2012 Bride

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else getting a LOT of push back on the prices?  Playacar Palace with airfare in January for 5 nights is looking around 1500-1600.  Ughhhhh!  What do you think my family would do if my FI and I decided to elope in Rome or Venice when we go at the end of this month? neenerneener.gif

With the way fuel prices are starting to climb again I would imagine that the rates on EVERYthing else is going to climb as well... especially flights!!! If you can get group rates locked in now I would suggest it. We locked in a pretty group rate through Sunwing Vacations with a local travel agent and we only had to pay the deposite for bride and groom to hold 30 + spots for guests. From what I hear fuel prices are going to be through the roof this summer, already starting in my neck of the woods... 1.499 a litre!!!! AHHHH.... time to trade in the truck!!!!

Hey! I am new on the site, have been looking around but not posting too much. I am having such a hard time deciding on a resort! We technically have a spot booked in the Dominican Republic at Majestic Colonial on April 14,2012, but now I am thinking Jamaica is better .

Any advice, or suggestions on choosing a resort would be so great! I am getting pretty stressed out about it because the save the dates have to go out soon!

I used to work for a travel wholesale company owned by Expedia, and I actually sold destination weddings for a living... You may want to think about doing it a different time of year. January through spring break is the most popular time of year to travel to Mexico, and therefore, it is also the most expensive. We chose to get married in May because the prices drop significantly by then, and they drop even more so for July-October.

Welcome and congratulations!  Picking the resort was really tough for us as well.  We knew we what we wanted, but it was difficult selecting the resort that would meet our requirements, while taking into account our guests needs as well.  We looked at resorts all over the caribbean, mexico, bahamas, etc., and read a ton of reviews here and on Trip Advisor.  A good travel agent will also be able to hear what the 2 of you are looking for and help narrow down the choices.  In the end, we are really happy with our decision.  The most important thing that we just reminded ourselves was that at the end of the day we will be married... woot.gif

Future MrsO - You need to go with your gut. I am with destinationweddings.com. My TA Christine Kennedy has been amazing at helping me pick out resorts. I was stressed with my first TA because she wasn't helping at all, but when I switched over all the stress went away. I told her what I was looking for and now 3 weeks later my FI and I have made a decision with NOW Larimar in Punta Cana! We are very happy with our decision. Honestly making the resort choice is going to be your hardest part.

 

BTW I just had a friend come back from Jamicia and she told me she wouldn't go there again.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
