Ceremony - What to Include?

Recommended Posts

I am getting married at Dreams PV in May and we are having a symbolic ceremony (legal marriage will be in the U.S. when we return). Now that my wedding is 4 months away (whoa!) I have started to realize I have NO idea what the ceremony should include. Dreams will provide us with an officiant, but do they have things that they say, or are you responsible for providing them with every word you want said? I've only really been to traditional church weddings so don't really know how to kind of wing it in regard to our own program and all that. 

 

I guess it may be nice to have a reading or something but I have no clue what I would want read. And I didn't consider us having to write our own vows, but if we don't, does the officiant have vows for us to recite?

 

Any help would be appreciated!

The beauty of scripting your own ceremony is that you can make it personalized to you and your groom.  The following thread should give you a good start: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/21660/share-your-ceremony-script

 

Like many DW resort locations, the officiant that they hire for your ceremony will typically have a script that they like to use; I would request a copy from your resort.  This will  give you the opportunity to make changes, additions or any special requests that you may want. 

 

Happy Planning!

I agree with Choco Taco, that is a great thread!  I have started to write my ceremony, and it has really helped me. If you are a crier, don't read the thread when you are at work!  So many beautiful scripts.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
