Dreams Punta Cana Brides

Are all your guests staying a full week?
Hey, how long are you guys staying at the hotel for?? Is anyone staying extra days after everyone else leaves?
We were thinking about it but we have already booked to come home with everyone else. Plus, for our real honeymoon, I want to go to Europe in the spring or summer..

There's a really nice vibe in this thread and tonnes of information. Make sure you check regularly though...blink and there will be mountains of threads to go through! How did you find Dominican Republic as a destination? Is it a place you would revisit on your own (i.e. even if it wasn't your sister's wedding)? I am having a hard time selling my FI on it. He is nervous about the beaches being not that great.
You can rest assured! The beaches in Punta Cana are AMAZING! Though I don't know for sure about DPC, as it's more north than Ocean Blue was. But aside from the obvious abject poverty you see on the trip in from the Airport, the Dominican is absolutely beautiful!
We did the stingray excursion and it was amazing. We are thinking of doing the Saona trip this time around, and hopefully we'll be able to travel to the capital to visit our World Vision boy that we sponsored (as a wedding gift to each other and to give back to the country we got married!).
We would for sure have gone back without SIL's wedding, and we have to admit we did a lot of convincing to get her to have her wedding there (they were going to go to Jamaica)

We want to have our honeymoon in 2011 in Aruba, which was our first pick for a DW.
I am really anxious to see how the contract will look for the free night group promotion. Nat where are you ? I know you said you have the same deal lol.....

Things seem to be progressing well for everyone, and I'm happy to hear it! I haven't had a chance yet to look into excursions, but my fiance works for a travel agency, so I'm hoping he has all the info!
Welcome, Debs! You are from Brockville? I'm originally from the big town of Gananoque, and my wedding date is April 12, one day before your SIL's! We will be there at the same time! Small world! :0)
We found our bridesmaids dresses on the weekend, now it's just a matter of convincing all the girls that they are worth the $238 + tax. I let my MOH choose the dress, and I think it'll be flattering on everyone, plus it's EASILY wearable again. The cheapest one we looked at was $198, it's craziness!

Our deal is offered through our travel company, Sunwing. What our deal has, is every 12th person gets a free trip. So that means room and airfare. But the "free trip" does not include tax, so thats about $300 from Canada, and it would not include our choice to upgrade to a honeymoon suite. It is a free basic room + airfare. So basically Ben and I pay only for our honeymoon suite upgrade + the taxes.... does that make more sense?
Its freeing up some money, which we definitely will not complain about! We are staying at DPC for 2 weeks for about $1300 bucks... sweeeeet LOL
