Symbolic Wedding Ceremonies

You may have done some research and found that having a legal Civil wedding in the Dominican Republic can be fraught with additional costs for the Judge, or that you have to or just don’t have the time to complete the array of translations and certifications required for a legal wedding.   Regardless if you booked a free wedding or not, the compulsory marriage validation, translation costs & Judge fees to perform the wedding are paid for locally and can amount up to $1000.  Many wedding couples are now choosing to be legally married in the UK followed by a symbolic wedding ceremony in resort with family and friends. Symbolic weddings are less costly, and a great choice for busy couples that prefer to bypass the gathering and completion of documentation required for a legally-binding ceremony in a foreign country.  The wedding package inclusions below are based on a symbolic wedding as all legal fees are paid in resort.

Civil Legal Wedding Ceremonies

If deciding on a full legal Civil wedding, do remember that when getting married in the Dominican Republic, you are required to have a number of document translations and apostilles on your wedding paperwork (at extra cost) as well as a Judge fee for him to conduct the legal wedding.  Regardless if you booked a free wedding or not, the extra costs for marriage validation fees, wedding certificate translation fee and Judge fees to perform the wedding are paid for locally and can amount up to $1000.  Please bear this in mind before committing to a legal wedding.  We feel that it is best to advise you of these additional costs.

Before you travel:

All documents listed above – except for passport, must be legalised by the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office.  Once legalised, we suggest using the services of ‘WE DO TRANSLATION’ to complete the wedding formalities.  They will translate all the documents into Spanish, endorse them with the Dominican Embassy and send them to the resort & hotel.  Please contact and pay them directly at:

www.wedo.com.do / isagon@wedo.com.do / Telephone: 001 809-383-2199

WE DO TRANSLATION costs – from US$180 per person.  Extra costs payable depending on number of documents.  If divorced or previous partner deceased an additional US$105 per person applies.  Couples must send documents to WE DO TRANSLATION 12 weeks before the wedding.  Please note that you are required to pay locally for the Judge to perform your legal/Civil wedding ceremony.  An approximate cost for this is US$540 (subject to change).   All original documents must be taken with you when you travel.

As Tropical Sky weddings have no jurisdiction over hotels/resorts/venues/legal requirements and their charges, we cannot be responsible for any increases or changes to these wedding arrangements.  We will, however, endeavour to advise you of changes as soon as we are made aware of them.  All prices and legal requirements correct as of June 2015.

Translation of documents.  All legal documents must be in English or legally translated into English. All translated documents must be from a legal translator with letterhead, stamp and seal from the translator's office or notarised by a Notary Public.  Occasionally the documentation will have to be sent to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for their approval before being sent back to the notary to sign.

The Wedding Ceremony.  In most destinations, your wedding ceremony will be conducted Monday to Friday (excluding local holidays).  In some destinations, local festivals and holidays will determine available wedding dates.  Generally, your wedding will take place in the grounds of the hotel unless otherwise specified.  Many hotels offer wedding gazebos for extra privacy.  Some hotels may offer more than one wedding per day with the first wedding taking place at around 10am with the last wedding at 4pm.  The majority of our weddings are conducted by a marriage officer whose title varies depending on the resort.  Where it is possible to be married by a Minister, the ceremony will be non-denominational unless otherwise stated and will be a civil wedding.
