Brampton/Toronto Bride here. We are having a hard time deciding what country and what resort to go with.
We have been to Oasis Cancun in Mexico and Sandals in Antigua which we loved both.
We haven't been to Jamaica or the Dominican but have heard they are great for weddings.
Anyone have any advice on choosing an actual country?
Try to narrow down what matters to you most - cost, ambiance, nightlife, excursions, beach, food, etc.
We chose Cancun because we love the beaches there and because we wanted people to feel like they could go off resort easily. We like how there is nightlife nearby (big for us) and excursions/tours for people to do. We looked into Punta Cana as well, and while we liked the actual resorts and wedding venues, we felt like it had less to offer for guess. Resorts were cheaper there, but we felt like Mexico would offer a better time overall. We also ruled out Jamaica purely because I didn't like the look of the resorts there (haha) - that's what I mean by narrowing down what you want!
Your TA can also give you suggestions if you tell them what you're looking for.
Good luck and happy planning!
