I have heard mixed reviews about the translation. Some brides said yes, some said no. I would rather be safe than sorry, but I would be annoyed if I go through the hassle.

I put an email in, if I heard back before you do about your date confirmation...I'll write a nasty email ;-)
lol...luckily she finally emailed today and everything is all set! I want to be safe than sorry over the translation issue. Imagine getting there and you don't have it and you need it! Go to your state's govt website, and go to the Secretary of state page. There should be something right on it about Apostille's. They make it sound easy.

Okay,

 

So I got an email back from Karla and she said that the translation is NOT NEEDED. YEAH!!!

 

As long as I have that in writing, I should be okay. It also has the Italian Menu for private reception and answers to other questions in the email. Amy and Leah I will forward it to you if you want =)

Wow. Happy that we are doing all the legalities here in DC. The fiance used to work for a judge (who is now 93 and probably not going to make it down to Mexico), so he's going to do the official wedding. His sister can't go due to her babymaking skills (and bad timing), so she's going to go to the official wedding. If my grandmother can't fly to the actual wedding, she'll probably go as well.

are you ladies talking about for the legal ceremony (for the translation and all that?)

 

How far in advance did you guys pick your dates? we had to push ours back due to some family stuff but I am thinking April of 2011, but I don't want to have to reserve it now and put it a deposit down till I am sure. (there is still issues with the family, so there is a small chance we may not do mexico). Do you think a year in advance is enough time?

A year should be more than enough time. In fact, it may be too much time because we realized that some places will not allow you to book until they have the new rates out for that year. For an April 2010 wedding, we reserved our date in August. That said, we couldn't get any other Saturdays in April by then, so we're having a Sunday wedding.

I see some people on this forum that are looking to schedule an April 2010 wedding and have not yet booked. I'm not sure what kind of availability they have, but I know they're still trying. Good luck!

I think a year is plenty of time. Like Emmers said, most places won't even let you reserve the date until a year in advance.

Also, the Iberostar does not require a deposit!! Some resorts do, but the Iberostar will reserve your date and then officially confirm it once you have made your hotel reservation. I guess they figure if you have paid to come to the resort that is deposit enough for them.

    • 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
