Any other 2014 brides here getting an early start?

Recommended Posts

Update for all my 2014 brides:

 

I have officially booked and put a deposit down for Paradisus Punta Cana June 29th-July 5th 2014!! There are such good rates right now that I wanted to lock it in early! I can price match in the future too if the rates become better down the road!

 

Now I have to rush to get STD's created and sent out because my guests only have 80 days to put down their deposits!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

There was just something about the lushness of the PPC resort that left an impression on my FI and I. I also loved their wedding packages and locations. This is the website http://www.paradisus-puntacana.com/ if you want to check it out!

 

P.S.

After reading bad reviews, I shopped around other resorts but never felt that same way as I did with PPC. I learned that ALL resorts come with bad reviews which is something you just have to accept and not let get in the way of your choice! Choose the resort which makes you most excited about having your wedding at!! That's my advice :)

Choosing a venue I'd like choosing the dress, it almost chooses you. I tried to get past my venue but it was the one.

Jenn,

Thanks for the website info.  I requested information.  I had looked into that resort before.  I want a resort that has activities for all ages. I had liked the vibe of Hard Rock, but found the resort to be very large.  I do want to narrow down my choices to three resorts by the end of this year. I have so many ideas dancing in my head, but can't execute any of them until I find a location.

 

Thanks,

Sharon

Hi all,

First off let me say this is an AWESOME website!  I have been lurking for a few months and finally signed up.  I am planning to get married Feb 2014 in Montego Bay, tentatively at Iberostar Rose Hall Suites because I love the whole idea of 1 wedding a day. I'm open to the idea of off-resort weddings too though, so we are still deciding. Anyway, this is a very exciting time and I can't wait to share the planning with all the wonderful people on bdw.com!

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

Hey Yossimeyer,

 

I love Playacar Palace, since its any all inclusive and has beautiful grounds, kids friendly with great prices, turquoise water and white sandy beach, plus its in walking distance to the famous 5th avenue.

 

Feel free to ask me anything and I will be happy to help.

 

Happy Planning.

Joyce

I officially sent my invites out...eek!! I'm definitely NOT doing things the "typical" way as I'm still over a year and a half from the big day!! But I had to get them out ASAP so my guests can book their trip before the January 2013 deadline! Anyone else send their invites out this early? I feel like I need the reassurance that I'm not the only one here who is throwing all rules out the window?! lol

o Jenn It's not just you mine are going out any day now, I'm almost don't and I am just under 15 months away. I have caught a bit of flack for opting to sent the officials out so early but I want my guests to have time to budget and plan. Plus by the time the traditional timeline suggests the final payment would already be past do. You are not alone:-) Cherina

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
