Welcome and congrats to all the new brides :)  It is so exciting to see everyone find their dream resort and start the planning process.


The resort search really is difficult but I trusted my heart and am so glad I picked the Moon Palace.

I feel so behind schedule with booking a place and sending out STDs. Now the WC at one of the resorts near Playa del Carmen told me that they cannot have beach cocktail hours or receptions from Late April to November because the music and lights disturb the sea turtles laying eggs. Have any of you heard this from resorts? I am trying to figure out if this goes for the entire coast of Riviera Maya or just this specific resort. I was so excited to have a beach reception with 65 guests and am really upset hearing this news. If any of you have suggestions that would be great! Thanks!


I'm getting married on April 20th, 2012 at the Royal Playa del Carmen, and our reception is on the beach - never heard about the sea turtle thing.

June 9th, 2012! :) :D


Not a destination wedding, but still a beach wedding! :)


We have our:


Ceremony booked,

Reception site booked,

Rentals booked,

Officiant booked and paid for,

DJ booked and paid for,

Photographer booked

Bridesmaids & Flower Girls dresses picked out

Videographer booked


Musicians about to be booked

Transportation to be booked soon


In the process of getting flowers (Very picky about my colours so it's taking a while :P)


Have someone I'm going to get back in contact with for invitations, but I think it's too soon for that yet :P.

Have the stuff to do our wedding favours, and have started collecting stuff to do our own thank you cards :).


I have a dress in mind but am going to go dress shopping once more before I decide for sure.


I LOVE that we had over a year to plan it! It has given me a lot of time to bargain shop, and take my time to find vendors, etc.


I think the only 'main thing' we haven't figured out yet, is who is going to do our cake :P.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
