They should have went to Cuba at least there they know how to properly treat their tourists and their much loved tourist dollars.

That'll teach you not to have destination weddings. A standard wedding is expensive enough.

Because some people are selfish douchebags who think that a marriage is all about them and everyone should be glad to pay $2000 to fly to another country to see a ceremony that could have been done in someone's backyard.

For a country where tourism is so key, it's pretty damn stupid to bite the hands that feeds you in such a way.  But beyond that where the hell was the support from the Canadian Embassy?

who is a marriage about if not the people getting married?

I went to a destination wedding in Scotland and it was one of the most enjoyable weekends of my life. The couple then had another reception in NY for the people who couldn't make it to Edinburgh. Another opportunity to get drunk on my man's dime.
 
2013-06-24 12:03:37 PM
Yeah... just a reminder that when you vacation in a third-world country, how god damn lucky you are.  The people who sell you drinks by the pool and fold those cute towel animals?  THIS is what they have to expect if something goes wrong for them.  And by "something" I don't just mean "they commit a crime".  More like "or they don't pay the right bribe to a cop, or a corrupt informant sets them up for money, or someone doesn't like their family".  That little kid handcuffed to his mom in jail could be their kid, only with no kind foreigners to feed him Doritos.

Tourism in places like DR is a ridiculous fantasy, you are relaxing by the pool in the middle of a sea of human struggle and misery.

/has vacationed in Cuba, doesn't kid himself that that was any different.

I don't know about Domincan prisons, but I can tell you this from personal experience: Domincan beaches are most definitely not awful.

Not the Jehovah's Witness prisons, although that's more like house arrest.

and when you're the place that everyone goes to on that island instead of the other half speaks volumes about how much shiattier Haiti is.

We really should annex Hispaniola and add it to the USVI. USVI are pretty shiatty themselves but are worlds better than that festering swamp

Saul Goodman: I have yet to hear anything remotely positive about visiting the Dominican Republic.


A friend of mine who runs a cigar shop has been down there to visit various cigar plantations. He loves it down there. But then again, he's on the plantations of very rich men and they're carefully herded from the airport to the plantation (and wherever else they go)
 
2013-06-24 12:18:34 PM
Destination weddings used to be the stamp of the nouveau rich. Now they are the weddings of people who have a credit card.

Just get married in your city. It will be more memorable that way.

RedTank:  But beyond that where the hell was the support from the Canadian Embassy?

There isn't any suggestion that the men were falsely arrested or illegally held, other than their own protestations. What additional support should/could the embassy have provided? It's clear from TFA that political pressure was brought to bear in this case, but the embassy doesn't have the power to tell local law enforcement how to do its job.
 
2013-06-24 12:20:15 PM
I went to the DR for a destination wedding at one of the many all inclusive resorts.

While it was fun, theres nothing specifically "Dominican" about it.  You're just on a nice beach in a nice place that could really be anywhere in the world as far as I knew.

Going outside the resort was a non-starter, it was depressing.

The fact they were white tourists in the Dominica Republic means they were arrested so the police could get bribes. And the laws there are what ever the police say are the laws.

Sometimes families want you to do an enormous wedding and invite people you've never met, then they refuse to pay a dime for the wedding. A destination wedding cuts to the heart of who wants to be there for the couple vs who wants a free party.

That may very well be the case. There still isn't anything the embassy can do, beyond political pressure, if they've been treated in accordance with local laws.

I'm not sure. I would love to know how it feels to be inside Dominica...

A) You're correct
B) Went to Jamaica for a college friends wedding. All expnses paid, etc etc. I really recommend against against smoking the local stash. Your bowels will thank me.
C) A big plus to this is having spent 2000 just to be a part of the ceremony, you no longer are needed to provide any form of a gift. My present is my presence.

And other people want nothing to do with the gaggle of hangers-on and family who insist on telling them how to run their own show, so perhaps they want to go somewhere unreachable so those stupid people can fark directly off. But yeah, more likely the first one. (Seriously, not flaming.)

Maybe overly judgemental of me but does it strike anyone else that the guy looks exactly like someone who would typically start a fight? Everything about this guy (at least in the photo) screams "I hope someone messes with me so I'll have a legitimate excuse to F them up."

The cousin on the other hand, looks like a poor kid who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

We'll be going on a destination wedding...to florida. My fiancee's sister is a marine biologist, marrying another marine biologist, and they both work there, so it's not really a destination for them. However for the rest of us... yeah. Darn us yuppies!
