May 2014 Bride????

Recommended Posts

I am newly engaged, and have decided to get married May18, 2014.  However, I am having a hard time determining which all inclusive resort in Punta Cana . I would appreciate any feedback or suggestions with regards to narrowing down a great location.My fiance is 50(his 2second marriage) and I am 40(my first).  I would like to be able to have a welcome party, rehearsal dinner, and a private reception with decorations and some type of music.  The music can be a DJ or a sound system to play an IPod.I would also like a resort that has some type of night life.  My guests love to have a good time and party. We thought it would be nice to go away to get married.  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(NYC) was difficult.  This DW planning just as difficult.  I appreciate you all and your comments.

Of course I am going to recommend my resort... Majestic Elegance. It also seems to be very popular. You can get married on the beach or at the Gazebo. they have doration packages to choose from or you can bring your own items to be set up. You can do a free dinner at the Sea & See and the Asadito Steakhouse for up to 60 guests or you can have a private dinner. The are more pricey so you will notice many opt in for the semi private since it's almost the same. the private dinner 70pp which includes venue fee, basic setup, buffett dinner, and open bar.

 

What I am doing.. 6:00 Ceremony at the Gazebo, 7:30 Semi-private dinner at the See & Sea. 9-11 reception at the Wet Bar. I would have liked a 5:00 ceremony time, but oh well.

 

If you go with semi-private dinner it's all free and included. And you can do a private reception at the Parrot Bar or Wet Bar for $500 per hour which includes basic setup, venue fee, open bar, and sound system to plug in your iPod.

 

Symbolic Ceremony Fee: 1250.00

 

Let me know if you have any questions on this resort. Also, we have several foreums within this one about Majestic Elegance.

I'm in the same boat!  We are looking for April 2014.  I'd rather have the wedding and dinner off the resort, but the only place that keeps popping up is the Jellyfish restaurant.    I know someone that got married there already so I'd prefer somewhere different.  I can't find much info online though.

Hello ladies, I was also looking for places outside the all inclusive and found Kukua Restaurant, not many reviews on this forum but I found them on Trip Advisor, the place looks great and the wedding coordinator is very attentive and helpful. I saw the photos of their wedding on facebook and OMG ...   www.kukuarestaurantpuntacana.com     Hope that helps   happy planning!!!
