Hey Bride and Grooms to be!

 

Just wondering if anyone would like to meet up in Vancouver, BC to discuss each others wedding plans and maybe swap our awesome ideas, because I know we all have very creative thoughts/ideas on how we want our special day to be!!

    Hi

     

    I'm getting married at Dreams, La Romana, DR on Oct 29 and live in Richmond. When and where is your wedding? I'd love to meet up with some DW brides for coffee!

    I actually don't have a date yet, at this point I'm considering April 2014.  I would love to get married Nov 2013 but its end of hurricane season and I really don't want to take a chance of my wedding week being rained out.  Is is fairly more expensive to marry in oct??  which travel agent did you go through? Im going through FlightCenter in North Van as that location specializes in destination weddings.

      We are going for early Nov at the shoulder season after the peak of hurricane season. Prices jump like crazy in mid November and December and we really wanted to keep it under $2,000 cost per guest (not possible to do after Nov ~15).  There is more of a weather risk in Oct/Nov compared to Dec Jan and the spring, but we decided for us it was worth it to have everyone we wanted able to afford it. I am sure the descision is different for each person ofcourse.

       

      We are working with Tara Thorp based in Vancouver for our travel and wedding planning (http://forevertruewd.com/about/). She is actually coming with us to the wedding and she is the one dealing with the resort planner at Dreams. We go through Tara , but she works with a travel agent company in Vancouver Destination Wedding Travel (http://destinationweddingtravel.ca/). 

       

      Good luck planning!

      That's awesome! Yea I definetly would like the price to be affordable for all my guests as well, its such a hard decision!!  I think I've finally decided on Punta Cana, DR and I'm now deciding between Oceans Blue & Sand or Magestic Elegance!  It's exciting looking at all the resorts, but definetly stress full knowing they are hugeee decisions!!!

       

      I've already began looking into items for welcome bags as well as little decorations here and there I'd like to bring!!

       

      Good luck planning as well!!

        Hi

         

        We looked at Magestic Elegance in PC too-it was one of our top faves in PC :) In my mind ANY resort in the tropics will be so much fun and amazing, so although it is very important, don't stress too much. It will be fun no matter where it's at.
