Im no longer doing the civil ceremony because I couldnt get a 2nd copy of my birth certificate in time. So Wilma sent me the symbolic ceremony script. I have to say, I like this one better. We were hoping for a more religious ceremony and the symbolic script is exactly that. :)

My photographer actually has a list on his website of the requirements -- http://www.octaviomontes.com/doctos/Wedding%20%20Legal%20Requirements.pdf  -- but it should also be in the document that the WC sent you about your wedding. 

 

The PA site says the processing time is 7-10 days??  I think you should be fine!!

For Jersey, the vital statistics website said something like 6wks turnover time. Ridiculous!!! If you go through townhall in the city you were born, they can do it same day. The problem with FH and I, we dont live in the states in which we were born so we couldnt get new certified copies of our birth certificates. You have 3.5 months to go so youll definitely be fine if you take care of it now.

maybe they have different judges or maybe either Wilma or Yesenia have out dated copies. As long as they are not too different then Im not gonna stress it. I really like the religious aspect of it. Im so happy with the new wording. :)

Do you know at what part during the ceremony you can do the sand ceremony?  I'm gonna ask but I thought maybe someone here already knows.

On a side note - I did hear from Wilma that the resort has hurricane vases that we are able to use for no additional costs.  I that I was going to have to buy my own and bring them down and I am super excited that I don't have to now.
