happyfamily- I have read great things about the TAs from this website.  I am using a wedding planner/TA based (Ophellia McNight, with Bridal Affair Destination) in Canada who specialises in Jamaican destination weddings. If you would like her contact info let me know. So far she has been great.  She is taking care of both wedding planning and the TA services for us so there is a fee, but I am not sure what her fee would be for just the travel and accomodation aspect. Another great thing about her is that she is in Jamaica often during the high season and is very up to date on all the current information.

 

Jackie44- It's hard not to get wrapped up in everything wedding eh? How is your planning coming along so far?

 

Thank you for the Information, I really appreciate it cheesy.gif

It is amazing how quickly time passes. Our wedding date is set at the resort. We're just waiting for the 2013 wedding packages to come out officially so we can decide and plan. We were told that the packages wont come out until Aug... more waiting. I have looked at the previous years, so I definitely have an idea of what's in store. My FI wanted to take a separate trip down to the resort prior to the wedding so we can scope out the place and pre-plan, but I was like, 'naaah we'll just meet with the WC when we arrive and take a couple hours to pick everything out'. After reading through lots of forums on this site, I have complete faith in the WC and their capabilities...

Welcome Sarah!  Congratulations!!!!!!!!!  Such an exciting time in your life. cheers.gif

 

 I am also planning for April 2013.  We are getting married at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya in Playa del Carmen.  How did it go with your TA meeting?  I found a fabulous TA here on the BDW site.  Her name is Wendy Hicks and I love her to pieces!!!!  Look forward to hearing about your planning.  We are all here to help and feel free to bounce things off of us!!!

We are thinking Jamaica or Mexico.  I have my 1st meeting with a TA tomorrow through Skype and I'm hoping that she has some good recommendations to fit what we are looking for as there are way too many resorts for me to pick.  I had looked into a vacation in Cancun before and really liked Dreams so that is definitely one resort I would like to check out.  Super excited to be planning...even if it is just for a small party. I have always wanted a destination wedding but for a few weeks after we were engaged I had looked into venues here locally but after looking at all there is to do I just felt so overwhelmed and knew that I needed to go back to our 1st choice of a destination wedding.  I am honestly not sure that we will have anyone to want to spend the  money to go but not to sound mean I'd rather it be the 2 of us away than 100 people here.  So much to figure out and also what are important questions that I need to ask my TA when I talk to her?  Thanks and I look forward to chatting with you all over the next year!

Congrats happyfamily & welcome to BDW!!!  Happy to have you here.  I went with Wright Travel who is actually affiliated with this website.  My TA is Wendy Hicks- A++++.

Hi All!  First post here!  I love seeing all the support the BDW community offers along with the fabulous resources!  I too am a May 2013 bride! Unfortunately, the Grand Palladium Resort doesn't have their 2013 wedding packages out yet so we are unable to nail down a date.  I seriously CANNOT wait till that date is confirmed so we can finally move forward as I'm already hearing family/friends telling us that they're getting other wedding invites on the same weekend already.  EEK!

 

I agree with TauruSmith with starting a new May 2013 planning thread.  It'd be extremely helpful! 

 

I'd also like to congratulate everyone on their engagement/weddings!  It's amazing to have a support system who is also in the same boat in planning a destination wedding especially since none of our immediate friends can offer advice nor have the experience.  

 

Thanks in advance!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
