We are having the same trouble. We contacted or TA and the prices came back over 2000.00 per person. Then we contacted itravel and the same resort was 300.00 cheaper. I think we are going to wait a little while before booking for our feb 28, 2011 wedding to see if prices come down a little.

Most of my clients are Canadian , I organize their weddings outside all inclusive hotels , in private places where they dont have other people around, we have also special deals with all inclusive hotels as agency , some of my Canadian clients went to Barcelo , Playacar palace etc.....

Good topic! We are getting married at Las Brisas Huatulco, originally wanted Dreams but it was waay to expensive for family. I have been obsessively watching the prices and since Huatulco is a charter desitanation with Signature being the package provider this year it's been easy to keep an eye on! Lowest price so far has been $698 + $272 tases AI. We leave April 14 and haven't booked yet as prices are still coming down! Chatting with Signature availability on the flights have not been a problem yet for our party of 15.

Have fun planning!

Wow Fantastic prices LakerBride! We are getting married at the Paradisus Riviera in October. Unfortunatly we chose a resort that WestJet doesn't deal with so we are very limited in regards to flights. It was either AirCanada or Signature. I'm a bit of Signature hater (past experience) so we are going with AC. Our package was $1750 give or take a few dollars depending on where they are coming from. That's including everything. Not bad...not as good as LakerBride tho :P

We're using Signature as well and our lowest price was for our Calgary departures because they got into a price war with Airtransat. It was $980 taxes in! They got a SWEET deal! The rest of our departure points were up to $1500 taxes in.

Thanks everyone!! You have been very helpful. We're going to look into finding a local travel agent (our TA now is in New Jersey through destination weddings.com) and go from there. Some of you were able to get some amazing deals!! I'll do my research before making any serious decisions about changing our resort. Luckily, I'm ahead of the game and still have a year. I like to plan ahead! haha

Hi,

 

So far what I found is the big chain TA companies seem to charge the most... I did quite a bit of shopping around and where I found the cheapest deal to be is iTravel2000 groups and a small local agency in Edmonton called 'Travel With Us Inc.' which I went with because they are very attentive.

 

The most expensive I found was destinationweddings.com which charged on average $300 over a local agent (lost my $50 deposit on that one, oh well) and Uniglobe.

 

Our price from Edmonton to the Barcelo Maya Tropical in RM Mexico is $1458/pp including taxes/AI.

 

Hope this helps!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
