    I just got an email from Dreams saying that they don't perform weddings on Sundays. Is that true everywhere in the DR or is that just a Dreams policy? Does anyone know? Our anniversary happens to be on a Sunday and though it is not a dealbreaker, it was the date we wanted.

      Others may have even more insight into this. But, when I was doing research into where to have the wedding I ran into this. I found it to be particulalry true in locations where Christianity is the dominant religion.

        I'm not certain, but many of the resorts I've looked at in DR and Mexico won't perform weddings on Sundays or holidays - so check the local holidays too.

          Sunday was the day off during the week for the coordinators at our resort, so no Sunday weddings (legal or renewal). Like others have said, Sunday is probably going to be a difficult day to arrange.

          Good luck!

            Thanks for the feedback girls, I'll just have to suck it up and change the date!

                Our resort said that the minister doesn't work weekends, but for 150 USD extra he could work on a Saturday. Never on a Sunday.
                It is funny because he does two weddings every Saturday at this resort alone, I wonder how much he racks in extra on Saturday?

                  Yeah no kidding Saraece! I bet it is good business to be a minister in a resort town period. Not a bad gig really...

                    I was married on a Sunday in Jamaica. I wanted to be engaged exactly one year and the one year mark fell on a Sunday. I also figured since we were getting married in Jamaica Sunday was no different than Saturday or Monday right? The whole 7 days was like a weekend. :-)

                      YUP no sundays, anywhere. But wow I did not know that ministers get paid extra for working Saturdays! You would think that for an extra extra fee they would work on sunday as well.
