     Good Evening, I was wondering if any of you past brides could help me out on the marriage paperwork: I am confused as to the requirements of this paperwork. Do I need to have the original birth certificates AND then have them both translated and notarized into Spanish? Also, do I need the Declaration of Single Status translated for my fiance and I as one copy OR do we EACH need a copy of that as well translated into Spanish? For some reason I am confused by the way things are worded on the document of wedding requirements. I am also very unhappy to hear about the photographers...I am due to get married April 1, 2011 and had another photographer booked already that I have put a deposit on. I have emailed Yessica to try and find out more details on this. I would appreciate any help! Thanks!

      The Dominican Embassy has more information on their website

       

      Here is a link

       

      http://www.drembassy...sh/index-2.html

       

      You need to take originals with you and a single status affidavit completed for each of you.  You can send copies to the embassy and they will notarize it but you need the originals for proof when you get married.

       

      Hope this helps

        Hi Everyone,

         

        I've recieved so much information from this site...I love it.  I do have to ask about the paperwork that is necessary.  I have a discrepancy (birth certificate doesn't match passport or license, BC says Susie but passport and license say Susan...long story) and because I was born in the tri-city area in NY it says I need another document from the Dept. of Health.  I'm just wondering if anyone has had trouble with their paperwork?  I am booked for an Oct. 17, 2001 wedding as long as they can get the judge which makes me nervous.  Also wondering if it would be easier to just get married here by the justice of the peace before we leave on the 12th and then have a symbolic wedding there.  This whole judge thing is making me nervous because I'm still waiting for confirmation that he is available.  My WC is Carolina.

          For all the brides frustrated about the photographer issue, I am totally on board with us all writing a very strongly-worded email/letter stating simply that we should not be penalized for a corporate decision that has been made without our awareness or OK. If this is their policy, then it should take effect from the date they notified the resort and its consumers forward. It should not apply to brides who have already booked their weddings under the prior policy. It's the same thing as them just waking up and deciding that their going to change all of the prices and options on us and basically telling us to deal with it. Does anyone know if there's a specific contact person we can email? Thanks :)

            On another note, does anyone (future and past brides) have any suggestions/recommendations re: a welcome dinner or get-together for guests the day before the wedding? We have about 55 guests coming to our July wedding, but we can't afford to also pay a separate fee for a private dinner for all of our guests the day before the wedding. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas about others inexpensive options on the resort? I've looked at La Barcaza, but that seems still pricier than we were hoping. Thanks for any thoughts :)

              I have heard that some people have done a meet and great at one of the outdoor bars.  I have been to dreams last year to check out the site and they have several bars outdoors and indoors.  They also have different activities all week.  One I really liked was a BBQ, but I don't think they have that info in advance.  They also have shows later in the evening that you can also have your guest see.  (Seriously, as I am typing this, I am thinking about doing one of these options as I too am having difficulty with what to do).  Someone also mentioned doing an excursion and charge half price for their guest giving them an option if they want to go.  Hope this helps.

                  Hello ladies,

                  I haven't yet received an email from my WC about the new corporate policy regarding outside photographers, but I totally agree that we should send them a letter on behalf of all of us brides that had already booked with an outside photographer. 

                  The thing is, my reason for going with HDC was not because I doubted the skills of their resort photographer, it was primarily due to the fact that I could get more photos, in both B&W and colour, for a longer period of time for considerably less money.

                  I understand that corporate policies can change, but at the very least they should give us all our deposits back and offer us all photography packages with the resort photographer, that are comparable to the ones we were expecting with the photographers that were our first choice!!!

                   

                  I am thinking that our letter should be to the general Dreams Punta Cana address, rather than the Wedding Coordinators - whom I'd expect have no authority to do anything.

                  In addition to the letter, I'd also recommend that we start an all-out Social Media campaign on the Dreams Twitter and Facebook pages - these companies review these things regularly and the last thing they would want is for the bad press to go viral.

                   

                  Here is the link to their website, which lists all of their Social Media properties.

                  If you would like to be part of a letter please PM me.

                  Thanks,

                  Jenn

                      That is strange...I haven't contacted my photographer yet, but my wedding in November 2011, and Yessica told me I have time to cancel with Michael Weiler.

                       

                      I have emailed Yessica asking her to direct me to someone who can shed some light on this situation. When I get a contact I'll update here.
