Do you know if u get married in the states by the JP if they could make it the same day of your ceremony in pc? I hate the thought of having two dates
Do u mean on the paperwork? If so, then not in my state but dont know if it varies by state?? For us, our legal date is December 5, symbolic ceremony is December 9 so i figure we have 5 days of celebration each year :-)

Not sure about the states but in Canada they can't make it the same date...it has to be the date the Justice of the Peace signs it...but noone ever has to know that :) We are using our Punta Cana date as our wedding anniversary date and thats when we will celebrate every year!

Technically you are not allowed to fly with sparklers. But many brides bring a few with them. Just pack it at the bottom of your suitcase. You can also spread them out b/w family and friends. I am planning on doing a sparkler entrance for my wedding at the jf.

 

Not sure about the wish lanterns but I think I remember they weren't allowed.

Hey everyone! Was just curious if anyone has been to either NOW Larimar or Melia Caribe Tropical hotels and can tell me a little about either one of them. Those are the two hotels I am currently in between. Thanks so much all!

I suppose ill live with it and just use our pc date too! Or.celebrate all week!
The date your US marriage license is signed and filed has to be a date you are in the US. If you want to legally be married on the date of your PC wedding you'd have to do it their way and go thru all the steps involved. We used a friend who got ordained online and we signed the paperwork and submitted when we got back. The date is different but we can celebrate either or both dates. We probably will just celebrate the date the wedding took place. J ust make sure to tell them you did a ceremony at home on the date you are signing the license with. You're supposed to have an actual legal ceremony in the US also but when it's a friend signing as officiant, they have no way to know...

Hi Lauren ~ Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!  I have been to both resorts and they are both nice. It just depends what you're looking for in a resort. Melia Caribe is larger than Now Larimar but the standard rooms at both resorts are comparable in size, Now Larimar is slightly larger with 495 vs 450 sq ft. I thought the grounds at Melia Caribe were nice, lush and tropical and I really liked the Royal Service. We had dinner at the Mexican restaurant at Melia and it was very good. We didn't get to sample the restaurants at Now Larimar but they had a good variety. If you have any additional questions please feel free to conatact me at patty@wrighttravelagency.com or 866-208-8681. 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?
