    Wow, a place for Calgary brides! I am not actually technically in Calgary, but I am fairly close.... Lethbridge, actually. I will be using resources/shopping in Calgary, so this is great. Thanks!

        Thanks! I am actually originally from a small town more in central Alberta, but I moved to Lethbridge 8 years ago. Glad to be here!

          Hi all!  I'm just going to jump right on seeing as I'm part of this group now :)  We are planning to have our wedding at the Gran Bahia Principe in Punta Cana in February 2013.  I have a bit of a wait but I'm starting to look stuff up now so we can give our guests the maximum time to plan. 

          Has anybody here had their wedding at that resort?  I went through some of this thread but it's 172 pages long!!

          Looking forward to getting to know you all.

              Thanks JBean :)

              Has anybody used LaurieLee as a TA?  Would you recommend her?  Can I get thoughts or experiences?  I did a search and it says that her name was used in this thread, but again 173 pages of over 1700 posts....  haha.

                  I think you're referring to LaurieLee Rosser from Tier One travel. We were on the verge of booking with her but ended up going with Amy Wood at Romantic Planet instead as we got a much better price.
                  LaurieLee seemed very nice and knowledgable but in the end - for me anyway- it came down to price. I didn't want my guests having to pay upwards of $1700/pp for a week in Mexico. And thats what LaurieLee quoted me.
                  Romantic Planet came through HUGE - and for me..its also that DW and Honeymoons is ALL they do. They're not just any regular travel agent.
                  I've also heard through the grapevine that some travel agencies will take a higher cut from the tour operators (Sunquest, Sunwing, ACV etc) - and thats why the prices can be higher.

                  I'm not saying go with Romantic Planet..I would just check out a couple of different ones before you decide.

                    Well I've emailed a few places since last night and I guess I'll decide when I get some answers.  Sunshine, I see your wedding isn't until over a year from now as well.  Do you have anything booked or do you have to wait?

                      I've actually gotten quite a lot booked already. Ive got 31 people put down their deposits already. I've already been put in touch with our WC Jazmin - so we've picked the ceremony location...as well as the reception/dinner location.
                      I've already booked my photographer as well as the hair and makeup
                      Even though its so far away we've gotten a lot accomplished
