We are booked at the Gran Bahia resort and are about to email the coordinator our form and deposit and it states that we need to email them a scanned copy of our passports and Visa both front and back, is that normal? We were told never to give out the 4 digit on the back of the Visa, has anyone else done this, is it safe? Thanks for any input.

I sent in our payment form, passport copies, etc. in March and have had no problems. I actually caleld my travel agent when the resort co-ordinator requested this information from me to make sure it was "normal" for this to be requested. Apparently, it is normal! I did not provide the 3 digit code on the back of my cerdit card, but I did provide the card number and expiry for them to debit my card the wedding package deposit of 10%.

Thanks Natashakc, I just heard back from my travel agent and she too said it was normal, just black out the 3 or 4 digit security code. That is what we will do. t is good to know you haven't had a problem! Thanks again!

Not sure if any of you ladies know this...they do have a free wedding package at GHP. It is seems like they still offer most of the same things. It's on my home computer - I could email to anyone who wants to take a look.

 

My fiance and I have opted to do the free wedding package. We are getting married in Canada a month or two prior to departure so we can have a canadian marriage certificate. It just saves alot of hassle & money. A friend of mine got married in Punta Cana in 2007 (i think) and it took a year to get her marriage license...and once you finally recieve it you have to have it translated which is quite expensive. So, opted to do the free wedding package, without a judge (so we also avoid the judge's fees), performed by one of the wedding co-ordinators...so it's going to be what they call a "symbolic ceremony". We have to send them our marriage certificate one month prior.

The package includes 16 ppl and is $25/person above that....if memory serves me right.

 

And, depending on how many people go with us - we might do the private dinner reception. Which I'm not totally sure why we'd pay for it...since it's an all inclusive vacation. We could walk down to the buffet or just go to one of the restaurants and really doesn't matter too much that we can't be seated together while we eat.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
