Majestic Colonial and/or Elegance in Punta Cana Ceremony Times.. Or any input, please.

Recommended Posts

My travel agent is asking me what our ideal ceremony time would be so that she can see if it is available.... We are wanting to do the ceremony and then take pictures with everyone, etc.. And then go to dinner.. I believe the dinner times start at 6 or 6:30.. And we didn't want to have to wait several hours between the ceremony and dinner...

 

Our date, we hope, is Wednesday May the 29th, 2013.

 

What ceremony times are you ladies doing or thinking about??...

I also got married in May (in Jamaica) and we had our ceremony at 5 pm and our rehearsal dinner was probably at 6:30 or 7?  We went directly from the ceremony to pictures and then to the reception.  The timing was pretty perfect, I thought.

 Ahh.. okay. Thanks for sharing!.. Our only two options were 12 or 6:00 for the date we chose, so of course we went for 6:00. I read the sun begins to set at 7:05 and the restaurant opens around 6:30 so I'm hoping this will be perfect! :o)

We are booking at this resort and I have finally got a date of May 13, 2013 at 3pm.  We have been finding it hard to secure the Judge in the Dominican seeing as they only have 2 in the Punta Cana area.  But finally today we got the news that we have secured the judge and the time.  I would have liked it later in the day - but we are taking what we can get.

 

Hope yours works out too and good luck...

 Congrats!!.. I heard there was only 1 judge.. but that's good there is 2! We were planning on doing a civil ceremony.. But my TA and ME's WC was totally against it.. So we opted for getting legally married in the states.. and taking our certificate to ME so the wedding coordinator could perform our ceremony and "marry us"  we aren't going to tell anyone we are going this route.. But really it will be just the same.. I read reviews of the judge changing times and dates and since I have plastered my date and time on everything and to everyone I didn't want it to change.. But I hope it isn't like that anymore!

 

Are you doing the Chapel, Beach or Gazebo?

 

My TA confirmed to me today that we are confirmed for The Gazebo at 6:00 on May 29th, 2013!! :o)

 I originally wanted 5:00.. but 6 is close enough.. Cooler, def sounds better to me!! 

Are you having your ceremony at ME? :o) sorry, If I've already asked.. I can't keep up with all my ME brides (never thought there would be soo many PC brides!) so I'm putting them on my calendar in my wedding binder.  :o)

Freaking out!!!

 

I contacted ME yesterday to find out what symbolic ceremony times they had available from May 5th-12th 2013 that were after 4pm ... they only had one ceremony available on the 9th @ 1pm.  I couldn't believe it.  So I inquired about the next available date with a late afternoon wedding .... not until May 21st.  So I inquired about April .... the only day they had after 4pm was April 11th .  This cannot be right.  There is noooo way that every day at 5:00pm is filled already for April and May next year.  That is insane.  Not sure what I'm going to do now!

 OMG... there is no way!!..   Are you working with a TA?   I've heard them mention to people they only reserve wedding dates with the brides Travel Agents... Maybe certain travel agents block times or are alotted so many?.. Im not sure, but I def agree there is no way they are that booked up.. If you are using a TA, who are you using?

My understanding is that they leave the late afternoon spots open during the high peek wedding season for civil ceremonies.  It seems that the symbolic ceremonies are generally earlier in the day. 

 

I'm getting married here on 9/15.  We do that the 4pm time slot on the beach but I was originally told that it was reserved for civil ceremonies.  September is a slow season for them though, so I'm assuming that is why we are able to do our symbolic ceremony.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
