I didn't think a judge was needed for a symbolic ceremony, so I e-mailed back and asked if we actually needed a judge. She said "No, you need a minister!" I am getting frustrated! I can't get straight answers or explanations!
We are having a symbolic ceremony and no judge is necessary. Our WC even told us that. We are bringing our own minister down to officiate our marriage and the WC said that was fine. I would talk to them again because it really isn't necessary to have a judge if you're only doing a 'symbolic ceremony.' Maybe she misunderstood your email?

I agree with everyone else. I was told that the judge is not necessary for a symbolic ceremony. The minister will be provided by the resort, so you dont need to worry about going out and trying to book one yourself.

 

Through my DW search, I have learned that by emailing various coordinators, some things often get lost in translation. I even encountered a coordinator that utilized an online translator, and our messages weren't very clear to each other.

 

I learned that you must be VERY VERY precise and as clear as possible in what questions you ask the coordinators. I have found it easier to break the questions down and # each one, it seems to work very well with their responses. Remember, communication is key. But when planning a DW, you have to kind of over-communicate, especially via emails.

It looks like they pushed the gazebo back until a next year's project. The coordinator didnt specifically say when. But you have to remember, they are on 'island time', so next year could essentially mean December 09.

We have booked with the judge for Jan 3 , 2009. We were thinking of having a friend translate the ceremony, as well. Take a look at Humanist cermonies online. The wording is very nice. Our friend had a humanist ceremony and it was beautiful.

worried2.gifHave any of the other EdenH brides had a hard time getting a hold of the WC? I'm trying to book the wedding date and time for a week now and haven't heard anything back yet. What has your experience been? Should I be nervous about the cerimony? It's not until January 2009 so plenty of time, but I want to make sure I get the date and time that I want.

It took her a couple weeks to get back to me the first time I wrote to her and now it usually takes up to a week to get an email back......If it's taking more time for you I'd maybe get your travel agent to get in touch with the resort.

It's frustrating using e-mail! When I first requested a date she requested this with the judge, which I don't need since it's a symbolic ceremony. So now we are back at the beginning requesting the date with the Minister. I have asked for January 8, 2009.
