HELP! Trying to Elope in Punta Cana ...

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I want to elope - really elope just the 2 of us - in Punta Cana this summer. My problem is finding a wedding package at any resort that has what we need without paying for a bunch of extra stuff we don't.

 

Here's all that we want:

  • Beach location
  • Officiant
  • Marriage license & certificate
  • Witnesses (since we won't have anyone with us)
  • Bridal bouquet
  • Boutonniere
  • Photographs on CD

Does anyone know of a resort or wedding planning service that offers something like that at a reasonable price?

 

Any help would be very much appreciated!!

I just got done setting my date with a resort in Punta Cana for April of next year! We are going with Paradisus Punta Cana. I really like the romance "specialists" they have to help you get everything figured out. We are doing a beach wedding as well, but are going to have around 20 guests. From what I have read though, they can do a very private, intimate ceremony for you as well. Google it and see what you think! Best wishes!!

Well, everyone on here is probably going to recommend their own resort. LOL.

 

I am doing mine at Dreams Punta Cana.. everything you want is included at no charge if you stay for 7 nights in a honeymoon category suite except for the pictures. Take a look at them as well.

My favorite resort is Punta Cana Princess... It's adults only so you can enjoy your romantic wedding and honeymoon without having other people's kids running around disturbing you :)

 

Check it out.

Dreams is where we are going, because of cost, and the basic package is free for 7nights or more if you book the honeymoon suite or higher. Just remember you need to be in DR for so long prior to the wedding and they need your translated paper work ahead of time also.

i would definitely say dreams too... of course that IS where i'm getting married, so i think shannon was right!

 

if it is just you guys and you don't need to worry about guests with a rehearsal dinner or reception or anything like that, the biggest thing you'll have to worry about is probably just the paperwork translation and all of that legal mumbo jumbo. besides that, i really don't think you can go wrong in PC! good luck and keep us posted on your planning!!

 

ps: eden&kevin... we're getting married just 5 days after you in PC! not the same resort, but still the closest date i've seen to ours so far! april 2010 can't come soon enough!!

Hi eloping 789,

 

My fiancee and I are in a similar situation, we want to run off and get married just the two of us to Punta Cana, possibly next May 2010. Can I ask how you got in touch with Melia Caribe, as I have tried and I haven't yet received a response?

All the other packages I have seen include more stuff than we need, so we are trying to see if there are any resort wedding packages that cater to "elopements" or just for the bride and groom? We both really love Paradisus Palma Real!

First, let me say Congratulations!! Of all the resorts I contacted Melia responded the quickest and they are extremely helpful. My WC is Laura Kreutz. I think she has Mondays and Tuesdays off, but here is her direct email address and phone number as well as another WC who contacted me several times before I was assigned to Laura:

Laura Kreutz: asistente.bodas.melia.caribe@meliacaribetropical.c om,
+ 809 - 221 1290 ext- 6372

Angelica Albuerme, angelicaa@meliacaribetropical.com

If you are interested in package details, I posted the entire Wedding Package pamphlet in this thread that provides all of the pricing, options, etc. for 2009: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t36563. If you don't have enough points to download it, send me a PM with your email address and I'll send it to you. They may change it for 2010, but it'll give you a ballpark.

Good Luck and let me know if I can help with anything else!!
