Most people seem to be having big weddings even in DR. For us it is second time for both of us and it could be likely we will be doing it on our lonesome. Maybe a couple of guests - just not sure everyone will have the vacation time or the budget. My family is in UK and friends in US. I think at most maybe would have 10 guests but that is being hopeful!
Either way I still want a nice hotel and nice location even if it is just for us - but because it is second time and don't want to spend a lot and wondering where would suit us best. Been looking at Dreams La Romana, Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace and in Punta Cana Sol Melia Caribe Tropical, Barcelo Bavaro Beach and Majestic Elegance. If it was just us I would opt for La Romana as I want to visit there - but also been looking at Punta Cana incase anyone else wants to join us so flights would be easier and cheaper on them.
Anyone done solo wedding ceremonies or looking to do? Would really like to find somewhere with a free included ceremony since we don't need a big reception but most require x number of rooms booked to do that. I have tried making enquiries with some hotels but finding much the same as anyone here - no-one is fast to respond. Infact been waiting for Wyndham 4 weeks now.
Not many must have's but would like a ceremony that would be legal in US and just somewhere nice for ceremony and pictures - without lots of gawking tourists! Would be even worse I think if it was just the two of us and everyone staring. I am also torn between some nice gazebo with the sea and blue sky for ceremony/photo's or having something at dusk on the beach with tiki torches. The latter has been my dream for a while but might regret missing out on great photo ops.
Just wondered if anyone has done this type of wedding and had any advice?
