Hello everybody I have a little bit of a dilemma – how many of you are getting married in the Dominican Republic? I would really love to get married there but I am also thinking about getting my marriage license here in the US and then going to DR for a Vowel renewal. But I donâ€t know what to do Iâ€m so confused.

 

Any help would be appreciated

We are gettign married in the DR in April, but signing the legal documents beforehand -- becasue it is easier AND a lot less expensive.

 

There are several threads on here about Vow Renewals and about DR marriages that should help you out a ton, but if there is anything else I can help answer, just let me know!

We are doing the legal stuff here before going to mexico for a ceremony. I like the idea of 2 wedding days. one will be just about us. The other will be a celebration with everyone. We will also be saving about $1,000 to do it this way & get to have the ceremony done the way we want. A lot of people have done the legal ceremony away & said it was fine.

 

There are many threads on the forum about deciding what to do. They helped me make my decision. Most people decide not to tell everyone incase it ruins to magic for some people. Those who I have told agree that's what we should do.

Depends on what you want. I wouldn't want to be legally married a whole year & not tell anyone. We plan on doing it the week before we leave. You do end up with a different date on your certificate. but even if we did it legally in mexico on a saturday, the date would be friday's.

I wouldn't do it a whole year ahead of time. The next year wouldn't seem like a wedding to me. The anniversary of our first date is May 13, and we got engaged a year later on June 13 -- so we're signing the legal paperwork on April 13 ... although our DR ceremony is April 19. We are just having a notary friend witness us signing hte marriage license and not doing any type of ceremony until the DR.

I wouldn't wait that long either, it might affect the price of your DR wedding. i know at our resort, for a 'free' symbolic ceremony, and to get the honeymoon suite price, you have to be married within 2 months I think.

something to thnk about for sure. Also, your guests probably won't think it so critical to go if it was a whole year prior.

My friend got married in DR 2 years ago and she had no problems with it. Actually, 2 of my friends got married there the same year. We are Canadian, so it might be different, but it did not cost them much at all, they did not even need to get the documents translated because the Canadian consulate in the DR approved them. So, it was really simple for them, they just had to wait for the documents to come back from the DR and then file them at home.

    • 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.
