May 2010 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Cara- Ours was booked through Transat, so I am not sure about Signature. My TA had said that flight times wouldn't be released for another few weeks for that late in May. I'm assuming yours would be the same. Have you checked with your TA? I know you have been concerned about this for a while.

We are hoping to go with WestJet vacations now, and I can't believe how much lower the prices are. We are also able to get all of our deposits back from Transat b/c of the changes they made. My TA had cound out by chance too, as the changes are still not listed on our file with Transat. It does show on the public site though, and I know Signature does too. Have you checked the Signature site to see if the dates are still listed the same? I noticed the changed showed up there for our eastern guests a couple of weeks before we found out through the group coordinator.

Hey Christina,

That's so frustrating!!! Hopefully you can get everything worked out. Do you already have your inviations printed?? That would suck to have to go back and change those with the new date. sad.gif

 

Our travel agent says that we should have our flight schedules in February... but I'm so worried they're not going to fly when we need them to, like the weekend before our wedding, and we'll end up leaving Calgary too close to the wedding or like yours was, the day of! I'm terrified, because I don't even know if I could switch our wedding day, because our resort is pretty booked up... Oh the stress... lol...I'm trying not to be stressed yet, and just hope for the best!

Cara- Have you checked the signature site to see if they are offering your original flight dates online still? Like I said before, the changes showed first on their site. Waaaay before the group coordinator let us know. I'm sure it will all work out!

Although it has been really stressful, and we have had to basically re-plan everything, it all seems to be working out. We were not willing to change the wedding date- too many deposits put down everywhere! Also, who's to say they won't change it again?!

I don't remember if I mentioned it before, but we are now reserved on the airline I would rather fly anyways for the same original dates. We will also be saving over $400 pp in a better room!

 

Cara, what dates were you supposed to leave? Anyone else on here have this problem?

Oh man, that was my worst fear. We booked with Air Canada vacations so we knew our flights WAY ahead of time, like back in September! My TA told us they are the least likely to change flight times so hopefully everything stays the way it is! That's awesome though if you can rebook for cheaper! Good luck girls!

Everything worked out for me! YAY! Same original dates, we have our flight times, and it is $500 cheaper than our original price per person. Now we seem to have an influx. of people who want to come! Eeek. Maybe I need to order some more maracas...

Only crappy thing is that we don't get any special incentives, but for that much in savings for all out guests, who cares!

 

How are everyones invites going? I can't believe we are in the 3 month range already.!

I just approved the final proof for my semi-DIY invites. I'm very happy with them! Hoping to send them out near the end of February I think.

I am about to send off half of my invitations today and finish the rest tonight or tomorrow. Woo woo! We felt we needed to send them ASAP because our TA told us that the resort is almost sold out.

I'll post them for sure when they're done. The daughter of one of my mom's friends is a graphic designer who does corporate work but she used to do wedding invitations and offered to do mine. So she designed the layout, I'm printing them on photopaper, mounting them on card stock, adding a little bling and DONE!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
