    Hi Catholic Brides!

    Another question. For DR and PR - are you all having a civil cermony prior to your catholic ceremony to make it legal?

    I just read the initial contract from moon palace in cancun and it states that "Catholic weddings in Mexico are not legally binding. All couples must be civilly married prior to the Catholic ceremony. Please inform your wedding coordinator if you are interested in one of our civil wedding packages. Additional charges may apply"

    Have you all heard anything about this for DR or PR?

      I'm a DR bride, and the ceremony is legally binding there. so, the short answer is, we're not having a ceremony first here.

          I'm staying at the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach in Montego Bay and getting married at a Catholic Church located 15 min away. We have to seek permission of the priest at home and also complete a precana marriage course.

          While I was doing research I found the Curacao was one of the few places that perform a Catholic wedding outside the church.
          Enjoyed a FANTASIC wedding in Mobay with 95 of our closest friends and family!!

              The ceremony in Puerto Rico is legal and so we're not having a civil ceremony prior to our wedding in PR. PR has a bunch of requirements - i.e. certified blood tests, marriage license, etc.

                thanks uconn - how long do you have to be in PR prior to the wedding for it to be legal?

                  I don't think there is any residency requirement since it's still considered the US. No passports needed either!

                      We are also not having a civil ceremony prior to the one in the DR. The DR has no residency requirement nor a blood test requirement.

                      The Catholic wedding in legally binding in the DR as well so we are all covered....
