when we were going to do the legal thing in pv, we were told 48 hrs, but had to be there on a wednesday b/c that's when the dr. was there, and when we could watch the video on getting married (?? i know!!!). so if were were getting married on a sat., we'd have to be there 4 days in advance. it was just easier to do the legal thing at home quietly. from this, i understood that each resort does it differently...which makes me think that each resort charges a different amount for the legal stuff as well.

Ok well as far as I know you pay:-

$50 plus tax per doc to be translated, ie birth certificates, change of name, divorce papers

$300 plus tax blood tests

$181 inc tax for legalisation of certificate

Holy crap!!!! Wow...they really charge a lot. Im guessing it is 300 bucks per couple for blood tests. Thats insane, but I guess worth it if youre marrying the person you love. They sure are making a buck or two. No wonder every other ecomony in the world is doing awesome and ours is on the down slope!!!

our wedding coordinator advised us that we should be there 4 days in advance....

 

The idea of a courthouse ceremony before we leave is nice, but i want our legal day to be valentine's day. That's so corny I just rolled my eyes at myself....

For me the legal part only cost the 150$ (for both of us) for the blood test (the charge has since increased to 175$ I think). Dreams Tulum doesn't charge you any different for the the legal or symbolic ceremony (i.e. for the judge and paperwork). So for me it was definitely worth doing the legal thing down there. Some other resorts charge exorbitant amounts though just for the judge and marriage certificate.

My FI and I went to the Statehouse today and got our documents completed. We just had to do our birth certificate. That cost us 10 dollars. We also had to make color copies of our passports which was about 2 dollars. The bloodtest we were told was 150 dollars for the both of us. I think you are also suppose to tip the judge 50 dollars. So far not so bad. We booked our wedding today so our offical date will be May 27 2009 at Dream Tulum. Awww finally feels good to have a date!

    • 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.
