Recommended Posts

Barbiegirl, it took 2 weeks for Air Canada to give us quotes, still waiting for others. Be patient, lots of time...

I am looking for another dress, I should have tried the style of the dress before I ordered it. It will definitelly be strapless...Let me know...

Margret, that's a shame! Maybe you could use this dress for a TTD session?!?!?!

I will be patient! Thanks for the heads up! Now that I've secured the wedding date I'm able to stay calm.....now i just wish people would stop asking if there's any developments with the wedding! lol

I'll keep you posted on the dress! I hope it arrives soon!!!

Thanks CND_Redhead, that's what we're going to do! I'm not set on a date so if going a week later or earlier saves my guests money, that's what we'll go with. Are you in Toronto? If so, mind disclosing your TA? wink.gif

barbiegirl_27, did you end up switching away from Maritime or are they the 3rd?

We still haven't gone to a travel agent yet. Things have just been so busy but we really need to get on it! Lol.

Bikegirl-- I'm north of TO. Orangeville, but we used Marlin Travel.
We originally were drawn to Marlin b/c if you've got enough Airmiles points saved up you can redeem them for vouchers towards your trip. Each 360(roughly) points get's you $50 off.
I've had no problems with our TA. We also went to a Flight Centre and the TA we dealt with there was nice too.

Bikegirl.....Maritime Travel are our 3rd try at a TA. I did a search on their website to see if there was a local agent that specialized in weddings, and there are 3 just at the mall by me. When we popped in there was just one lady there, but she was one of the 3 specialists. She said she plans about 12 weddings a year, and already has 4 on the go for next year.....we're hoping we've found our final TA!

Yikes, I just got a quote for Dreams Palm Beach for the week of March 12, 2011 which is Ontario's March break and it is $2,384 with taxes. This is the earlybird special, if we don't book and pay by July the prices will go up $635 per person. There is no way the price should be over $3000 whether it's March break or not. I told my TA to check again in June and that I'm not locking in prices until they are closer to the $1500-1700 range which I am told probably won't drop to that until the fall.

I would have a very hard time waiting until the fall to book a group package. Are you having a lot of people at the wedding?
I was quoted about $1700 for a couple places in DR & Mexico (4 & 5) star for Jan-March. $3000 seems rediculous! We were quoted Bahia Pricipe DR end of Jan for $1600 from Flight Centre & Marlin Travel.
Have you thought about trying a differnet TA? or resort? (sometimes the Dreams/Beaches ones are overpriced due to commercialism)

Just a thought.
Best of luck,
Cheers,
Cheers

Yikes is right! That just doesn't seem right! Is that just for a regular room....not for the honeymoon suite or something righthuh.gif I would definitely not be locking down at that price.....I would wait and maybe shop around!

Alright Ladies, I've received my first quotes from Maritime Travel and I'm now totally freaking out. She's saying it's going to be about $2100/person from our various spots in Canada. If we wanted to fly direct from Halifax it would be about $400 more.....I'm seriously freaking out about telling people this price. She said she really doesn't expect the prices to drop at all, in fact she expects it to go up if we don't pay our deposits by Aug 31. She also said it's this high b/c of when we're going.....if we were going later in Feb it would be cheaper.

Barbiegirl...that includes flight, right? If so, that seems about normal for the prices that are out right now. However, my TA said prices "should" drop later in the summer, as the resorts start doing specials and making deals to get people to book. I have the ability to lock in the lower prices when they fall, which eases my mind a bit. Are you able to do that?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
