    Anyone else doing a symbolic wedding?  What exactly do we need to bring to prove we have been married legally in our home country?  In Canada you have to wait 10 weeks before you request a marriage certificate.  That would mean we would have to do this more than 3 months before our destination wedding.  I don't want to do it this far in advance.  Any way around this dilemma?

      Hi There!

       

      We decided to get the house DJ.  I read great reviews about him, that he kept everyone dancing the whole time and that it was a blast!  Our reception will be at the Wet Bar Terrace, so I think it will be a very beautiful spot for some dancing.  I believe it is only about 3 hours, so the cost for the DJ was $600.  We're doing the "free" See and Sea dinner, so we felt like we could splurge a little for the music!  :-)  Good luck!

            Hello ladies,

             

            Does anyone know of a website where I can view different Punta Cana photographers, their photos and their packages?  Do I have to email each one individually to get their information?

              I was told to bring my marriage certificate. Double check with your wedding coordinator, I know some things are changing for 2013.

                How did you decide between the colonial and the elegance ? What made you go with the Elegance ?

                 I chose the Elegance because it was newer and reviews stated the food and room decor was much nicer.. Many of our guests wont be traveling with children, and I read the Colonial has more families at their resort, which means a lot more children. We have maybe 5 children that will attend though. And I like my guests being able to have the option of staying in the adults only section that ME offers. Also, the price isn't much different between the two resorts. :o) Also, I wanted to get married at the Gazebo and I liked the one at ME better, not sure why since they are similar, just my sytle preference.

                   Sorry, I don't know all of the Photogs... But our top 3 picks, and have all worked with each other and on their own... They are from Canada, but don't charge travel fee's and there is no vendor fee.

                   

                  Phil Steingard, Michael Steingard, and Jamie Dimitry. Google them and it will take you right to their sites. :o) They are all 2600, I believe. I'll go look now for what their package includes.
