Destination Bride - Probably Mayan Riviera/Cancun!

Recommended Posts

Name: Alex

Wedding Date: late Oct./Nov. 2008

Wedding Location: Mexico (most likely)


Hi Everyone!

My name is Alex and I am in the middle of planning my destination wedding. I've been looking at Punta Cana or Puerto Plata - Dominican Republic OR Cancun/Mayan Riviera - Mexico. I am definitely leaning towards the Cancun area. Have some hotels I am looking at, but can't make up my mind (i.e. Dreams, Iberostar, Riu, or Palace).


We would love to be able to do this in late Oct. or Nov. (before Thanksgiving).


What is most important to me is to have beautiful pictures to remember the wedding and being able to have an intimate (small) reception after the wedding ceremony with my close family and friends (about 30-40 people).


Any recommendations/suggestions are welcomed!

Welcome to the forum! We just got back from the Moon Palace in Cancun. The resort photographer did our pics and he did a wonderful job! They are posted somewhere on here if you want to take a look - I seriously coudn't have been happier with the Moon Palace- they did such an awesome job at everything! Let me know if you have any questions!

    • 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.
