    Quick question, how many days in advance are you girls getting there prior to your actual wedding day? I know we need to be onsite 2 days in advance, but are you all getting there earlier than the two days? Thanks! Ska Ska

      We are getting married on a Thursday and arriving the Sunday prior.  We are staying 7 days before we head to Turkes and Caicos.

        Could you possibly send me the photos that she sent you?  I am wanting to have a reception on the beach as well and pics would definitely help me make my decision.  Thanks!  I'll try to PM you my email address.

          Hi Ska Ska!

           

          The amount of time you need to be in the DR before you get married depends on if it's going to be a legal ceremony or a symbolic one. If it's legal, I believe a 3 business day requirement is mandated by the country, but if it's symbolic, then it's really up to you. Even though we did a symbolic ceremony, our WC (Sharron, who is no longer with DPC) suggested 3 business days (so we arrived on a Wednesday), just  to make sure we had eveything squared away prior to the date, which was a Monday, and therefore the weekend was basically a wash for all things "business-related". But I got a couple extra days in paradise, so there was NO complaining from me! :-)

            I won't be arriving until November 14th and our wedding on the 19th.  We will have to meet up at the swing up bar and let me know how it went!!  November is coming so quickly...I am getting excited!!!

              I am arriving on November 14 (Sun) and getting married November 19th (fri).  If you are having a legal ceremony, I am pretty sure you have to be in the country for 3 business days, weekends, holidays and arrival date apparently do not count.

                      Our wedding is on Nov 23rd but we're getting there on the 20th, and that's a saturday...we were told by Sharon it's just a thing they say but it's not a requirement.
