At home civil ceremony

Recommended Posts

I mentioned the possibility to FI about getting married before leaving for St Lucia and he hated the idea. I really wanted to get married on a Sunday (the schedule worked out better that way), but St Lucia does not allow Sunday weddings. I always wanted my uncle to marry us but I need to have a licensed local do it.

 

So we changed things around and now are getting married on Saturday with no civil ceremony ahead of time. My uncle will be the co-officiant, handling any religious elements we choose to have incorpated.

 

What is everyone else doing?

Nope ! We are having the full legal ceremony @ Dreams Cancun. Personally I think getting married @ home first will take away some of the excitment. Although sometimes I do think about changing my mind because it would be so much easier

We did it before we went to Mexico because for us

 

1.) we didn't want to run around getting things done when we got to Mexico

 

and

 

2.) we wanted the honeymoon amenities at both resorts we stayed at and they wouldn't offer them without a marriage license (Dreams wanted a copy before they would schedule anything!)

 

It didn't take away from the "real" wedding for us.

We are getting married before we go to Mexico. We are both catholic and wated to really get married through the church. Well, catholic priests WILL NOT marry you on the beach so we decided to do the religious before we go. We will have a symbolic ceremony in Mexico but nobody really knows. It will my FI and me and our parents only for the catholic ceremony and everyone for the big party in Mex.

We decided to do the legal ceremony at home. We didn't want to really bother with the blood work etc...that's needed in Mexico. To be honest I hate the idea of needles and taking blood out before the wedding...I have thin veins and usually I get very burised....I didn't think it would really go with the dress :) Also, I have a couple of friends that did the "legal" ceremony in Mexico and then realized that their marriage wasn't recognized in many countries including some European ones. So we thought it would just be easier and take some of the pressure off to have it done earlier.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
