Picking your place and confirming your date is the hardest part, esp. because communication with a lot of these resorts is difficult. Look at tons of pics, ask people for recs. etc. Good luck!

I typed the same thing into Google when I got engaged. I signed up for The Knot and got so overwhelmed that I started crying at work.

 

Definitely decide if you want a legal ceremony or not and if you do, do some research on residency requirements in different places, which should help narrow it down. There are places that require the bride and/or groom to be there a month before the wedding and there are places that don't have any residency requirements. Decide the time of year you want to be married, type of place, all-inclusive or not, and figure out how many guests you will have. The number of guests can help dictate whether a place will work for you or not. Also consider the must have people at your wedding and how difficult the travel might be for them. It is your wedding and you have to do what you want, but if you don't feel strongly about one specific place, check out how long flights are and how expensive the resorts are in the area. Budget is definitely another thing to keep in mind.

 

Good luck!

    • 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.
