Hello ,i have been reading the archives about weddings not at an all inclusive resort,has there been any current posts? I am looking for any up to date information or suggestions anyone may have. We are currently in the planning stages of a December wedding ,to take place in or near Cabarete. Can a ceremony be done on the beach if you are not doing a wedding package at one of the resorts? How do i go about arranging these services? Is this something i can plan independently ? Any advise would be great .
