Weddings in the Dominican
Posted 06 July 2009 - 01:54 PM
I guess I am asking is, should the Domincan be a contender for a lovely but more affordable wedding island?

I didn't compare prices with other places in the Caribbean ... but I have heard that Punta Cana, or the DR in general, is a good deal for the $$$ for Canadian brides b/c of flight prices.

I LOVED my DR wedding, and there was nothing 'cheaper' about it, and the island no more or less unsavory about any other I've been to.
That being said, when we were down there, we had met an English quartet that had travelled extensively and said that the resorts offered from England were not as top notch as some they had been to on other islands. They said the resorts offered in Puerto Plata weren't as nice as the ones in Punta Cana.
*shrug* Hope that helps!

When I say cheaper, I didn't mean it in a rude manner I promise . All I want is a beautiful beach so I can say I do and have it relatively affordable for as many of our friends and family to be there are possible.
Debs, I think that is an issue in the UK, the Dominican hasn't had best reviews from the UK for a while. Maybe due to resorts, I don't know.

Maybe UK people prefer to be around more British/European tourists to make things feel slightly more "familiar"?? Know what I'm saying? Like Cultural differences maybe? I don't know. Just a thought. LOL
I don't think you'd be disappointed with PC. Like other posters said, it has the best beaches!!
http://www.michaelsteingard.comMichael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs
