Kailey2015

Hello!

Recommended Posts

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!

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.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
