I am getting married in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. At the moment we have about 20 people coming down to celebrate with us and we are super excited! I am so happy to have this forum to vent to people who are going through the same excitement and stress as I am!
My DW planner highly sugguested that my fiance and I get married at the courthouse right before we leave so we dont run into trouble getting copies of our marriage certificate, as she said it takes forever and you have to have them legally translated in the US and it gets very expensive. Hopefully someone can answer my question about this which is: if I get married a few days or the day before I leave, my last name changes right? so does that make my passport and what not invalid? will I have trouble getting back to the states?
Does anyone have any experience with this?
