    I am newly engaged, and have decided to get married in 2014.  However, I am having a hard time determining what resort to choose in Punta Cana.  I would appreciate any feedback or suggestions with regards to narrowing down a great location.  My fiance is 50(his 2nd marriage), I am 40(my first).  We thought it would be nice to go away.  All the resorts that I've researched have some enticing packages, but I'm fighting with narrowing it down to at least 2 or 3.  I do plan to travel early next year to do a site visit.  I thought planning a wedding at home was difficult.  This DW planning is just as difficult.


    Thank you!!

      Hi Sbowie,  I'm a Wedding photographer based at Punta Cana, I live close to some big hotels, Barcelo Palace Deluxe, Melia, Paradisus Palma Real, Ifa Villas Bavaro & Now Larimar, are the closest, and I´ve worked in the most of them, so if you need any last minute information or whatever you need to know, feel free to ask.  Best Regards & Happy Planning   Asia Pimentel

        HI there :)

        I am not in Punta Cana but I have been there. We are in Puerto Vallarta. Mexico but I am sure they all work the same. Your best bet is to get a wedding planner to handle all your needs. It may cost you 500 to 1000 to 1,500 dollars but you will save this in phone hassles, better rates, commodity and convenience as well as a guarantee of experience. When I deal with my brides I offer them unlimited emails, Skype and phone calls and we answer them within 24 hours. So it is not that hard if they are organized. Hotels are busy and have weddings daily and sometimes twice a day so you have to be patient if you are not going to get a professional planner to help you and go only with the hotel staff.

        Anyway, that is what I suggest and although I am in Mexico I am confident it is the same there as well. Good luck and if you need help with general questions of planning I am glad to help.
