Recommended Posts

First I must say thanks to the lovely ladies who made my destination wedding possible. Without your inspiration this would not be possible. I'm sorry it took so long but my son is not giving me a chance to do anything on the computer..

When I first thought about this destination wedding I had no idea what to do and who to contact, I’m not even sure how I found this site but the Lord knows best and he led me to this lovely site of beautiful ladies who were so willing to share information.

After eliminating Jamaica from my list, because I would have too much family and friends to invite I set my heart to Dominican republic. I do not speak Spanish but it seem beautiful and the ladies here seem the world of it.


My save the date: My friend at work and I made it at vista prints.


Invitation: I loved the idea of the passport but the boarding pass seem easier and was just as nice. I did love one a boardites made but was not able to use her template since it was save into a different program.


Rings: I did not bother to get an engagement ring since we did not get one from the time he had asked me. So we went to Ultra Diamond. My ring was $1600. On sale his was $300.00 @80% off the say. We will be getting new ones for him in 5yrs.


Dress: I had not have an inspiration for the dress all I know I was going to Filenes running of the bride to get my dress. The ticket said $8000.00 I got it for $499.00. We got there about 2am and there was only 6 people inline. I went with five other helpers, we got so much dress to try on it was crazy, but FUN FUN FUN.


Suit: We got the DH suit at Ramanie’s in the Manchester mall $149.00. All the men’s pants came from there also $49.00.. IF you are getting married in the summer do not worry about finding linen. There was so much all over I had panic when I went out and could not find any in March by July there was so much at the stores.


Ladies Dress: These came from My lady in Hartford. Only $69.00

Men’s Shirt: Island importer


Bags: got those at oriental trading. At first they seem too little but the size was just right.


Shoe: His sandals came from Aldo

My shoe came from DSW


Jewelry: I found luck in TJ max. I was so lucky to find this starfish set.. LOOOVE IT!!


Favors: I got favors from pricewise. I got favors for our bachelorette party also could not help myself.


I use the cake from the hotel. My rum cake from the USA could not withstand the heat.


Hair: I just wanted a up do with a birdcage veil. Bought birdcage veil @ Davids bridals $24.00


I'm unable to upload pics so here we go..(my pics are saves in the wrong file)

    • 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. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
