    Hi girls. We are planning on getting married in spring of 2014. We were thinking February either in Dominican or Cuba. All of the travel agents are telling us different things. One travel agent said I should narrow it down to 3 resorts in each different location and she would contact the resorts in order to get a price. Another travel agent from a different agency said to wait until the prices come out for the resorts in order to compare prices and find something within our budget. I always thought I would have the resort booked a year in advance and I see alot of brides have been booking that early. Have you been contacting the resorts yourself and dealing with them without a travel agent? Any info on your experiences booking your resorts and how far in advance would be greatly appreciated. Hope to hear from you. Thanks.

      It almost sounds as if they are being a but lazy. My agent priced, compared and brought several (at least 10) destinations to me in deatail and it was 18 months in advance. Also she didn't ask me to bring her resorts I told her what I wanted and she found it. Offering pros and cons. I would look elsewhere, try the BDW travel agents I hear they are amazing!

        I agree, they sound like they are being extremely lazy. If you decide to go with Dominican Republic, I can tell you that it is extremely beautiful and very affordable. Go on tripadvisor some time and look at some of the resorts. They are amazing. (Look at places from both locations)

            I went dress shopping today, wow I managed to try on 5 dresses today (crossed out 3 dresses that I thought it looks good, but it is not me). Unfortunately they didn't allow to take pics, but the sales assistant was nice enough to let me taking pictures at the end with one of them, the one I like the most, and I LOVE this dress, however I don't think it's "the one" yet. It is Demetrios 1443. What do you think of the dress? Please ignore my hair and the bra at the back, I'm in diet to loose few kgs.

              It is very pretty, beautiful ! For me it would depend on the style and feel of the wedding. You look beautiful in it.

                I am also getting married in 2014. I am leaning towards April, but am hesitant to book my date yet because the travel agents are unable to quote me exact prices yet. Anyone else have this problem? I am thinking Now Jade in Riviera Cancun. They are telling me that the airline prices wont come out till about May.... How do you book without knowing how much its gonna cost for your guests to stay!??

                  I feel the same, I want to set a date but the travel agents can't give me and pricing ! I want to keep in most cost efficient for my guests.... I'm afraid if I pick a certain month , it will be too expensive .
