SMALL wedding...

Recommended Posts

Hey there!

I'm having a small group too - 10 guests, and I'm pretty excited about our day. What we're having is our ceremony on the beach, and then dinner, toasting, and cake on the beach with our guests. It's going to be small, intimate, and awesome!! For such a small group, I saw no reason to hire a band, dj, or have any sort of dance, but the resort is providing a cd player and we're bringing a bunch of music from home. After the ceremony we have 4 hours of bar service on the beach, and once we're done eating and drinking there, we're going to stroll the malecon (Puerto Vallarta) and see what kind of fun we can find!!

I do actually have a big fancy gown, but I don't care - I'm not changing!! It's going to be a great time!

Good luck!

This might be crazy but if there is another bride on here with the same date maybe they are in the same boat. If it is just hanging out and dancing why not rent out the disco together?

Thats actually what I wanted to do. But my resort doesnt allow me to do it. I say go for it, your guests will have fun either way!

We are also having a small wedding @ the ROR. We have 23 guests total so I really didn't think that it was worth having a reception aside from a dinner that evening. We have a rather large reception planned at home a few weeks after we return, so our guests can just enjoy their time while it lasts in jamaica.

We are having 40 people but we are doing an AHR. After dinner and

cake cutting we are just having our ipod and keeping the bar open. My friends and family will be perfectly happy with this. You don't have to have a traditional reception.

We are having a small wedding with only 7 people. 3 are kids. I am so glad to hear that Im not in the small wedding boat alone. I hear you on getting every chance to wear your dress. Our wedding is at 11 March 13 08 at ROR. I think I may wear my dress all day!!! I think it will be a nice relaxing day becuase I won't feel like I have to entertain 30 or more people. Although I would LOVE all my family and freinds to be there.

Hello Beachbride82,...the sunset cruise sounds like a great idea for the reception. I have been looking into that but have not really found anything...the margaritaville cruis which make a stop to go shopping, etc...any cruises that you know of that will jusy sail into the sunset and then we can all party on the boat. It would be even better if it was a smaller boat that can accomadate just my wedding party....any ideas,... Who did you book with for your reception cruise??

    • 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!
