wedding cetificate/licence help

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone could help me with the procedure of the wedding certificate and/or licence? Do you have to get it in Canada first and mail it there, bring it there? Is the certificate the same thing or different, does it have to be translated later to english?

Any help would be great.

Thanks Kim

Hi Kim,

Are you planning to have a legal ceremony, or a symbolic (which means that you are not legally married)? For the symbolic, most couples get married by the justice of peace, or a minister at home prior to the ceremony to make it legal (this is the easy way, but not as exciting in my opinion). If you want to have a legal marriage ceremony in Dominican you need to have some documentation translated and legalized. It sounds like a lot of work, but its not really that bad. If you visit the below website, it tells you step by step what you need to do...

If you have any questions, just email or call them...they are wonderful to work with...and they are very quick at getting your documents back to you...

We used the first link...








If you visit the certificate tab on the first link, you will see that in order to be able to change your name with some organizations the certificate does need to be translated and legalized by the Dominican embasy in Canada...

If you need more details, please let me know.

Hope this helps!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!

    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned.
