Newbie here! Trying to figure it all out..

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone...

 

So i just got engaged a month ago and we have decided on a destination wedding... I'm so excited! But things are a little more complicated because I'm in medical school and will be on my rotations next year, so I need to work around that schedule. Plus a couple of my bridesmaids also have a different rotations schedule, so I hope I can work it out. I'm still trying to pick a place to have it, I dont even know where to begin.. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated! When I start thinking about it alll, my head just starts spinning

Welcome Michelle! Planning any wedding in med school would be really tough! Are you currently a second year or third year? I would think it would be easier to do before starting rotations, or during fourth year when most schools will give you some vacation blocks.

Are there any locations you're thinking about? Let us know how we can help you, and feel free to PM me if you have any med school questions (I'm very happy to be done with all that).

Thanks for all the encouragement guys! So I think I'm going to aim for next March/April... We both have very large families, so I think between that and our friends there will be about 100 people. I want it to be a little bit more on the formal side, outside looking over the ocean, but maybe not necessarily right on the sand. Im trying to stick to places that are price friendly for my guests, so I guess Mexico? Most of my guests are coming from the east coast, are there other places that are all price friendly for my guests? I would like it to be an all inclusive resort so it would be easier for the guests, but I want a nice place too... any suggestions?

 

Thanks! Good luck with the planning everyone! cheer2.gif

There are definitely a lot of Mexico brides who can point you in the right direction. Jamaica also has a lot of AI hotels (Riu, Sunset at the Palms, Beaches - google - there are a ton), as does the Dominican Republic (Iberostar). Check out the marriage requirements for each place (residency stay, blood tests, etc).

I'm sure you'll find something perfect!

    • 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.
