My fiancé and I got engaged on May 31, 2013. We're super excited and ready to get the ball rolling. I am aiming for 2014 since I want to give our guests as much time as possible, but we are also not getting any younger. I am 99% set on Jamaiica as I stopped on day trip while on a cruise - it's stunning and the locals were very friendly. I want to keep my costs reasonable, but am afraid that if too many people come (the more the merrier) that it will cost an arm and a leg. Most resorts I've researched have wedding packages for around a max of 20 people. I'm not to concerned about upgrading since the reason that I want a DW is to avoid the "expected" wedding stuff (cocktail hour, speeches, endless decor), but need a free/affordable package that has the option of adding additional guests. The photographs are very important to me, and if at all possible I would like to use the resort photogrher. Anyone have any recommendations or reviews? Also I want to pick a time of year when the weather is relatively dry (not rainy or hurricane season) but also avoid crowds/price hikes during peak spring break times. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :)

    • 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.
