Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado?

Recommended Posts

We haven't asked about the payments, since our wedding will likely be really small, and we just started planning, but that would be very good to know. 

We are using a local travel agent. She has experience in destination weddings, and is really, really good. She has answered every question/email (we were out of town for a while) within hours (at the very most), and so far we are quite happy. At first I was hesitant about getting someone who wasn't a specialist in destination weddings, but after talking to her I was totally put at ease. Hopefully it continues on this well!

Hi! I know this was posted a long time ago, but I wanted to let you know that I know of 3 photographers who travel to Cayo Levantado, if you are still interested.

There is Karina Jensen, Michael Weiler, and Katya Nova.

I would encourage you to look them up online. They have also been great about answering emails. I really like different things about all of them. I think we will be booking with Michael Weiler, though, but we will see once we get our date finalized.

Hope that can help!

Hello Cayo Leventado brides!

I have a question for those of you who alreadynhad or arebplanning to have symbolic ceremony at Grand Bahia Principe. WC there told us that we need to provide a copy of marriage certificate before the ceremony.My FI and I were planning on getting legally married in Canada after we come back from DR. I'm trying to get a hold of Simona to ask if it's really mandatory but of course it's a weekend and she's not there. Are any of you in the same situation? I mean, I've researched other resorts in DR and Mexico and usually for a symbolic ceremony no such documents are required. Please help with any insight!

Hi,

I am getting married in 3 weeks at the resort. I too, do not understand why they need such documentation when it's a symbolic ceremony. What we did and it is working out super for us. We found a justice of the peace who give you a legal marriage statement which is all the resort needs (I sent it to Simona and her response was "excellent"), but our JOP isn't sending in the actual legal document to stats Canada until until after the official wedding. So we will be symbolically and legally married on Nov 13, 2012. I hope that helps.

Does anybody know what the ceremony is like at the resort for the symbolic ceremony? Do you think you could provide a ceremony script or do they have one that they use? I was going to ask the coordinator but thought it might just be quicker to ask on here :)

We had a legal ceremony, but wanted our own script.  One of the resort staff was able to read our whole ceremony, while the officiant said his parts in Spanish (there was never a direct translation into English).  I would imagine you could do the same for the symbolic ceremony- write out what you want them to say, and then find someone at the resort who can read it in English (the wedding coordinator was able to do this for us).

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
