How to decide where to get married?

Recommended Posts

I am like you. A co-worker did her wedding in Costa Rica (she's from that area though) last year so I didn't want to consider that area. I don't know much about DR and Mexico, but they are cheaper than Bahama and some other Caribbean places so you probably can start there. Talk to a TA too, they can give you really good suggestions on the location. welcome3.gif to the forum and good luck planning!!

Oh well!
i have curly hair too...i'm bringing LOTS of products, lol...it also depends on the time of year.

didn't dreams in punta cana just open recently? that could be the reason for the mixed reviews, but dreams in pv also has mixed reviews....definitely talk to a travel agent and see what (s)he has to say....

If I could leave the MIL home I would and it is a shame because she has only gotten this way since he started talking about getting engaged, but he is her BABY boy...27 haha

 

The Dreams in the Dominican was the old Sunscape the Beach. They are doing some renivations and the name changes sometime this month officially, but people have commented that the regular rooms are the gross rooms, and some of the photos of the mold and tarantulas are really gross.

 

I guess I just have to keep reading!Thanks everyone. My gf's mom did all of this when she got married, so I don't have anyone else that has done this. Once my place is set, I'm sure I will be able to relax!

so since I am not doing that (heehee), i've got to think there's a location that meets all MIL's requirements (blech). the girls on here are so helpful - i'm sure we can find something!
D I T T O !!! I love you Ann, you are so subtle :)

Man, that MIL sounds a little high maintenance. Maybe you just need to get her a prescription for some Xanax & then she'll get on whatever plane you tell here too!

First of all, I"m sorry that your MIL is making this difficult for you. It should be what YOu want, not what is appeasing to everyone else.

 

DR is a GREAT choice. They have awesome all-inclusives that are kid-friendly.
