    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!!

      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.

      Cheers ~

        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.
