There is also Wal-Mart and Sam's Club.

Oh, and in regards to your question about private events if there is full capacity at resort...there is always the ballroom and receptions on the beach.
Thanks so much... I'll plan on persuading the driver to stop on the way from the airport!

Has anyone gotten a response from Landy regarding this option?
Is it possible to get a sound system wired to the hut, so that we may play music during our dinner? and what about lighting? is there lighting in the hut? or will that need to wired to the hut as wellhuh.gif
I think you'll have to wait for an answer from Landy or Lizette on this one. This seems to be a new option, and an unofficial one since it's not in the wedding guide. Probably just some bride asked for it as a special request and now there will be tons of brides copying the idea (like my gazebo set-up and aisle flowers!). Hopefully they get back to you soon with more information about this.

When Seahagamy asked (see post Post 82 of this thread, all she was told was that this is an option for the silver or gold dinner, which sounds like it's free as long as you have silver or gold (would be worth confirming the "free" part). She is trying to find out what the charge would be for this option with the free package since that's what she's using. You can see in the picture that the hut is sufficient lit so they obviously have something in place (either wired lighting or just lanterns) but as for the music, it's such a small space that you wouldn't need an entire sound system, I agree with rachelannmartin that a laptop or ipod dock (which they supply in the rooms, just bring your own batteries) would work best.

Hopefully somebody finds out more info about this option soon.

neen, you're too generous! We'll figure it out. I just get panicked about things everyonce in awhile. Our reception in going to be at El Patio. I'm sure it will all come together! Do you know if we're the only people getting married on the 17th? I should book our cocktail hour if there is another wedding!

That's at the "El Patio" Restaurant. It is considered private and you can have a DJ at this site. Just remember the reception can go no longer than 10:30pm.

Sunbride-you are the all knowing one when it comes to the weddings at DT-can you have your reception at El Patio outside with a DJ? I assumed that you couldnt unless you had El Patio for a private function and close it for other guests

I know you directed your question to Sunbride, but since I know the answer...
if you want a DJ at El Patio (or SG), you have to pay the $750 private event fee...then you have the whole place to yourself so your DJ can't disturb other diners

    • 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!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
