hi everyone!

 

do you know if you do a just a ceremonial and not civil, who would perform the wedding?  do you still have to arrange for someone to be there?

 

Has anyone had the entire wedding on the beach and not used the restuarant?  Any advice?  I was thinking ceremony outside, then inside for dinner and back outside for reception.  And does anyone have an opinion on having a dance floor vs dancing in the sand?

 

Thanks!!!

Hi! 

 

I'm planning something close to your idea. 

 

My best friend (and also my man of honor!) is going to be our officiant. He's getting certified online.

 

As far as being on the beach.. I'm all for it! :) After the ceremony, I plan on having dinner in the restaurant, but then going outside for dancing. I was going back and forth about a dancefloor, but then I realized that I really just want to keep it as natural as possible. I went to a beach bar in Thailand last year, and everyone was dancing in the sand. It was the most amazing, fun, laid back experience ever!

I was wondering if anyone out there has had anyone officate the wedding OTHER than the Legal Judge or Pastor York?  We had origannly planned to do a legal ceremony, but our wedding is on November 9th, and the Judge has STILL not confirmed our wedding time... am scared that he will end up giving us a time that will not work with our schedule!

 

We are moving forward with a "plan B", however, Pastor York is also not available on that day and I am really starting to panic as the day is so close!  Has anyone else used or is planning to use any other options for the ceremony?

We are doing a symbolic ceremony, officiated by my cousin. Its not legal, we are getting legally married here before bc it was too much hassle and stress for me. But if u get married by a legallly ordained person, not sure if its legal in punta cana like in the U.S.??

Varies by state/county. We needed to apply for a marriage license within 30 days of the ceremony and then had to schedule an appointment with the court.commissioner for the legal ceremony. We are doing this the day before we leave :-)

Hi Karolina - I'll send you the info via email. There is paperwork you will need to complete beforehand. Thanks TA Patty

    • 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?
