This is a question to all the past MP brides….

 

How was the blood-draw? I work in a hospital....so I am just wondering how well it went down there. I would say of everything, this is what I am most worried about. I donâ€t mind giving blood at all….but Iâ€m a little worried about giving it in Mexico!

That was my concern too, so I am getting married back home first and having a symbolic ceremony there!

I cannot speak from my own experience.....but friends of ours got legally married at Moon Palace 2-3 years ago. They had their blood drawn at the little medical office. This was what they told us, "We were taken to a medical office with two other couples getting married either the same day or the day after us. The office was more like a big room with a fabric screen for some privacy...not individual rooms for each couple. They drew the blood with a blood draw needle/syringe, and then "squirted" the blood into a vial. Not like in the US where the lab guy draws your blood into a vacutainer or inserts the needle into a vacutainer to eject the blood into. They literalyl squirted the blood into an open vial, capped it and labeled it. We were then let go when we were done."

Doesn't sound exactly sanitary, but I haven't heard anyone on here complain about the process. Since I will technically be getting married less than a full year from the date my divorce was finalized (it took FOREVER to get my divorce finalized)......I would have to take a pregnancy test on top of the blood test.....COME ON PEOPLE.....I have three kids and a tubal!!! LOL Ain't no more babies coming out of here! LOL

Seriously, we decided to get leglly hitched in the states because it cost us $35 instead of like $500+.....and no one knows the wiser except us! :) Our friends did it down there and they wouldn't have had it any other way....so to each their own. Whatever makes you happy!

We just got married here in the states as well for the exact same reason...

I'm getting married in the states too. It just seems easier. If I ever have to get an official copy of my marriage license, I would much rather deal with my county government than the Mexican government.

    • 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.
