What Country is best?

Recommended Posts

So I have known that I have always wanted a beach wedding and luckily my fiance agrees :)

So he proposed this weekend and now we are trying to decide what country.

Our good friends are getting married in Mexico this fall so that country is out.

We would like somewhere that has affordable flights from CO, KY, and Philly...I know I am making this hard...lol

Kids will be invited and we were thinking all inclusive since quite a few people will be using this as a vacation and that will be better for everyone.

So if anyone has any suggestions on countries and hotels I would greatly appreciate the help!

Probably April of 2010?

Thanks and happy wedding planning,

Welcome to the forum. This is a great place for you to get opinions from other brides. You have a lot of research ahead of you. Picking your resort is probably the hardest part. Good Luck!

Hi Laura! For info on the cheapest flights, you may want to contact one of our forum Travel Agents. They would be able to help you best choose a destination with inexpensive flights. As for which hotel to choose, it will depend a lot on your preferences and budget. We have several different sections for the most popular destinations (Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Cruise Weddings), so feel free to browse or use the search feature to read up on specifics.

Congratulations Laura and welcome to the forum! I know it's hard to choose a location with so many great countries and cities to select from. Have you traveled to any beach towns with your fiance before you got engaged? If so, that could be a great place to start. As Sapphire723 said, there are many different locations detailed throughout this forum such as Jamaica, Hawaii, Turks and Caicos, Bahamas, etc. Also, remember, Mexico is a huge country so you could choose a spot that's very different from your friend's wedding.


It can be challenging to select a location but it can also be a lot of fun as well. Happy planning!

    • 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.
