    I just got back from my wedding that took place on the 4th and had a semi private reception and it worked out great and got the best of both worlds. I extended the cocktail hour from 5:30 till 8 :30 on the beach - at the cocktail hour I had Horsdoerves that were plenty and fantastic - open rum bar, trio band, PA system, cigar roller and tropical huppa decorations and a firedancer - then we all headed to the air conditioned restuarant which worked out perfect, we were able to take our PA system there to the restaurant and the cake was set up - - - - and with the extra money I saved from doing it this way =I was able to take my guests out the following day on the Private Boat - Snorkeling food and music sunset cruise (Best Lobster Dinner through the Whole Trip!!). It was absolutely amazing!!!!! I strongly suggest doing this if you can. I will be writing my review soon - just need to settle in since I just got home yesterday.

      I'm Dominican too. Let me say your mother is right and those talking here in the forum as well. Resort is for all king of people.
      Some talk about Paradisus HERE do you can fine some pictures in Gaby beach restaurant in there.
      Welcome to forum here do you can fine people with experience...nothing better for some one seeking.
      Have nice planning time.

        Make sure you check out the rest of the threads in this section. There are tons of pics and info about different resorts. I think Jellyfish would be the PERFECT option since you have family in the DR who might not be staying at the resort. That would be your most cost-effective option. YOu can get married on the beach by Jellyfish as well.

        We were married in the gazebo at Paradisus Punta Cana and although some beach-goers did watch our ceremony, we have none in our pictures and the gazebo overlooks the beach but is a bit more private than a true beach wedding.

          That is a great idea!! How many guests did you have at your wedding? Which resort did you get married at?

            My fiance and I are getting married in June of 2009. We have only ever been to Mexico and know that is not where we want to get married. We will be having about 50 guests at our wedding. We have pretty much narrowed the resorts down to 3. THey are Majestic, Dreams, and Iberostar. Can anyone give me information on any of these resorts to help us pick one?

              Hello Everyone

              I'll be marrying my wonderful guy on March 14, 2009 at the Gran Bahia Principe in Punta Cana.

              Has anyone had a private reception there? What was it like? How far in advance did you book the restaurant, does the dancing happen right there? Are the dj's good?

              I have sooo many questions. Any advice/feedback would be awesome!!!
