Hello and Congrats!!


This site is wonderful when planning for a destination wedding because you can see pictures of other weddings at your venue, read several reviews on different vendors, and get lots of cool ideas and suggestions along the way. Have you began to look at different venue sites?  Cabo's most popular and main beach (and one of the only swimmable beaches) is Medano beach. If you are hoping for a really private beach ceremony, I would suggest looking into hotels that are not located right on the Medano strip. Are you and your fiance able to make a site visit? I know for me this was not only helpful, but necessary before deciding on a resort and photographer.  (But I am a HUGE planner.)


What have you done so far? And do you have a date and budget in mind? Even early on, those are two things you MUST know before making any decisions.

Mari has wonderful starting off points.


I think the key is

1. Budget.  Make a budget.  Know the budget.  Stick to the budget.  This will help narrow down resorts.

2.  Do you want to get married on the beach or in a gazebo.  Some resorts don't have one of the options, so that'll help

3.  Do you want an outdoor private reception?

4.  Do you want all-inclusive?

5.  Will kids be invited?

6.  Do you want a large resort with a ton of things to do, or a more botique resort for an intimate time?


When you start answering questions like that the list of resorts will get smaller and smaller until you're left with the perfect one for you and your fiance!

Something that helped us make our decision was the proximity of the resort to the downtown/marina.  We definitely knew we wanted to be close to the marina so if guests/we wanted to go out to dinner or go shopping for the day they would not be paying outrageous amounts in taxi fair.  We ended up choosing Riu Palace.  It is a really nice hotel and is also about a 15 minute beach walk or a 5 minute cab drive from the marina.  Other resorts may be a 30 or 45 minute drive to the marina.  Just something to think about.  Hope this helps :)

    • 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.
