Canadian Newbie!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I just got engaged a few weeks ago and Todd and I have decided upon a destination wedding. After seeing my friends plan local weddings, I wouldn't do it any other way! However, picking a resort could be my downfall! There are soooo many. We're trying to keep costs down so more of our friends can afford to go (most of them are at the kid stage, so money's tight), which severely limits our choices. Probably Cuba or DR. I haven't heard much about Cuba yet (probably because most of you are American! Lol!) but I've read some very good reviews of Punta Cana on other wedding sites. Any suggestions would be very helpful. I've been on some of your websites and they're great! Where can I set one up?

 

Cheers and good luck with your planning!

 

Sandy

Hey Sandy, Congrats and welcome to the forum it's nice to have another Canadian on here...if your trying to keep your costs down I would recommend either Punta Cana such as the Bavaro Princess, my fiance and I stayed there in August (it wasn't luxurious but very nice)...

 

you should also check out Puerto Vallarta, Mexico...we stayed at the Riu Jalisico in May and really enjoyed it (PV has amazing sunsets, great for wedding pics)...both of these places I very reasonable in prices especially if you're going in May that's considered low season for Canadian travellers therefore you will find great prices....we paid $1000 for flight, hotel, transfer from and to the airport and all inclusive food and drinks

 

there are so many other great places, if you need extra help or advice feel free to ask

Sandy, lol no our rooms didn't smell at all..we were on one of the top floors right in the middle of the building it was great. gReat view, nice balcony it was an awesome vacation...I think a lot of people are just too picky and dont know what the tropics smell like... I can post some pics for you if you like of the resort and the room
