New DW Bride!

Recommended Posts

I don't know much about Jamaica, but I do know that off-season for tourists is the summer months here - June to September. We have gone to Mexico twice in the summer, and got WAY WAY WAY more "bang for your buck" - most recently, two weeks for less than half of one during tourist season! So we will be getting married during the summer in the Dominican. I am sure it is the same in Jamaica.

A word of warning: summer may be cheaper at all of these places, but it is REALLY hot. I know it is always hot in those tropical places, but this is when the year highs are, and the temperature really does not drop that much during the evening. Also, it is rainy season, but it is probably not going to rain all day every day anyway. On our recent Mexico trip (maybe Jamaica is different?) it rained at night, and only once during the day during the two weeks.

So anyway, we have found that is a good way to save some money.

Wellcome to the forum :D

We booked at Sandals Grande Ocho Rios. It was slightly more expensive, but I fell in love with what they had to offer and because we have no guests with us, we could afford to choose something slightly more expensive, because you dont have to spend all this money on invitations, decorations, favors, OOT bags and other things. We picked December because it is less expensive month out of all of them and it is only time when my army FI can 90% be positive that he will not be send on duty. Good luck with your planning.

    • 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.
