We did it-a church wedding in dominican!

Recommended Posts

Although he was very strict on the paperwork that needed to be completed before we arrived and having all the information from our witnesses, he was alright with the shoulders showing (even though I did have something in case he did not) It was also 33 degrees and he had fans for us :)

Congrats!! Once you sent him the paperwork, did you meet with the priest before the wedding again? Did you create programs before you left, and basically knew what the ceremony would be like?

We never met with him before the ceremony. We did speak on the phone a few times and he was always very helpful. I did have programs made before I left, we communicated a lot by email and therefore he sent me what was in a program and I chose the readings. There is a book you can get it is called Together for Life and it has all the choices for readings from both the first and second testament. It was a god sent. I ordered it online to Chapters. Our wedding coordinator was excellent, she did the rehearsal for us and walked us through everything and was in the church the day of the wedding. 90% ofthe Dominican people are catholic so they are all pretty much in the know of what is going on!

Can you post what hotel and the name of the wedding coordinator in Punta Cana? I am going crazy with the hotels. Trying to get married at a church in June/July 2010 and have been in a verbal fight with both Dreams resorts in PC.

    • 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.
