I went to the Dominican Consulate in Toronto today. We did all our paperwork directly with them. They charged us 840.00 USD total. We both had divorce papers so that adds to the price. I asked them about WE DO, I was told that they don't get each document translated and legalized, they take them all, summarize the information and translate the summary. Then send them to the Dominican consulate for legalization. The lady at the Consulate said some resorts will accept this. Obviously, Dreams does accept this as Tiara recommends WE DO. I am just glad we have the paperwork taken care of.

 

I had asked Tiara awhile ago when she needed the paperwork at her end and this is what she sent me:

 

I will be taking care of the documentation with the Dominican Consulate. How far in advance do you need to receive these papers? (Tiara D.) At least 15 days prior your arrival.

Jennifer,
I was told to email or fax the paperwork to Tiara. Do not mail as it may not get there. I was told this by the Consulate not by Tiara. I will email Tiara now to make sure this is acceptable. I will let you know when I hear something from her. Hopefully, I hear from her right away.

Does anyone know the best way to travel with wedding dress? I would like to take as carry on... but do they allow this with all the new rules? Do we need to call in advance? Any suggestionshuh.gif?
Try looking on your airline's website. I don't know who you are flying through, but we are flying Air Canada and it tells you on their site for baggage allowance what you can do with the wedding dress. It says it can be your carry on but has to be folded over and put in the overhead storage.

So we got our documents back today from the Dominican Embassy! We sent them on Monday, March 8th by regular mail from Thunder Bay to Ottawa so it only cost about $2.00 to send there and back and got them back in 2 weeks! That was quick :)

Hi Jenne,
I received this email back from Tiara.
Dear Liane:

You can fax it or email me the information. The fax number is 809-221-8881

Best regards,

Tiara De la Rosa

Hi I was having that problem too, as the airline said I couldn't bring it on as hand luggage but I want my dress with me. My beautician got married in seychelles last year and she got a wedding dress travel box. it is the perfect size for hand luggage and her dress maker folded her dress into it with tissue paper. She was able to carry it ( it has a rope handle) the whole way to seychelles. She said that when she lifted her dress out when she got therte, it was perfect no creases in it. She is kindly lending me her box but they are available on the internet.

Hey ladies, sorry I've come so late into the ceremony discussion.

 

I have emailed Tiara and she has agreed to "MC" the symbolic ceremony for free.

 

I will give her a list of names and she will welcome the guests at the beginning of the ceremony and then call out the different speakers (my sister-in-law, my mother-in-law, etc.) who will do readings. Then my fiance and I will say our personal vows and Tiara will "announce us husband and wife."

Since we will already be married at that point (although noone will know), this will not be a lie on her part.

It seems like a better option than having to pay someone at the resort.

 

Also I asked about the cost of the wooden canopy or "huppa." She responded that it's $350 US undecorated. I have asked for the dimensions so I will probably take some flowing cloth with me to add and I've also bought tons of starfish that I will put on the back of the chairs and also on the sides of the canopy, maybe with a palm leaf.

 

I was inspired by this http://www.dreamsresorts.com/dretu/i...ding_pic02.gif, although my colours will only be white (and beige for the starfish & raffia).

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
