Does anyone happen to know all of the requirements? Especially for a catholic ceremony in Panama?  I'm totally confused on the process!

Any follow-up from brides getting married in Panama?  We're planning a low-key wedding there in early November, and I'm a bit worried about only giving the guests (although it's a short guest list) just six months to get ready.  We're looking at the Bristol, but it's expensive.  How did the Decameron work out?  I worried it was too resorty-- we don't want to battle college kids partying till three am on the beach.  I'd love to hear thoughts from you all!

we went to the Decameron in Jan and barely saw any "younger" crowds.  There were some families, groups but it wasn't a rowdy college/student type resort.

It is large, but because of all the greenery it didn't have that large resort feel.  There were so many different pools and areas to hang out, all surrounded by tree's and such you could feel as if you were at a diff resort every day! lol :)

I just got married in Panama (my fiance is from there) and would be happy to share my experiences! We did everything at the Bristol Buenaventura, but have stayed at Decameron and Playa Blanca before as well. We had a big wedding (200 people), and had to navigate doing the Catholic ceremony outside, coordinating vendors, etc... so I know how frustrating it can be. That said - it's beautiful!

Looking at getting married at either the Decameron or the Sheraton Bijao Beach (Breezes) and was wondering if anyone can send me any pictures of their weddings that took place there.  I've heard that both sites have different area's for the ceremony but I can't seem to find any pictures of them.  Also, looking for any information that you can give me regarding the actual experience.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
