Glad you got the marriage license figured out! I’m not even having a Destination Wedding and it’s one of my biggest issues right now >_<

Sounds like your wedding is going to be gorgeous! And you’ve really thought it through, that’s awesome. I’m totally jealous. 🙂 We get to go to PR a few weeks after the wedding (company “picnic” actually, honeymoon’s not for another 8 months), but the wedding’s a boring ol’ church wedding in TN. Wish I could do something as beautiful as yours! 🙂

Oh, and I love your avatar pic! So pretty!

Well I was born there (dad in military) and love the island.  It’s gorgeous.  Wishing you well and you’ll be a lovely bride Tmarie!

Incidentally, I just got my passport.  In it, it shows the place of my birth.  It states, Puerto Rico, USA.  So your wedding’s good.  License should be good too.  Just call the venue coordinator and make sure with her if there are any regional/province loopholes.  Like some states have you get blood tests or a waiting period, etc.  Check on that for me!

Wish you a wonderful wedding planning process and a beautiful day!

Hi there.

I am Puerto Rican and my entire family still lives there. As a matter of fact my uncle is a wedding photographer there and my other uncle works for the tourism/financial office of the current governor on the island.

I opted not to get married there for a couple of reasons. But I was baptised in the same church my parents had their first holy communion, confirmation, and wedding ceremony at. 

If you need destination wedding advice you can PM me. Do you still need a photographer? I would encourage you to call my uncle. Even if you don’t use him, he is a great resource of information to other photographers, wedding venues/sites, hotels.

Wow that looks pretty! Good find tmarie!

If we had gotten married in Puerto Rico I would have loved to have gone to El Conquistador- or have gotten married in the Catedral de San Juan then had the reception where my parents had their reception at which was the San Juan Hotel in Isla Verde. 

But with having so many people flying in- it made a little more sense to stay in California. 

Make sure you take the time to go visit El Yunque, Old San Juan (& the fortresses), the Camuy caves are amazing! I particularly enjoyed my time visiting the Palomar Islands & Viequez. 

I am sure your guests will enjoy the time with you there!  =o)

That is a beautiful venue.  I love El Conquistador!  It is beautiful, spent a week there once.  A cardiologist I used to work with had her wedding there.  Was fabulous!  Somewhere I have a pic of the most tiny orchid in the world and it grows in El Yunque!

I’m gonna google that spot tmarie!  That place is to die for!  There’s part of me that would still want to marry there.  I was born there, on my last trip there, I was pregnant with my son and now if we went back and married there it would truly be a "circle of life" kind of feel.

Alot hinges on my grandmother’s health.

Wow tmarie, what a beautiful spot for your Rehearsal Dinner. I would LOVE to get married in PR, it is a beautiful place & the people were so lovely & friendly when I was there a couple of years ago. Good luck with your planning, as you can see, the bees are buzzing about to offer any advice or insight to you that we can help with.

have a wonderful wedding in my dear island of Puerto Rico.  I am also having my wedding in Puerto Rico in November 2009.  I am originally from there but I have been living in Florida for 13 years now.  I am very excited, and I will be using the island’s country sites as inspiration for the wedding theme.  good luck…

I love your name too!  The coqui is such a cute little frog!  Can you upload a coqui avatar?

They sound so wonderful at night.  The last time I was there, on the last evening, I was coming home from dinner and one particularly adorable little green fellow was on my door!
