    Hi BikeGirl!

    I will definitely keep you updated should I find a travel agent. My cousin works has a few contacts in travel and she met someone recently who supported your statement that your money goes much further in sept/October in DR. Apparently prices go up after Nov 15? But my primary concern was hurricane season -- thanks for clearing that up! I guess mid/late November should be safer.

      I have been looking at a May wedding. However, there's really not much stopping us from doing it in April instead. I want to go during a month when the weather is not prime (and thus, skyhigh) but not rainy/hot either (late summer).

      Would there be a big different in price between April and May? What about weather?
      From experience I would choose April over May or at least stick to the very beginning of May. Maybe my experience isn't typical though?

      A few years ago we went to Puerto Plata the first week of May (Bahia Principe San Juan), amazing weather, sunny every day, the resort was great! The next year we went back but it was the 2nd week. It rained ALL week and most of the a la cartes were closed, service was terrible etc. Our friends who went the week before us had sunny weather all week so I guess we just picked the worst possible time, lol.

        ^ Hey Mel, thanks so much for the info! I'd originally been thinking over the May 24 weekend since it's a cdn holiday and that would be one less day off from work for everyone but that's definitely something I'll have to take into consideration!

          Has anyone had their wedding in the beginning of August?!

          We Really want our wedding in Punta Cana but have heard that it is the rain/hurricane season in August?

          Sooo we were thinking we might take into consideration Riviera Maya (Mexico) ... Has anyone had an August wedding in either Punta Cana or Riviera Maya? What was the weather like?
