Married or going to be married at Grand Palladium Punta Cana?

Recommended Posts

I know, I think one of the most stressful part of this was trying to get in contact with Carolina to get answers, especially these last few months.

very annoying, but understandable... can't imagine just how much she actually does down there.

Thanks for the offer regarding the seamstress!! I actually just dropped it off on Friday to one that I heard was fantastic in Kingston (where I live). Thank you very much for the offer though!! :)

I though that's what I read, but was sweating when I read the above notes......I still haven't heard from Carolina, but the last e-mail I received from her she told me that the birth certificated needed to be translated......I hope she gets back to me soon, so in case I do need it legalized i have time to do so!!!!.....

same here, ceremony at 2... dinner at 6, beach party at 8 is what I'd like. I have mostly older guest, not sure they'll be able to stay up until 12, or at least don't want to force ppl to stay up that late.


Like Courtney said, don't worry about it Daneille, Just print everything and you should be fine, does look like the rest of us wasted $$ in getting the b-certificate legalized!!! sad.gif

I'll also be bring everything she wrote to me in e-mail..especially since we didn't have to put a deposit
