The Struggle Of Looking For A Resort!

Recommended Posts

Me and my fiancee are currently looking at resort for a destination wedding in Early 2019.

 

We are looking at both Dominican Rep and Mexico as possible destinations but are open to other countries not named Cuba (nothing wrong with Cuba, just been there way to many times).

 

We are looking for a nice resort to do a beach wedding, that is cost effective to both us and our guest.

 

 

Can any one suggest any resorts that I could be looking at...any also if there is a specific time in Feb/Mar/Apr that we can do it that would give us the best price?

 

 

 

Thank you for all your help!!!

My fiance & I are getting married March 2018 in Riviera Maya at the Barcelo palace. Will let u know how it turns out. We have 40 people attending. Our coordinator has been amazing! Answers every email in detail within 24 hours...so far extremely happy. One of our meals we got to choose from for our reception is steak & lobster! No brainer...we picked that. Extremely accommodating

Congratulations on your engagement!  There are lots of great all inclusive options in Mexico and the Dominican Republic! Since you're located in Canada your best bet is to work with a Canadian TA. Our Canadian affiliate is Darci Huhn and you can contact her at darci@travelbyplatinum.com. She is great and will be able to provide suggestions and pricing. Best wishes with your planning!! TA Patty

Hi... Did you ever check out or inquire about the Barcelo Bavaro Palace in Punta Cana? Im interested in that one currently, however its so difficult to find pictures of what they offer vs what I should upgrade. I keep reading tons of older reviews.. and its get overwhelming and confusing.

I think we've finally narrowed down our resort to Majestic Colonial, Punta Cana. With ten rooms booked you get a free "symbolic" ceremony...and there's a lot included in that package as well.  More than you'd expect with a free wedding.  haha....  Their facilities look amazing and reviews I've read are great.  They just got done with a renovation.  And the group prices we were offered for the facilities were great.  

 

@@Cookies1986 ...I highly recommend @TA Patty.  We've been in communication with her and she's amazing.  She's extremely informative on a lot of the resorts and gave us a great group rate for Majestic Colonial.

Hi I’m currently planning for a DR wedding too this September. I have looked at 7 all inclusive resorts, their wedding packages and emailed each one of them. They all look good, I just need to know about the resort based on their service, cleanliness and food. If anybody can give me more insights, it be nice and helpful for my decision

A year has passed - hopefully this is all organised now.  Where are you going to get married?

    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics! 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
