Destination Unknown???? 2011

Recommended Posts

Wow i'm so glad to have stumbled on this Forum!!! I was beginning to feel so frustrated with what is supposed to be a fun, stress free wedding planning process. To my surprise I found myself relating to alot of other soon to be brides struggling to get pricing from thier TA's for 2011 and not being able to find prices within our price point.

 

At this point I am searching for a great resort and destination for a great price. Any suggestions ladieshuh.gif? I'd like to keep the price pp around $1200.00-$1300.00, and preferably in the caribbean (hopefully punta cana which seems to be a little more expensive than expected). We are planning for end of march 2011 but flexable on dates if we can get a better rate as late as May 2011). Also, I have a couple of travel agencies working on rates for me but they seem to be MIA all the time. Any recommendations?

 

P.S. Is my pp realistic? We want to keep it as low as possible, but for a good hotel not a dumpy one.feedback.gif

 

Help...please!!!!!

I can't wait to see what the other brides on here say. I felt the same way and have gone back and forth about different resorts. I first thought I could just do it all myself, but quickly learned that resorts are willing to give me price quotes because I'm not a TA. So, I went to talk to a TA two weeks ago and last I heard from her, she's still waiting on the resort we think we like to get back to her. . .I like your idea about going to multiple TAs, maybe I should try that. Good luck!

Hi and welcome! That price range is fairly average and I'm sure you'll find something soon. I was married in Punta Cana (Dreams), but in November, so the prices were a little cheaper than other times of the year. We flew Sunwing, out of Toronto, and all in it was about $1200 pp.

I am in the same boat as you! I am looking for the beginning of Feb. and the price I was quoted for the Paradisus in Punta Cana was $2700. But when I looked for it myself on the same TA's website for the end of October (that was the latest date I could look up) it was only $1200. This is really frustrating! I have contacted 4 different TA's some have been more helpful than others. Keep me posted on what prices you have been quoted because I am also flying out of Toronto! And I will do the same :)
