Congrats on your recent engagement!

 

I would start a "must have list" first and then start comparing the resorts. Look for things such as size, kids/adults only, all-inclusive, private reception costs, wedding ceremony locations, etc. Definitely get their banquet/wedding costs up front and see if they are running any specials. And don't worry about timing. You'll probably have quite a few weekends to pick from even in a month so enjoy the decision making process.

 

This forum is a life saver!!!! I am sure you'll find everything you need (and add like 1000 ideas that you didn't think you needed too!).

We've been looking at those resorts as well. Melia is beutiful but huge. So if you are looking for an intimate setting it may not be the best place, but I do like the idea of getting away from everybody if I need to without even leaving the resort! Dreams is also beautiful and they have tons of info on their website. But something we've noticed is they are very very busy with weddings. There are like 3-4 weddings a day. Just some things to consider when looking at these places. Melia and Dreams are both still on our list. So they definitely have their good points. Another resort to consider that we've looked into is Ocean Blue & Sand and Majestic Colonial. They're on the opposite ends of the price spectrum, but I've heard great things about both. Good Luck

alisonu22- thank you so much for your advice, I was thinking of Dreams as welll, but I read a couple of reviews that said the same thing regarding the amount of weddings, and that the beach is not that good at Dreams....I am in love with Melia but its a tad pricey!!! UGH, decisions! I am going to check out the ones you recommended! When are you planning your wedding for?

Congrats. Good luck in your search. You might find it helpful to search the places you have it narrowed down to and read reviews from previous brides, see pictures etc. I'm sure you'll love whichever you choose. You can't go wrong with a wedding on the beach with your closest friends and family.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
