i found this on the web one day looking for the civil ceremony wording in mexico (it's not the complete article tho) ... thankfully a few changes have been made! haha! and FYI, the civil ceremony at dreams is NOTHING like this, so no worries!

Mexico updates language for civil wedding ceremonies.

COPYRIGHT 2006 Chicago Tribune

Byline: Hugh Dellios

 

MEXICO CITY _ Unlike many Mexican brides over the last 147 years, Veronica Mendez did not vow that she would not "exasperate" her new husband, nor promise to treat him "with the reverence due to the person who supports and defends us."

 

Nor was her husband, Gustavo Garcia, told to treat her "with the magnanimity and generous benevolence that the strong must have for the weak, essentially when this weak creature gives herself unto him."

 

Mexico's women scored a small victory in their long battle against machismo this spring when Congress told judges to stop reading those customary words during civil marriage ceremonies after a decadelong fight by activists who found them offensive, obsolete and a reinforcement of underlying sexist attitudes.

 

The so-called Epistle of Melchor Ocampo, written in 1859, once was the law but had been shelved by many judges as a nod to the changing times. Yet some judges still read it, perhaps thinking erroneously that it remained in the civil marriage code, and some women still request that it be read.

I stole those from Tammy. I stole the calender from Dawn. I think she found it somewhere online but I am not sure.
I am getting really excited except for the fact that I got my hair done yesterday and the underneath is ORANGE!!! HA HA HA they are supposed to fix it for me tomorrow. If they don't I will seriously freak the crap out on them. I haven't had a Bridezilla moment yet but there is a first time for everything!

oh NO! can't have ORANGE hair! at least not without getting a big ol' orange fake tan to go with it, LOL! they had better fix it! i think that sort of thing might be what tips me over into bridezilla territory, haha ... it'll be a shame too, since it's a good friend of mine who does my hair ...

Yeah, my sister works at the salon too so it sucks. I went in today and the owner is my sisters really good friend and she was pissed. The girl that did my hair has like a three month waiting list and is super hard to get in with. This is sooo out of the ordinary for her. I have an appt at noon tomorrow so keep your fingers crossed they can fix it. I thought my lil Groomzilla was going to go kill someone this morning ha ha ha I have my hands full with him!!

I've just been reading back through some of the past Dreams wedding reveiws ( Jilly's, Paula's, Brenda Star ect... ) and thay all say that they partied untill 11pm ! Does anyone know if they all had to pay the extra $10 + 10% + 15% for the additional open bar / waiter service per person ? I know this is a convirsation I have brought up before in a thread I started but I don't seem to have got very far with it. I know most of you are going to go with the flow and probably move on to one of the bars after your 3 hours of reception are up but I was just wondering how the others that have already got married there got round this music / time issue ?? Did they pay the extra or did they just end up staying with no extra cost ? Any thoughts ?.....

    • 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.
