Hello

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. My fiancé and I just decided that we are going to book with Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Cana. We went over prices on how much we have to save & everything was overwhelming. Any thoughts? I also wanted a beach wedding but I want everything that I could have back home and more. I want to make sure that my guest are happy & enjoy their experience. I want to make sure everything is prefect. How do I plan when I am just so far away? Where do I start?

Both of those steps will get you well on your way to the wedding of your dreams!

@@MelissaRose Welcome and congrats!! It's great that you found this site - it's SUPER helpful! It's great that you booked a place - for me that was one of the hardest parts - committing to a location!

 

I'm not that far into my planning process but I agree with the others - read up on a ton of stuff on the site and find a TA! I recently began working with one and I feel a little more at ease. I'm sure your chosen resort has a wedding coordinator who will help you with planning - making it much easier then planning everything from scratch for a local wedding! Your coordinator will provide you options for everything that you need and assist for anything you want tweaked to fit your vision!

 

For me, I'm not planning on using any outside vendors so that makes things a little easier - but if you aren't a fan of your resorts photographer or DJ you can find out about other resources on this site! For me - getting a binder, organizing my ideas and everything that was sent to me by my coordinator and making lists has helped me not feel so overwhelmed. Good luck!
