        It's always hard to know where to start!

        First I would look into the dates that would work best for you, your budget and for your guests. Then I would start looking into the many resort options and what type of wedding package you are looking for.

        A big question to ask yourself right away is if you want to have a legal ceremony in the DR or a symbolic ceremony. The legal ceremony will require more planning due to translation, and the resorts securing a judge on the day that you would like.

        That should get your started, and just looking around here on BDW should give you a ton of information and don't be afraid to ask questions if you are confused about anything.
        Thanks for the advice. I must have did some things way out of order. I contacted a TA before deciding on a date or even guest list! As for budget, I really don't have one either, but know we don't want to spend more than we have to and I'm going for a free symbolic wedding. So much to think about!!

                I was a Wpg bride ......but that was 40 yrs ago!!! Now we live in Cabarete on the north shore of the DR, and run a small condo resort next to the beach. It's a gorgeous venue for destination weddings.....welcome to the forum and best of luck with everything!

                  Hey KPEG!!!

                  We are Winnipeg as well!!...although we are not quite engaged yet...we are planing for a destination wedding Feb 2011...lol, we are thinking of Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe or the Majestic Elegance, we went to Sell Of Vacations, south st. vital, and spoke with Melissa, she advised if we have a min of 10 people we can get a group rate, and once we come to Jan/Feb 2010 she an check on group rates, as they will not become available until that time for Feb 2011.

                  Have you thought of any resorts yet, or a date?

                  Congrats by the way!!!
