    My best friend just got engaged on Saturday and wants to marry next summer in Punta Cana (the groom has family in DR.)

    She is looking for an affordable off the beach all-inclusive resort that won't be expensive.  She has no idea where to start!!

     

    Should she decide on a date first, send out save the date cards THEN book a hotel?

     

    Guys Id like any help and direction, suggestions, or anything based on your experiences.

     

    She's been like my sister for almost 25 years!!!  I wanna take this stress off of her or atleast help point her in the right direction.

     

    I appreciate any help!

     

    Thank you ladies in advanced.

    <3

        I haven't been to Punta Cana, but I wanted to say you're a great friend for looking into this!  Search the forums for Punta Cana and Reviews Punta Cana, and I'm sure you will find a ton of info!

                    find a hotel, confirm a date and then send out save the date cards.

                      Hi, welcome to the forum!

                       

                      In my opinion the first thing that I would do is help her decide on a resort and then think about dates.

                       

                      Depending on what month, or even which day you go prices can vary (I saved £50 per person just by going 2 days later)

                       

                      And if you set a date and spend money sending out save the date cards and then you come to book and the date you want isn't available, then you've wasted all that money sending out the cards.

                       

                      Also the resorts have a minimum stay before you get married there (my resort is 4 days), also the hotel could have lots of weddings on the date you choose so might not be able to accomodate you even if you manage to get the right flights.x
