    Corrin and I (Chris) are new to the forum, I happed to stubble across it through my friend "Google." We have been trying to find our destination wedding location and have started by looking at Paradisus Palma Real, Paradisus Punta Cana, and recently Hideaway Beach Resort. Of course we are not stuck on the DR, we just started there. We will consider any and all places, as we are also researching the Outer Banks in North Carolina and Florida locations, and places like Mexico, Jamaica, etc.

    I have read some of the information you have here at the forum and you all are very nice in helping. We look forward to joining the community :)

    Basic information: 60 guests max plus us 2 (but we'll probably have 40-50 attend), half live in Illinois half from New Jersey, flexible wedding date but hopefully Spring 2009, all of our guests will be over 21 except for one 2-year old, and we are looking to have a beach wedding. We also want to try and keep the expenses low for our guests who are flying in and coming to our special day.

    Our budget for our wedding and honeymoon will probably be around the $20,000 area. I know several of you have researched many of these places, any advice or help would be much appreciated that would fit our needs.

    Corrin and Chris

      to the forum. You have a lot of searching through this site to do and that might help you decide on a location. I got married in Cuba so I can't help you, but plenty of people on here got married or are getting married in DR, Mexico and Jamaica. Happy planning.

        Dominican Republic is amazing. And Punta Cana is absolutely gorgeous. It is so picturesque, so you have definitely made the right choice. :)
        I frequent the DR and there are just not enough words to describe how lovely it is. Congrats :)

          We are marrying at Paradisus Punta Cana and honeymooning at the Palma Real. Your guest list expectations and budget are similar to our ... and that being said Palma Real will most likely be out of your budget. That's why we decided to honeymoon there instead.

          We have close to 50 adults confirmed thus far and 2 kids (expecting 55-60 adults and 6 kids total). We are very happy with choosing PPC and have had good luck with our wedding coordinator there as well.

            my money is always on dreams resorts. realy exceptional quality. atleast in tulum mexico. the beaches in the DR are probably my favorite almost anywhere. its all crushed coral so they stay cooler even in the hot sun. i icant lend much more help on locations . i stayed at the RIU there and it was nice but not the nicest ever. i had no real complaints though.

              to the forum! I have recently decided on the Domincian Republic. And the more and more I research, the more I love it! There is plenty of information this forum about all the locations you listed, so go ahead and browse through them, you're sure to find something you're in love with.

              Congrats & Happy Planning
