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!
