    Hi I’m new to this forum and I’m very happy to hear from all these wonderful brides! My fianc© and I are planning on getting married in Punta Cana, DR next spring around the middle of March at the Paradisus Palma Real. My FI is white and I am Dominican raised in New York. He told me he would love to incorporate Dominican wedding traditions into our wedding. The problem is that I don’t know any beside, our music, food, and the Aras ritual. Does anybody have any more suggestions? Help!

      Why not ask your parents or relatives in the Dominican?

        There's already a thread about this

        Kelly & Pablo

        Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

          Thank you so much for directing me to the Dominican Tradition thread.
          As for asking my parents, well, they had a small wedding plus they are both Dominicans and at the time they lived and married there so it wasn't a big deal to incorporate Dominican traditions into their wedding. Same goes to my older family. In the other hand, I am marring a man from a different race/culture so it is very important for us to incorporate his tradition and mine.

          Thank you so much again for all the help!
