Newbie Trying to decide betwee Mexico & DR!!
Posted 03 February 2010 - 05:00 PM
My name is Nicole and I'm from Charlotte, NC. I got engaged over the holidays and FI and I are set on doing a destination wedding!! I'm having a hard time making a decision between Aventura Cove Palace, Dreams Cancun, and Dreams Punta Cana. All of the information that is already posted about the resorts on this site has been a huge help!! I guess now it just be down to the numbers FI and I have quite a large guest list already, ~200, but are estimating between 80-100 will actually come.
If anyone has any additional advice or suggestions on the 3 resorts I've listed as favorites, I'd absolutely love to hear it.....as well as any thoughts on planning large DW!!

Like you said, there is a ton of information on all of those resorts on this forum, so that's a good start.
But maybe you should look at airfare for your guests maybe it's a lot cheaper to fly to Cancun than it is to fly to DR? And if your guest list is that big, perhaps it could be a factor that helps you narrow it down.

Although I know my sister had a wonderful time on her honeymoon in the DR, in the end, we opted for Mexico. When we weighed the options, there seemed to be more to do in Mexico and while the hotels were comparable, the flights to Mexico tend to be more reasonable for our guests than to the DR.

Oh, and you can also rent out one of their restaurants for a private reception. And the per-head amount is a lot better than the competition (even though it is so silly that you're paying per head even though the guests are staying at the hotel and it's all-inclusive....).
Now I'm starting to sound like an adverstisement for Iberostar. If you need any additional information or specific details, by all means, let me know.
Best of luck, Emily
