Help! Please. I am getting married in 7 weeks, I have just seen your messages regarding birth certificates and now I am in a panic. Both myself and my partner have the actual certified copies which we had to order but haven't done anything else with them do we need to? We are having translations done in resort. I am worried. Can anyone help please? Thank you

I've contacted my agent Thomas cook today they have confirmed that if we get translations done in Mexico we do not need to get the embassy to do anything beforehand in the uk it will all be done there. Panic over!

Hi ladystardust- yes we got our b certs ordered through GRO. If you choose to get trans done in Mexico that's all you need to do however should you choose to get them trans over in uk you have to send to embassy for them to stamp once trans is complete. It works out just as cheap to get it done there. I was panicking for a while. It's all going well thanks for asking, costing much more than imagined though with lighting for terrace, decorations etc I hoped to take my own bit at £100 usd per table I decided to go with Zuniga who are providing the lighting. I am sure it will all be wonderful. To be honest I thought that we would just turn up and sort everything out there. It's a shame that hasn't been the case. I am feeling nervous about it all turning out - sure will be great and worrying about nothing. How are your plans going?

That's a relief, yes the costs are going up all the time but I suppose if you weigh it up against what we will spend at home, it def won't seem as much xx It will all be worth it and just do what feels right for you. How many guests do you have??? Things are finally starting to get moving now, dresses all done, just H2b who is not sorted but he leaves everything til the last minute and Im leaving him to it lol x

That's right, if we were to get married here alone without a honeymoon it would be more. Have you been to moon palace before? We did 7 years ago and from that moment decided we would go back at get married but setting up and having a baby has put if off until now. We are thrilled that we are all going making it extra special. We are a total party of 14. I am very excited - 6 weeks to go! How many in your party?

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
