Wedding season is in full swing and when it comes to destination weddings, Now Larimar Resort & Spa in sunny Punta Cana has exactly what you need for an elegant and fun celebration.

Philadelphia graphic designer Stephanie Patterson put together the beautiful beach-inspired blue and white wedding invitations for Alex and AJ and documented their big day here on her blog. According to Stephanie’s thoughts on destination weddings, “that mix of vacation festivities and seaside “I Do’s” is always a good one.” The couple’s fabulous stationery suite included invitations, an RSVP postcard, addressed envelopes, wedding programs, social media signs, table numbers, door hangers, VIP all access guest passes, welcome letter and photo thank you cards. They truly thought of everything and that consistency really brings together their stylistic scheme! See the photos below for a taste of destination wedding inspiration.

Blogger Review: Chic Wanderlust Visits Now Larimar Resort & Spa

Trying to decide where to plan your next vacation? Reviews from former guests always help to set your mind at ease, and we have just the thing. Jasmine—better known as the force behind her travel blog, “Chic Wanderlust”—was a recent guest at Now Larimar Punta Cana, and she had wonderful experiences to share with us. Here are just a couple of excerpts of what she had to say about her stay:

“I had the pleasure of staying at Now Larimar Punta Canta, which is an all-inclusive resort set on its own private sand beach, with five outdoor swimming pools, a full service spa, and is in close proximity to popular attractions such as Dolphin Island and Bavaro Beach.”

The travelista was even impressed from the moment she walked into the resort:

I was handed a delicious cocktail and snack as I waited to check into my Deluxe Tropical view room, one that featured a jacuzzi and shower, furnished balcony, and a refreshed mini bar.”

Jasmine also loved the stunning beach at Now Larimar:

“The beach was absolutely gorgeous! White sand, clear water and hotel staff offering up drinks to guests.”
