wedding day was at Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana on June 11, 2007. We had an amazing day! Everything was well organized and we did not have to worry about anything. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and were married 2 days later on the Monday. We didn't really know what to expect, but as soon as we arrived the wedding co-ordinator took very good care of us. It was the most stress free planning I ever had to do! The best part was we were able to enjoy the rest of our vacation with 30 of our closest family and friends.
I highly recommend destination weddings to all my friends getting married and Domincan is certainly one of the places I advise them to go.
` Thanks for all your help!

Andrea and David Eccles

Thank you to the staff at Dominican Republic Services. You helped make a potentially stressful time relaxed and uncomplicated. We had a beautiful, perfect wedding that we hardly had to lift a finger to plan. We would recommend getting married in the Dominican Republic to all couples planning a wedding and to use tour services.

Kristin & Greg Biggs

We were married April 5th, 2007 at Ocean Sands Golf and Beach resort in Punta Cana.
We meet with the wedding coordinator and photographer before the wedding to arrange all the details. We had beautiful flowers, a Caribbean trio, champaigne, cake, and an excellent dinner. It all came together better than we could have imagined!!
Thirty five family and friends came with us for the week. Everyone had a great time and are planning another group vacation for January.
We loved our wedding and are so happy we went to Ocean Sands!!

Erin and Joe Perry

Our experience at the Superclubs Breezes Resort was excellent from beginning to end. We were married in this tropical paradise with 24 of our closest family and friends in attendance. The entire week was filled with fun, sun, laughter and romance. The perfect beginning to married life. We would highly recommend the DR as a wedding destination.

Isabel & Garth Delaney

In conclusion, Matt and I wouldn’t of want anything different. It was the most perfect way of ending our separate lives and to begin our new lives together. A complete fairy tale we must say….Thank you to the Dominican Republic for allowing our dreams come true.

Matt & Crystal Doyle

We got married in the beach at the beautiful Riu Bachata Resort in Puerto Plata. Our wedding was perfect…it was better than we ever dreamed of. Nerys was our wedding coordinator, she was great, we met with her for about an hour to go over the final details and the only other thing we had to do was show up. Nerys handled everything and everything went as planned. We opted for the musical trio instead of a CD, it really added a special touch to our ceremony. We danced our first dance “It your Love” and then the trio played La Bamba and all our friends and family danced. It was so much fun, everyone had a wonderful time. It was very relaxing and beautiful we wouldn’t change a thing.

Paul & Loriann Neil

Your office prepared the wedding documents for our wedding that was on April 3rd, 2008 in the Dominican Republic! It was amazing and thanks for al,of your help.

Andrea Coimbra

My husband and I have been Fortunate in our lives and have had opportunity to travel to many Caribbean destinations, and Bavaro Beach is the most beautiful spot either of us has ever seen. The beach is like no other! “Punta Cana is a little piece of heaven here on earth.”

William Wilkins & Jaime Bursey

To get married away was the best decision we've ever made. All we can say is that we picked the most perfect spot in the Dominican Republic. We tied the knot in the Gazebo at the Riu Bambu resort in the beautiful Punca Cana. It was a great pleasure to meet with Magnolia (Riu resorts/' wedding coordinator). We had a half-hour meeting with her to work out the details and then went back to the beach. She did an excellent job organizing our wedding day.
Michael, the photographer, did a phenomenal job. We got the 24 pictures that came with the wedding package, but they were all so beautiful that we had to purchase the whole CD with about 150 photographs. And we can't forget all the work that Martha put into our wedding day here at the Dominica Republic Services.
Thank you for taking care of our legal papers before and after the wedding. Everything was perfect! We have lots of great memories of our wedding day and we can't wait to go back to celebrate our 1-year anniversary.

Along with 34 close family and friends, we recently had the delightful experience of a destination wedding. From the moment we got off the plan in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, we realized that all our fears and uncertainties of getting married abroad were unnecessary. It was not only the most unforgettable, fairy tale day, it was most unforgettable, fairy tale week. Everything was easy, from the planning of the ceremony and reception with the help of a resort coordinator, down to the after math of receiving our marriage certificate from the Dominican registry. If you are considering having a destination wedding, we encourage you to do so in the Dominican – it is heaven on earth!

Mr. and Mrs. Vani

We had a beautiful wedding in the Dominican Republic. Although we had trouble with paperwork and our hotel when we returned to Canada. The Dominican Republic Consulate helped us tremendously and was the reason that we received all of our paperwork correctly. Thank-you!!!

Shawn & Audrey Beaver

Carlos Belanger and I, Melissa Moniz, were married on January 30th, 2008 at the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana. It was lovely day; we were married in the gazebo at 6 pm. We had 26 guests travel with us to our tropical destination to take part in our special day with us. We had two bridesmaids, and two groomsmen, along with two junior bridesmaids. We celebrated our vows with a wonderful reception at the steakhouse by the ocean, the weather was perfect! It truly was the happiest day of our lives!

