Another confused bride!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm looking into a destination wedding to see how it compares to a wedding at home. So my eyes are swimming with resorts and packages!

 

Our wedding will most likely be in May 2011. Possibly at the Hacienda Tres Rios. That's where we got engaged in November! But there are other resorts we are pricing out.

 

And today we signed papers for our first house together!

Hello welcome to the forum and congrats on both your engagement and the new house. :-)

 

I think both an at home wedding and a destination wedding has it's pros and cons, I know some people have problems with family members being unable to attend your destination wedding, however the guest that are there, tend to be a very close group of friends and family and to me that was the most important thing for my destination wedding.

 

Best of luck to you and I wish you luck with your new home.

Welcome! It's perfectly natural to feel overwhelmed with the choices available to you. Just take a deep breath and soon the important differences between locations will start standing out and you'll be able to make a decision! Good luck :)

    • 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.
