Hi guys! how is everyones planning coming along??
@pykx82 I know what you mean I have been waiting a while for prices from TAs as well. And I'm horrible at planning and have nothing planned yet lol except that we want to get married jan 2016 in the Riviera maya. I first talked to a TA here in Winnipeg and got no where, then contacted Laurie Lee that was suggested by a lot of users here and I've been emailing her since end of December with the resorts I'm interested in and she has been pretty good but I still haven't gotten any quotes from here and she never called me back?! which I thought was great as so many have recommended her.... SO now last week I have contacted Isabel Muchado at Algonquin Travel here in Winnipeg as @Smellsey recommended and so far she has been great and she was hoping to get quotes for me today!
Its been a frustrating start forsure as I feel like I have been going around in circles talking to travel agents and looking at resorts for the past 3 months and have no date set or venue... but as everyone says on here that it always works out so I am staying positive.
Did you girls go to the wedding show? I was supposed to go but something came up in the family so I missed it.
@pykx82 I am actually going to a wedding this feb in peurto Vallarta, were staying at the Now Amber and her wedding is at las caletas which I have been to before and it is amazing. The you will love the dreams or riu resorts for sure and I heard that the beach is so much nicer up there then closer to downtown pv. Were hoping to check out dreams vm while we are there since you can dine there for free while staying at the Now, so I will let you know that goes. But if you haven't looked into wedding at Las Caletas you should!
@calgarybride2015 woohoo and congrats in advance on your wedding !
@jackiet2016 just saw this post, excited you are going to the barcelo, we went there 2 years ago, it was amazing, love the resort and the best beach I have seen in mexico! We looked into weddings here as well, but I just really wanted to go somewhere I haven't been before. However I think it is still an option for us. What locations did you choose?
I don't have any suggestions about wording, haven't thought that far ahead yet, but my friends that had DW in the past just put up a quick message on a facebook event they made to quickly get across the booking details and everyone was cool with that. So that is probably what I will do and then add to refer to the wedding website for more details, and then send out invites whenever you like there are no rules and people appreciate the more notice the better I think.
