It's just all the cost wrapped up together. We have one of the ceremonies paid for in our package, but because we wanted a dual legal/symbolic, we have to pay for one separately (so $550). Plus blood work when we get to Mexico is $220 x 2. Then we have to get our Apostille Birth Certificates, so first we have to order long form birth certificates from the government ($60 each) then send them in to a company to have them certified ($250 plus fees for each doc x 2). So that's $1610 USD. The problem was we didn't know exactly how much it was going to get the Apostille Birth Certificates. We knew it would be $250 "plus fees" but when we found out they needed to take them to the Mexican Consulate in Ottawa, I told my fiance to forget it. Way too complicated!!!

Sounds good Sandy! Tuesday June 7th works for me as well. Anyone else in? We can definitely do Una, it's delicious! There's also a new pizza place that opened in Inglewood that's suppose to be great too (called Without Papers, where Nectar use to be). I'm game for whatever.

Really? I heard it cost about $600 all together. I'll have to look into that. Thanks for the heads up.

Wow Natalie! I only saw one of the videos but it's amazing!! Sorta makes me wish I could go back and get video at our wedding :) So work has scheduled a dinner on Tues the 7th that I have to go to :( It's for my boss, otherwise I would've tried to get out of it. Any chance we could do the 9th or 14th instead?

Also ladies, you can see 2 videos on this site of my wedding day.  I think one shows up on the side (Natalie and Jay) and you might have to go to "see all" videos, so you can see the other one.

 

Enjoy!

    • 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
