I am using an outside photog. Last I heard you just act like they are a guest at your wedding and it's OK. I think we had to make sure they were staying at the RIURM to avoid any issues. Not sure about what happens if they stay somewhere else or need a day pass, etc. I hope to find out more details soon :)

Thanks Josie- That sounds ok probably if they are a family/friend and can pass as a guest, but I would be scared to get caught with an obvious local :) So keep me updated on what you find out. When I emailed the WC for their policy she kind of avoided the question and just gave me the link for Calypso the resort photog.

I totally get that you'd be worried! My photog is an obvious external, considering i'm flying her from chicago & there are actually 2 photogs. but i think as long as they have a room its fine. but you might have to pay for a room for your local!

You can get married on the beach...but the spot is not very private so their are a bunch of onlookers (this is what i've heard, no personal experience). I know you can have a private reception for 1700 dollars, but not 100% sure if you can have it actually on the beach

hope this helps at little :)

If you have any outside vendors, they will have to pay for a day pass, per person. Im not sure what the policy is if they actually stay at The RM RIU.

 

As far as the wedding ceremony, they will give a choice if you prefer on the beach or gazebo.

Hello all! I'm new to this board and I've finally gotten through all 109 pages of this post! I have to say it was one of the most helpful threads on here :)

 

I am not yet engaged, but my boyfriend and I have been dating for 2 and a half years and we've already started discussing what we'd like for a wedding. Both of us fell in love with Playa earlier this year when we stayed at the RPRM and we decided that we would love to get married there! So I'm just here to get as much info as possible before we start planning.

 

Thank you to everyone who has already shared their stories! I can't wait to hear the rest of yours and to add my own as well!

 

-Lorie

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
