    Hello Everyone!

    I stumbled upon this website while searching out information on Destination Weddings.

    We are planning on a November 2008 Wedding, and right now we have our sights set on Punta Cana due to our limited budget, and the realistic prices for guests. We are currently looking at the Gran Bahia Principe, but have not made up our minds. It seems to be more pricey than other hotels in the area...

    Any help or personal experiences on planning a destination wedding for about 50 people on a budget of $1300 - $1400 incl. taxes per person would be helpful (there will be children attending since I want my daughter there!) We are not set on the DR, as we love Mexico as well.

    Thanks!

    Shawna

        Hey Shawna,

        Have you thought about Cuba. I much much much prefer Cuba to DR. I have been to both twice. And, its cheaper than DR, just a thought.
