    Hi! I'm from N-O-T-L, Ontario in Canada and we're getting married in Punta Cana the first week of January 2011. We're excited and thought we had everything under control months ago.

    We're trying to book now and get everyone coordinated and we're feeling super overwhelmed. Before things get too much further along, I'm looking forward to reading what others have done and trying to get some advice!

                Hey Kara - you've definitely come to the right place! Try to just step back and take things one step at a time whenever you can. Whether you're getting everyone booked on your own, or using a travel agent - there's lots of ladies here who have done both and can definitely help you out.

                p.s. I love N.O.T.L. and wish I was there to visit more often! I lived in Burlington for a long time and went to school in St Catharines! FI loved our summer trip back there and wants to go back for more wine tours soon :)

                  WELCOME! Don't get stressed - whatever question you have, ask it here (or research it here first) and it will be answered. I'm also from Ontario (just north of T.O.), and I thought I would never be able to get things coordinated. From my own personal experience, it was much easier working with a TA, as the hotels are much more responsive to them than to individuals. Plus, the TAs can negotiate deals that you wouldn't be able to get on your own. There are several who are members of this site, and therefore have TONS of experience and can offer lots of advice to you. Your choice of resort is going to be one of the most important planning decisions you will have to make, so go ahead and take advantage of the resources available to you. Before you know it, you'll be on to other more important things -- like picking a dress!! Good luck :)
