I have finally BOOKED my wedding!! I ending up with The Grand Palladium Bavaro Suites Resort & Spa...was able to keep my original deposit with the hotel and just switched the date! Got some pretty good prices from Air Canada Vacations for late Nov and put down the deposit yesterday!! So in one year from now I will be on a beach with all my friends and family!!!
So excited to get back on here and start planning!! I'm sure that there are many more bumps in store, but I think now it will seem easier compared to. Thank you to everyone who responded to this thread and sent me PM's, you helped me keep my sanity!!
