Punta Cana - Catholic Wedding

Recommended Posts

Oh no! My WC said he will be doing the ceremony, and then I told her that we wanted to do have the ceremony in Spanish. She said that he also speaks Spanish, so now I'm not sure.

What is his primary language? Does anyone know if it can be done in English and in Spanish? Also, I was a little worried about the music throughout the ceremony. I don't want to use the expected Ave Maria or others, and was hoping to get away with using instrumental songs. What was anyone's experience with this? Also, were you able to play regular music while the guests sat down? I read over some of the requirements and it included no pop  music, was wondering what everyone used while people found their seats..

I know that he also speaks English and French. I believe he can incorporate both spanish and english in the ceremony. I was told that by my wedding coordinator. As far as the music goes, I have the same questions as you.

I had a catholic ceremony at the Melia Caribe.  We used the guitar trio they played instrumental music upbeat local sounding.  They played Cannon D when I walked down the aisle.  There was no music during the ceremony.  :(

I was told by my wedding coordinator that he does. You can have your wedding coordinator double check that for you. Make sure you let them know from the beginning that's what you want done, so there is no confusion later on.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
