      What photographer are you using?.. My FI and I are trying to decide on one for our ME May 2013 wedding.

              Hi everyone!  I am looking at Dream Palm Beach for March 9, 2013 for my wedding.  I've been engaged for all of a  week  and have decided to let it all set in this week and then get back on the planning to see if I still feel the same way about Dreams.  In the meantime...if there are other DPB brides out there who have information and PRICING, if you can share or tell me what you've found that would be GREAT!!!  I got an email yesterday from them to send back a date so I want to see what you ladies advise before I do that.

               

              I am really pretty open for a date.  I picked March 9th because I am in Education and it would roll right into Spring Break.  The deciding factor between March and either June or July will be prices. I  know islands have PEAK and OFF PEAK - Which of these months are cheaper in airfare/accommodations?

                My vote is against Spring Break.  Traveling during this time is chaotic.  There is more chances of luggage being lost/resorts being overbooked (this has happened to me twice) ... and crowded beaches.  It is usually really expensive to travel during this time as well. 

                 

                I'm also in Education and it makes it real tough.  Any chance your board will let you take a week off unpaid?  I know people who have done this before.  It obviously depends on your financial situation, but maybe you can find room in your budget.  It will be nicer for guests to go away at a time other than school holidays.  Just something for you to consider :)  CONGRATULATIONS and welcome to the forum.  A great website to be a part of!

                  Hi! And welcome!

                  As for the dates, I am a teacher, and so I would have a similar schedule to yours.

                  We have decided on July. Some people think we are nuts for going off season, but we have travelled off season before... it is a significant price drop than on season, and quieter, and I get built in time off... It was really a no brainer to us, even though others still are not so sure!

                  Anyway, research your location. Some places get quite hot in July, some are the rainy months... but we have always had good luck, and it is totally worth it in our world.

                  Just our perspective!

                    Good luck! 2013 is just around the corner!

                     

                    Dreams la Romana is beautifullll, I've looked into that place as well, but ended up choosing to save our money and do it in Mexico instead..

                      I finally got a quote from our travel agent! It looks good, but is only good until the end of this month (nice timing, right?) so we need to move now if we are going to go ahead with this booking. I think we are, if she answers our questions and everything!

                       

                      I am so excited! Finally!
