Cheaper to elope last minute or book ahead?

Recommended Posts

We got engaged December 5th, sent out an invite December 30th and are getting married in Jamaica April 20th and got a great price still....and there are 32 people so far! You just may be taking a chance that a specific day or time might not be available. You have to decide if you're comfortable with the fact that some people can't afford to come and what's important for you. We always knew we wanted to go away to get married and whoever could join us was a bonus, it's ultimately about the two of you I guess!

Wow you guys have moved very quickly, good job! Were you looking into your options before you got engaged? I have done sooo much research already and still am not even close to making a decision about where and when to have it. I think FI and I have become more excited now that we're talking about just the two of us going, so I think that's the right decision. Although I want to keep it a secret and now I feel kind of bad everytime someone asks if we have progressed with the planning and I just keep saying we still haven't decided...has anyone else dealt with that? Any suggestions on how to keep it a secret until we return?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
