English in Punta Cana

Recommended Posts

Hi Girls!

 

I'm a newbie to this site and up until now I've only posted a couple of quick replies and read many many posts. I've finally decided to stop lurking and ask some questions.

 

My FI and I are still deciding on a location for our DW. We want a place that's affordable enough for our guests but lavish enough for a wedding. We've been to Dreams Punta Cana and fell in love with everything from the people to the beach! After reading about weddings in PC, I realized that the ceremony is done in spanish.

 

I guess the question is - Has anyone looked into getting married or has anyone gotten married in DR and had a ceremony in english?

 

Thanks! I look forward to interacting with you all!!!

I don't think you will have a problem finding someone to perform an english ceremony in the DR. I know Dreams in Punta Cana has an english ceremony for sure :0) I was just there back in June. That resort is such a dream to have a wedding at too especially with the gazebo. Generally the wedding coordinators at the resorts could help you with this as well. Best of luck planning

If you are having a symbolic ceremony, you can have it in english. If you are having a legally binding ceremony, it will have to be in spanish unless the judge is running late or something in which case it will be done in english by the wedding coordinator and the judge will sign the papers at the end (personally, I am pushing for the latter).

 

It may or may not be possible to find your own officiant to do a legally binding one in english, but I have not looked into this.

I got married in Punta Cana and the ceremony was performed in Spanish with the wedding coordinator translating it into English. At first I wasn't so thrilled with having it translated, but in the end it was really nice to have Spanish involved in the ceremony
