    I think the judge speaks Spanish but it is translated. I don't understand why we aren't allowed to say our own vows after the judge legalizes everything.

      Hi Kat, I was told the same thing about the ceremony time. I was told by Paloma in March a year before my wedding I had 4pm at the Tulum gazebo now Jazmin tells me its unavailable and 3pm is now our time and meal at 5 30pm like yourself I dont want guests standing around waiting. I have sent her the origianl email I recieved from Paloma ages ago stating I had 4pm so I dont know how suddenly someone else can have that time. Its very frustrating as we had ceremony at 4 dinner at 6 reception at 8 all organised.

      Also, do we just pick one appetizer, dinner, desert for everyone? Or does everyone pick their own?? I'm eating at Tequila. 

       

      thanks :)

       

      I have a price list that I received from Arrecife a couple weeks back, I will post as attachments (since its in PDF format... sorry) and i'll PM it to Trisha so maybe she can update the "Official" thread.

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      As for meals, yes we were only given 1 option as well. We just picked the most neutral options that we thought the most people would like... we chose the filet at Arlequin. :)

        Does anyone know if there is more than one gazebo at the resort? If I tell guests the wedding is at the gazebo will they get lost? Same with the reception? How do I direct them to the correct pool?

        It is my understanding there is only the Tulum gazebo. Maybe you could photocopy the resort map for your guests and circle the gazebo, restaurant and after party location,

              First I was told my ceremony would be at 4pm - now it is switched to 3pm.

              Then I was told I could have dinner at 5:30pm, but now it is switched to 6pm.... I really dont want my guests wondering around aimlessly for a long time inbetween the ceremony. UGHHHHH

               

              Any suggestions? :(

               

              Also, wedding coordinator said we cannot have anything symbolic or personal tied into our legal ceremoy because the judge wont allow it. This I dont understand - because why does it matter if we want to do personal vows or have a poem read AFTER the legal stuff in complete?

               

              Thanks,

              Kat

              Hi Kat,

              That's strange I JUST received an email from Maria saying that I CAN use my own vows she wrote:

               

              "Absolutely, you can do you own vows, no problem for the Judge.

              The regular or tradicional vows used in the legal weddings are as followings and is up to you if you say the tradicional, your own vows or both, one by one. ;)

              " I give you this ring, as a symbol of my love and fidelity, I promise to be with you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, for as long as we both shall live…"

               

              I'm curious if this is maybe because you have a different judge than me?

               

              Emilie

                Which resort are you getting married at?

                Yes I really dont see how it could be a problem to do our own vows.... I asked Jazmin if we could even do our vows AFTER the legal marraige certificate signing, and have my cousin read a poem, and have the wedding coordinator read a poem.... and then pronounce us husband and wife.... SHE SAID NO TO THIS! I dont understand how - if its after - that it matters??? I feel so frustrated.

                  We're staying at the Coba but getting married at the Tulum Gazebo.

                    Hmm. I don't understand why jazmin said we can't incorporate unique things like: A moment of silence in remembrance of deceased loved ones Personal vows Couple of poems It's frustrating. And they keep changing my ceremony time and dinner time :(
