Been engaged about 6 months now and was planning to get married in May 2016. Due to my being a grad student, planning unfortunately didn't start until September.
The problem is that everytime I fall in love with a place, it seems to fall through. I was set for Coconut Bay in St. Lucia but after getting the group pricing from Westjet (Canadian), the cost actually went UP several hundred dollars and we decided it was too much to ask of our guests. Apparently only Westjet and Air Canada (which is more expensive) actually travel there so sadly, St. Lucia is out.
After another month of searching I came to love Jewel Runaway Bay in Jamaica..however, after getting pricing and even booking my wedding there they subsequently came back to me to tell me they didn't even have enough rooms for me!! (something they knew before giving me my quote but failed to communicate).
Now I feel I'm back at square one again and don't know what to do. I am not interested in Mexico or Cuba but am open to pretty much anywhere else.
I now realize that I am very keen on the idea of having a lazy river or water attraction that is not just designed for kids (e.g., a lazy river with swim-up bar sounds fun!) although it's not essential. I just want a fun atmosphere, not just a resort that only promotes rest and relaxation and I want to keep in under $1900CADpp.....any suggestions?
