Hi!

I am also a newbie here! I was able to set the venue and date within a week. 

I suggest to set a budget first, and go to the traveler's review websites (ie.tripadvisors.com). 

If you have a location in mind, search the name of the city and check the rank of the hotels. 

 

1. Check the photos and reviews. If you like a few hotels, make a list 2

2. Go to the websites that sell vacation packages (ie. selloffvacations.com, expedia.com) and check the price of the  the week that you want to go and stay (or pick a random date if it is too far).

 

3.1 Fits your budget? then, come back to bestdestinationwedding.com and check the reviews. 

3.2 Not fitting your budget? Go back to #2 and try another hotel

 

4. Read the reviews thoroughly. Priceless tips are all here. It seems to take a long time, but I believe reading & researching saves time & money at the end.

 

5. Like it? Visit the hotel's website and check the price for the wedding package. You may buy the wedding package first by contacting the hotel directly, or via the hotel's website. Mine (The Royal Playa del Carmen) reserved the date & time automatically as I deposit money online. Different hotels have different policies & package prices. Still like it? Make a reservation as soon as possible.

 

This is how I started. Good luck!

I'm in new Brunswick and we are also looking to get married in the DR in Feb or March 2013. We don't have a resort picked yet but hopefully soon! I find there are so many beautiful resorts it's hard to choose! I think it will be in Punta Cana but who knows!

Welcome! I think your first step should be to choose a location and a resort.  From there I would contact the wedding coordinators at that specific resort and book a date.  After that you can start to send out your STDs and plan everything else.
