joana,

welcome to the forum, my name is ana and my FI is Dave.

 

One of the reasons that we wanted a destination wedding was becuase of our budget, however, keep in mind that not everyone will be able to attend because it is expensive for people to get out there.

 

We are having two weddings now, lol. Our destination wedding is for our closest friends, hardly any family [more for people our age, who want and can afford to take a vacation, not my aunts nd uncles who have 3 college tutitions and 'real' 9-5 to tend to, lol]

 

our other wedding will be taking place in my parents backyard, very simple, then a reception at a nearby resturant.

 

before you decided or put deposits on anything, decide what is most convientant for you and your fiance, then go from there.

 

ana <3

let me know if you need anything

welcome! We were a Cabo wedding on a budget too. How many people are you thinking of inviting? Have you thought about all-inclusive or not? Just curious, we're here to help!

Hello!! You will love it here! I completely understand how you feel - I have been on here since January and we still haven't finalized a site/date...but this site absolutely directed me toward the sort of resort we want...and all the "seasoned" members out there will answer all of your questions willingly! It's the best place to get honest feedback :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
