What do you wear for legal church ceremony before actual destination wedding?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I need help. I am getting married this year in December in Punta Cana. However, we will be doing legal catholic church ceremony at home Calgary AB. We will keep it small 20 guest just immediate family and bridal party with casual cocktail reception to follow.

 

I don't know what to wear to the church. Do I wear white? Or just a formal outfit? Do we have to do full mass? Anyone who got married in Catholic church, do you know if can get married during a week instead of weekend?

 

I would appreciate any ideas and advices.

 

Thank you,

 

Anna

Hi! I too am getting married in December in Punta Cana and am having my legal church ceremony at home two days before I leave. This is a "don't do what I'm doing" post.

My fiances family does everything over the top, so of course now the church is turning into this big to do, with a dinner afterwards that is costing over 5000, 50 (close family only originally turned into extended family and friends who can't make it to the destination) people are coming and because I want to keep my DW special I refused to wear my wedding dress. So someone his aunt convinced me that she would buy me another dress, at the time I got all swept up into getting another gorgeous wedding gown, but now I wish I had put my foot down and kept it to just our immediate family (i.e. parents) and wore a white short dress or suit. Now I have two weddings, way more stress, and it isn't the simpleness that my future husband and I imagined. I am still excited because I am going to keep it christmas themed and make it more of a christmas party dinner but it still isn't what we originally wanted and that definitely puts stress on both my fiance and I. Hope that helps!

 

P.S. Where and when are you getting married?

We are getting married on Dec 3d at the Majestic Elegance 5pm beach ceremony. How about you?

 

By the way, thank you so much for sharing your experience and thoughts. Your story sounds like something I am trying to avoid. I was also thinking to hear a short white dress or suite. I already have one special dress, so I am trying to be proper for church and ceremony. 

 

Good luck with all your plans, britb618! And the end of the day, we will get married and it will be great!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
