Newbie From Calgary


Recommended Posts

Hi Fellow Brides!


Just wanted to introduce myself as I'm sure I'll be posting on threads asking questions soon.  My name is Dawn and I live in Calgary, AB.  My DW (see?  I've already done some reading to catch the lingo wink.gif) will be in February 2013 and we're leaning towards having it in Punta Cana.  I've been looking at maybe having it at the Gran Bahia Principe - we stayed at that resort in the Mayan and loved it.

FI's name is Keith and we've actually been together for almost 13 years.  He finally proposed to me in NYC last month on a champagne twilight yacht tour on the Hudson.  It was definitely a night I'll never forget.

Anyway, I look forward to chatting with you and hearing about your ideas.

Welcome!!  Congrats on your engagement, sounds like it was perfect!  We are getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe in Jamaica, and like you we fell in love with the resorts after staying at the one in the Mayan.  Good luck with your planning!

Congratulations Canadian Dawn and Welcome to the Forum!


There are great TA's on this website to help you with all your planning needs as well. You will love all the support you get from fellow brides, they are awesome! Punta Cana has many great all inclusive options. Definitely go with a hotel that can facilitate your wedding vision as well, all of the hotels are different and have different offerings!


Happy Planning!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
