      I am getting married in San Jose del Cabo, but did a lot of research on Punta Cana before deciding. It looks gorgeous there, and I here it has some of the best beaches in the Carribbean. Congratulations! Where did you plan to be married before?

        Hi there I was originally supposed to be getting married in Punta Cana but found that they work 2 slow there and it was hard to get alot of information on weddings. I've been to punta cana many times and have seen a lot of the resorts so if you need any advice please ask.

        I was orginally looking at the Majestic Colonial (which I have a contact for at that resort if you need it) and the Paradisus Palma Real. But changed my plans and now Im getting married in Los Cabos at dreams resort.

        Good Luck with all the planning and if you need any help ask away

          Thanks!
          When are you both getting married? Well we were to get married all the way in India although I have never been there.. was supposed to be in a palace in the middle of a lake, but alas it did not work out and have to start from scratch and fast! Your help would be so much appreciated thank you!!!!

          Here are the resorts we have narrowed down to and are waiting on group quotes.. what do you think??

          Riu Palace Macao
          Riu Palace Punta Cana
          Gran Bahia Principe
          Bavaro Princess
          Melia Caribe
          Sunscape the Beach
          Majestic Colonial
          Iberostar Punta Cana

          The majestic it seems I have heard that it is an amazing place but not as great for weddings?

          We are having a Hindu Indian wedding so will bring our own priest, and won't need a judge either as we will do that from Toronto. So it makes it so much easier to get a time!
          Let me know what you guys think!
          Thanks again :)

          be a little careful about colonial majestic (read post below in DR forum)...i like sunscape and heard great things about them...and bavaro princess but honesly palma real is my #1 for weddings there.

            Hi again, Im also from Toronto:) Ie actually stayed at the Sunscape Beach 2 years ago and stayed at the Bavaro Princess 1 month ago so I can comment on both places. Sunscape I went to when it first opened so the service wasn't 2 great but Im sur its better now. The resort overall is beautiful and has an amazing beach.

            The bavaro princess is a HUGE!!! resort it has a natural rainforest on the property but were talking like 96 acers. The restaurants we went to were great but the hotel overall I found to be just average.

            I wouldn't reccommend the Bahia for weddings its more of a party place, also a very big resort. But I guess depends what your looking for.

            Riu properties I find to be beautiful, have stayed in the DR and Jamaica and Bahamas (but dont stay at the one in bahamas, its old lol) I walked by the Riu Palace Punta Cana, its a brand new resort it looks beautiful but can't comment on the facilities there.

            My fav were the Majestic and Palma real their more luxurious and low key but also more expensive. HOpe this helps a bit:)

                It was actually a very difficult time for me with booking, the biggest stress ever!!! Im from Toronto my FI is from Calgary so to find places that flights leaving from T.O and Cal the same days was so hard.... So Cabo worked out for us. I booked through selloffvacations.com I usually book my vactions with flightcenter but this time they weren't 2 helpful. i also went to thomas cook travel and they never even got back to me.

                I have approx. 20 people going and found selloff had the best prices...give redtag a try their also pretty good
