We have not decided yet, we will find out this Saturday, Thank goodness!. I am super excited to just pick a place already. Finding a place seems to be the most stressful! Only because the last travel agents we have seen keep coming back with prices $1,500 and up not including taxes and I really wanted to keep it around $1,200 with tax.

Ohh so exciting! Which resorts are you looking at if you don't mind me asking! You should definitely be able to find one in Cuba for under 1300$. We got ours for under 1200$ including taxes! and we are going to Iberostar Laguna Azul in May!

I went to the Iberostar Laguna Azule last August, beautiful hotel!

 

At this point I am fairly easy going as long as it's a hotel that is kept up well/not  run down and I would really like a 5 star hotel as hotels are a little differnt in Cuba but I really like the the Melia Las Dunas hotel my parents went there and loved it! and I think its beautiful but its a little far for any kind of day trips and my FI loves RIU hotels (right next to yours)

Yeah I looked at the Melia Las Dunas... They seem to do an amazing job with weddings and I would have liked to have it there, but we decided its just too far removed from anything else. A lot of our guests haven't been to Cuba before so I wanted to be close to Havana. The Playa Pesquero in Holguin is also a great resort for weddings! We were there two years ago and just loved it! Were thinking of going there, but eventually decided Varadero was where we wanted to go... My FI hasn't been to Varadero and we wanted to Havana. I am sure which ever one you choose will be amazing! We have a Cuba thread.. it says its for Iberostar Laguna Azul brides but we really have all brides from Cuba lol cause there aren't many of us if you're looking for a Cuba thread!

    • 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!
