It’s time to make your wedding dreams come true! Known for its majestic landscape of expansive white sand beaches and towering palms, it’s no wonder that Punta Cana is a popular vacation spot. Despite the number of resorts along the coastline, this region of the Dominican Republic still manages to feel like a secluded getaway, making it an extra romantic location for destination weddings. Our favorite Punta Cana wedding resorts offer unique ceremony venues that enhance the beauty of their surroundings. Here are our picks for a few of the 5 Best Punta Cana Wedding Venues.
NOW Onyx Punta Cana
NOW Onyx Punta Cana
Located in the quiet town of Uvero Alto, the beachfront NOW Onyx Punta Cana offers both couples and families a stylish and luxurious stay. The resort’s extensive layout includes five unique pools, gorgeous swim-out suites, and plenty of poolside decks for relaxing in the sun. In the midst of these attractive grounds, you’ll find a strikingly modern gazebo flanked by verdant palm trees. It’s one the most modern and best wedding venues in Punta Cana. What makes this destination wedding venue stand out is the aisle leading up to it: a tile walkway that passes through the center of a fountain. It’s no question why this ceremony space is one of the top Dominican Republic wedding venues on the market.

Paradisus Punta Cana
Paradisus Punta Cana
Just as its name suggests, the Paradisus Punta Cana is a lush, tropical paradise. The expansive property houses a wide variety of room categories, some of which are surprisingly affordable, each with its own individual brand of upscale decor. Gourmet dining options abound, including the Passion restaurant by world-renowned Michelin chef Martin Berasategui. Although it is located along the famously beautiful Bavaro Beach, the Paradisus Punta Cana is just as much known for its picturesque foliage. That’s why we recommend a wedding ceremony in the garden, the perfect blend of manicured hedges and local flora.
