    Hi all! Carrie here


    New to the site (obviously) and trying to plan our wedding (on kind of short notice) for Punta Cana!

    We have a tentative date for 6/29/12 at the Hard Rock (been in contact with the resort, haven't signed the contract yet), but I'm having reservations on going all in for this place.  We love the date and love Punta Cana, however choosing this location will be more costly for our guests, although cheaper for us.  I'm just not sure the resort is going to be what I have been picturing as the ideal in my head.  I would much rather stay at Majestic Colonial or Elegance and have the wedding at the Jellyfish.  Of course, this would not be the "free" wedding we could get at the Hard Rock, but really, have you seen pics of a wedding at the Jellyfish?  THAT is EXACTLY the kind of caribbean beach wedding I have dreamed of, and IMO, soooo worth the cost!  Plus, MC/ME would be about 1/2 the price for my guests.  HOWEVER, the other problem, the Jellyfish doesn't have the date available .


    My FI I think (due to family pressure) is ready to sign on for the Hard Rock, and it would give us the date we want, but possibly less family and friends able to afford it.  He has seen information and pics on the Jellyfish and thinks it's great too, so I could probably convince him to have it there, but then we compromise on a different date, which with the short notice ( >7 months), would probably be in the middle of the week...


    What do we do?!?  Has anyone out there run into similar issues?  Any advice on what to do??

        Welcome!  I think a lot of brides have been in your position and it is tough, but you have to decide what is more important to you guys - the place you want or the people you want there.  I'm not familiar with either resort but you will have a great wedding no matter which one you choose.  Hopefully some other members can help!

              Thanks!  It's a somewhat blind choice, but from what I have been hearing and reading on here, I know it's going to be great!
