Love is in the air! And not just because it’s almost Valentine’s Day… But also because I’m sharing a beautiful Jellyfish wedding in Punta Cana that will make you want to fall in love all over again. 

Below I’ll tell you about Jellyfish Restaurant. Then we’ll discuss the timing for your wedding day. And finally, I’ll show you a snapshot of Courtney and Ryan’s wedding. You won’t want to miss it!

So let’s get started!


Jellyfish Restaurant

Jellyfish is a beautiful beach restaurant and private wedding venue in Punta Cana. It is one of the best places in the Dominican Republic to plan your dream wedding. They’ll take care of every detail to ensure your wedding day is just as magical as you’ve imagined it to be.

You can customize everything about your wedding day from the decor to the food, drinks, desserts, music, special events, and so much more! Your options are endless. 

Their wedding planning team is fantastic, and you’ll be blown away by their dedication on your wedding day. Everyone is there to ensure your day runs smoothly and you and all your guests are having a wonderful time. 

Plus, the wedding decor at Jellyfish is stunning! If you want to wow your guests with beautiful centerpieces, a gorgeous ceremony arch, and a dazzling sweetheart table, this is the wedding venue for you. Their team is so talented, and the venue looks amazing every single time.

The best part is:

Jellyfish already has everything you’ll need for your wedding day day. A gorgeous venue, delicious food, wedding cake, wedding decor, flowers, a DJ or band, and an MC. They even offer extras if you want to wow your guests with a crazy hour, fire show, or cigar rolling. Forget about having to contact dozens of vendors and stressing about every little detail up until your wedding day. It doesn’t have to be that hard!


Planning Your Wedding Day Timeline

It’s common for brides to feel uneasy about the timeline for their wedding day – but it’s really not as big of a deal as you’re making it out to be in your head. Since you’re getting married at a resort or private venue in Punta Cana, the day will pretty much run itself. 

And you don’t have to create the timeline all on your own. Your photographer, hair and makeup artist, and wedding coordinator will all help you with the timing of your day.

So what do you need to plan?

First, you’ll want to choose your ceremony time, and then you’ll work backward from there. Typically, I recommend starting your ceremony two hours before sunset. This way, you’ll have soft, beautiful lighting during the ceremony, and you’ll have plenty of time to take family photos and couple photos with natural light before the sun goes down.

You’ll decide if you want to have a first look or wait to see each other until you’re walking down the aisle. If you’re doing a first look, you’ll need to start everything a little earlier.

Then, you’ll work with your photographer to decide what time your getting ready photos will start and confirm with your hair and makeup artist what time you’ll need to start to be ready in time. 

Finally, you’ll decide the order of your wedding reception. Normally, it starts with introductions, then dinner, speeches, cake cutting, and the first dances. From there, you’ll go into the party/dance portion of the night. Followed by the bouquet and garter toss and any extra special events (like a fire show or crazy hour) if that’s something you’ll include in your day.

And that’s it! Your timeline is planned! 


Jellyfish Wedding in Punta Cana – Courtney & Ryan

You’re going to swoon over Courtney and Ryan’s wedding photos. They had such a beautiful wedding! Courtney and her bridesmaids got ready in the air-conditioned bridal suite at Jellyfish, while Ryan and his groomsmen got dressed on the beach. Then Courtney did a special first look with her dad before heading to meet her groom.

During the couple’s first look, Ryan brought a flask and some customized ‘bride and groom’ shot glasses, and they took a pre-wedding shot before turning around to see each other for the first time. This is a fun spin on the first look and helped them loosen up a bit before the ceremony!

Finally, it was time for the main event. Ryan and Courtney exchanged personal vows under the palm trees, surrounded by their closest family and friends. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Next, we did family photos, bridal party photos, and couple photos before heading to the reception. Instead of doing dinner first, Courtney and Ryan decided to start with their first dances and parent dances. They didn’t want to feel rushed, and this worked better for their schedule. Our coverage ended with some heartfelt speeches, cake cutting, and a messy icing kiss. It was another gorgeous Jellyfish wedding in Punta Cana!
