    Hello Ladies, I am new to this site, I find it to be very resourceful especially for a Destination Wedding. Thank you for sharing your experience and your wedding details. :) We got engaged Oct 2012, We have decided Punta Cana as the destination, it was pretty easy to pick D.R. Since I was born there and have some family. We don't have a set wedding date- I have been trying to get dates on the RIU website, the months we are considering are March-June. But there is no availability for 2014 as of yet?! Which makes it that much frustrating since we want to give our guests enough time to plan and budget. I want to be considerate and hopefully get a deal for hotel & air for them. Thats why we are not sure which month its the most affordable and inconvenient. IF anyone has a Direct contact for RIU - Punta Cana Sales Team that can assist me I will greatly appreciate it. It's soo much info and details that we need to be aware of that it makes it a bit of a Nail Bitter..But in all I want to enjoy planning our special day that I want to share our loved ones. I just want it to be an Amazing experience with min stress.. I have not picked out colors yet, our budget is under $15k we are estimating around 50-80 guests or so. We want to be married in the gazebo. I am a bit confused as to getting married legally in NY first since i hear its a bit of a pain to do it in D.R. .So much so much any info or details from brides and brides to be is Appreciated.

      Congrats kgentile! and welcome to the BDW forum community! yes, you're right about this being a wonderful resource for planning a destination wedding - with lots of info, suggestions + advice from everyone here :)

      There's a small boutique resort on the north shore of the DR which could be worth you checking out that would fit well within your budget,

      It's  called "Vecinos" in Cabarete, and is a great place for an intimate group of 2 dozen people (in case some of your guests can't make it, and your number goes down).

      There's a link to it here.......