Carlos Belanger and Melissa Moniz

A testament to their stellar work ...
D.R.S.I.'s attention to documentation, detail and deadlines is held together by an infallable sense of professionalism and strong work ethic. They did all the footwork in record time, satisfying all the requirements of authorities here and abroad. It made for some pretty stress-free wedding preparations. Should you decide to use them, you'll be in good hands.
We were married in a lovely private ceremony surrounded by friends and family at The Victoria Beach and Golf Resort in Puerto Plata, on Decembe 27th, 2008. D.R.S.I. deserves serious consideration to anyone interested in planning their wedding abroad, in the Dominican Republic.

Gioconda and Humberto Martinez

We married on October 4, 2008.
We used your services to translate and legalize our wedding documents. The service was great and we would recommend it to anyone. Unlike the other testimonials we did not marry at a hotel. My husband is Dominican and we planned and arranged our own wedding. We married at Long Beach, Puerto Plata, and had our reception at our friend's bar in San Marco. It was a beautiful day and everything went very smoothly. All of our family enjoyed themselves tremendously and it is a day we will never forget. Now we are looking forward to the rest of our lives in Canada. Thanks for all your help!!!

Tanya and Marcelo Almonte

We were married
on April 3, 2007 at the Ocean Sand Golf & Beach Resort in Punta Cana, Domincan Republic. The experience was more than we could have asked for. We traveled to the resort with 14 of our closest friends and family, and everyone had a wonderful time. Our wedding co-ordinator was very helpful and really made us feel welcome and helped us to make our day special. She helped us pick the music and the flowers, and also arranged for champagne and a breakfast for our group after the ceremony. We just celebrated our second anniversary, and we hope to return to the resort within a few years to bring back the wonderful memories!

Jana & Jarrett

We got married
on September 25, 2009. We used your services to translate and legalize our wedding documents. My husband Henry is from the Dominican Republic, so we didn't get married at a hotel. We were married through Justice of the Peace in Puerto Plata, on a very beautiful day, with only our witnesses present. Henry and I are very thankful for your assistance in making our day special, and recommend your services to anyone. We look forward to spending our life together in Canada.
Hai Hai, Gracias, Thank You

Sue & Henry Urena-Martinez

My fiancé, Domingo Garcia Vasquez and I, were married on November 27th, 2010 at Nagua Beach, in the Dominican Republic. We had a civil ceremony performed by Dr. Juan Fabio Lopez Frias. A reception took place in San Francisco de Macoris, following the ceremony. Many friends and family attended both functions. We all celebrated and had a wonderful time together.

Thanx for all your help with our wedding paperwork!

Lina & Andre

Tim and I got engaged in July 2013 and knew almost immediately that we wanted to get married in a tropical location. His mother suggested Punta Cana, and after seeing her pictures from a recent visit, we were sold! We started looking into the procedure to get married in the Dominican Republic and our wedding consultant at the resort suggested contacting Dominican Republic Services, for translating services etc. As we got closer to the wedding day, we prepared all the documents neccessary and sent them via courier service to Dominican Republic Services. Our documents came back in a timely fashion... but the courier services had damaged some of the documents upon return to us. I spoke with my wedding coordinater and she unfortunatley informed me that due to the water damage, the judge would not accept our documents. With very little time until the wedding, my fiance and I were very distressed. I contacted Elena at Dominican Republic services immediately and she quickly came to our rescue. She had me return all the documents back to her (I used a different courier this time), and for suprisingly minimal fee, she not only ended up redoing all of our documents for us, she even had them back in our hands with time to spare before the wedding! It was such a relief to know that we could go forward with the civil wedding ceremony like we wanted. I am amazed with the generousity and willingness to help a stranger at such an important time in one's life. I cannot thank Elena and Dominican Republic Services enough! And needless to say, the ceremony went on without a hitch, and on Match 19, 2014 in front of the beautiful Punta Cana ocean with our closest friends and family by our sides, Tim and I were married!

Bryan and Candice Dunlop

We, Craig Alan Irvine and Celine-Marie Gauthier were married in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic on Thursday, December 4, 2oo8. Our wedding ceremony was held at 4pm on the Barcelo Beach at the Barcelo Bavaro Caribe Hotel. It was a perfect day with friends and family in attendance (aprox. 40 people), the weather couldn't have been better; it wasn't too windy and there were only a few clouds in the sky. We were married by the Punta Cana judge, and translations were given by the resort coordinator, Marlena Rejon.
After the ceremony, the wedding photographer from "Tropical Pictures" gathered everyone up for photos. Our private photos followed shortly after the group shots. At 5:30pm us and our guests were shuttled from the beach via a small motorboat to the "La Barcaza Restaurante" where we remained for five hours enjoying a wonderful reception. While on the Barcaza we had dinner, speeches, cake cutting and dancing. Having our reception on the "La Barcaza" was a perfect add on to our destination wedding. Once back on land, which was shortly after 10:30pm, we made sure the party continued on. Everyone headed to the Discotheque, which was located directly on the resort property and we danced the night away.
We had a fantastic wedding with many memories that will be long remembered for years and years to come. If you have any questions in regards to the day we were married please do not hesitate to contact us at our home phone number (867) 920-7684.

My new husband and I got married in a romantic beach Gazebo at the Grand Bahia Principe Resort in Punta Cana. It was truly the happiest day of my life and we could not have done it without the help of Elina. We would like to thank DRSI Team for taking such great care of us. DRSI kept us in the loop and always got back to me right away. It is rare to receive such wonderful customer service and we are very grateful!
Thank you.
