    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?

          I did a search for 'gazebo dominican' and this thread seems to have some great info:

            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!
