Canadian Brides!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts


hey!! i just moved to kingston!

 

welcome to the canadian thread and congrats on the engagement!! I am getting married at the Rui Ocho Rios on April 19th!

 

from what i know you have to pay to have it translated...soemtimes they offer that as part of the cost through the hotel so i would ask them first and if not then get it done here.

 

happy planning!

Regarding the matter of having your wedding legally recognized in Canada after coming back home, what do I need to know?

Will the marriage certificate issued in Mexico be enough for me to register for a marriage certificate here? And since the marriage certificate will be in Spanish, do I get that document translated here or should I have that done in Mexico? And I won't need to register for a marriage license in order to be married in Mexico, right? I already know that both the bride and groom must pass a blood test before they can be legally married in Mexico.

 

I hope you ladies can help me clarify my confusion. Many thanks!

Yay more April brides! Picked up my dress yesterday from davids bridal!! So exciting!! Now to find shirts for the boys. I'm hoping Tommy bahama at Vaughn mills will have some nice ones. Anyone have any suggestions of where to find beachy shirts in the winter?

I called "vital statistics" here in Saskatchewan about this...I was told if you marriage is legally conducted in the country you choose, they consider you legally married.  We're getting married in the Mayan Riviera and neither of us have been married before.  The day after we arrive, we meet with the wedding planner and our 4 witnesses to get the paperwork process started and do our bloodwork (keep in mind, we are doing a legal ceremony in Mexico, not just a symbolic ceremony)...the WP takes care of getting the paperwork to the right office and making sure it's back to the resort in time for the wedding three days later.  

 

The lady in vital statistics here said that they don't need the certificate translated, but if/when I want to change my last name and identification, those agencies MAY need the certificate translated.  She suggested I contact places like my bank, the passport office, a driver's license issuer, etc. to find out exactly what they need to proceed with name changes.  I likely won't be changing my name so I haven't really looked into it further.

I picked up FI plan B from Tommy's. They had an okay selection of short sleved shirts, but not much if you are planning on having them wear long sleve, plus they are super expensive!

 

Lots of couples on here have had great luck with studiosuits.com, that where we ordered Plan A from!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
