      Welcome and congrats! I was married in the DR in January and it was pretty simple. It took about a month for us to get our certificate and there was no problems with names on the documents. Good luck and happy planning!

          Welcome to the forum! You'll find neverending ideas and answers here.

          As long as you are both legally eligible to marry one another, you should be fine to get married in the DR, being a Canuck and a Yankee.

          Happy planning!

          ~Stay positive and love your life!~

            Hi CDN! I'm on a same boat. I'm Canadian, my FI is American. We both live in the U.S. although in separate states. We did discuss having a civic ceremony in the U.S. then having a symbolic DW ceremony, but I really do think I want to ceremony to be when we first say 'I do'...so, for now we are just focusing on choosing a venue and a date. Let's keep in touch and see how it all fares! Good luck and happy planning!

                Thank you, everyone! I may have to consider getting married in the US or Canada however not sure if I can't tell my family that we wil be having a 'symbolic' marriage rather than the real ceremony. Legality speaking, it is a lot easier and cheaper for immigration.

                  Hello fellow Canadians and possible yankees....:)

                  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!
