How did you choose your wedding site?!

Recommended Posts

As I've learned from finding BDW, if you keep looking you won't ever decide.  So FI and I had to make a list of what we each wanted out of the resort and compare.  That helped us narrow it down, and then we let our feelings decide.  We had it narrowed down to 2, and there was only one resort that felt right, and if we looked at the other it felt like we were "cheating" on the resort we truly loved and that is how we finally realized it was the right one.


I know it sounds easy to just stop looking, but you already know which one you want, it just will take you time to figure out which one is the perfect fit.

If you have the chance try to go do a site visit.  My FI and I just came back from our site visits in Cancun/Riviera Maya and the hotel I had as my top choice changed after I actually saw them all.  It totally helps you decide once you can see it in person- the pictures don't always do them justice (or the opposite).

totally agree! I just came back from my site visit and now i'm even more confused. I thought I was going to come back with a date and place and I just left with more questions.  And time flies when youre on a site visit. Wish I couldnt have seen more. The search continues.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
