    Hi, my name is Tara and I'm new to this great site! We're still in the early stages of planning and picking a destination. So far we're thinking the Dominican Republic in late 08 or early 09.

    For those of you getting married in the DR, I'd love to hear about it!

        Hey Tara, welcome. Glad to see another Minneapolis girl here. I'm going to be moving there in the next year or so.

        Glad to help in any way I can.

          Hi Tara!!

          Congratulations!! I'm in the beginning stages, too, so I can relate! The DR is supposed to b GORGEOUS. Do you ever go on TripAdvisor.com ?? They have some great recommendations on there as far as resorts, etc. And you can do a search on there, like 'Dominican Republic Wedding' and they'll search the site and give you a bunch of info on any postings with that in it, and you may get some good ideas. Just a thought. Welcome!

            I've researched the DR more than I'd like to admit!! But when it comes down to picking a resort for such an important day... man it's tough! Especially since we've never been. Good thing is that we still have time!

              Have you thought about doing a site visit? I know I was having a really hard time deciding on a resort as well, and when I went to Cabo, the very second I stepped onto the grounds of the Sheraton I knew it was the right place.

              But with that said, I've found that almost every resort I went to was great, so you really can't go wrong, it really just boils down to the "feel" of the place.

                I have to agree with Tammy...while a lot of people are comfortable with "winging" it, I think site visits really help. And it sounds like you have some time with a late '08-'09 wedding date in mind. My FI and I were vacationing at Dreams Cancun (before we were engaged) and saw a wedding while we were there. We loved everything about the resort, and knew that's where we wanted to get married. I feel so much more comfortable knowing first hand what a great place it is. So after some initial research, if you have the opportunity, I'd say definitely do a site visit...and get a vacation out of it as well!

                  Welcome! I hope all of your planning goes smoothly. Personally, I'm looking at the Gran Bahia in Riviera Maya, but I know they have on in DR as well and it's supposed to be very nice.
                  Good luck!
