    Hi all I'm a newbie here, so excited to get my planning started. We have our hearts set on late May 2014. We're from England but would really love to get married in Mexico, ideally the Beach Palace. Any tips and pointers welcome Congratulations to you all X

      Congrats! When's your date?

      Yay some more April 2014 brides. I thought I was crazy for planning this early. I am not happy though. I am such a worry wart but also impatient so we have sent save the dates out but we can't seem to get rates until possibly March. i don't like that. I mean since it is a wedding can't they just make up the rates for us so our people can start booking? For this reason alone I am thinking about switching properties but is that being to hasty?

      Yup, we know it'll be April 12, 2014 in Punta Cana and have picked the resort....Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe. I hear the white sand in Cancun is gorgeous. I'm shooting for getting STDs out a year in advance too, and plan to get a TA very soon! I haven't been to many islands or resorts so I'm no good for giving recommendations except to say that if you do it in Punta Cana make sure the resort's on Bavaro Beach. Happy planning!

        I feel so disappointed I thought I was on a roll with getting started on planning my July 2014 wedding at the Gran Caribe/Royal and then I got a quote for the rooms. The prices are so expensive and I refuse to haven guests pay $2-3,000 for flight and hotel. Now I feel like I'm back in square one and I have to find another resort that's more budget friendly. :(

            Lori,

             

            Have you tried contact TA Wendy?  She can give you some group rates.

            Yes, she's who I'm working with.. She's great.. But the rates aren't so great.

              July 2014 vow renewal bride here!!! I have been planning for over a year now. I first planned on a cruise wedding, then it was thought that to make our guests take a whole week off of work, plus the cost of the cruise plus everything they would need to spend there would be too much to ask sooooo, we have changed to an all inclusive wedding staying a few days extra for ourselves. Now to find the right place. I found one I loved then saw that many guests have had stomach problems there. Ugh. I have no idea what I am doing now. Some of the AI resorts are very expensive.
