Puerto Rico Brides!

Recommended Posts

Tmarie, have you made contact with the Demographic Registry? They can be frustrating to work with. I wish that PDF file was available when I got married. I eventually used WedAffair's licensing service which was helpful. I have a few tips though:

1. Write NOW to the registry to get the information so that you can bring it with you to your doctor's office. Many states no longer require these tests and some labs get very confused when you ask for the VDRL.

2. Leave some time for the test results to be returned if you are being tested in the states. My results had to be faxed to Puerto Rico because the lab was slow. WedAffair had their own doc sign off on our tests.

3. The Demographic Registry is not a romantic place. Not all of the clerks speak English and you will not receive the actual application until you are in PR so be prepared to spend a few hours at the office. Do not leave anything unanswered. You will need Id, birth certificate, and social security card. In addition, whoever marries you will also want to see these documents and will need the license application.

4. Remember island time! It took several months for the license to arrive and is in Spanish so maybe I'm not really married after allwink.gif

Uconn, I will be married at Hotel El Convento which is right across from the SJ Cathedral. It might be an option for you. It's a beautiful hotel that was originally a convent.
Check it out here --- San Juan Hotels, Puerto Rico Luxury Vacations & PR Room Reservations - Hotel El Convento
They have been very helpful & have answered the 50,000 questions I've thrown their way.
I will be sure to post pics once I'm back.
I've looked at the Hotel El Convento so please let me know how it went!! Congratulations!! I think I finally got buy-in from my FI on PR so now I want to start the planning! Any recommendations for Wedding Coordinators?

Latinhunny33-how exciting! Our wedding at El Convento is fast approaching also! Where did you decide for the honeymoon? You may have mentioned it and I missed it. We are thinking about taking a cruise out of San Juan because it is so easy!

Evie - I've taken a couple of cruises out of Puerto Rico and it's really a great port to start out of because you get to spend more time on the islands vs. at sea...of course it is your honeymoon so perhaps you want to have more days at sea!! If you have any questions on various ports - let me know! Congrats on the big day!

Hey Girls! I am new to the DW planning and we are looking at PR and DR. Has anyone looked into the Intercontinental or El San Juan hotel? we would love to get married at either of those places, but not sure our guests can afford them! Any suggestions?

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
