    Hi everyone,

    My Fi and I are planning our wedding for next summer in Punta Cana, I can't decide on a resort, we have been looking at Majestic , Edenh and PPR, I like all three is just that PPR is a little more pricey and might be a bit of a prob for many of the guests flying from many parts of US. I feel this is why i worry more and i would like to know if this is something i should really be worrying about? I really like this resort. Also can anyone that has been working with any of these resorts spare some great helpful info or pics...

    Thank you guys..

    Ana n Alex

    I'm very excited.. :)

        I ended up chosing a resort that was more expensive than what I had originally set out to pay. At the end of the day I really loved the Majestic Elegance and I knew the people close and dear to me would pay more. You may end up having a few less people if you chose a place more expensive but always remember it's YOUR wedding. You will remember this day for the rest of your life so go with what makes you happy!

        I considered the PPR but it was really too expensive from my city, it's a gorgeous hotel!

          ana i would focus on who you really want there like your parents and siblings. Do you know if they could afford the PPR? when i chose the PPR i knew a lot of our guests would not be able to afford to go but the people we really wanted there would go.

            I had my wedding at the Paradisus Punta Cana and it was absolutely beautiful its a little bit cheaper than the PPR but just as nice. If you choose this resort you will be very thankful that you spent the extra couple of dollars because the others really dont compare.

              I can only speak to PPC and PPR, but we loved both. HOWEVER ... when we go back, we will return to PPC ... because it was more FUN! It's definitely not as luxurious as PPR, unless you stay in the Reserve, but that's a trolley ride to the beach area. We LOVED the nightlife options at PPC and were disappointed with the lack of nightlife/activities at PPR -- but it also really all depends on what you are looking for.

                I have tons of weddings at the Majestic next year and did one there earlier this year. It's a wonderful resort, very beautiful and the people are great to work with. The bride I was with said they were great to work with as well.

                  We chose Dreams punta cana because of the family friendliness as we have children going. My travel agent recommended the majestic colonial first off before she knew I had done some homework. The price was the other choice for us. But if we ever go back I would like to stay at the Majestic or the excellce.

                    You need to remember that it is your wedding and everyone isn't going to make it no mater what resort and what the cost is. You need to decide what is more important to you, the location and setting of your wedding, the place you really want, or the number of guests you have. If you let people you really want there know the approximate price, they still have a lot of time to save to go.

                      I stayed at Ocean Blue and it really was a dream come true. Everything from the grounds to the people to the day was absolutely perfect!
