Beach Reception to Windy or Hot? Help!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi - I am having my wedding at the Paradisus Punta Cana on July 4th and am driving myself and my WC crazy I m sure :). I have never been to the resort so location has become an issue for me to decide. The beach reception looks lovely but at the same time I dont want my guests sitting in the wind. I heard it is very windy, so maybe ceremony and coktail hour on the beach and then to a restaurant.

 

Has anyone seen the Gabi bar and would they suggest that setting for a reception with a DJ? I am also thinking about the Marino since it has the Ocean View. Any suggestions? Please Help!!!!!

I got married in Punta Cana in August and I had my reception on the beach and it was perfect. We hardly had any wind on our trip, except for hurricain Dean, lol. The beach feels a little cooler(not much though) then away from the beach. I say go for it and have the beach reception there will be no prettier backdrop:)

pinkie.gifGood to hear that you didnt have too much wind- that is what I was concerned about also - But I figured a little was ok =- I mean it is mother nature- it will not be still and air conditioned, but just like a beach around here once the sun goes down I am sure that it is mostly comfortable. elefant.gif

Rzurla... DR isn't really windy, not like the beaches here.

It will be fine, I think :)

We're prob doing a beach reception too.

My cousin got married in DR and did this and it was perfecto! :)

I didn't get married in the DR but wanted to comment anyways. My beach wedding was both hot and windy, but the combination is what made the weather bearable. If we had gotten married elsewhere on teh resort where there was no wind, we would have been way too hot, but on the beach we were fine!

Our beach reception at PPC was perfect. Not too windy at all and the temperature was great. it was initally set for 5pm, but our WC suggested that morning that we move it to 6:30 b/c of the heat. We did and it was no problem. We all just hung out in the gabi Beach Bar until it was time for sunset pics and the reception to start.

 

I think the beach reception made it for our guests. having it in a restaurant takes away from a DW IMHO.

OK so I am curious because I was researching and it says that the mosquitios carry malaria on DR- did this sway anyones reason to have a beach reception at night after the sun goes down? Did anyone feel like there were a lot of mosquitos out?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
