Choosing I resort canbe tricky.. My advice would be to talk to a travel agent you trust to narrow it Down, although I'm not expert! Things to think about - kid friendly - do they allow outside vendors -area... Is it quiet or a party area -all inclusive price?you want it to be affordable for your guests, a ta will help tremendously -reviews, obviously, lol - I think a lot of the resorts have wedding guides on their websites, check out their packages to see where you'll get the most bang for your buck

I stocked Trip Advisor and used the reviews on here then i narrowed it down to 4 and then I got my TA to quote all 4 then when I got all the quotes back I made the choice based on what I was trying to budget for my guests, and believe it or not I didn't go with the cheapest!

 

Good Luck

Hi,

 

Trip advisor is a great resource as well as getting on some of the webinars through best destination wedding for the resorts once you narrow your choices down.  Also, keep in mind that a lot of the big resorts charge fees for outside vendors so if you are thinking of hiring an outside vendor ask about the fees before you book so that you can include that in your budget.

 

Happy Planning!

Jennifer

I also just started planning too! Finding a location is so overwhelming because the world is literally at your fingertips! I'm pretty sold on Punta Cana because of the beautiful beaches and affordability for my guests...but I can't help feeling like I'm overlooking an even BETTER location which is still as affordable. And then when you think you know the location you want, your faced with a list of resorts, all with their own fair share of good and bad reviews. I fell in love with a resort, and trip-advisor crushed the beautiful resort my Fiancee and I thought was THE ONE! So now I don't know what to do. I have a love-hate with those review websites. Ugh... I hope its like finding the dress...you will just know when its the right one!

I went with the travel agent at destinationweddings.com gave my agent the feel for what I wanted then she gave me resorts and destinations that she felt would mesh. Then I lived on the travel websites for about a week and looked and every candid photo and read every review. I ende up with Moon Dance Villas in Negril. If you want my TAs info PM me. She is fab!!!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
