Ceremony Locations--HELP

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I need help! I can't decide on a DR resort. I am hoping to have the ceremony near the beach, but not directly on the sand. I was trying to find ceremony location pictures from all the resorts, but its taking FOREVER! If anyone knows a resort that has this type of ceremony location, please let me know. I would like the beach to be in the background of my ceremony pictures...it seems sort of silly...but it's what I've always dreamed of! Thanks for your help.

Have you looked at the Paradisus Punta Cana threads? I've posted all of the ceremony and reception locations in those posts. I'm really happy with our choice of a resort!

I looked at those pictures...and they look great! It didn't look like the ceremony locations were near the beach. The garden site would be perfect if you can see the beach from there. Do you know if the beach is close by that site?

The garden sites aren't near the beach, but we're having a beach reception and will have plenty of beach pics taken.

There are a TON of gazebos at Punta Cana resorts. Depends on the price range you want. Lots of people like Melia Caribe and Sunscape the Beach as well as Ocean Blue.

I went to a TA and got some Caribbean travel books with DR resorts ... scoured through them and narrowed it down ... then checked out wedding packages in order to naroow things down.

In Puerta Plata, DR there is this AWESOME resort with a gazebo that overlooks the ocean on a cliff. It's breathtaking. But, the beach is really rocky in that part of the country.

Punta Cana by far has the most beautiful beaches!

P.S. If you haven't yet, check out the Wedding Forum on Debbie's Dominican Republic Travel Pages - 1,000's of Resort Reviews, Tour, Scuba and Wedding Information. It's ALL DR brides and they can probably help you narrow down resorts really quick. Plus, all the wedding reviews are DR wedding reviews. Good resource for DR-specific stuff ... just not good for everything else wedding related (that's why I'm here!!!). :-)

It's just so breathtaking!! And I sacrificed the beach for this view! But if you are looking for a nice beach Punta Cana is it!
Another beautiful spot that is getting a bit more popular now is Samana. FI and I were there in February. It is amazing there!! GBP Cayo Leventado has an AMAZING beach (although its pricey!). I don't know if you could stay at one of the other GBP's nearby & get married at Leventado. We stayed at GBP Cayacoa! Let me know if you'd like more info!

    • 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?
