A Frugal Bride's Riviera Maya DIY Wedding

Recommended Posts

 Nope, no adhesive or glue but you could, it certainly wouldn't hurt.  It was very windy the day of my wedding and I noticed afterwards that WC's did make an extra tie around the starfish with ribbon I had packed.

Ok, so its been awhile but I now have almost all my pics from the big day and thought I should post them so you can see how everything came together.

The barefoot sandals I made for myself & maid of honor.

The ceremony set up, I took everything with me except the real flowers and white fabric.  Shells were purchased from Winners & Ebay, Fans from Oriental Trading, white capiz chandelier off Kijiji and chair sashes from ebay.  The WC did exactly what I wanted with everything.

Do you remember what seller or what you typed to find it? I need that dress?

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
