    Your lucky we have been organizing my daughters wedding in playa dorada for nearly a year now.
    But there is nearly 80 going.40 Dom,s and 40 britt,s.

    Try visiting debbiesdominicantravel.com you need quite a lot of paperwork to take with you.

    Also i think in the south of the island the documentation is more involved therefore more expensive.

    As for the $500.00 does this include the registrar and marrage certificate and depends on how many flowers and does it include photo,s and a room upgade for the night with nuptial breakfast

    Most hotel packages are around $600-900.

    The cake we are having is about $400 dollars.
    The above are Dominican rates not tourist rates.

    That must be one B I G cake Ron. Who the heck is organising THAT for you???

    Have fun at your daughter's wedding & take a horsedrawn ride for all 80 people around Playa Dorada - that should cause a Hyde Park corner type bottleneck for the locals to talk about for YEARS!! - Grahame.

    Your not paying $500.00 for a cake...your paying for Flowers, decorations on the beach, a tent, cake, someone to perform the service...and other little things are included..I used the wedding planner there, she was absolutely great, helpful and wonderful to work with. I had beautiful peach roses, large lillys, and beautiful flowers covering a trellis and the tables and the chairs were all covered in white linen. Your paying for an actual wedding...you cant just have the wedding there and not expect the hotel to provide you any services. You might just want to have the wedding on a public beach then and arrange some place nice for dinner. I can tell you the Hamaca provided a beautiful setting and a beautiful wedding day for me.

    My daughter and new son are in the D.R. now tidying up a few loose ends and me and my better half will be arriving oct 3 for 4 weeks the rest of the family (40) turn up on the 17 oct wedding is on the 20 oct so we should WAKE up the occi allegro playa dorada for a few weeks and prob crystals night club in p.p on the stag night.


    P.S. still working out well cheap rather than U.K.

    Default getting married

    I thnkt the $500 for the package is not a bad deal at all, considering what you are getting, But you have to be ready to have all the papers in order and there are tons of them . I went through a nightmare , when we got married, as I didn't have the original birth certificate and we had to bribe the justice of piece and the attorney to get married, quite an experience, let me tell ya

    Best of luck !

    Can you please let me know the email of the wedding coordinator on site there.
    I have a lot of clients, that require the service , but I can only get them the properties and all the advise. Since I can't be there, I do need someone good, reliable and that speaks English to help them out with all the wedding arrangemets and take care of all the details like that.

    Thanks in advance
