Destination Weddings Attract Couples To Dominican Republic #GoDomRep

Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism

With eight international airports throughout the country and nonstop
 flights available on multiple airlines from the United States, Dominican
 Republic offers an ease of access that makes it a natural selection for
 couples planning a destination wedding. World-class properties offer
 on-site, personal wedding planners to handle all of the day-of details,
 making sure any wedding day is worry-free.

"Weddings in Dominican Republic are truly magical, offering couples a variety of settings to celebrate
 the start of their lives together," said Magaly Toribio, marketing advisor for the Dominican Republic
 Ministry of Tourism. "Our hotels, tour operators and wedding vendors are adept at anticipating the
needs of family travel groups, making Dominican Republic a wonderful destination for wedding groups
 both big and small."

What's your wedding style? Whether you've always pictured a sunset ceremony on the beach or
 dreamed of a traditional wedding in a church that's rich with historic beauty, Dominican Republic
 has something to fit every couple's personal taste and budget.

Old-World Charm: A destination wedding doesn't have to mean forfeiting the formality of a
 traditional ceremony. Marry at the ornateCatedral Primada de America in the first city of the
 new world, the Colonial City within Dominican Republic's capital of Santo Domingo. Cobblestone
 streets harken back to the colonial days to create memories that will last a lifetime. Also in the
 Colonial City, Iglesia de las Mercedes is a majestic church built more than 500 years ago that
 provides the perfect backdrop for an elegant Catholic ceremony. You can also plan your nuptials
 in Convento de los Dominicos, a 16th-century building, or book your big day at the Museo de
 las Casas Reales, a museum that once served as the Spanish governor's royal court. For historic
 charm outside of the capital, Catholic couples can say "I do" in Altos de Chavón, a replica
 of a 16th-century Mediterranean village in the La Romana province. You'll walk down the aisle in
 a ceremony in St. Stanislaus Church while overlooking the Chavón River.

Natural Nuptials: Eco-conscious couples will find their own slice of paradise in Dominican Republic.
 The Samaná Peninsula, known for lush, unspoiled nature and magnificent beaches, takes couples
 off the beaten path and into one of Dominican Republic's hidden natural gems. Lovebirds can plan
 a wedding in quiet Las Galeras, located at the tip of the peninsula and home to numerous small
 hotels and bed & breakfasts—perfect for an intimate wedding or honeymoon escape. For couples
 seeking a beachside city vibe, Las Terrenas delivers, offering a mix of distinctive restaurants and
 bars alongside beautiful white sand beaches dotted with picturesque pastel wooden fishing boats.
 After the wedding, escape to Los Haitises National Park, located just south of the Samaná
 Peninsula. Enjoy a boat tour of the mangroves and find yourself surrounded by countless species
 of birds, plants and mammals. On Dominican Republic's north coast, thePuerto Plata province also
 offers unique natural beauty of its very own, set against a backdrop of mountains and miles of
 coastline. The area is a hub for thrill-seekers, and adventurous couples will fall in love all over
 again while climbing the 27 Waterfalls of Damajuagua and cascading back down by jumping off
cliffs or sliding down water chutes.

Seaside Sophistication: Find your fairytale all-inclusive in Punta Cana, which was named
the #1 destination in the Caribbean in 2016 by the TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards.
 Azure waters and powder-white beaches bring weddings here to life, with hotels offering packages
designed to fit all tastes and budgets. Wedding planners help couples work within their budgets to
 map out every detail, including day-of itineraries, flowers, menus and even hair and makeup.
 Beyond Punta Cana, couples flock to La Romana for chic accommodations along the water.
 Casa de Campo is a favorite getaway among celebrities, and for good reason—the resort and
 villa complex gives couples exclusive access to La Romana's marina, along with gourmet
 restaurants, world-class golf courses and beautiful private beaches. Just off the coast, day
 trips to Saona Island and Catalina Island offer secluded paradise for honeymooners and newlyweds.

Cosmopolitan Chic: Plan a stylish wedding in the vibrant capital city of Santo Domingo.
 The JW Marriott Santo Domingo is located in the city's high-end shopping district. Work
 with an entire team of wedding specialists for a memorable and luxurious day at this trendy
 destination, where you and your guests will also be able to take advantage of close proximity to
 the commercial district, the colonial zone and the airport. Hotel el Embajador is also conveniently
 located in the capital, just a stone's throw away from museums, shops and restaurants. Couples
 can work with an on-site planner to map out every detail of their special day, planning a ceremony
 or reception in the hotel's elegant indoor or outdoor spaces. In Santo Domingo's historic
 Colonial City, the Hostal Nicolas de Ovando offers a romantic ambiance for both weddings and
 honeymoons. Once the home of Santo Domingo's founder, the hotel dates back to 1502 and
provides the perfect combination of history, charm and upscale amenities.

There's no need for cold feet when planning your dream wedding in Dominican Republic.
