    Out of curiosity, Samantha, where are you from if you do not mind me asking? We are 2 hours outside Calgary too, and went with a local travel agent here, but really I should have thought to look in Calgary, since that is where most of us are flying out of. 

     

    Hey,

     

      My finance and I are living in Hanna.  So funny story, I had clicked on your link to your wedding website as I'm in the process of making ours.  I was looking through to get some ideas and came across your family/ wedding party page.  I actually curl with your parents!  Talked to them about it last night when we were at mixed curling.  Small world!!

    I will tell you that 2 of my 3 best friends have already gotten married and did the traditional thing here in Calgary, I told each of them that they should have destination weddings and both of them expressed guilt... then after it was all said and done the crazy amount of stress and planning for one day they both said they should have listened to me! And now that I am planning my destination wedding, they both keep jumping in trying to help me get everything sorted out and they cannot believe that I am pertty much done and so laid back, I mean there are still 8 months but i am pretty laid back about it!

     

    We have always wanted to get married on the beach and told everyone that it would be happening, the people we thought would be there arent coming and the people that were on the fence are it is strange.

    Yeah, I should be thinking of the money and the headaches that I'm saving haha. My fiance 100% sure he did not want to get married here. I didn't really care either way so we're going with what he wants. I'm certainly happy that we went this way. Just thinking about planning a wedding here gives me a headache and stresses me out. I just have to remind myself, those who want to and can come will be there and for those that won't, we'll always see them when we get back. We're planning on having a small party when we get back anyways because our house will be brand new and we'll be moving in together for the first time :)

      Hey everyone!

       

      I'm a recently engaged Sask bride, looking into a wedding in the Playa Del Carmen area. So far these forums have been a huge help :)

        I'm wondering if anyone is getting or has been married at the Beach Palace Cancun. We're thinking of having a May wedding but before I even go down there to look at hotels I want to know how much my guests would be expected to pay for their trip. I don't want to have my wedding where only a few people can afford it.  I'm from Calgary, any brides who were able to keep their guests' trip costs at $1500 or under? Where did you go and what month did you get married? 

        Hi tinker, I'm from Calgary And I'm getting married at Beach Palace on May 15. My guests paid $1704 for direct weather flights hotel And transfers. What is your budget for your gueats? If you have Any questions at all let me know... I think I'm am expert now! Lol Happy Planning!

            Hi Ladies,

             

            I haven't been on in a long time. I might be selling by wedding dress if anyone is interested. Just wanted to give the Canadian girls a heads up first.I purchased for $1200 + tax -- **please PM me an offer if interested**. Size 10 in bridal but I had the hip and under my arms taken out 1 inch for more movement. If you live in GTA, I can drive to your house so you can try it on. :) Here are a couple of pics of front and back.

            Thanks! So far that's close to the price I've found for May. I really like beach palace, so I might push the envelope there a little bit haha. I was hoping to keep it under $1500 but by the time I get married I think I'll be the only student among my guests haha, they can afford it. I'm also looking at Gran Caribe Real, which is a little bit cheaper for the guests but they don't give you as many perks. Did you book through a travel agent?

            That's a very nice dress! I'm not a huge fan of ruffles, but your dress looks really nice, or at least you make it look nice :)
