Newly engaged and trying to plan!

Recommended Posts

Hello all! My name is Jennifer. I am currently living in Houston, TX but am from South Dakota. Kyle and I recently got engaged after 4 years of dating. We are planning a November 2010 wedding...specfic date TBD!!We have decided a destination wedding would be best for us....but I am having a difficult time finding a great location that will be cost-friendly for close family & friends to attend and enjoy! I am looking into Dreams Puerto Vallarta, however, have not had a great response from the wedding planner there! So, now I feel like I am back to square one. We originally wanted to find a location in Puerto Vallarta....however, after more research I am wondering if we should try the Cancun/Riveria Maya area?? As you can see....I have lots of questions!! Any suggestions would be VERY GREATLY appreciated!

 

Thanks all!!!

 

Jennifer

Welcome to the forum! There is a ton of information out here to answer the many questions you have about the different resorts. I started my planning by meeting with a travel agent to find out what my options were - she was a life saver and I could not have picked my resort and gotten my guests booked without her :) Good luck and enjoy the process!

Hi, Jennifer!

Yay, another TX bride!

Congrats on your engagement and good luck in planning. I've never done the PV thing, but I know that Riviera Maya is pretty cost-effective to travel from TX. We usually go once a year after Christmas time for around $700-750pp. (Not resorts, however - we usually stay elsewhere) I saw some pretty okay deals for RIU Palace Riviera Maya from San Antonio on priceline if you'd like to check that out. :)

 

Anyway, hope that helps some!

    • 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!!
