Advice For Brides Looking For A Location - Or Brides Who Have Already

Recommended Posts

Congrats brides! I just replied to a thread with the below but I also wanted to post this as a new thread in case it can help someone else.

I know picking the location to have our dream destination wedding was incredibly hard because we also had a budget.
We went all out with a 5* resort that our guests are still talking about. Everything was perfect.

We did the actual wedding offsite at a restaurant next door - WAY more personal than the converter belt of resort brides 3 times a day with tourists gawking at them. We gave our guests the cutest beach bags filled with goodies and we had photo/video for the whole thing. Best part was that our guests loved the location so much that many chose it for their next vacation...that is the best compliment. Between my husband and I we have traveled to all the usual spots of Mexico (all over), Cuba (all over), Florida (all over), Bahamas (Gran Bahama, Nassau), Barbados, Bermuda, and Dominican and this is seriously the best place where the people treat you well, the food is incredible and plentiful, the entertainment is great, the beaches are gorgeous and the price is right....


Location: Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Resort: Luxury Gran Bahia Principe Esmeralda (superior service with butler included)
Ceremony/Reception Venue: Kukua Restaurant
Photographer/video: Blue Lagoon Studio
Honeymoon: Secrets Royal Beach (30 minutes away)
Guests giftbags: magicfeather.ca - they are presented to your guests at the airport upon arrival!
We were there total 12 days with the wedding week and 5 day honeymoon and it cost us $12000 for everything.

Hope this helps you! GOOD LUCK and enjoy the planning!!!

I defiantly looked into Punta Cana for my wedding, but coming from California the travel was more than we wanted so we settled on Riviera Maya.
