Document Requirements & Cost - Dominican Vs. Mexixo

Recommended Posts

Ok Brides..I need help! For those of you from Canada..

I know I can look this stuff up on the internet but I'd like some first hand information.

What is the different between the requirement for getting legally married in Dominican & Mexico. Also, what is the cost associated? How much work is it for each place and how much will it cost?


I've been hearing that Dominican is a lot of work and can cost between $600-$1000 for document translation.


I'd love some real life examples of what exactly you had to do for documents and the cost for both places! Thank you!!!

I think it's a lot of work in Mexico as well. I know that you have to pay to translate the documents from Spanish to English and blood work is also required. I'm having a symbolic ceremony to make life easier.

I'm having a symbolic ceremony as well. When I factored in the money to get married in Mexico legally it was just cheaper to do it at home. That's without counting the time you have to waste out of your vacation getting all the paperwork done and the blood tests. It's just more money and more of a hassle


If you decide to get legally married in mexico, a word of advice, make sure you get married with joint goods. Over there you have a choice and can specify of you're joining your goods or keeping them separate. Of course none of us is thinking well get divorced, but if it happens you don't want a loophole screwing you or your future hubby over.

    • 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.
