Hi ladies!

 

We are planning a wedding in the Dominican Republic next July/August and are exploring our wedding options now. We haven't yet decided on a resort, but hopefully will in the next couple of weeks, (we're waiting on our TA to get back to us with pricing). I originally thought we'd definitely have a on resort wedding, however, after looking at off resort venues like Jellyfish, Huracan Cafe, and Kukua Beach Club I am reconsidering. Are there any ladies who've had their weddings at an off resort location who are willing to share what they spent on their weddings, what was included, how many guests, open bar choices, etc? I've gotten pricing for a couple of the places but it seems very piecemeal, and I would just like to know what a real bride spent on everything.

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!!

    There are many beautiful off resort locations in Punta Cana!!! 

    I've photographed weddings in many off resort venues in Punta Cana and the price really depends on the venue (if there is a fee to book the whole restaurant, etc.), number of guests, if you want open bar the whole night and all the extras in terms of entertainment. 
    Feel free to e-mail me at julia@juliaeskin.com and I can give you the info for the wedding coordinator who works directly with most of the venues in Punta Cana.

     

    Some options for the off resort weddings:

     

    Kukua Restaurant:

     

    La Cana Golf Club:
     
     
    Playa Blanca Restaurant (Punta Cana group)
     
    Jellyfish Restaurant:
     
    Secret Beach:

    @FutureMrsGrabs I too wanted a wedding off resort. I definitely feel like they try to weasel the money out of you any way they can. We are staying at the NOW Larimar and are using La Barcaza, 2 story wedding boat for our ceremony and reception. We will be there August 7-16th so I can definitely let you know about La Barcaza.

     

    They pick you up at your resort, you have the option of either getting married up top or they take you to a completely private beach (no one sunbathing 50 feet from your wedding!) then you get back on the boat for your reception/dinner/cruising around. They also stop at the natural pool so everyone can go swimming if that what you want. I don't have the absolute final pricing yet but it's pretty cheap for what you get I think.

     

    Let me know if you would like more details once I get back! Good Luck!

    My fiance was wanting to have our wedding on Macao Beach instead of at a resort. We are still researching, but if we come across anything, we will share! Good luck in your hunt!
