CnC - I have a question for you: how are you Canadian living in the US and your fiance is in another state? Just curious.

FYI - I asked RIU and dominicanrepublicservices.com (based in the USA and yes, WeDo takes care of logisitics in the US) what I can do to expedite the process. Apparently, there is a certificate with apostille that RIU can give me and then dominicanrepublicservices.com could start the legalization and translation of our documents so that we do not have to wait 6 months to receive the marriage certificate.

It is good to hear SeaPrincess that you received your certificate in 1 month. That's great...

My fiance and I have been together for over 8 years living in separate countries and it would be nice to eventually live in the same country with eachother shortly after we getting married. Wish us luck!
:) Fair question! I'm a research scientist; I met and fell in love with my FI while I was in Chicago. My lab moved to Dallas and he proposed 2 months later!

Congrats and welcome.


My situation is similar to yours, I am Canadian and my FH is American. We have decided that I will move to the US once we are married. We will be getting married first and then he will be applying for me as his spouse. We are going to use an immigration attorney to try and speed the process up. There is a Fiance visa program you can use but you have to marry within 90 days of the visa being granted which would be too much of a rush for us.


Good Luck to you and keep us posted on your progress!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
