Engaged And Overwhelmed!

Recommended Posts

Hello there! I recently got engaged to the love of my life. We've been together for almost 15 years now (May 10). Yeah, I know... it took him that long while I patiently waited. But on the other hand, we were both busy with education, career, etc., plus, we are doing everything backwards anyway: got a house, cats. So, it's more of a formality now. However, all our family and friends are exhilarated and cannot wait for the big day which we haven't even set yet. 


So, I just started to look and I am already overwhelmed. I really want to have a budget friendly, stress free destination wedding with our closest and dearest people. So, now my head spins as to whether to do it in Mexico Playa or Cancun areas or in Dominican republic? What month should we pick? And I probably need a wedding planner/agent as well.


Any suggestions or inputs are greatly appreciated.

its all very overwhelming.. lol I used destinationswedding.com they showed me a bunch of resorts ( all inclusive ) and the more options I saw the harder it is to make a decision of where do I really want to get married... anyways I ended up choosing Royalton Riviera Maya, and thanks to my wedding coordinator she made it super smooth,... just be aware of the prices of the packages and how many people does it include and the reviews of that particular resort... cant go wrong with any of them im sure.. anyways good luck!

    • 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.
