I was having a lot of difficulties since I wanted a wedding away to make it "easier" but my family is super religious. I found out that I am able to have catholic wedding in a church in the DR. Has anyone else done this?

My family is also Catholic, so I had to look into this too.
Actually there are some resorts that offer Catholic wedding ceremonies (in a chapel or gazebo, not on the beach). But there is alot of paperwork involved - getting written permission from your home parish, alot of back and forth between parishes and dioceses. What we are doing, is actually going to our Catholic church 2 days before we leave for the trip, and having a short and sweet ceremony, parents and siblings only, and then we are leaving for Punta Cana to receive a religious blessing/renewal of vows (even though the vows will be only 2 days old, LOL!) So we still get to wed in our home church (on a Thursday night), there is no paperwork required for the resort. Something to consider - although the only downfall with this is that we are in essence having 2 weddings, but the first one is similar to say, a Rehearsal, but we're actually signing the papers!

its the groomzilla again with a few questions for the lovely ladies here at BDW.
As many of you know i'm Dominican. I'm a Catholic Domincan to be precise and my lovely fiancee is Anglican. We have decided to not only not have the wedding at the resort anymore but to have it in the old city of santo domingo ideally in the main cathedral or one of the many breathtaking churches of the city. There's a small hiccup. Kate is not Catholic. And she has no problems regarding marrying me at a catholic church but im not too sure how to play this one out. I thought to myself. How are they going to chech that we're both catholics?? But it turns out that they ask for paperwork from the country of origin.
Does this ring any bells to anyone? Is it possible? Could I try and "wing it" and see what happens??
Any light you can shed on this would be great;y appreciated, even more so if you happen to be dominican or have been in a similar position as me.
BTW, Just so you guys know. We canned the wedding at the resort EdenH when we found out that we couldn't bring in our own suppliers and had to use whatever was at hand on the hotel. We're now honeymooning at Cap Cana. Donald Trump's piece of the D.R

My childhood church was great about it when my godson was baptized and we needed proof of my own baptism,Eucharist and confirmation.
