    Hi Girls!!!

    You all probably already know this, but religious ceremonies in Mexico are not (well as of a few months ago) are not considered legal ceremonies. I was looking at both Moon Palace and El Dorado and saw some fine print in my Moon Palace contract. A lot of people do the "legal" route at home or right before the ceremony and then have the ceremony.


    Not sure if this policy is still the same, but if you want your DW to also be the legal one, defnitely look into first so you know all the details. If you need help, definitely let me know! My wedding moved from Mexico to Jamaica, and then finally a cathedral at home. HA! I will help in ANY WAY to make this work for you all!!!!!

        I really want to have a Catholic Ceremony at the gazebo at one of the resorts in the Dominican Republic but one of the agents I contacted told me that it costs a lot more than just the legal ceremony.
        I am willing the get the legal stuff done here before we go and send the church papers to DR 3 moths before the big day.
        It is my understanding that if we're only doing the Religious ceremony that we should not be charged the judge fee of $300 and am hoping that is how much we would contribute to the DR parish.
        Does anyone have an idea of how much it would cost to have a priest come to the resort to perform the ceremony in the DR?
        We're in a very tight budget...please help!
