Any 2012 brides out there?

Recommended Posts

So far I have really liked working with a TA. I mostly like the idea so I don't have to worry about making all of the reservations/bookings/deals etc. Some brides do that all on their own and say its a lot of work. In terms of prices I don't yet know what kind of deal our TA will get us because prices aren't available yet out for our wedding date. We are looking for Dreams Palm Beach. She has a bride going there in March 2011 who she got a deal for $1500/pp and expedia says $2000/pp. So I'm hoping we will get the same sort of deal for our guests.

We are looking at getting married June 30th 2012 at Moon Palace in Cancun. We go on our site visit in March, but I'm so anxious to get moving! I'm so glad other people are as anxious lol

We're planning a 2012 wedding in either the DR or Jamaica.  My fiance is a teacher, so it will have to be either in March or over New Years.  We've talked with a travel agent and have a few resorts in mind, but no decisions yet.  Any suggestions on resorts?  We want to be at an all-inclusive but are trying to keep the costs for our guests as reasonable as possible, since we are traveling at busy times.  Has anybody looked into how much a wedding over NYE is?  Are there extra costs since it's a busy time?

 

So excited to plan - and very happy I found this forum!

Thanks!

 

I'm from Calgary and am also looking into going through a TA but it does seem like the rates they quote are kinda pricey compared to what you can find online. We're looking at approx. 100-120 guests so doing it on my own will just be a HUGE hassle.. not quite sure what to do.

Are you able to get rates for 2012 already?  I've been told that rates generally aren't released until a year in advance.  It's so hard to make decisions without that information!
