First - I just want to thank everyone. This message board is great! It has answered a lot of my questions and given me some ideas on how to spend my two weeks in paradise. I have a couple of quick questions though...
I will be getting married in AC in mid-June. I know that it is technically the rainy season. Will weather be a big concern? Is there a certain time of day that would be best to avoid for an outdoor ceremony?
Also, I know that I need to be in the country for 3 days. Is that 3 full days? We are planning on having the wedding on a Monday - will it be okay if we arrive sometime on Friday?
Sorry for the long post & thanks again!

Hi Laurie! I was there in early June of last year. It was very hot but the wind blew constantly. There were a couple of rain showers. They blew in and out quickly, and in our case came in the pre-dawn hours. Good sleeping weather. It never rained during the day but a couple of days it was overcast. That was OK because the sun is so intense.

You also have to do something about your license. You can't just be in the country.

I hope you plan on someone helping you with the wedding and the paperwork.

Good Wishes... smile

You can arrive on Friday and get married on Monday. My daughter did that last September. As NY Gal says, there are a lot of other condiderations too. We used Iraida at to help us. She did all the paperwork, arranged the minister, flowers and a photographer. She also helped us to decide where to stay and to have the wedding. We stayed at Carribbean Villas and had the wedding on their beach. Great place and a very pretty beach. My daughter wanted to get married at dawn on the beach since San Pedro is on the East side of AC, but it seems most mornings are cloudy and you really take a chance that you will have a pretty sunrise. She switched to a sunset wedding and it was beautiful (plus, we didn't have to get up at 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning) laugh It rained earlier in the day, but by sunset all rain was gone which, from reading this board, seems the way most rainy days are. Congratulations on your wedding. I'm sure you will have a great time on AC. cool Kathy

Thanks for all of the helpful advice. I really appreciate it.
I actually enlisted the help of Iraida months ago - and after reading all of these messages - I am really thankful.
We are staying at the Xanadu with all of our guests. We were hoping to do a sunset beach wedding - hopefully it will work out.
If anyone has any other suggestions/advice, I am all ears.....

I'm not one to give advice, but here goes. Since I recently celebrated my daughter's wedding, here is the advice. Relax, enjoy, chill and have a good time. It will be over way too soon. Don't get hyper, over envolved in all the planing. Take it easy. Don't turn into bridezilla. Good luck and have fun.

The legal rule is you must be in the country 3 business days before you can apply for the license and then receive it and have the ceremony the next day. That said, looks like someone did a Friday - Monday thing above but sounds questionable to me.

Do you know of anyone that I could contact to officially answer my question so that there are no doubts. I would hate to get there and not be able to go through with the wedding we've spent so much time planning.
We were going to purchase our airfare tonight or tomorrow and I'd like to know for sure before we do.
