wedding coordinators or travel agents - don't panic. They are just crazy busy with this seasons weddings.

                Welcome to the forum Crystal. Yay for another Canadian! You will love it here, so many amazing people and tons of information! I would recommend Punta Cana. I have been to several resorts there and it was a great both times I have been! Happy planning :)
