Tips for planning an intimate outdoor elopement in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Punta Cana is a beautiful backdrop for couples looking to elope. Like small weddings, eloping is a huge opportunity to toss the bloated guests lists and potentially enormous price tag associated with a typical wedding day. But even when scaled down, it deserves some planning and consideration. There are many things to consider when planning your elopement and in the beginning stages things can feel pretty daunting. No worries though, I’m here to clear the decks and help dial in your focus. 

Here are my key tips for planning an elopement: 

Here are my key tips for planning an elopement in Punta Cana

With or Without Guests

Do you plan on having some family and friends with you or would you prefer a small, intimate ceremony with just the two of you?  There’s no right or wrong, it’s just a matter of your own preference.  I’ve seen elopements with 30 guests right down to just the couples themselves.

Narrow the Field 

Great venues and great vendors book up fast so once you’ve done your due diligence and narrowed the field, pull the trigger and lock up your date with them. Be sure to speak with your vendors ahead of time with a video chat or phone call. This allows you to get a feel for them and to make sure you’re a match for one another. 

Book a Photographer in Punta Cana

It goes without saying that documenting such an important day in your lives is a no-brainer — however even moreso with an elopement. Having great photos will let your family and friends feel like they were there. Not to mention, those photos are like your return ticket to that amazing moment in your lives.

Announcement Party 

Instead of people finding out through the facebook, you might want to throw a little shindig shortly after the big day. When it comes to family and close friends it’s important they hear the news from you. So have some fun and let those closest to you join in.
