Planning My Dw And Need Some Destination Suggestions!

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

Just came across this app and I'm hoping all of you wonderful people can help me out?

 

We've been engaged for a few years but never got round to getting married due to having children etc However, we have now decided on a destination wedding. We are looking to get married in 2017 which I know seems a long time off but we'll be able to book up in May 2016.

 

It's always been a dream of ours to go to the Caribbean so we are looking at Dominican Republic as a possibility. I really like the look of Dreams La Romana. After looking into the cost of the paper work etc it's looking like it's going to be a bit too expensive. Especially as we will only be able to go during the summer school holidays.

 

I am now considering other destinations such as Greece, Mexico, Italy etc

 

Our ideal destination would be:

• All inclusive

• Cater for children of all ages

• 4 or 5 star hotel

• Opportunity to explore local area

• Scuba diving, paragliding

• Beach wedding location

• soft sand beach

• Family rooms that sleep upto 5

 

Reasonable price, Beaches is far too expensive!

 

All information, suggestions and ideas greatly appreciated.

 

Kind regards

MrsM2be :-)

First of all congrats!!! I'm actually getting married at Dreams La Romana July 2016. Still waiting on a confirmation of date. I found the price to be not much more than other all inclusive resorts we've stayed at. Depending on where you are coming from will determine airfare price a lot. However I would suggest Cozumel or the Riveria Maya (playa del Carmen). I've been to both for scuba diving. - Cozumel is a bit cheaper

Good Luck!!

Thanks!

 

We're from the UK so it's quite pricey!

 

How are you finding your planning with the wedding coordinator at Dreams? I've read quite a lot of good reviews about Dreams.

 

I'll have a look at those hotels thanks.

I realize this suggestion isn't in your dream locations, but Riveria Maya offers everything you're looking for.  Email Elizabeth "Cookie" Randall, she will take great care of you: erandall@destinationweddings.com.  We chose El Karisma Resorts, visited in Nov 2014 and were blown away.

Just starting out so not sure yet. My travel agent has been sort of the middle man so far on getting group rate prices and dates (still waiting - been a week).

My dream would be to get married in Italy or Greece! But just not feasible from the West Coast of Canada  :( A lot of people say that Cancun/Riviera Maya is more reasonably priced than other Caribbean destinations, but I'm afraid I have not compared. Have you looked at Cuba? It tends to be a lot cheaper from Canada, and if you have no American guests, it's not an issue "politically". But I haven't been to Cuba myself, so can't comment. I'm sure you will find something that suits you perfectly, but it can take time and perseverance! (Note that it seems like people find Jamaica to be more expensive.)

I'm from the UK and we've always wanted to go to the Caribbean. I have had a look at some hotels in Cancun and I'm impressed. All of our guests will be from the UK.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
