Punta Cana

Recommended Posts

I heard it's beautiful over there and that the wedding experience is to die for. I've never been there, but will be going there one day. My DH is Dominican but he's from Santiago and he's never been to Punta Cana.

My sister in law has been over there many times and comes back with pictures. She says it's so much more to do over there than it is in the Bahamas. She thinks the Bahamas is boring.

Is anyone waiting for the Moon Palace opening this weekend to decide on having a wedding there? I am! So just wondering if anyone is in the same boathuh.gif I am supposed to be having our wedding June 26 at Moon in Mexico, but my mom owns a travel agency and is now pushing Punta Cana, DR and I really want to change our plans since we just decided, so can still change everything. We would have to decide this weekend though since it's six months away and our guests are needing to book right away. What are the legal requirements? Are they much different from Mexico?

 

I need help deciding what to do!! I'm so confused!

 

Any help is much appreciated! Of course!

Luvpugz, I am getting married at the Melia in April. I have seen a lot of great reviews, the good outweigh the bad in my opinion. All resorts have their quirks and I think it would be impossible to please everyone. I say just be an educated reader of the reviews / threads and don't assume the worst (e.g. the recent heart attack I had over thinking outside photographers not being allowed got worked out for that couple and some of it seemed like it was a misunderstanding when I got the rest of the pieces to what happened).

If you are on facebook check out the Melia Caribe Tropical Brides group. Also, check out the wedding section of Debbie's Dominican Forum because there is a huge thread on the Melia weddings (94 or pages, a lot to sift through but worth it). These might help you with more info on the Melia.

We had the time of our lives in Punta Cana! So many fantastic resorts to choose from.

 

The Melia is right next door to the Palma Real (where we honeymooned) and it looked fine. It's all about what your expectations are. I'm sure you will have a fabulous wedding.

 

We married at the Paradisus Punta Cana and our guests all want to go back. It was a great resort and FUN - we had a lot of partiers in our group (up to age 79!!) and we are planning to celebrate our 2-year anniversary back at our wedding resort with anyone who wants to join us - so far we have about 15 people who are planning to go back!

I second Paradisus Palma Real... it was amazing. I honeymooned there as well and I have been to a lot of AI's and none of them hold a candle to this place. I saw two weddings while we were there and they were beautiful! They pay so much attention to detail that you can't be there and not feel totally magical. Let us know if you have specific questions, good luck!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
