Any other 2013 Brides??

Recommended Posts

Price depends on location where you are from. I am not sure about from Ontario. For me (Alberta), Mexico most places is slightly cheaper than Dominican, but it really depends.

Some brides have pricing for the time you are looking at. Mine isn;t until July, so I have to wait a bit longer.

And WELCOME!!!!

I actually got engaged a few months ago, but wasn't able to dedicate my time to planning/etc. until now. I just went to a wedding show this past weekend, and can tell you that it absolutely justified my decision to have a destination wedding! I know I will load myself up with DIY stuff, and certain things with the destination wedding as well....but could not even imagine how consumed my life would be if I had to plan a wedding here at home (Kingston, Ontario).

 

We have decided on late March/early April 2013. We are flexible on date as we want to choose a time that is most affordable for our guests. We are thinking Dominican, as it seems more affordable than Mexico...not sure if this is right? I'm considering Dreams La Romana, and Gran Bahia Principe La Romana...Dreams seems to be more money than the Gran....we will see. I did however, fall in love with Dreams, and there is soooo much info on this site from fellow Dreams brides....

 

Does anyone already have pricing/dates booked for 2013? I am just starting to contact travel agents etc, and hope I can find one that can get me pricing ASAP. I am starting to seriously feel stressed now that we have made the decision to do this, that I can't get pricing anywhere....I know I have a year and two months....but still! lol.

 

Congrats to all of my fellow 2013 ladies!

 

Alicia

Hi Ladies

 

I am a Feb 2013 bride and wait feels like forever!!! We are planning on going to the Barcelo Resort in Riviera Maya Mexico. I am nervous though because I have never been there but I know people that have and they say great thing especially about the palace which is where we are planning to go. I am so thankful that I found this site, it has give  some great ideas and even some great advice already!! Some of my friends think that I am crazy for already starting my planning and working on my DIY stuff, but I figure that by starting now I can fix any mistakes with the DIY and not feel to rushed with the designing which I love.

Oh, it is not that far in the future, don't worry! I started doing DIY stuff right after our engagement, 2 years before our wedding... and 6 months have passed already! You are not alone! Have fun and enjoy it!

Thank you so much for the website information! I already made mine and I love it, it has been a helpful tool with my guests as well. We have narrowed our search down to Hard Rock and Majestic Colonial. (Dreams locations were out after many things I did not like).  I will let you know what we choose. We will be meeting with out travel agent in a few weeks to go over both places and then we will get going on the contracts. Getting excited for January 2013! Now I just have to start with the DIY things....sigh...this year is going to fly by I have a feeling. ;-)

In the end I choose Majectic Colonial because it has really high rating on tripadvisor.com one of my fave traveling sites. The Majestics pricing was and set up made more sense to us. Plus I wanted an all-inclusive. I am working with a TA with Wright and she just got me the actual costs for the rooms and its a little bit more than dreams but not enough difference for me to reconsider. For the website I did weddingwire.com super easy and easy to personalize.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
