Hello,

 

My name is Kailey and I live in Ontario, Canada. I am planning a wedding in Punta Cana for May 2015. My fiancé and I have been together for four and a half years and are ready to start a new chapter in our lives! We both have large families and to stay budget-friendly and keep our wedding intimate and personal (neither of us are the centre of attention type) we thought a destination wedding would suit us perfectly - plus its a vacation at the same time!

 

I look forward to meeting some new people and reading reviews on anything and everything regarding a destination wedding!

Congratulations and welcome! You've definitely come to the right place! Have you chosen a resort yet?

I am thinking either the Majestic Colonial or Majestic Elegance! We are going to visit it this February to make sure it is the place for us!

Awesome! I haven't been to either of those resorts but they were at the top of my DR list. Ultimately we choose Cuba though.

If you're looking for a great Travel Agent in Canada ,the TA I used is amazing! She specializes in Destination Weddings and although shes in NS she books for people all over Canada. I don't know if you have one already or not or even thought about it, but I would highly recommend her. Shes been awesome, always answers my emails and shes good at getting in contact with the resort wedding coordinators. I am fairly certain she's even been to the Majestic resort. Anyhow let me know if you want her name and contact information!

Same here! Cuba is just so much cheaper... although I find from Ontario it depends, but from Halifax, its significantly cheaper to Cuba then DR or Mexico. PLus Cuba has amazing beaches and friendly people!

We got $990 for departing January 13th 2015..can't complain about that! Our photographers are from Halifax still waiting on their quote but I was told it can be any where from $100-300 cheaper, they pay their own way so I am glad these will be cheaper. I would have to agree about the beaches and people!

Wow that's a fantastic deal! We're paying $1178 tax incl. to Iberostar Laguna Azul which is the cheapest my TA has ever seen it she said. We haven't seen it even close to that low since we got our quote. Who are your photographers? I wish I had of known there were photographers in Halifax who pay their own way!

I thought that price was great too! $990 tax include out of Toronto people really can't complain about that!  

 

I am super picky about pictures because that's something that last forever and i love photography so everyone I was picking were $8,000+ and Greg said I was drunk to pay that plus there flight so I looked around and found this husband and wife team(they are currently living in Toronto till February) and they are about $1,100 and they pay their own way there. Plus as a gift for my parents we are giving them an hour photo shoot for $150.

Wow! I wish I had of known that! Their photos are amazing! We hired a private Cuban photographer (he's photos are great too) and we're paying $1100 as well! Had I known of them I would have hired them forsure! That's so cheap! I looked into one here who is amazing but it was going to be about $3000 and that was too much for me.
