Trying to choose a new Resort
Posted 06 January 2009 - 02:35 PM
My FI and I had chosen to get married at Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa for Jan 2010. No we hadn't firmed a date yet or booked anything because the prices are not out yet, but we knew Dreams was where we wanted to get married and Jan was the month. We sent out save the date kind of things... With no specific date but that our wedding will take place in Jan 2010 at Dreams. This fine and good. Everyone received their STD's and they looked great. We were happy and excited to start getting some firm prices very soon.
Then a friend's daughter of my FI's family was in a wedding at Dreams and gave us a review and said it was horrible. Now we are choosing a new place because friends my FI parents wont come to our wedding if we have it at Dreams..
Now its back to the drawing board...grrrr..
Its so hard to choose a place to get married...
I am freaking out a little...because its hard to plan anything if you don't know where you are getting married!!!!
I know lots of time to decide right??
But I am the kind of person who is very organizedâ€¦ I like to plan things out so I know what to aspect.
Anyway thatâ€™s just me venting..

The good thing is that as you said, there is still enough time. Have you looked into Paradisus resorts? Majestic resorts? I've heard good and decent reviews from the Dreams... I went a few years ago to a weeding at the Gran Bahia Principe, nice resort.

We got married at Ocean Blue/ Ocean Sands (through Air Transat), and it was AMAZING. Not one problem at all, and we were there for two weeks! BUT someone else from here got married there and didn't have the most positive experience. It wasn't BAD, but could have been better (according to her expectations), KWIM?
Anyway, is there a reason why this couple's input is so important it makes you want to change your whole plan just for these 2 people?
BTW, I'm just up the way from you in Brockville!!

But regardless, there are many fantastic resorts in Punta Cana. We LOVED Paradisus Punta Cana and are planning an anniversary trip for next year b/c so many of our guests want to go back!

We aren't changing because my FI parents friends wont come if we got o Dreams.
The girl that gave the review was planing on getting married at Dreams as well... and I am sure she hoped it would be great. I have a read a lot fo great reviews about Dreams as well..But now I am just scared!!
