I was wondering if someone could send me the current prices for Jellyfish. I will have about 30 guests. My email is tashamarieash@gmail.com. I am also worried at keeping the travel and resorts costs to a minimum. What is the best bang for you buck when it comes to resorts?

My travel agent told us Melia Caribe or Melia Tropical are best bang for your buck resorts.

Yes, it includes all the decor that you want for your theme. Mayte is extremely passionate and will go out of her way to buy and or make decorations to accommodate your theme. She uses decorations she already has otherwise she buys decorations from Etsy.

Do you know what else the $1500 includes? I'm just a bit confused if it also includes the decor? [/quot

The owner of Huracan Cafe got back to me with their wedding brochure which outlines costs for appetizers, menus, and alcohol. If anyone doesn't have it then I can send it but we're still considering the location for our wedding. I'm not gonna make a final decision till I have a quote in hand from both places as prices are very comparable.

Yes, I emailed them back asking them for pricing for additional things, but it took them nearly 3 weeks to get back to me the first time. My fiance is driving me nuts and is now saying he'd rather go with Jellyfish because he thinks they do so many weddings, they'd be better. I think Huracan did a beautiful wedding, but there's only 1 I can find online and I really do wish there were more.

Have you seen some of the wedding setups at their Facebook page? A lot of them are really beautiful but I'm not stressed out as we got our date confirmed with Mayte and we won't get a quote from her for a while. I guess it will ultimately come down to cost for us.

You are urged to contact the Dominican Republic Services regarding any clarification or additional questions you may have. Please also confirm with the hotel you have chosen for your wedding if they require your birth certificates to be legalized or only translated is enough, and that your wedding date and details are confirmed.


You will need two witnesses holding valid passports who can be travelling with you or you can ask local hotel staff to witness your wedding.

The following documents are required to get married in the Dominican Republic. Note that legal transcripts of birth certificates, single status affidavits and divorce certificates need to be prepared in the country where the documents were issued.

  • Original birth certificates. Send two photocopies.
  • Valid and signed passports. Send two photocopies of the main page.
  • Notarized Statutory Declarations of Single Status done according to the sample. Bring or send one original and one photocopy. Please see attached sample of a Statutory Declaration of Single Status.
  • Divorce certificate or death certificate (if applicable). Send original or notarized photocopy and two simple photocopies. In both cases, a minimum waiting period of ten months applies before a woman can remarry.

The 3rd and 4th documents are translated and legalized by the Dominican Republic Consulate. The birth certificates have to be translated into Spanish as well.

Please note that your first, middle and last name must be the SAME in your passport and statutory declaration. If name is different on your birth certificate, please indicate that in point 1 of your declaration.

Fees: $100 US each legalization, $40 US each translation

Note: Some hotels in the Dominican Republic may charge legal fees for the authentication of documents legalized by Dominican Consulates abroad by the Secretary of State of Foreign Affairs.

Please note that some Canadian institutions require the Dominican Marriage Certificate to be translated and legalized by the Dominican Republic Consulate in Canada. Please contact Dominican Republic Services for further details.

A sample copy of the Statutory Declaration of Single Status is below, as provided by the Dominican Republic Services in Toronto.

    • 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
