Carrie-Dreams DR

Wedding documents..

Recommended Posts

we are just doing it the easy way and getting married in the court house a few days before we depart for DR. this is going to be a 'hush hush' ceremony and no one will know about it and we will then be having a renewal of vows ceremony in the DR. many couples choose to go this route to avoid all the translation of documents and the costs. i think it costs a couple hundred dollars to translate the documents.

It's $290 for the documents, plus the $50 for the notarization of the stat. dec of status...we may do the symbolic ceremony too...

I just sent everything today to wedo, and we sent 240.00 total.

But, the notized paers we got free from our bank. Then its 120 a person to translate.

We are having the sand and civil ceramony so we did the paper work stuff.

 

I made copies- for my records incase something goes wrong..

After talking to the wedo people, the paperwork (on our end) doesn't sound like it's too much work. but the expense of paying for all the paperwork to get done and than paying for a legal ceremony is pretty high.

 

Getting married at a court house, seems like a pretty good idea. you would probably save yourself almost $1,000.

I got my papers back from wedo in no time. Less than 10 days!!

It is not that bad for US people.

It was 240.00 for the papers , and 85 after and than the judge is 750.00 at the resort.

Wow, 10 days. That was quick!

 

Does anyone know if you have to send the documents beforehand at a certain time? I think I read (but I cant remember where) it couldnt be more than 3 months than your date. Still trying to decide on whether to do civil or symbolic!!!

You might want to check with the wc from resort about when to send things. My wc is going to have us fax the info to her about a month before. I think it's basically just to check to make sure we have all the paperwork done and filled out.

Not sure the time frame- I think I read 90 days before. But, my stuff is back and in a folder for the resort now. It was really fast and they were so nice when I called

I am getting married at dreams and the WC said it would only be $300 for the judge. I so hope thatâ€s still true. She also said to send the paper work 2 months in advance. Good point about the fax, I am going to check that out as well. Thanks!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
