Newbie - destination wedding question

Recommended Posts

hi all, my name is monica and we're getting married in may in oahu. we're super excited and can't believe the wedding is only 3 months away now!


for those of you who is planning or who has planned a destination wedding, did you host any activities for your guests pre or post the wedding? we'll have families and friends coming from places as far as europe, the middle east and south east asia so we really want to make this event special for everyone. we want to be able to thank our guests and make sure everyone has a good time and has the opportunity to meet and mingle before the wedding.


we really want to be able to host something but this wedding is really going beyond what we'd expected to spend initially so we're in a budget crunch. any suggestions for fun activities that we can do without breaking the bank? also, if anyone has a recommendation for hula dancer and fire dance that is reasonable price, i'm all ears! :-)


any thoughts/feedback/comments would be hugely appreciated!!

Having some things planed could be good, but maybe just give them a list of things they can do. That way you can still do your wedding stuff and they can enjoy a vacation with a wedding :)

I think that's a great idea for your guests. I know a lot of girls on here plan welcome dinner or cocktails parties for the first night when everyone gets there. Or maybe even a brunch the last day before everyone leaves. It'll be wonderful whatever you decide. welcome3.gif to the forum and CONGRATS!!!wink.gif

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
