      Hi brides. I need to Bump this thread up. My wedding is this October and I need to change the location completely. US islands are different than the other islands where everything is all inclusive. I really need help selecting a venue that is not going to cost us much more than what we were going to spend in the Dominican Republic.  Our wedding size is 20.

            I just got engaged and we decided on a destination wedding.  After careful thought PR was our decision...a place we would both like to visit, has beaches, warm weather, culture,etc....

             

            But having never visited, I have NO idea where to begin.  We are really looking at having our ceremony at a venue, and a reception at a cozy, yet classy place in Old San Juan. 

             

            Any suggestions for places...even a jumping off point would be nice :)  This is all a bit overwhelming

              We also just decided on PR. We were engaged there in October and I still have lots of family there. It so overwhelming because I would like something classy but relaxed and elegant but unpretentious. I have been leaning toward the Hacienda Siesta Alegre because the rates are fair, however once you start adding in vendors the price goes up substantially. I would love something that says Puerto Rico. If I want a beach wedding I can get married here in Miami but I truly want my guests to have an authentic experience. BTW i went to a wedding last year at San Juan Resort and Casino and the food was good, the wedding was nice. The bride also said she had a great planner, you may want to start there. It's just too hotel-y for me. Any suggestions??

                Hopefully I can help a bit.  We are getting married there in October.  We wanted a true Old San Juan feel to the wedding, instead of a beach wedding that could be held anywhere else in the world. Because of that, we are getting married at one of the forts, San Cristobal and are having our reception at El Convento.  If you want to be married at a church, I'd look at Cathedral of San Juan Bautista.  Another ceremony location is El Morro. 

                 

                Those should good starting points if you want an Old San Juan wedding :)

                  Any suggestions on where to have a rehearsal dinner for about 50 people? My wedding is at La Concha next summer, but I'm visiting in a few weeks and want to check some places out.

                      La Concha should be a good place to host your rehearsal dinner.  We are having ours at Barrachina in Old San Juan.  Apparently it's a popular location for them as their website is rehearsaldinnerpr.com :)
