I think it was bad luck too. Which totally threw me off, because everything else fell so easily into place I felt like there was an angel on my shoulder! Seriously! From the dress to the rings to the decorations...all the planning was so easy and fun.
SO for everyone who is having bad luck pre-wedding, not to worry!!! By rights it should all turn around in time for your wedding!

I heard that it was rainy weather on your side of the island which totally sucks. We did have a few days of crapy weather as well, so I know how you feel. I wonder what happend with Sunquest though because we flew the same thing and had no problems whatsoever. Maybe it was the travel agent's fault?? Regardless, even though it wasn't exactly what you pictured, you still married the man of your dreams!!!!!
CONGRATS on becoming a MRS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And thanks to everyone for your comments...I am still a bit disappointed but my reality check is that I still had a lovely wedding despite everything.

I know it def. sucks we pay to do a DW part of the reason, for me anyway, for the SUN....here in montreal the past 2 summers have been RAIN RAIN RAIN...so we have much better chances in getting sun there the here....but if it rains...not much w can do about it, i know i will def. be disapointed but you know what your in a tropical place with a beautiful beach..with every1 you care about around you..
best thing you can do I guess is really check our the yearly temperature in the city you are going to and try to pick your wedding date accordingly...thats what we did we picked the MLD for #1 cost,beach,5 stars, reviews and may because cost and temperature, in cuba sometimes in dec,jan,feb it can often be tricky....and we did not want any spring breakers..so we decided for april/may but april was booked, def did not want EXTREME HEAT (which is what i am worried about..) so voila....
thanks for posting this thread it will be hopefully help for future brides....and thanks for being honest... atleast you are able to look back and be happy about your wedding...there are always pros and cons everywhere we go to get married...abroad or at home... you gotta choose whats best for you in the long run......

Also- a DW is supposed to be low stress and a vacation for everyone. I would hope none of your guests paid that money and then expected you to cater to them all week. If they didnt have fun or make the best of their stay their, rain or not, then thats their own fault. People can mope around and be upset or they can take it for what it is and make the best of it. And the whole point of a destination wedding IS to spend a week with your friends and family rain or shine - so i think we all know ahead of time we will be 'stuck' with our guests for a week. Thats no big surprise. If I only wanted to see my guests for one day, I woul dhave had a city wedding.
I really hope this post doesn't scare future DW brides. THis forum does a great job with gathering and giving a ton of information to prepare you and give you hints at planning your wedding and keep it LOW stress.
Im sorry you are upset with your weather, you won't be the first or the last bride to have crappy weather on their destination wedding. But I am happy you did take the time to enjoy your wedding day, b/c in the end it was and always will be your wedding day.
