Don't know about the other resorts, but I know Excellence did not charge extra. It was just a courtesy because the judge had such a busy schedule.
This option was also available for my resort. I would defitenly talk to the coordinator and see if you could arrange something like this. Good luck!

He looked so happy when I told him he was in charge of that day. From the smirk on his face, I have a hunch how we'll be spending it smile41.gif

Morgan, your making legal day sound like fun.

 

I emailed my coordinator and asked what my options are. I never knew that signing the papers with the judge and holding your ceremony later were options, i'm so glad you girls told me about that. I hope my resort will do this too. But getting married home and having symbolic away, is starting to sound very tempting. Hmmm. Decisions decisions...

Danielle, i think there are lots of great options here.

 

Morgan - you make me wish I was having a wedding day and marraige day! That sounds so romantic the way you describe it.

I would do this too....1pm is not going to work with your reception plan and it sounds like a hassel for most of your guests. If there dressed up for your ceremony what would they do in between that and the reception...what would you do?

Good luck Danielle! Just tell Kelly that you have all these events planned and how would fire dancers look in the bright sun lol You think she'll do it if you switch to a symbolic?

Thanks! I'm super excited about it now too. I love that it started as just a way to save money & time. Now it has turned into something we are truely anticipating. Sometimes I just says "marriage day" in a sexy voice & Mike smiles. It's so hard to keep the wedding day as a celebration of the two of you when there is so much going on. I know its can be done, it just takes effort. I've heard people say the wedding feels like a whirlwind. Marriage day will be for focusing on us, with no distractions. bunny_4.gif

kelly the wc at palma real emailed me back with two options:

 

1. get married in US legally and have symbolic at palma real with the time I want.

 

2. on the day of our wedding, sign the papers with the judge in kelly's office than have the ceremony later in the day at the time I want.

 

derek is leaning towards getting married legally in US first, i'm leaning towards signing papers with judge on same day as ceremony. But we haven't had a chance to really to talk about it fully yet. We are going to talk about it when i have some time off work.
