I'm a June 2016 bride! We are getting married in Cuba and already placed our deposits and put out our invitations so that everyone can put their own deposits down and take full advantage of the payment plan ^.^

 

We went through a travel agent and they were fantastic and got us a great with for 1132 (tax incl), with every 11th free and all the air transat bells and whistles for the bride/groom. I'm really happy and feel like i can relax ^.^. I'll be spreading out costs and slowly buying everything over the next year :)

Awesome price. What city do you fly from? Also what area of Cuba and resort? I love Cuba. We got engaged there.

Wow you scored with that price!!! Awesome.

We went to Varadero and stayed at the Melia Las Antilles. It was an adult only.

Hello 27dresses

 

I am also a 2016 bride to be. I have already booked my hotel, which is The Royal Playa  del Carmen. My date date is July 2, 2016. Too early to start booking the hotel, so I have to wait for that. I am in the process of shopping for wedding dresses now. I have started buying little nick nacks for my OOT bags. Things like bubbles, bells, etc.... I plan to have 20 friends and family attend, so I should not be out a bunch. My only other issue I am having is should I hire a DJ. most likely I will not,  I plan to spend majority on pics.

2016 bride here as well (April) I bought my dress last month.  Have the resort picked out and wedding date reserved. Sent the save the dates....will send invitations probably in the next 2 months to give people info and get people to start saving. Although DW are less work, it's still just as stressful!!

@KatieMcBride I don't totally agree that DW are less work, but I did think so before I started planning mine - there's definitely a stigma attached to a DW that it's just 'easier'. In fact, sometimes I think it may have been easier to have a wedding at home just because I find it sometimes hard to coordinate from so far away! It get's better once you get all of the important stuff out of the way (vendors).

Agreed!  It's not any easier at all.  I told someone that I was having a destination wedding and the lady replied, "oh you are eloping" and I was so surprised to see the stigma attached to Destination Weddings. 

 

Just sending out invitations and save the dates.  Just getting people to book their deposits seems like soooo much work.  At home weddings do not require you to plan out a week of activities for your guests or OOTD bags. 

 

I'm tired just writing this.  lol

@veryvalentine haha!! eloping. No.. we're just having a wedding just like anyone else, except on a beautiful beach! Just as much planning involved.. if not more because of all of the email communications. I swear to you.. my inbox is a complete disaster of emails. My brain is a mess and it takes my brain so long to settle down at night so that I can fall asleep and stop thinking about the wedding! lol

Omg, I know what you mean.  I keep having dream I'm going to forget my dress.  Or that they changed the date of our wedding to today and in my dream I'm like freaking out to get everything done. 

 

I have also had to practice a lot of patience.  A lot of my questions are so easy and simple and yet require the patience of a saint because the WC (and I totally get why they take time to respond, I know they are busy) but the WC sometimes takes 1 week or more to reply to a simple question like, can the flower girl throw flower petals on the ground?

 

ahhh,
