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!
