Getting Married in DR in Nov 2011! -- Venue Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a recommendation for an all-inclusive resort to get married at in DR?  We need a place that has multiple choices of "venues" within the resort. 

 

We're having a traditional Indian wedding, so we have several events, and we'd like them spread across a few different places in a resort rather than doing everything in a ballroom or the beach.  We're also expecting about 150 people, so if you can think of places with large lobbies or open grounds/areas that we can get creative with, that would be great!

 

We love the Dreams Resorts, but any other thoughts?  Thanks!

Check out Dreams Palm Beach and Melia Caribe, we have narrowed our choice down to one of these resorts.  They seem to have lots of options.  Melia probably has better packages for a large wedding like yours.

 

You can email them and ask for pricing and package options.  I did and received responses within 1-2 days.  Melanie Mena the WC at Dreams is very helpful and patient,  I have emailed her tons of questions and she has promptly responded to all of them.

 

Since you are having a big wedding it probably will help to have a good WC.

 

good luck!

Hey SChica, we're also having an Indian wedding in DR and are looking into having the same amount of guests and lots of venues!... I've been searching this forum for someone looking for the same things as us! Just heads up with Dreams - they shut your music off at approx. 11pm, which definitely doesn't work for us. Melia lets the music go til 1am or 1:30am and there are tons of venues.. Right now we're in the process of getting group rates for Melia and Paradisus..

 

Let me know where you ended up booking!!

Jennyallisha,

Check out mypuntacanadweddings.com they are local event planning company and i think they are great. I didnt find out about this company until 2 months before my wedding, so i would have used them for entire wedding. I used them for flowers and shuttle service for guests that fly into Santo domingo and ride the shuttle to punta cana. you should at least contact them for help. Vivana is the conta nct and she is really nice.

Hi,


We actually decided to go with Moon Palace in Mexico for a few reasons:

 

1) We had to have Indian food at our wedding. We did not find ANY resorts in DR that would allow this exception for a caterer/chef to come on site. They all were strict about not having an outside vendor come in for this.

2) We're getting married Thanksgiving weekend, so flights to DR were much more exp than Mexico and we didn't want our guests to pay that much...
 

So if Indian food isn't a huge deal for you, then you should have a lot more selection than we did. Good luck! Let me know what you find!

You need a large resort, any Palace resorts should do it as they tend to be large.  Look into big names such as Iberostar,etc.   In theory though, most resorts are large enough. And November is not a busy month so you'll have much more choice in terms of the rooms and everything.

 

Happy planning!

    • I would like both my son's to walk me down the aisle and my dad. please give me any ideas to include all 3 of them. I'm open to any ideas please
    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
