1. Cheaper than a lot of destinations
2. Ceremony would be legal w/o a lot of extra requirements like blood tests
3. Referral by a friend who had gotten married at the RIU Negril
4. Lots of direct flights from Atlanta everyday which would make it easy for our guests.
Specifically chose Ocho Rios bc of all the excursions

We chose Huatulco, Mexico because its somewhere that we knew 99% of our guests had never been before (which was important to us since destination weddings are becoming so popular). We have heard nothing but amazing things about the area and we didnt want to do the cancun/Mayan/cabo area of Mexico b/c those are the most popular places in mexico that people get married and we wanted something different.. And going with the dreams resort was a no brainer for us b/c we had been to a wedding at the Dreams Punta Cana resort this past year and it was amazing-the food, the wedding, the resort.. everything!

First, we settled on the DR ... then I started researching the different areas ... and came to decide on Punta Cana.
Since Tom was in Iraq, I narrowed it down to my Top 5 Punta Cana resorts ... based on price, amenities, wedding packages (we wanted a gazebo), activities for different age groups, etc., luxury vs fun (we wanted both) ... and looking at resorts that would be good for the wedding and also resorts that would be good for our honeymoon.
I emailed my top 5 choices to Tom and asked for his input. Without him knowing my Top 2 choices, he picked the exact same two.
So, we went with the more group/family/fun/friendly resort (also more affordable) of the two for the DW -- PARADISUS PUNTA CANA
and the more luxurious resort (and much pricier) for our honeymoon -- PARADISUS PALMA REAL
We could not have been happier with our choices. PPC was absolutely perfect for our group and our wedding, while PPR was the exact sort of luxury and relaxation that we hoped for in a honeymoon.

Plus we wanted it to be like a mini vaca with our guests & we didn't want to spend a fortune on a wedding. We are pretty laidback so it just suited us :-D
