What are civil ceremonies?

Getting married in the Dominican Republic is becoming more and more popular each year, and it is not hard to see why. The warm, sunny weather, the golden sand beaches, the turquoise ocean waters, and the beautiful tropical plants and flowers provide an ideal setting for a very special and memorable day in one’s life. One of the best reasons to get married in the Dominican Republic is that you can enjoy your honeymoon in the same beautiful place you get married.
