Recently Decided to get married while on vacation

Recommended Posts

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 suggestionshuh.gif

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 :)

Hey Nikki,

 

Most couples getting married in PC are doing a symbolic wedding and you can hire Pastor York who does a full wedding for you, so know one knows the difference! I think he even has you sign papers. I think this may be the way to go as their is a lot less paper work and hassels. I belive he costs 300 to perform the wedding for you.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
