      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??

      Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

        I got the same answer.... but I think that you can add YOUR OWN vow that the two of you will say but the Judge will not change or read anything other than the standard wording......

          I think that's right. Does anyone know if the coordinators will do the sand ceremony reading for you? Who are you all having do that?

            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.
