    I don't know if I posted this earlier but we are going to Now Larimar Punta Cana and it's only about $1200 each after tax.

     

    Also a couple of resources:

     

    Decor; CreativeWedding.ca

    Suite: tailor4less.com (they say they are US but are actually in China and ship to Canada pretty quickly according to one of my clients).

     

    Happy Planning!!

      Airica26- What do you mean they have a resort credit promotion of $1500. I am very confused.


       

      Great to see that there are lots of girls from Wpg. Hopefully the weather will be like a normal winter next year so that it really feels like a winter get away. Not complaining though! +22 tomorrow! that's insane!

      I was quite shocked at the cost. I guess I thought it would be around $1500 to $1800 max but for a good resort it seems to be closer to $1800 plus. My TA told me flight prices are going up May 2012 so this could be the issue. There are resorts you can go to that will be closer to $1500 but they will be far inferior and I figured might as well get people to pay $200-300 more for a much better resort.

       

      I am getting married at Moon Palace (Cancun) in 2013 and it seems to be running between $1800 and $1900 but it is an easy sell to guests because they have a $1500 resort credit promotion. Maybe finding something like that will make you feel at ease about the high cost.

        Every room gets a $1500 credit to use for various things. Golfing, spa treatments, tours, room upgrades, etc. You can even use your $1500 towards select wedding packages. I opted for the complimentary wedding so I can't use it (even for anything I add on to the complimentary wedding) but I can still use it to go to the spa and my fiancee can golf for free.

         

        This may be a bonus to people, especially the room upgrade people can use it toward. My guests will be paying about $1800 and having this $1500 really cushioned the blow some people felt about the price.

         

        Here check it out.

            Hello fellow Canadian girls!

             

            So nice to see so many of us on here :)

             

            Any advice on what I should be focussing on at this point of planning (I'm slightly at the slightly less than 11 month mark)? So much to do, haha!

             

            Looking forward to chatting with you all

                Hello Canadian Newbies and welcome to the forums!  tkuzma if you haven't already created a wedding website this is a great place to start and a great tool to keep your guests updated on your progress.  There are a lot of threads on them to help you get ideas.  I leave April 15th for a site inspection trip on the weddings at Karisma Resorts, keep an eye on the wiki for an article I will be posting.  You might find it helpful for your wedding at El Dorado Maroma.

                Congrats and happy planning!!!

                    Hey everyone, I guess I am a posting newbie but I must admit I have been lurking on here for a while. This is such a great community with excellent tips and advice. 

                    I am hoping to get married in the Mayan Riviera this November. We originally had our date booked at the Azul Sensatori which I LOVE but once we got package prices it turned out a lot of guests could not afford it so we now have to change our venue. I am terrified to pick another place! We have been looking at the Ocean Coral & Turqusa. I read all 119 pages on that forum! Great advice an tips. I am still unsure though. Waiting to hear back from my TA on some other recommendations within our price range. I just want it booked! It is nerve racking at this point to not be booked yet. It is getting close!
