Poll: Best Fall Month To Have A Wedding In Punta Cana (Bavaro)?

Recommended Posts

Need your help ladies! I am torn as to what month to have my wedding. Given that hurricane season runs June through November, it's really not practical to rule out that entire timeframe. However I need to plan the wedding for the Fall, and from what I've heard and read, the height of hurricane season seems to be August/September/October! I am considering September, October, or November, to make sure I give guests ample notice. But there are pros and cons of each, when you think about weather (rain, storms, heat), proximity to the holiday season, and overall convenience for guests. 

 

September seems like an ideal time, but it's one of the the hottest, rainiest months, and prone to hurricanes! October seems OK since it's supposed to be a bit cooler and less rainy, but it's still prone to hurricanes, and getting closer to the holidays (not to mention halloween. I definitely do't want a wedding close to halloween!) And in November the weather is better overall, but then you start getting close to Thanksgiving and the holiday season, so I feel like less people are willing to travel around that time. They may be saving for the holidays or already traveling close to this time! November is also my birthday month.

 

So everything considered, which month would you say is the best [Fall] month for a wedding in Punta Cana?

 

  • September
  • October 
  • November

I got married in Jamaica in October and it was great! What about doing early November, right after Halloween? Maybe Nov 2,3, or 4th? The rates are still quite low. We were told high season doesn't actually start until Dec 15th so you should still be able to get a good group rate. You miss Halloween but still have plenty of time before Thanksgiving. I'm Canadian so Thanksgiving for us is early October. You could also look at the last week in October right before Halloween. We were told Jamaica rarely gets hit by hurricanes, but we just decided to take our chances. The weather was fantastic and it was still really hot. I think we had one day where we had a couple of showers, and that was it. Hope that helps. Good luck!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
