Hi disazaja I'm not sure about how exactly I'm taking my dress. I guess as my carry on. When I book my flight I'm going to call and see if I can keep it upfront so I don't have to sqoosh it uptop above the seats :(. As for my hubby he wants to wear a dark beige suit for ceremony and pictures but is taking jacket off for reception. The groomsmen will not have the jackets.

I guess just call to double check for what day you wanted to arrive.

Yea definately double check, because I got my information from the consulate and sometimes judges give people a hard time for the smallest details.  I didn't use a TA for my wedding or vacation so I had to do all the research myself. Saturdays are considered business days in DR so it doesn't make sense about when the WC have weddings. To my knowledge they have weddings all week. My wedding was  on a Thursday and I arrived the Saturday. There are websites that definitively tell you residency requirements for each country. i.e Italy's is a MONTH lol. One of the ones I checked out was Islandbrides.com. Take all the info, do your research and good luck on your big day!

Hey Ladies

 

Weird question for those of you that have been to the resort- do the bathrooms really have glass instead of doors? Like see-through? I have alot of people sharing rooms who are not couples and my mom read that somewhere and freaked me out! hah.

I am planning on carrying mine on. I know there is a "closet" in the front where first class passengers hang their jackets, and it is closed and right by the flight attendants area so safe....but if not flying fc you may need to call ahead and see if that is a possibility and if not what else they do offer, but I know that the resort and many wedding sites say do NOT put it in the luggage and always carry it on.

Does anyone know if there is a steamer at BBPD though? 

 

As for the groomsmen that is totally up to my FI - who so far has said 1-Gray and 2- He will be buying their shoes as a groomsmen gift.

thoughts?!?!

 

We are getting married before to avoid the hassle of the paperwork, etc. I was a little worried about this too, but as my FI said we just will not tell anyone, and will every year celebrate our real anniversary as the day we got married in DR. Just ask the WC if you do a symbolic can you add in passages or things that you may have wanted with the judge.

Hey girls,

K, i haven't commented in awhile, so i've had a lot of questions building up, so forgive me :)....

 

First- an FYI- I just bought my dress and the salesperson said that she has had a lot of brides that have had no problem stowing their dress in the captains closet. She said they do some sort of treatment to the dress so that wrinkles are easily releasible, but not sure about that. But she did say if the resort doesnt not offer steaming service for the dress that she has had people just turn the shower up really hot and hang their dress up in the bathroom with the door shut and the wrinkles fall out.

 

Also, we're getting married here and then doing a symbolic ceremony, were not advertising the part where we're technically married : ) But we want our friend, who is a minister, to marry us there...does anyone know if that would be a problem.

 

Is the rooftop an option for a ceremony site?

 

And, has anyone shipped anything to the hotel? I am going to be bringing a lot of stuff for OOT bags and decorations, etc and im worried it will be too stressful to check all those bags.

 

Anyone that has gotten married at BBPD in the past year or two, would you mind sharing a link to your wedding photography page if it's up so we can see how it all came together?

 

Also, anyone done their reception on La Baracaza recently? We're doing ours there and I'm so excited!!

 

k, i think that does it. Thanks girls!

Well I'm a photographer, last year two brides traveling with me asked the flight attendants took care of their dresses for the flight, they were very courteous and took the dresses to what appear to be a closet . In the other hand, I doubt that They are going to allow anything from a passanger travel in the cockpit. However you should contact your airline carrier to get advice in regards of that. =]

Hi Coty

 

Having someone you know marry you is not a problem. I just went over this with the resort through my TA and they said that is just fine.

 

I think another bride on this forum just requested the rooftop for her ceremony, so I would just ask and see. It is a beautiful spot.

 

My TA is going with us to the resort so she is taking some of my decorations for me, but I think the hotel allows one box, but you have to request it.

 

Hope that little bit helps.
