    I've booked and am planning my wedding for the last week of August, 2011. Was wondering if there are any other brides getting married down there around this time?

     

    Also, are there any past brides that were married at this time. Was it a busy week? Did you get lots of rain? Did you have to hide out from a tropical storm or hurricane? Would love to hear your stories specific to this time of year!

      Congrats on your wedding!

       

      I haven't been to DR in August (I went in November once and the weather was perfect then although it sprinkled at least a little bit everyday, but before your knew it the sun was out again) but I go to Cuba all the time and they share similar weather. The one time we went in August.. it was unbearably hot!! Like, shower at least twice a day and too hot to suntan type weather. If we were outside, it had to be in the shade and it was counting the seconds til we could be in AC. We were there for 2 weeks that time and in the two weeks, we were hit with Hurricane Ike and Gustavo. The good thing is though that the hurricanes only last for 1-2 days. The rest of the days were perfect and sunny again. We heard that the people in the resorts weren't allowed to leave the hotel those days. If there is a hurricane coming, you'll be able to see it in the weather forecast a bit ahead of time so if one is coming on your wedding day, you could probably just reschedule it to one of the other days that week.

       

      I think everything should be fine! Good luck!

        I also haven't been to DR in August, but been to Jamaica, Cuba and Mexico at that time.  August is a bit more busy than other summer months as a lot of european tourists come, and these days same applies for Canadian and US tourists.  The prices now for AI are very much comprable to renting a cottage,  but it's still not even close to what it is between Dec and April.  We found during our travels that end of May and June, then Sept to end of Oct tends to be the slowest times....

          I am getting married August 27th.  We are praying for good weather.  Heat would be fine as long as there are no hurricanes!!!  I've been to several other islands around this time and have to agree X-Chan.  It is very hott!!!
