Majestic Civil Ceremony wording

Recommended Posts

I asked Sandra about this but I didn't quite understand her response. Here is what she said:

 

Question: Is it okay if my husband & I write our own vows? We want to say them in English and in Spanish ourselves. I've heard from other brides that it's not possible. But because it will be in Spanish and English, I was hoping it would be okay.

 

Answer: Of course you can say your own vows in Spanish or English it doesn’t matter, the thing is that your vows is the only thing we can add to the ceremony as it is civil and the Judge does not accept any modifications.

 

So it sounds like yes, we can write our own as we will be translating ourselves, but then she says the Judge doesn't accept modifications. Any ideas??

So I am getting married in punta Cana in November and trying to do lots of research. I would love to do the civil ceremony there but nervous about the paperwork involved an the marriage certificate in Spanish... Did anyone get clarification on how long it takes to get mailed or how to get it translated in English.. A lot of people do synodic ceremonies and get married in the us first but I don't want to do that but also want to make sure it's legal in the us... Can someone give me any advice because I am panicking now... Thanks

If you are marrying in November, you should have enough time to get the documentation. I have the wedding prices breakdown for 2013 and a link to pics for flowers, cakes, venues ect, If you would like me to forward, pm me your address.

Hi Cherri!

Yeay another Beantown Bride :) I chose the MC because of a couple of reasons but the main reasons were 1) I love the gazeebo and to have 2 to choose from is even better ( beach and Garden) and 2) My Brother and sister in law got married at Excellence in Mexico and I Loved the swim up rooms. Majestic is the only hotel in DR that has them. And 3) I did not want that big hotel feel so I looked into places thast had 5 floors or less and this was the best one. Pm me your e-mail for the pricing attachments , I have pmed you the link for the pics.

    • 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
