    Hi Everyone. 

    I recently got engaged and am looking to get married in the Dominican Republic. Both my fiance and I are of Dominican background and having the wedding there would just be amazing since our families living in the Dominican would be able to attend. 

     

    I have been looking at Now and Dreams resorts in Punta Cana. I also have looked at JellyFish and Huracan restaurants. I am so lost! I have no idea where to start. 

     

    I was wondering if anyone here is using any of these venues? Maybe you can help me go in the right direction. We plan on getting married August 2017. 

     

    also, Is anyone here a UVC member? My fiance and I got a membership and were wondering if they offer any further discounts for any of the AM resorts. 

     

     

    Any information from anyone would be extremely helpful! 

     

     

    Thanks in advance and happy planning!

        @Kcespedes Congrats on your engagement,

         

        The best place to start is to get a professional involved . If you ended up with the resort wedding. then contact a TA. So they can assist you with group logistics.  If your wedding is at the private location then look for a wedding planner.  

         

        You already have one thing figured out the destination.   have you decided on your budget yet? also what is the estimation on the guests number?

         

        Happy Planning!

        @Kcespedes Hi! Welcome and congrats! The first thing I would suggest is a budget and a guest list!

         

        After deciding on a budget and guest list, deciding on location, I contacted the hotel directly and got in contact with the wedding coordinator. Fi and I had already decided on a date, so after locking down our date/deposit, I got my travel agent, and she the one to negotiate my room block.

          HI there,

          Welcome to this site. I haven't been on here in a long time. My husband and I got married April 17, 2015 in Dominican Republic at Melia Caribe Tropical. The ladies on this site will be very helpful to you as they all have helped me so much in my decisions. I, like you, had no idea where to even start. 

          Congratulations and best wishes to you and your fiance.


          Kristy and Nathan
