    Hey everyone,

    I'm Sasha and just recently got engaged over the holidays! We are really excited to start the wedding planning. Yes, I said *we*, my fiance even beat me to joining this forum!

    We have always wanted to have our wedding outdoors somewhere warm, and so far we are looking at Punta Cana. We have quite a large family (40-50 people) who might be joining us on the beach, but we are having some difficulty finding a resort that offers packages for such a large group. The resorts that offer for 20 guests would charge us silly extra 'per person' fees. The resorts that we have found that offer wedding packages for 60 guests, none of them have gotten any real good reviews. Frustrating! Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm looking forward to talking with people on here, and hoping I might even be able to eventually offer some help/advice/info!

        Oops, I forgot to mention that we are hoping to set the date for sometime in early November 2010.

          Congrats and welcome from a fellow Torontonian! I would like to get married in Punta Cana as well but haven't booked a resort yet -- check out the Dominican forums for lots of great information. Happy planning!

            Welcome Sasha! I've only been here for a few days myself but I love seeing other Toronto brides join!

            My fiance and I are also looking into Punta Cana...but also Mayan Riveria or Cabo. Good luck with your planning!
