Price to Elope intimately

Recommended Posts

Hi- newbie here! We were planning a big wedding in our hometown but family & finances just got to be too much to deal with so we cancelled it all & are very excited to be jetting off to Mexico for our joint elopement/honeymoon. We are planning on staying on Isla Mujeres at Privilege Aluxes and were considering having the ceremony there, however their packages seem to be pretty pricey, in my opinion. It would just be the bride & groom along with 4 witnesses and we want the full legal ceremony (doing our own bouquet/boutt's & dinner at our AI).  Here's what we want, I'd love some help or references if anyone could:


-decorated beach palapa/gazebo

-little or no outside vendor fees (we have found a photog we love already)

-officiant with english translation

-legal service with all the required paperwork/bloodwork/legalization in country of origin (USA)


ETA: Privilege Aluxes is saying they can do the above for $1,400 USD but that seems pretty pricey, and it's not including the legalization in the USA... Trying to keep the cost down as we are still paying for a reception back home when we return. 


Thank you!

    • 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.
