A wedding on the shore of a beautiful beach, with the waves and coconut trees framing the images we want to immortalize in the memory, is the dream of many couples. The virgin beaches and turquoise seas of the Dominican Republic are a difficult scenario to overcome for a different, unique wedding.
Indeed, the Dominican Republic is not only a favorite destination for honeymoon trips; for years it has also positioned itself as an attractive destination for weddings and the reason is twofold: on the one hand, its impressive natural beauty, and on the other, the extraordinary facilities it offers when it comes to organizing the link.
The luxurious resorts of the Dominican Republic have wedding planner departments and offer specialized packages and services for the celebration of weddings – both religious and civil – and the ceremonies of renewal of marriage vows. Its professionals are responsible for helping and advising the couple on everything necessary, from the management of marriage certificates, to the choice of floral arrangements or the preparation of the personalized bridal cake. Every detail is taken care of, pampered, so that the final result exceeds the expectations of the excited couple and, of course, also of their guests, who will never forget this wedding different from any other.
“The extraordinary quality / price ratio offered by wedding organizers and venues in the Dominican Republic has allowed our destination to become the choice of many couples who decide to get married and start their honeymoon in our beautiful country,” says Karyna Font-Bernard, director of the Tourism Office of the Dominican Republic in Spain and Portugal. Certainly, the competitive prices offered by the Dominican nuptial sector are a decisive aspect.
Because of its magnificent infrastructures and marketing of the wedding offer, it is not surprising that the Dominican Republic has been ranked among the 20 Best Honeymoon Destinations and one of the 12 Places to Renew the Votes, according to the prestigious specialized publication Weddings Honeymoons.
The most romantic locations
The paradisiacal beaches of white and fine sand are a wonderful possibility when choosing the exact location of the ceremony. But it should be noted that the Dominican Republic has several options to organize a unique wedding.
Thus, the ceremony and / or the banquet can also take place in the middle of a tropical garden, in a beautiful colonial patio or even in one of the churches with more history in the country, such as the Convent of the Dominicans or the Cathedral Primada of America. This magnificent temple of Santo Domingo, the first cathedral of the Americas, was built at the beginning of the 16th century in what is now the heart of the Colonial City. Inside, the remains of Admiral Christopher Columbus were found in the 19th century.
For the bride and groom who adore the colonial rustic style, a really unique possibility is to celebrate their wedding in Altos de Chavón, impressive replica of a sixteenth century Mediterranean town. It is located in the province of La Romana, on a hill over the Chavón river, from which it takes its name and from which it gives fabulous panoramic views framed by the profuse vegetation.
The Tourism Website of the Dominican Republic (Godominicanrepublic.com) dedicates a specific section to the destination’s facilities for the celebration of weddings, including a Wedding and Honeymoon Guide where, in addition to the best locations for a special ceremony, the requirements and documentation that the couple needs to marry, whether religious or civil, are collected.
