DR in late August?

Recommended Posts

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!!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
