    Hi there, my name is Julie and I am newly engaged. My fiance Tim and I were hoping for a destination wedding on April 1, 2010. We have looked into so many resorts I have lost count...having no luck yet on picking a place. we are expecting between 40-50 guests and are trying to keep the cost down so people can afford to come. Our first choice was Jamaica but it is much too pricey so we have instead chosen Punta Cana. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on places we can go I would welcome any help. We are getting very discouraged and the few places we have decided on have e-mailed back saying they are booked or there aren't enough seats on the plane...

    Any thoughts

          I had the same problem with finding a date in April, especially around the spring/easter break time. I ended up moving to May myself, but that was because I was dead set on a certain resort, as well as a legal ceremony (so it had to be a Thur. or Fri in Mexico for our flights and such). Are you working with a Travel Agent? I found this to be really helpful as she sent out a bunch of requests not only for pricing, but for wedding dates as well from various resorts.

          Good Luck!

          Good Luck!

                Welcome! It is hard to pin down a destination, but once you get to researching each area, you'll find it becomes easier to find a place perfectly suited for everyone! Good luck, and welcome to bdw!

                      Hi, Julie! Congrats and welcome to the forum. Punta Cana is a wonderful place and they have wonderful resorts also. We visited Dreams Punta Cana, don't know if you've spoken to them, and their resort is just gorgeous. Good luck with everything and happy planning!
