    Hi all! We have decided that our wedding will be in Punta Cana in May 2015.  I have been researching resorts.  The top ones I am looking at are Now Larimar, Iberostar Resorts (Punta Cana, Dominica, or Bavaro), and Barcelo Punta Cana.  I have also been looking at Melia Caribe Tropical as well.   My main concern I have noticed when researching the resorts is the reception. I am confused as I see some resorts have reception options, but do not offer music/dancing after dinner. Is this a separate place you have to rent that is not included in most wedding packages here?  I have noticed some of the packages have dinner in restaurants that are not completley private if you do not have more than 45 people.  I was wondering if anyone has any advice about which resorts offer private recepitons/dj service. I would greatly appreciate any advice! Thanks in advance!

    @Cwright Majestic Colonial Punta Cana offers private reception/DJ services. I cannot confirm for the resorts you named as I never looked into them.

      We are getting married in December at Kukua Beach Club and staying at Now Larimar. We wanted a private location for both our ceremony and reception so that is why we have chosen to have ours off the resort. Our travel agent, Patty Jordan, is phenomenal. We told her what we were looking for in a resort for us and our guests, and she went above and beyond to helps us choose the perfect resort for us. She specializes in destination wedding travel in the Dominican Republic and is very familiar with most of the resorts down there. One of my best friends had her wedding and reception at the Jellyfish and stayed at Majestic Elegance. The Jellyfish was gorgeous!! Patty was also her travel agent!

        It depends on the resort, most do offer private reception for any number of guests (I've had a wedding party of 4 and they were able to book private reception on the beach), you always have to pay extra for it.  Ask your wedding coordinator for a quote and they will e-mail you the details.

         

        I also have a list of reception/wedding locations outside the resort, if you are looking for something more private.

         

        You can e-mail me at julia@juliaeskin.com and I will send you the list and photos of the locations.
