Newb here!

Recommended Posts



I joined the site because it was recommended by someone on another forum & have already found so much information!


My name is Magda & I will be marrying Edgar next year in San Juan, PR.

I've noticed there are SJ brides here & would love to hear about your weddings.


I'm currently still looking for a venue for our wedding/reception. We were going to have a cruise wedding but the hour & a half reception didn't sit well with us, we want more time to have fun with everyone so after everything was booked & paid for, I'm searching again.


Front Runners are now:

The Gallery Inn

Caribe Hilton


If anyone know of any other place, I would love to know about it.


Anyway, hope to gather lots of info here while having fun!

Welcome to the forum Magda! Yes I'm sure we have some fellow San Juan brides... I recall looking at someones photos recently but I just did a search and couldn't find them. Hmm?


Happy planning!

Congrats and welcome, Magda!


Have you considered having your wedding on the island of Vieques? It's right off the coast of PR. It's much less developed than PR. The W hotel has bought out the Martineau Bay Resort on the island of Vieques, and is spending millions to refurbish it. It will be reopening in April of '09. There are also other places on Vieques that you might want to check out such as villas that can be rented out for your wedding ceremony and reception.


Hope this helps.


Best wishes,

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Wowoo...all dresses are looking awesome but I suggest you first one because it’s backside design is very attractive.
    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
