Hello ladies!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!!


Love this forum! Getting married April 2010 most likely in Punta Cana! At this point choosing between a couple of resorts: mainly Oceans, Majestic Colonial and Bahia Principe. All have very different price ranges!


My FI and I are both law schools and all of our friends are still in school also. Anyone in the same situation and wondering what is the max amount we can ask of our friends for this trip? It seems that to get something great we always end up in the 1700's $.


Thanks Ladies!smile03.gif

Congratulations! I am in the same position with being in school, we are getting married the month after I finish my degree...so I can understand the worry about pricing. I would say 1700 is reasonable to ask friends and family to spend if you give them sufficient time to save. Good luck on all the planning! :)

Congrats and welcome to the forum. I'm getting married in Mexico and our price for our guests is just over $1700 so I think its reasonable. The way I looked at it and from the opinions of some of my guests I spoke to, most preferred to pay a few hundred more and not have to worry about the service not being to their standard. But everyone's different - so remember that you will NEVER please everyone. Good luck and 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.
