They all have a catholic package all you have to do is ask. I have been in contact with the Head of the catholic church in the Punta Cana area and in a nutshell you can do a catholic ceremony in any location other than the beach. The paper work that the priest emailed me said that as long as it's not on the beach and in a respectful location you can have it anywhere. Now if your question is you want to get married in a catholic church that is a much longer and complicated issue. The hotel has to coordinate dates and payments with the church. That is a church requirement. Most wedding coordinators are LAZY especially Dreams Punta Cana coordinator Sharron Pitches and Dreams Palm Beach coordinator Melani Mena (Yes I named names). So figure out if you want it on the resort or off the resort in a church.

Also, I'm not sure if you have been getting replies to your question off the message board but this is for the people who post the well wishes. The well wishes are nice but when people have questions they are useless.

Let me know if you are considering an off resort wedding because I have more info and all the contacts for the churches and bus companies. I am still fighting with several resorts to get them to actually do some work.
Thanks for the response. Much appreciated! I am currently communicating with Palladium Bavaro with the intent on using their facilities (Gazebo) for the catholic ceremony. I feel it may be too hard to transport all the guests to a nearby church and would love the 'openness' of a Gazebo. I also am having some difficulties getting responses. I sent some emails over a week ago and have slowly started to get responses. Are you planning on doing it at a resort or a church?

Thanks again...

Welcome! Don't get too discouraged with the slowness of response times. I know it is a common issue from the posts I've seen on this forum. Sounds like you have a pretty good start! Best of luck with the rest of your planning :)

Hello, congrats on your engagement and welcome to the forum. It looks like someone already answered your questions, so I'll just add that we had several threads on Punta Cana that I' am sure will help you with other planning needs.

No Problem, We were planning to do it at a church off the resort. Which none of that is a problem. I got in touch with a transportation company, the church and everyone in between. The only problem was the wedding coordinators who do not want to do anything outside of the package. Just remember when dealing with them that you are giving them a lot of business depending on how many people are coming down plus the cost of the wedding package. Whatever you do don't give in to what they say. Just take your business down the road if they aren't working for you. Like I said every hotel does Catholic weddings (the island is over 85% catholic) so that's not a problem. However having them actually doing something beyond these are the dates and this is how much you owe seem to be.

Ugh! It seems like such a hassle to try and plan a Catholic wedding! As kalikid4life said, ask your resort about specifics for Catholic weddings - and you may have to look into off-resort options if you are getting married in a church.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
