Congrats Nicole! I am also a May 2013 bride!! I wish we could afford to do it sooner but after doing some research I think its best that we hold off until 2013 so that I can really plan!! We are aiming for the Moon Palace in Cancun =)

 

A good friend of mine had her wedding at the Majestic Elegance (unfortunately I could not attend at the time)... but she had an amazing time and had nothing but good things to say about the resort!

 

I wish you the best in your wedding planning!

The first vacation my now husband and I went on was to the DR and we LOVED it.  Great choice.  And don't feel to overwhelmed about all the stuff you can find on here, b/c it won't end up mattering as much as you thought.  There are SO many of the little things about my wedding that I realized late in the game weren't necessary.  They were more work then reward.  Like the OOT bags, I sewed my own which was fun and cute, but then I filled them with junk instead of one or two nice things.  I regret that.  And the guest book too.  We only had 20ish guests so the book looks silly b/c it's practically empty!  Anyway, my point is that you will find a zillion and one ideas on here that you want to do, but you can't do them all.  The ones you chose to do, you will have plenty of help here!

I just wanted to introduce myself  since I've been lurking now for awhile...My name is Nicole, my fiance and I have been engaged since May and we are planning to have our wedding in the Dominican Republic in May 2013. Wohoo! If you asked me a month ago I would have told you that 2013 is so far off and we have plenty of time BUT the more I read this forum, the more I understand that there is so much to do!! I now feel slightly overwhelmed and in a panic becasue there are so many questions that need to be answered. I am so grateful I found this site and happy to know I can turn to past and future brides for their experience and support! Congratulations to everyone and I look forward to talking with you all. smile159.gif

 

I just wanted to say that I love this post!

Feel free to ask any questions, I trust you that there is at least one lady on here that can answer them for you.  Sometimes, I think the other ladies are better than having a wedding planner.  They cross all the T's and dot all I's.

 

Once again Welcome and I hope your planning process goes as smooth as buttercream frosting!

Hi Nicole, Welcome aboard. I am renewing my vows at the Majestic Colonial.  Although I have not been there, my mom has and she raves about the resort.  The decision make for me was the price for my guests.  I figured if I wanted anyone to show up, I would have to make it reasonable.  Happy planning! :)

We are planning on getting married in Punta Cana and we have it narrowed down to a about 5 resorts but the top runners so far are the Majestic Elegance, Melia Caribe, and the Now Larimar. We plan on going in March of next year for a site visit to make our final decision. From what I read though there are many brides who are waiting for january to come so they can book their date in 2013....I hope our date isn't taken by March eek!

 

Btw I think it's so funny that my status is actually "Lurker"...I guess I need to start posting more! lol

    • 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.
