Hello Ladies!!

 

I'm recently engaged and planning my wedding in the DR, Punta Cana.  The beaches look incredible and my fiance and I are all about the Tropical Paradise feel for our wedding!  :)   I've doing quite a bit of research on the all-inclusive resorts (crazy how many there are, but love the options) and would love to receive recommendations for recent weddings in Punta Cana.  

 

I was in contact with Stephany at the Sanctuary Cap Cana, yet have just been informed that she is no longer with them and the resort is not available for weddings in April 2015, which was very disappointing since this resort was top on my list.  I loved the fact that it was more private and less of a "wedding factory" feel per se.  The new coordinator, Hector, did however recommend the other two sister properties of the resort (ALSO Luxury Village and ALSO Del Mar).  Has anyone gotten married or stayed at either of these two resorts?

 

Any feedback would be extremely helpful!!

 

Thanks so much!!

@@Feath07 I am getting married April 17, 2015 at the Melia Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana. I have never visited this resort but it looks beautiful for weddings. Some reasons why I chose this resort:

 

- Seems to be a lot of restaurant options for my guests (most of them are picky eaters, well my family anyway)

 

- The gardens are beautiful and would look great for pictures

 

- There is an adult only section to this resort which is where my fiancé and I will be staying. But it also gives people the opportunity to take their kids too. best of both worlds.

 

- They seem to have a good selection for wedding packages.

 

- The price was right when we booked

 

- The only downfall I would say of booking at this resort is what the resort charges for a fee in order for you to have an outside photographer. If you want to have an outside photographer come to take photos it costs $1000 just to get them on the resort. This I found was outrageous but we are booking HDC photography anyway and their prices are pretty reasonable.

@@Moments That Matter  Thanks, it's definitely keeping me busy, but a lot of fun as well.  I'm excited to talk with Patty at Wright Travel Agency, since all the reviews have been amazing and I could definitely use the help!


@@kcole123  Thanks so much for the feedback.  Do you know if they charge a fee if your photographers are also guests at your wedding?  My close friends are professional photographers and will be taking our photos as our wedding gift.

 

Also, what other resorts were you considering?
