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

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
