    Hi!  Just a heads up:  My TA told me not to do Hard Rock because it is just too big for a wedding.  But, I am sure you will pick the BEST place for you and your group!  Happy planning!

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. ;-)

        Congrats! I am thinking of pushing my wedding from March to April - we haven't planned anything yet, but TA's I've initially talked to have suggested that by bumping it a few weeks into April, we would save a significant amount per person.

         

        Have you gotten full pricing and booked your trips yet?

          I know this was not directed at me, but that kind of makes sense. Prices are always higher in winter and cooler weather, since more people travel then to escape the snow and ice. I think - but am not sure - that March is right on the edge of that. So April would be lovely; you get the nice weather, but smaller crowds and therefore lower prices.

            Thanks Peach! I really wanted to stick to March since it is colder here, but spring break is out due to high prices, and the last week of March/very first of April is out due to Easter ( TA advised it's not a good time to travel to Dominican). So - pushing it out to the week starting April 6th looks like our best bet. I think early April will still be a nice escape from the cooler weather here, and for the people who go for a few weeks - they can come home to spring :)

             

            I think my guests will be happy with the hot weather down there, smaller crownds, and better pricing!

                Hello everyone, I am hoping to be a June 2013 bride. We just got engaged over the holidays and we r very excited to start planning. I'm looking at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe in Punta Cana, DR. This website has been very helpful and hopefully anyone with info can share.

                  Thank you for the info. I was wondering if the Hard Rock would be too big, I mean they have 15 freaking pools...LOL. I am meeting with my TA next week to discuss the different places and choose one. Then I will go from there. I want to get it booked ASAP! :-)

                  I am so ready to start everything.

                      Hi Courtney!

                       

                      I too, think I will be an April 2013 bride! I'm curious to know, were you able to get pricing for your guests this far in advance? I'm so excited to start planning, but I'm afraid to pick a date for April 2013 until I know pricing/flight schedules for the hotels I'm looking at....oh the joy of planning a DW! Wasn't this supposed to be easier? lol
