Planning a wedding involves making lots of decisions, and the process of planning can be hectic to say the lease, especially if you’re planning to get married in a foreign country. When planning a Dominica Wedding, there are three very important things that you need to remember that will help make the process much easier:

One: Find a wedding coordinator or a marriage consultant who is already in Dominica. Ask around as to who gets the most recommendations from past couples who had a Dominican Wedding. Hiring a local planner is best, that way it would be easier to negotiate and arrange bookings, check venues and accommodations. (Wedding Coordinators and Marriage Consultants in Dominica)


Two: Make sure to check out all your wedding options, as to the wedding venue, reception, food, entertainment and photographers so that you get the best of everything. Dominica offers many options and all of them just perfect so you would find that it is a headache just to choose between all the different venues and catering services available.

Three: Next is that you need to process necessary documents prior, especially if you are a foreigner. Documents can be tricky so make sure to have them ready beforehand. At least one member of the party must be in Dominica for a minimum of two (2) days prior to the ceremony.(Legal Requirements when getting married in Dominica)
