#1 reason you picked your location

Recommended Posts

A combination of quality and price. But I had driven through La Romana when I visited Punta Cana and I remember the tour guide guy saying This is where the celebrities come when they visit the Dominican.

It's less touristy, but still incredibly beautiful.

My FI and I had a few requirements of the resort before we even knew which one we wanted. It had to have a great beach, good snorkeling right off the beach and an on-site PADI dive shop. I also wanted to keep it as affordable as possible to ensure as many guests as possible would be able to make it. For the price range that I wanted it was going to be between Cuba, Mexico and Dominican Republic. My FI and I were in both Cuba and Mexico for DWs in 2009 and decided that we wanted to try somewhere new. My travel agent came back to me with the Dreams La Romana. After signing up with this site and receiving so much great help and information, I am even more excited to go and can't wait to finally get there in 3 months!

I picked Cancun, Mexico because it was 1) Affordable for guests, 2) has Beautiful beaches, 3) variety of activities & good nightlife to excite guests and keep them entertained throughout the week (we have a lot of young ppl traveling and didn't want them to be bored the days before the wedding)

 

I chos the venue because it was gorgeous, unique and has an amazing view of the ocean. I always wanted an outdoor wedding with the turquoise ocean as the backdrop. I also chose the venue based on the responsiveness, professionalism and flexibility of the WC.

FI and I had our first vacation together in the Riviera Maya and loved it. It's also really easy/cheap to get to from the East coast. Picking the exact resort was a much harder decision!!

I picked other...our family is from Jamaica and I knew that's where I'd marry! We're off-site because of the size of our guestlist...also most folks are already there!

I also chose Riviera Maya b/c it is much cheaper to fly to from both the East and West Coasts than, say, Puerto Vallarta. We also chose it b/c we found a reasonably priced hotel option and also (duh!) b/c of the warm weather! :) Cost to our guests was a HUGE concern for me.

    • 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?
