      you'll be to early to do your papers now . I called WEDO (the people who will legalize and translate it) they will only do your paper work 30 days before your wedding date, so you can only send it in First week of March!!!
      They said the legalized and translated docs and only good for 30 days, that is why they wait so late.
      Are you sending the paper work to Ottawa to do them?!

      SO hopefully by the time we need to send our docs in, she'll be back!

        I got in touch with Arnaud about doing photography, and I wanted to negotiate prices and customize a package based on what I want. He seems a little pushy, telling me that I won't find better quality or service etc. He also told me I should get back to him right away as my wedding is close. I don't like feeling pressured or pushed to do anything. I'm not sure how I feel about it now.

          Hi Ladies,

          I've been kind of MIA for a while. I've lost my "groove" when it comes to this wedding planning...I can't imagine how people spend so much time planning a more "complicated" wedding. And I love planning things too! But I'm really struggling with this one for some reason. I keep telling my FI that I can't wait for it to be April 22nd - the day after our wedding!

          Anyhow, I'm back on the planning train since there really isn't much of an option! I'm not sure if it was mentioned here but Fiesta Hotels has a new wedding website:
          Sceneries - Palladium Weddings

          It's got most of the basic info we've all asked each other in one spot and the pictures of the ceremony locations - the new gazebo is so beautiful!!!

          So happy planning all, you guys keep me motivated!
          April 21st, 2010

            The same thing happened to me. I wanted to do table #s, and wanted to ask how many to a table. I'm not going to have them made if I don't know how many to make! I'll let you know if I get any kind of response, but the emails just keep bouncing back. The last time it happened she replied that she didn't know why something was wrong with her email because in the body of the email I mentioned how they kept bouncing back to me.

            Sungoddess - I booked arnaud, but i agree that you have some time, and dont' get pushed into something just because. I found out a few weeks later my sister's friend is a photog, and we could have had him shoot the whole thing, for about the same price, and probably more options. The good thing is I've read lots of good reviews about HDC in general.

              one more question - do you have to do Wedo if you are having the legal ceremony (i'm having a catholic one, which is therefore legal in DR). Can someone send me the requirements for legal marriages but for the US?

                I feel you girl. since i've been engaged, I've planned 2 types of wedding.. the one we oginaly was going to have here,then changed our minds to Jamaica, then we switch to DR.. I've been planning this whole thing for close to 2 yeas by the time we get married.
                I've gone through the ups and downs. Even said at one point that I give up and I wont be planning anymore. (that didn't last long lol)
                I think it's good to take a break from planning for a bit. Keep you sanity in check lol

                Thanks for posting the link!

                  Sorry - I haven't heard back from the resort photographer - well, he just said to call him when I get there and I haven't heard back since.

                  It is Arnaud from HDC. His work is great, I just felt pressured.

                    Are you getting the judge to still legalize it? Or will you just be having a catholic ceremony?
                    If your just having the priest merry you, then no you don't need to have anything legalized. But if your also getting married by the judge you will need to legalize your documents.

                    If your just getting married by the priest, your wedding wont be legal. So you'll either have to do that before or when you come back home.

                    Sorry Have no info for US, but I'd assume it's the same.. but I am sure you'll have a place you can send your paper work in the US somewhere, like we do here. Usually your own town has one. Or at least any big city.

                      Sadly, they are very popular and book up real fast. Same thing with Souvenir photographer, as I wanted to use them.. but 9 months before my wedding they were fully booked!!!
                      so I'd consider thinking about what package you want and book. Or you can just go with the resort photographer, as you wont have to decide anything until you get there.
