1) Could you please tell me the order of the legal ceremony? I need it in order to design our program.
Reading of marriage license
Speech
Rings- vows
Signing of license
Declaration of wedding couple


2) We are doing a sand ceremony and having a family member read it for us as you suggested. When will the sand ceremony take place in the ceremony (before or after vows)?
After signing the license

3) Please send me a copy of the vows we will say.
Each justice of peace has different ones, we donâ€t know who will come

claudia also confirmed that we will get the dreams eternity honeymoon package complimentary because we qualify, which is nice. however, she won't let us do the buffet with only 33 people. there is nothing i can pick that will be good for everyone. i don't know what to do. every single entree has seafood except the chicken from the silver menu.
I am shocked that you finally got this! Score one for all the legal dreams brides!! I decided to just plan when I get there; I'm done trying email. Too many othr things to worry about...

Anyway, I emailed Claudia and she assured me they had enough staff. "Destination" took the 7 o'clock slot so I changed my wedding to 5 (to feel more comfortable). the time of year you are getting married is very popular so do not be surprised if there is more than one wedding on your day especially Friday and saturdays. If I could go back I would have scheduled the wedding on a thursday...JJ!
I feel so horrible that I did this to you. To b clear; when I scheduled the wedding I did not know there was another one that day. If it is any consolation, we really wanted the 12th, but it was the only day they wouldn't give us (I assumed because they already had one planned this day, I did not know they were putting our weddings so close together at all. I'm kinda late with everything I do, so no dead bodies please. Take your time and tell Claudia not to worry about me. We're doing pics first and frankly don't mind a sunset ceremony. FI's parents would probably like it better! I feel really bad about this, but have the date printed on so many things I can't change it now!! Please blame Dreams, not meoops.gifoops.gif

I gave up the DJ to save myself some money. I rented the sound system and it came with the guy to work it and the lights outside. I was surprised that they provided the lights.

They would have scheduled another wedding that day regardless. It just so happens that you both are on this forum. The only day I did not see any weddings was on Sunday but the rest of the days there was a wedding in early afternoon, late afternoon and evening. No way to really avoid this.

If you think about it, most places that you'd have your wedding at, at home, have at least 2 weddings per day, one in the late morning/afternoon, and one at night, they're no different.



We used Aqua for my husbands deep sea fishing trip, they had a good time, the ones that didn't get sick at least!
That's good to hear because we were a little nervous about picking a random place for the deep sea fishing trip. I already asked my doctor if she could write me a prescription for the patches people wear on cruises to avoid sea sickness becuase I am sure that will be an issue.

Really?? That makes me even happier that I am going with the sound system. I had no idea they gave you lights :-)
That's awesome.

Did anyone here skip the cocktail hour? What did/will your guests do instead? FI was against paying for free drinks and food so were not having it. Also bc I decided to buy a different dress and gave up on the cocktail hour...haha.

My wedding is in November and I am skipping the cocktail hour. Many girls on this site have done it and said that their guests had cocktails at the lobby bar while the bridal party took photos.

Since it is already included in the wedding package price, make sure they comp you some other things to compensate. You should be able to negotiate based on drinks and apps for one hour and live entertainment. Look at the price list and see what that entitles you to.

hey maria- did Cecilia give you the trade of cocktail hour for 15 extra ppl covered at dinner? how many guests do you have coming? i still have no idea but it would be nice to have the option to trade...

I guess I was assuming that she would just deduct the amount of the cocktail hour from the wedding contract...I guess I will have to find out what she will do. I'm sure it says in this thread what Claudia has done in the past, but I can't read through all 3000 posts again!

in the past i believe she has traded it out for some additional guests at dinner or maybe one extra hour of reception. however, it's never worth your time to "assume" anything LOL, nor to concern yourself with what they've allowed others to do. they are very inconsistent and will often agree to a certain trade for one couple, but not another. claudia seems to be harder to convince than the other WCs. also good to note is that they won't give you the full cost of any individual items or services that you choose not to use, because as part of the package deal you're getting it at a reduced rate ... if that makes sense.

that said, make sure you get all the trades/credits that you can get them to agree to confirmed in writing. once your WC agrees to it, they can't take it back! :)

    • 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.
