My fiance and I decided to ditch our country wedding vision for the ease and warmth of a destination wedding, probably in November 2009. I might have been a little naive with the 'ease' part - there's SO many resorts and choices. I THINK Punta Cana may be a good choice for the amount of all inclusives, the great beach and some good low-priced options.


I get overwhelmed by the various wedding packages, and wondering if there's a resort that offers a package best for a larger group (i.e. w/out tacking on $85/pp for a reception in an a la carte). We will probably have about 40 people at least.


I look forward to being part of the community!

Hi and welcome to the forum! I just want to advise

that things take longer than you might think. So for

a Nov 2009 destination wedding I would start solidifying

things very soon. With all the great info on here you should

be up and running in no time!

I feel your pain, I remember when my hubby and I thought "oh is should be so much easier planning a DW" well I quickly learned that wasn't the case, you have a totally different type of stress. BUT the good thing is that you found this forum, and it was a life savor for me, as I assume it will be for you as well. Good luck and congrats on your upcoming wedding.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
