We plan to do the legal thing before we go to the DR for the "big show" and I didn't really want it to be anything big or special. I don't want it to take away from the day in the fancy dress with everyone there.

Because FI's family is here, he wants them there for the legal cermony. I don't think his sister will be coming down to the Dominican b/c she can't afford it, but his parents will be there at the resort. None of my family will be there for the legal ceremony, only the symbolic one. I think my family would be a bit upset if his family was there and they couldn't be.

SO my question is... Who did you have at your legal ceremony? confused.gif

I'm planning on doing the same. I think I'm gonna have my sister there at the legal ceremony then meet everyone out for dinner (just something small) We may even get tattoos afterwards! friday.gif

We are probably just going to have our MOH and BM, but we still have to decide where we are going to do it. We want to do it the day before we leave, so it would be a 2 hr drive for my MOH just to turn around and go back to leave, or do it in the city when we get the the day before leaving, and the BM can make sure to be there by a certain time.


A funny little note *my MOH really wants to be there, as I will be getting our marriage certificate through her and she will sign it then, and then she wants to sign it as the witness too! She is so funny, although her first signature on it won't appear on it after the wedding, as the person performing the ceremony gets that part. Still, we will know that she got to sign it twice. LOL

It was such a great time though. I totally recommended it. Find a drive thru chapel and have fun!
That is soooo awesome! If we weren't so strapped for cash for our 'real deal' in Tulum I would totally do this! So jealous! And your cab driver as a witness?! How classic is that?! Lucky you! smile159.gif

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
