Congratulations to all!!!  Can I just say thank you, thank you!!!  This forum has been so helpful in answering the numerous questions I had.  It has made me feel at ease that everything will be okay. 



Date: 12.21.13

Guest count: 40ish

Package: Caprice

Photographer: working on it...suggestions welcomed.

Videographer: any suggestions?

Ceremony: Beach at 2 p.m. (earlier for us so we can do the photo shoot after then rest a bit before the reception at 7 p.m.)

Reception: between Baja Norte and Beach (from the comments sounds like Baja Norte will be the way to go)

Music: guitarist (or trio) for ceremony, mariachi and DJ for reception

WC: Jatziri...although it's before the 2-month timeframe, she has been responsive. 


We wanted to offer a special treat to our friends and family instead of goodies or giveaways...thinking of a cruise.  Has anyone done this? Any suggestions on vendors?  


Since I have never been to Cabo, what are your thoughts of getting hair and make up done at the resort?  I have thick, long wavy hair and given the ceremony on the beach, I will most likely have my hair completely down or half-way down. We are going for the more casual, effortless look.


Has anyone taken underwater-trash-the-dress pictures?

This was one of the best posts EVER!!  Thank you so much for all of your information!  I'm getting married at the RIU on  04/26/2014.  I had a question about the Beach location..we are also planning on getting married on the beach, but I really want to wear heels/wedges.  What kind of shoes, if any did you wear and how did that work out?  In hindsight, would you still recommend the beach as opposed to the Gazebo, and how about not having a DJ?  We are having our Private reception at the Mexican Restaurant on the Terrace, but now I feel like I would rather have  Baja Norte.  Looking foward to more pics!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
