brides on a budget?!!

Recommended Posts

Don't know how much you need to stick to a Saturday wedding date but most if not all vendors will offer discounts for off-season or weekday weddings (i.e. Friday ceremony?) Most of your guests are staying longer than just a couple days anyway so why not have your ceremony on Sunday or even better a Thursday when the resorts aren't as busy? You'll get better service (in my opinion) since they won't have multiple weddings happening at the same time and you'll get MUCH better prices. Vendors typically only do one wedding a day so time is valuable on Saturday but other days not so much :)

Go for an all inclusive so your guests will not have to open their wallets once they make the inital per night payment plus airfare. My guests were shocked that they cost included everything!

Good Luck and Welcome!


Some words of wisdom given to me: The people that you thought wouldn't attend WILL and the people that you didn't have any doubts, will most likely let you down. Just know, it's YOUR day and the people who will be there are the people who matter. Don't short-change what you really want to appease others and above all make sure to have NO REGRETS!

    • 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.
