Newly engaged!!! YAY! I have worked in the formal part of the wedding industry here in Texas and am really wanting to just get away from the hustle and bustle of a big Texas wedding. I have been to and LOVE the Dominican Republic but am seriously considering Jamaica since I have heard there is a lot of "One stop shop" resorts there. Any input on the best resorts, photography, videography, and officiants would be much appreciated for Jamaica.


Peace and Love!

We are getting married at the Royalton White Sands in Jamaica May 2016. We too originally wanted Dominican, however because we really wanted to have a legal ceremony there, getting married in Dominion is much harder. Plus we are attending a wedding this November to Punta Cana and wanted to chose somewhere different as some of the guests will be attending both. Jamaica is probably the easiest country to get legally married in. You do not need any documents translated and only need to be in the country for 48 hours.


We are bringing our own local photographer. I am from Canada, so with the dollar being so bad, it was actually cheaper to do this. We have hired our videographer yet, but we have been looking at Gary Samuels

    • 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.
