    You can change the date if they have booked for the 27th at the latest and they get in early enough; you can always push the rehearsal dinner up to a later time.  But it’s awful that they changed the date, is there anything you can do to get an extra day?

    What part of the Dominican Republic are you getting married? 

    I’m dominican (and my wedding is going to be there in June). 

    I don’t think is going to be too hot. Is it an outside wedding?  I say change the date to the 28th, it will be fine.

    Punta Cana is so beautiful. And if its outdoors there might be a nice ocean breeze. I would be worried about the dress regardless of the time if its heavy. 

    I’m thinking it will be fine, the hotel should have a backup anyways because there is always a possibility of rain (crossing my fingers that it doesn’t happen). 

    The heat is bearable, and there is not much difference between 4 and 6 besides the sun but by that time it won’t be right above your head.

    I would keep the date.

    Here are my reasons:

    1. Cooler

    2. For the guests arriving on the 27th

    3. You guys will enjoy your time there, married or not. You’re spending the same amount of days there anyway.

    4. It just seems easier to keep things as they are for invites, scheduling, etc.

    If you already have invites I definitely would keep the date the same. If some of your guests are coming the 27th it might be nice for them to have a day of relaxing before the wedding day. And does it really matter you only have two days of being married together at the resort, you’re married for the rest of your life.

    I agree – you should keep the date you planned originally. You’ve got your whole lives together 🙂
