I don't know about the speaker thing...I have heard from a few who have done the symbolic ceremony and they have said that they make it look very official and even have a "marriage certificate" that you sign with your witnesses. They also pronounce you husband and wife and all that jazz so that everything about it is a real wedding ceremony except for the legalities part of it. We are doing the symbolic and just doing the legal stuff the week before we head out! We will be there July 16-24 - are you there in July too? When will you be there?

After speaking to several of you one here, we are strongly considering getting married (or as we like to think of it, doing the legalities), the day before we jet of to La Romana, then having the wedding as planned in Dreams. The only worry is that we really don't want it to appear to a renewal of vows/symbolic ceremony to our guests who have forked out a fortune to be with us!
Has anyone done this already?
Also, I have been advised by Dreams that there is a company who hire out large speakers so that an i pod dock can be plugged in and played a bit louder. I'm waiting for the contact details but if anyone else knows of this please let me know.
KCB2011, when are you there in July?xxxx
