    Hi Everyone!

    I am recently engaged and we quickly decided we will have a destination wedding in Punta Cana. Yay! We have narrowed down the search a bit but am stuck deciding between a few of them.

    Just wondering how and why you chose the resort you did.

    Thanks for your input!

      & CONGRATS!


      I've been obsessed with Hawaii since I went when I was about 9. I've been 3 more times since & since I gave up my dream to go there for college I just knew I couldn't give this up (although for the first 3-4 months of engaged life I was going to have it in Philadelphia)


      I picked Maui because it's our favorite island & has the most to do & we love the resort


      I picked Gannon's after changing my mind of the location on this island. To give you a little info about Maui, the whole island is beautiful, but the South side is better for pictures & special occasions, however, our resort is on the West side. I was going to have the Wedding on the West side as well, but I changed to South after seeing pictures & reading other people's opinions.


      I guess it depends what in your heart. Where have you been? What's in your budget? What is your style (I'm a Hawaiian girl, without the blood- from my bed room (at my parents house) to my favorite colors & flowers)


      Pick a general area & study the hell out of pictures & reviews!

        I picked the Hard Rock for many reasons.

        1) It seemed like it would have the most to do

        2. I absolutely love the Colin Cowie Collection.

        3) Their package included the most guests


        In addition to that they were offering free functions if you book a certain amount of rooms or nights. So I would say find the resort that fits your needs and your budget. I think they are all beautiful and I struggled between Dreams Punta Cana and Hard Rock but Hard Rock was in the lead! Hope this helps!

          My dear ladies!!! 


          Rob & I got married at Dreams Palm Beach & Jellyfish in April 2012, it was the most amazing time of our lives.


          It was even more amazing because we spend most of our time on the other side - we're wedding photographers here in Punta Cana (and all around the world!) This is our 2nd full time season living in the Dominican Republic, so we have lots of awesome tips to share. 


          These CONFESSIONS are some reflections, tips & tricks regarding choosing a resort & venue for your Big Day. It was such a labour of love, I truly hope it's of value to you! If you have any questions about choosing the perfect resort, please don't hesitate to reach out. We always have up-to-date information.
