Quick question, how many days in advance are you girls getting there prior to your actual wedding day? I know we need to be onsite 2 days in advance, but are you all getting there earlier than the two days? Thanks! Ska Ska

We are getting married on a Thursday and arriving the Sunday prior.  We are staying 7 days before we head to Turkes and Caicos.

Could you possibly send me the photos that she sent you?  I am wanting to have a reception on the beach as well and pics would definitely help me make my decision.  Thanks!  I'll try to PM you my email address.

Hi Ska Ska!

 

The amount of time you need to be in the DR before you get married depends on if it's going to be a legal ceremony or a symbolic one. If it's legal, I believe a 3 business day requirement is mandated by the country, but if it's symbolic, then it's really up to you. Even though we did a symbolic ceremony, our WC (Sharron, who is no longer with DPC) suggested 3 business days (so we arrived on a Wednesday), just  to make sure we had eveything squared away prior to the date, which was a Monday, and therefore the weekend was basically a wash for all things "business-related". But I got a couple extra days in paradise, so there was NO complaining from me! :-)

I won't be arriving until November 14th and our wedding on the 19th.  We will have to meet up at the swing up bar and let me know how it went!!  November is coming so quickly...I am getting excited!!!

I am arriving on November 14 (Sun) and getting married November 19th (fri).  If you are having a legal ceremony, I am pretty sure you have to be in the country for 3 business days, weekends, holidays and arrival date apparently do not count.

Our wedding is on Nov 23rd but we're getting there on the 20th, and that's a saturday...we were told by Sharon it's just a thing they say but it's not a requirement.

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
