    I would like to check with those of you who are more experienced with this so I wanted to know if I have started the process correctly of booking the date we would like in 2011.

    We have decided on the Iberostar Bavaro and I emailed the Wedding Coordinator to ask what happens next and we have been put on the waiting list for January 2011. We were told the date wouldn't be confirmed until next March when the judge confirms his availablity.

    Was everyone else in the same boat?

    I am a little concerned because she also told us January is really busy.

        I booked my wedding last september, 2008, for July 2010 (almost 2 years early) and I had no problem getting booked that soon. My wedding is in mayan riviera, so maybe that makes a difference. I also have a TA that specializes in doing weddings. They are called The Wedding Holiday, and they got me booked right away. Maybe contact them and see if they can get you booked right away. Their website is www.theweddingholiday.com They have been fantastic to deal with so far and extremely helpful with wedding planning.

          you will find that if you are having a legal wedding in the DR you'll have to wait until about 10 or 11 months out to get your date confirmed since the judges that make the wedding legal only book that far in advance.

          if you decide to have a symbolic ceremony and get legally married at home first you'll probably avoid this scheduling hassle plus you'll avoid having to pay translation and judge fees. this is, of course, a personal decision, but a lot of girls do take this path because it can simplify things and potentially get you a date booked sooner.

          good luck and let us know what you decide!!
