    Hi
    My name is Nikki and I am 24yrs old I have been with my fiance for 5 yrs and we have a little boy together who is 18months old. We recently decided we would like to take a vacation in October. While looking for vacation packages we realized we could get married in Punta Cana for way cheaper than we could possibly here. I am fighting right now to decide to go the easy way and gt married here and just have a symbolic wedding in DR or do the whole thing in DR?? Any suggestions

      Congrats and welcome to the forum. Nikki I can't help with your decision but perhaps by searching in the DR forum and connecting with other DR brides they can help. Good luck with your decision and happy planning!

            It is nice that you and your fiance decided for marriage. If you are looking for cheaper way so I will suggest you a symbolic wedding in DR.

              Hi PuntaCanaNikki!

              We also debated over the whole "where to do it legally" thing, we decided on getting it legally done before leaving so we wouldn't have to deal with blood testing and translating, etc.

              Just run a search through the forum and do a list of pros & cons to weigh your options out?

              I see you're a fellow Canadian, maybe this could be helpful:

                Congrats Nikki and welcome to the forum!

                We decided to get legally married at home and do a symbolic ceremony in Mexico. It was easier and faster! And less to worry about :)

                    Nikki! Either way will be awesome! Symbolic definitely less hassle and less to worry about for sure. :)
