There is also a difference in ceremony. In the DR, a legal ceremony has to be performed by a judge and has strict wording, whereas a symbolic ceremony can be performed by your coordinator or basically anyone. This also may make it easier to confirm a date to be married since the resort does not have to reserve a judge for your time slot.

The only difference between the two ceremonies is that one is legally binding and the other is not. And as Josh mentioned, you have much more ability to customize your ceremony (vows, etc.) if you don't choose symbolic vs. civil.
I understand why you'd want to have the legal ceremony there, but your guests won't know the difference if you don't tell them (the ladies on here say the coordinators and ministers are very good at making it appear to be the "real thing) if that's what you decide to do.
