Hi everyone,

I was planning on getting married in September but have heard that it is hurricane season in DR during sept and october. anyone have any suggestions on when to go? how is novmebers weather? does a particular month tend to be more expensive than others?

 

also-- i have read that it can get pretty cool in the DR during november/december. does anyone have any information on this?

 

also-- i know that aruba is very windy and it would be hard to get married right by the water without getting "blown away".. i have never been to DR, therefore any information is greatly appreciated. thank you so much!!!!

If you go to Welcome to Weather Underground : Weather Underground and click on "history data" in the menu at the top you can find out what the weather has usually been like on your wedding day in the previous years.. So say if your wedding was to be on September 1st, 2010 the site can tell you if there has been any hurricanes/thunderstorms etc on sept 1st, 2009 and earlier... It also gives you the temperature by the hour, which I found helpful as I tried to pick a ceremony time where it wasn't super hot and there was little chance of rain..

 

Sorry for rambling! Hope this helps :)

Well what I can tell you is its all luck and you can't plan it..I was in Mexico 2 yrs ago in Oct and it was hurricane season, and the 2 weeks prior to our arrival was downpoars straight..and the week that we left was also rain..but the week that we were there was amazing and not a day of rain..I have been in two weddings in December..and you're from NY so you know how our winters can be and both were like in the 60's i even remember being outside without a jacket.

But in regards to cheaper months I found out (unfortunately after we booked our date) that the cheapest is the summer starting from may and the 1st 2 weeks of december..but then you can run the risk of flight delays because of snow we might have at home..so basically pick the date you feel best with and pray to the weather gods for the best lol

oh and by the way..I had never been to the DR before this summer, we went because everyone was telling us its the cheapest for all inclusives and i want it to be cheapest for guests but yet find a beautiful place, i first wanted aruba but its really expensive.

So we went down for a week a month ago to just check out a few hotels..punta cana was 1000 times nicer then what i thought it would be and i have been to almost every island, beaches are beautiful and the people were so friendly..its really nice..i saw a bunch of hotels and ended up booking the one we did on the spot when we were there because i just loved it so much..but if there are any you are considering message me and i can give you my opinion if its one that I had checked out..not that it means much lol but its still an opinion :)

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
