YAY got my final bill woo hoooo but........lol there is always a but, I also sent in my ceremony and Zulma told me I can't use it sad.gif that for a legal ceremony the one I have to use is this one, it will literally be 5 minutes and not very well written or translated well. I understand certain points have to be legal by why not be ale to include your own readings uggghhh Any past brides who did the legal thing have any advice?

HE REFERRED THAT “MARRIAGE IS THE ONLY LEGAL AND MORAL WAY TO FOUND A FAMILY, TO PRESERVE MANKIND, AND TO PREVENT  IMPERFECTIONS OF HUMAN BEINGS, WHO ARE ABLE TO  (fulfill their lives only) GET THE PERFECTION OF THE HUMAN RACE,  THROUGH MATRIMONY IN A CONJUGAL DUALITY. 

MEN AND WOMEN HAVE THE SAME RIGHTS, AND THEIR RESPECTIVES OBLIGATIONS.

BOTH OF YOU SHOULD HOLD ON TO MUTUAL RESPECT, FIDELITY, TRUST, CARING OF EACH OTHER, TENDERNESS, AND LOVE, MUCH LOVE. 

BOTH OF YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE GREAT RESPONSIBILITY OF BEING PARENTS OF FAMILY, SINCE YOU SHOULD PROVIDE YOUR CHILDREN WITH ATTENTION, EDUCATION, RESPECT, FOOD AND LOVE.  AND MOST IMPORTANT, YOU WILL BE A MODEL TO FOLLOW THROUGHT THEIR LIVES.

 

TO CONTINUE WITH THIS CEREMONY, I SHOULD ASK TO THE WITNESSES:

ARE   AND    PERSONS YOU KNOW WELL?

ARE THERE ANY OBJECTIONS FOR THEM TO BE JOINED IN LEGAL MARRIAGE?

 

, DO YOU ACCEPT __________   AS YOUR BELOVED AND WEEDED WIFE,

 TO LIVE TOGETHER IN THE ORDINANCE OF STATE OF MATRIMONY,    

TO LOVE AND TO HONOR, 

STAND BY HER SIDE IN GOOD TIMES AND IN BAD,

IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH,

ANDFOR SAKING ALL OTHERS

KEEP YOURSELF ONLY UNTO HER

FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?          

 

, DO YOU ACCEPT __________   AS YOUR BELOVED AND WEEDED HUSBAND…ETC.

                                                               

 NOW AT THIS SPECIAL MOMENT, YOU WILL EXCHANGEYOUR WEDDING RINGS.    AND SHARE YOUR VOWS.

 

            SIGNATURES AND    FINGERPRINTS

 

AND NOW, IN THE NAME OF THE LAW AND THE SOCIETY, AND WITH THE AUTHORITY GRANTED TO ME BY THE MUNICIPALITY OF PLAYA DEL CARMEN, STATE OF QUINTANA ROO, MÉXICO,  I DECLARE YOU HUSBAND AND WIFE.

 

YOU MAY KISS YOUR WIFE.

Not a former bride so I don't have any advice, but I will say that when I read what the legal wedding script had to be, it definitely convinced me to do a symbolic ceremony! That way I can tailor the sayings/readings and sand or stone blessings to how I always envisioned my day going.. Something to consider at least!

 

I have heard other brides who did the legal wedding, and also recited their own vows as well. Surely they will allow you to at least do that at some point in the ceremony. Good luck!

I leave exactly 2 weeks from today!  I'm SO ready....all im waiting for is my chair sashes and my place cards for the guests (which I'm going to attach to maracas).  DO NOT order anything from Diva Girl Designs.  I ordered Sashes from them about 6 weeks ago (picked them because of this color I really wanted and couldn't find).  She kept saying 2 more weeks, 2 more weeks...and barely even a sorry!  If you don't have the product just say so!  Supposedly I'm getting them by Friday.


I order my chair sashes from http://www.weddinglinensdirect.com/. They came in super fast and they were a great price. I'd recommend them if you need an alternative. Good luck!

Ugh crappy! If they fall through on you, i used these folks: https://www.weddingslinen.com/index.php . Placed two separate orders with them and had sashes and table overlays within a week.

I was really, really wanting tres leches cake :-( ..she couldnt explain why (she said she wasnt sure how to translate). Sigh. Did you get an upgraded cake? How did you choose the caramel and coffee filling (sounds delish!)

 

Does anyone else have the luxury package? We paid (for non-real guests) an additional 80 pp for reception, 20 pp for cocktail and 20 pp for cake/champagne toast? Is that last charge right? I see a charge of 10 pp in the previous package, but nothing about 20 pp in luxury for champ/cake. Weird.  (and 10pp for hot canapes) So 130.00 pp for non real ...yikes ....4 so far

 

Hi Lisa,

I have the luxury package and my WC never quoted an additional charge for the cake/champagne toast, but I never specifically requested a champagne toast. I wonder if the extra price is because of the champagne. We're not going to have a champagne toast. It doesn't seem worth it when some people don't drink champagne and there's an open bar so people will already have drinks in their hands!

I signed my contract in January, so I got the rates from last year. I'm paying $20 pp for the cocktail and $60 pp for the reception for our non-resort guests. We have 11 so far!  When I got my final bill they were trying to charge me a higher rate for non-resort guests, but I asked the WC to change it back to the prices that were quoted when I signed my contract. It was not a problem at all.  You should double check the prices that were posted when you signed your contract and make sure they give you those prices. Don't let them get away with increasing the prices on you!

Heidi - It is a little confusing...they list is as "The Royal in Playa del Carmen", so it's in T instead of R.  Weird but it works!

 

The ceremony thing definitely sucks!  I wanted to have mine mostly custom since I'm doing symbolic. But my WC said that it's "not recommended" ugh.  I'm just going to throw a couple of things in that i want them to say.  I'm scared of it being 100% custom and them messing it up.

 

I just figured out what we're doing for legal...My stepmom is a notary and will "marry us" right before us & our immediate families leave to go to the airport for our trip.  It's basically a 30 second ceremony that says... "Even though you are taking your vows in Mexico in several days, you are entering the commitment of marriage in the State of Florida".  glad that is figured out!

Natalie - if you're having a symbolic wedding - have a special guest perform the ceremony for you. We're having a close friend perform ours (we already did the legal part) and my WC said we could do whatever we want if we went that route - plus saving yourself $400 on a civil servant or judge to perform for you. Unless you have the free wedding - then that person is included.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
