Hi Everyone:


I am so excited. I am finally engaged to a man better than my dreams! We've been friends for about 5 years now and dating for almost 3 1/2 years. He is honestly my best friend and I couldn't be more honored to take this journey to becoming his future wife. However this road trip will be a bit bumpy as we are two people who are at the opposite sides of the spectrum...for instance:


  • I am 'Splack' of Haitian and Honduran descent born in NY...He is Indian born in Guyana
  • I am a practicing Catholic...He's a practicing Hindu
  • I'm loud and crazy...He's quiet and calm
  • I'm an only child...he's the older brother of 4 sisters
  • I'm social and outgoing...He's the reserved type, well until he gets to know you
  • I'm a spender...He's a saver
  • I am spontaneous and will do almost anything once...Him...mmm..not so much rolleyes.gif
  • I want a Destination wedding...He wants to stay here in NY


Yet somehow with all the differences, we have become an amazing compliment and match to one another. So planning this wedding with our crazy families should be fun. Everyone has an opinion and our faiths are equally important to us...It's never a dull moment with us!


I am excited to be officially using BDW! I fell in love with this site about year ago and have been secretly stalking it ever since. I love the ideas and advice and can't wait to use them while dishing some out of my own.


Thanks for reading and happy planning!

Thanks everyone. I still have yet to decide a definitive location, however it definitely will not bw in New York. :) 


Debating between Playa Del Carmen, MX (My #1 fave), Miami, Fl or Puerto Plata, DR...

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
