    Hello Everyone,

    My name is Elizabeth and I'm planning on getting married in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in July of 2011.

    I was actually married to my wonderful husband in December in City Hall. It was a very small ceremony and we did it quickly because he was deployed to Afghanistan last minute in January. Its been hard but he is safe and he gave me the go-ahead to start planning the wedding of our dreams for July.He will be here in November of this year.

    I am in between these resorts: Paradisus, Dreams and Gran Bahia Principe. I need more info and thoughts on them in order to decide. Help please :)

    My group size will be about 80 people . I also would like to work it a wedding coordinator but dont know where to start.

    hope to hear from you all,

          Elizabeth congratulations on your wedding and I hope you husband returns safely. I would suggest talking to a TA about your choices after researching them on this forum. Another good place to look more in depth at resorts in tripadvisor.

          Most resorts have their own WC and from what I read on the forum they seem to be slow to respond. My suggestion once you've selected a resort and are in touch with the WC is to keep a list of questions and send many at once instead of one by one.

          Good luck and happy planning!

              Hi Elizabeth, welcome to BDW :)

              Dreams is gorgeous in Punta Cana. Their gazebo set up in the court yard is a perfect layout for a wedding IMO. If you're wanting a beach wedding though I would maybe consider the other resorts you listed as if it's at Dreams PC there will be guests on the beach from what I've seen.

              Gran Bahia Principe looks amazing and huge. I only saw the outside and grounds but everyone I talk to about it has nothing but positive feedback. Check out some past reviews from brides from those resorts too. Hopefully that can help you out with your decision :) Happy planning!
