Hello Ladies,

 

My names is Victoria and I am from the Guelph, Ontario area.

We have confirmed April 18th 2013 for our date, ceremony at 4pm on the beach and we have picked the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for our resort.

I am so glad I have found this forum, it is full of so many great ideas!

Welcome to the forum Canadian Newbies!  It's great to see so many Canadian Brides taking advantage of this awesome site.  Victoria you will love the Majestic Colonial it's on a beautiful beach for a wedding they have a really nice Gazebo if you plan a garden wedding.  The food was really good, the rooms where nice and modern and the service was great.  Happy Planning everyone!

I am also new to the forum and have found it very helpful so far! We are also from Winnipeg, but we are getting married in Jamaica. Trying to narrow things down between Negril and Ocho Rios. We are doing an off resort weddin and waitng for some quotes to come in. Is anyone else doing off resort? Is anyone using a wedding planner?

 

Amandanjordan- the prices we have been gettinf for Jamaica have been between $1800 and $2400pp all inclusive. It all depends on the resort.

I'm from Manitoba getting married in February of 2014.  Yep, I know it's soooo far off.  lol

 

I'm looking in the mayan riviera and the Azul Sensatori has looked the best to me so far.

 

What kind of prices are you girls getting so far.  Seems like anywhere from 1700 to 2000??

Hey Amanda,

 

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.

Hello! I am also from Winnipeg, originally wanted Barcelo Palace but couldn't have my guests pay the price they were asking. My FI and I had previously been to the Grand Sirenis on vacation a few years ago and we LOVED it. We have since decided to go back for our wedding March 2013, and the price we received for our guests is amazing. We have family all across Canada and friends in Minneapolis, the price range is from $1360-$1415, taxes in. Single room rate is only $100 more!  Highly suggest it for anyone who is unsure!

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!!

    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
    • Hi Oleg. Thank you for such a cool app. I advise you to add an item there: ftara weddings | toronto wedding photographer. It would help me a lot. I myself recently came to Canada and it was difficult to find good photographers. It would be much easier with your application.
    • I am coming to cancun sept 4 2021 and I am interested in releasing butterfly's in remembrance of my recently deceased daughter. We are staying Riu palace costa mujeres. Is this something we can do
