      Hey there... The cost of the wedding is going to vary on the different elements you want. Private reception, nice flowers, or a nice cake are going to cost extra.

      It all depends! Sorry for the fague answer! :)

          As said above, it really can vary.

          I am doing a simple ceremony, with a beach buffet reception for about 25 people. The only "extras" we are getting is the Trio for ceremony music and a sound system for the reception. Total for the package is about $3750 including tax and surcharges.

          That of course, does not include my stay.

            it definately varies a lot, if you want to see the actual costs for the Paradisus Palma Real pm me your email address, i can forward you the cost worksheet that lists the different options for reception and ceremony. I would say that i'm having about 32 people and it's costing me around $8000 including tax and tips.

              I also have papers that I can email you from Paradisus Punta Cana. The most important factor is the number of guests attending, and then figuring out what extra or custom elements you want to add to your wedding.

                My wedding was at the paradisus punta cana!!! 24 people including us... We had several extras- we did a private reception, dj, firedancers, upgraded cake & flowers
                Total 5800.00 but our photographer we booked separate- outside the resort. So, thats a separate cost..What is so expensive is the sales tax its 16% on my invoice. So, really it was less than 5800.00 but thats including the ridiciolous tax

                  Hmmm....Let's see the wedding/reception will be about $5,000.00 This includes the entire wedding package (ceremony, flowers, dinner,drinks, cake reception, live music, massages for bride and groom ect) photography, my dress, and his suite. Travel expenses are seperate. About $1,500.00 Per Person (that includes 7 night stay and round-trip airfare)

                      We are getting married at the Riu Palace Punta Cana next May. We are going with the most expensive package which is $2600 - this includes flowers, centerpieces, cake, photographer, hairdo, manicure, pedicure, massages, cake & champagne for the guests (50 or more), reception, flower petals for our flower girl, etc. Pretty much everything you need is included. We are doing a private reception in one of their restaurants with a DJ which is $800 extra. They are creating a 3 tier cake in any colour that I would like and I am bring sea shells for them to decorate the cake with...they are doing all of this for free. So pretty much we are getting our entire wedding for about $3100 and we have about 50 guests right now but we can go up to 100 guests and it will still be the same cost. The resort is also very reasonably priced, it is a 5 1/2 star resort and we will only be paying about $1500 per person.
