Has anyone gotten married here?

 

I asked before in Newbies, but seriously considering it now, but recently heard mixed reviews. Now I'm wondering if I should choose someplace else.

Have you read through the resort reviews on the site? I'm sorry - I don't have any info on the resort. What about talking to your travel agent and see if they have any info they could add? They're supposed to be the pros for that kind of thing. As well, check out the forums here and read through them and see what brides have said.

 

Good luck!

@@acw271011 I don't have a travel agent yet, for a couple of reasons. I kind of wanted to pick the place first (but I don't know if that's the right order?). Also, the two travel agents I spoke with so far, after I was very clear I was not interested in sandals, kept trying to push sandals. I thanked them for their time, and told them I was not interested in using someone who wasn't listening to me.

 

I feel like the more I try and plan this, the more confused I get. I wanted to do a DW because I thought I would feel less pressure. Hah hah.

Well there is a very easy solution to that!!  Get in touch with the owners of this site, BDW. They're experts in destination weddings and have special relationships with several of the resort chains. I would highly recommend getting in touch with them, and telling them what you're looking for. Absolutely get a TA to help you. There are so many resorts out there, it's hard to field through them all. A TA that has experience will be an invaluable asset to you as you go through your planning process.

 

Check them out. You lose nothing by asking! Here's the link:

there are some agencies that really push certain resorts ONLY but we work with or clients to find a property that works for them.  There have been many times that the resort that would be perfect for the bride and groom was one that we did not work with but it was the right choice so I recommended the bride and groom book it (even if they could not use Wright Travel as their agency)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
