Need reassurance for just bride/groom wedding

Recommended Posts

I struggled with this forever and initally wanted it to be just me, fi, and our immediate families....because I KNEW that if I invited 1 close friend, I'd have to invite them all...in the end we invited everyone, but my parents are paying and that is why! I couldnt have afforded to do it myself and I think your idea of you and fi in Maui and an AHR is a beautiful idea. You could also have a symbolic ceremony in Maui and go to JOP with your family so they could witness the legal part? just a thought wink.gif best wishes! I've found that if you stick to your gut you're usually the happiest!

my situation is exactly the same.luckily enough neither of our families could afford it so it was,nt an option.however our best 2 friends are coming with us.i did want our own witnesses.don,t ask why one of those things that you worry about.i don,t want strangers on our photos crazy i know.and i wanted to do the night before apart thing and have someone to get ready with.but since we booked it and agreed on there being only us everytime we go out my fi has a few drinks and invites everyone saying more the merrier.but i put my foot down a little and said im really sorry but if our families can not come then i don,t want anyone else to come.


we are having an ahr 2 weeks after we come back and we are making a big deal with that to our families so they feel involved.


if you don,t want an ahr just arrange a family meal?try not to worry you need to do what you and your fi want.

    • 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.
