Hi Ladies! I Just confirmed my date for the Jellyfish on July 3, 2013! Like you all I am super excited but I have so many questions! I was going to have my ceremony at the hotel... but the only time for the ceremony is 1pm.... which is way too early so I have switched everything over to the Jellyfish! Is anyone getting married at city hall before you go down? My travel agent says its too much paperwork and trouble to do the legal thing down there... any opinions on this? Thanks! Kristine 
We had wanted to do the legal ceremony in the DR and not have to worry about having 2 ceremonies until we looked into the process. We decided for us it wasn't worth the hassle. So, one of our best friends got ordained online and he officiated for us and we signed all the documents when we got back. We just told them we were doing the "official ceremony" at home and our NJ lisence is dated for the day we got back. It was way easier, almost free (as opposed to all the fees for translation and the judge) and we were able to do it all how we wanted.

We got married at city hall in chicago before going to DR to have our symbolic ceremony.  After looking into the cost, paperwork involved, and the amount of time it took to get your certificate back from DR we decided it was the best way to go.  And I still feel we made the right decision.  sooo much easier and stress free.

Thanks!!

We were able to take our bracelets off and get new ones the day after the wedding.  Some of the groomsman forgot to take theirs off (My husband included...grrr) and they show in the pics..I definitely recommend reminding everyone to take them off :)

 

I would double check with the resort though since they all have different rules, but I honestly don't think any of them would have a problem.

Does anyone know the size of the lobster tail?? Thanks!
Lala32 - yes, you can take off your wristband, or I have seen people with it on their ankle... Smithk79 - its about 1.5-2lbs...

Awesome, thanks!  I'm sure the front desk will know who I am then after I take it off for the wedding AND for the TTD the next day!  cheesy.gif  I'll double check with the majestic board too - maybe they can confirm.

 

Zogalak, I'm getting married before hand also... we ultimately felt it was not worth the hassle to get everything translated into spanish and back and you are also at the mercy of the schedule of the judge (i think there is only like 1 in the area?).   I struggled with 2 weddings for a but but I'm perfectly ok with it now.  In fact, I have to go to Vegas for work in a week and a half and altho it's a little early, I'm honestly contemplating just making it "legal" there - it would be much more fun than city hall!  Dec will be our recognized wedding date but we would consider this just a formality/legality, whichever way you look at it.

Ladies I know I asked before about round vs square tables and we established that you can either...I'm probably going to go with round tables so does anyone know if they seat more then 8? I'm working out a seating plan and it would be sooo good if I could squeeze in 9 at a couple tables..thanks!

Mayte said the rounds could fit 8-10 but 8 is ideal...so yes it should work! :-)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
