Punta Cana Weddings: Definitely Worth a Look

Recommended Posts

source: www.goarticles.com



If white pristine beaches and picturesque sunsets is your definition of romance then perhaps consider having your dream wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.


There are so many dimensions to planning a wedding with many details and stressful decisions to be made. Some couples may welcome the traditional methods to wedding planning however; more and more couples have decided to veer away from the more conventional wedding ceremonies and have decided to include the sun, sand and Island hospitality as a means to starting a new chapter in their lives as husband and wife.


For many decades several resorts in Punta Cana have helped couples plan and customize their dream wedding. Ask to consult with their wedding event planner. They will be glad to contribute their expertise towards making your wedding day as memorable and romantic as can be. Most resorts will offer a free wedding service if the future bride and groom book a one week stay at their resort, however the couple will be responsible for the cost of their wedding license.


Clearly there are many advantages to having a Caribbean, paradise wedding. For starters there is the obvious; the location. Secondly, couples can begin their life together without the enormous debt most weddings leave behind. There is less planning involved. You're almost guaranteed a beautiful day with a breath taking sunset to end the night. You're able to share this event with the people that really matter in your lives (not your Aunt Ethel who you've never met before!) and lastly, you've already arrived at your Honeymoon destination.


Although getting married in Punta Cana may not involve as much planning as a conventional wedding, it is important to inform yourself of what may not be included in your wedding package. There may be some added fees such as; notary fee, private dinner reception (without the other hotel guests crashing your party!), and a photographer to capture every memorable moment and the beauty Punta Cana provides.

Yet keep in mind, if you're someone who's needs to be in control at all times and you live by your watch; a Caribbean wedding is not for you. Island time is not for everyone. Locals tend to move at a much slower, relaxed pace than the rest of the world. So be prepared for some possible delays such as the judge showing-up late or a two o'clock wedding being postponed to four o'clock. Remember to remind yourselves that you're in one of the most beautiful beach destinations in the world. Sit back relax, what will be will be, or better yet have another Pina Colada!

Great article.


I am a newbie and trying to figure out where to have my wedding. I am crazy but I am trying to plan it for August 2011. Just got engaged and the only thing I know is that we want a destination wedding.

I originally wasn't sold on DR but the more I look at the different resort options the more I think it is the place for us!  Hopefully booking for October 2012 soon!

I agree Punta Cana is definitely a great destination! In June 2011 Travel Impressions and Melia Hotels International sponsored 17 travel agents for a 5 day visit to Punta Cana. It was a great trip and we all had a wonderful time and I have attached a few pictures from my trip. Punta Cana has something for everyone. Whether you're looking for family friendly resorts, adults only, luxury or adventure Punta Cana has it all! We went ziplining through the beautiful Punta Cana hillsides, relaxed on the white sand beaches, experienced first class spas, dined in amazing restaurants and had an opportunity to tour 8 properties! It was a busy week and I can't wait to go back. There is so much more to see!

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
