HONESTLY which Resort in the Dominican is the BEST all around for a DW?

Thank you for your concern!! I know that we are not really getting a "free" wedding! As mentioned above the judges fees are extra - $560 + an extra$50 for him to walk out on the point to the gazebo!! (no extra charge for a beach wedding!!) And some decorations are included...but barely the basics. But I'm ok with that! It is listed online what is included with the free wedding package as well as the other packages. And I am prepared to pay for an extra few decorations/bouquets/etc if necessary. But that is an option...not a must! My TA is great too & she is coordinating everything with the WC at the resort...asking LOTS of questions & getting all the answers IN WRITING!!
I am a very organized, detail oriented person (FI likes to call it anal!) so I definitely gathering all the information I possibly can! I have been googling and emailing strangers about this resort & it's weddings for over a year!!
And yes, I know that it's cheaper because it's January & Puerta Plata. We planned it that way so that as many family & friends as possible could make it & it wouldn't be such a burden! We also looked at the RIU Macao in PC and we also looked at February but both were too pricy for our liking.
Again, thanks for the concern!

I totally recommend, for anyone who decides on having a destination wedding, if they can afford it, to visit and check out their top resort choices. Just a thought.

I am flying out of Toronto & paying around 1500 taxes/fees included.
My TA is FANTASTIC if you're still looking. She's based out of St. Catharine's & specializes in DWs.
If you're looking for more info let me know. I am in the process of working out the details with the WC at the resort now. Oh...and also, the RIU Bachata offers a free wedding package - just pay for the judges fees!!

Too bad I just realized yesterday that it's Puerto Plata, not Puerta!!! It's on my STDs & invites that I have sent out months ago!! I'm such a dummy!!! But I'm sure no one even noticed (or knew the difference!!) I'll get it right from now on though!!
