      she charges $2500 plus travel, I have already paid her travel but she says that we should work something out so that I would be compensated for part of the travel. The photos are amazing, did you get a chance to take a look at them on her website. I found out from another friend who just got married there that the same guy who takes pics of people with a monkey in playa del carmen is the guy they get at the resort to do the photos, they weren't at all professional quality, but it depends on what you want, i have always wanted to spend good money, at the end of the day thats all you have for memories of a day you spend soooo much time and energy on!!

        Below is the script for the legal ceremony.  This is exactly as I remember it, verbatim.  You cannot change anything or cut any of the legal script out but you are allowed to add "blessings and readings".  The parts that you add to the ceremony can be recited by whomever you choose.

         

         

        MEXICAN CIVIL MARRIAGE ADVICES

        ( TAKEN FROM OCAMPO’S LETTER )

         

        Ladies and gentlemen Good Afternoon, Welcome to the wedding ceremony, let me introduce the judge Alma Rosas, who will performance the ceremony in Spanish, and I will translate in english,

         

        According to the laws of this country we are gathered here to join the bonds of Matrimony which is an honorable status:

         

        Seeing it is a very important act, I would kindly ask everybody to remain in silence.

        As witnesses of this important act, there are present here:

        1. -  --------------------------------- 2. - ---------------------------------

        3. ----------------------------------- 4. - ---------------------------------

         

        Who will sign the marriage document.

         

        A great Mexican philosopher of the ninetheen century, Mr. Melchor Ocampo, wrote in his legendary letter, the following words that until today are always read in our wedding ceremonies “ marriage “, it says is the only legal and moral way to found a Family, to preserve mankind and avoid imperfections of the human being who are only able to obtain the perfection of the human race, through matrimony in a conjugal duality.

        Men and Women have the same rights, but it is important to observe their respective obligations.

        Both of you should have respect, fidelity, trust and assistance to one another and also tenderness and love, much love. Do not fight with one another, use your heads and your hearts to correct something wrong.

        Both of you should be aware of the great responsibility of being parents, because you should provide your children with attention, good example to follow during the rest of their lives.

        I now ask two questions to your witnesses.

                                                                                   

        1.-Are _______ ____ and ___ ______ ¿Persons you know well?

        2. - ¿ And are there any objections for them to be joined in legal marriage in Mexico?

                                                                                       

        ____ ___ ¿ do you accept _________ ______ as your beloved  and wedded wife, __ _____  ¿ do you accept _____ ____________ as your beloved and wedded husband.

                                                                                

        __and  __in the name of the law and the society and with the authority from the Solidaridad Municipal here in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mèxico, I now declare you husband and wife.

         

        You may Kiss the bride.

         

        ¡ CONGRATULATIONS!

          Hey thanks for posting the script for the ceremonies.  I also didn't realize how religious the symbolic was.

           

          I have a question about flowers!!  We are so confused about colours, we're either using a liliac or a light green as our wedding colour.  But before I choose I wanna make sure I'll be able to get flowers for my bouquets to match.  Does anyone know what kind of options for colours the bouquets are??  And if you have any other advice about what colour to choose....we're completely torn!!  This should be an easy decision, haha!!

            Thanks L&A2010 for posting the civil ceremony. There are parts that are a little harsh & seem a bit strange to me...perhaps something was lost in translation.

             

             

            “ marriage “, it says is the only legal and moral way to found a Family, to preserve mankind and avoid imperfections of the human being who are only able to obtain the perfection of the human race,

              I TOTALLY agree with you.  I had exchanged a few emails with Aurora trying to get permission to change the script but it was an absolute NO.  I ended up writing a disclaimer in our program stating that although we have to adhere to a formatted legal ceremony with the Mexican judge, there are portions of the ceremony to which we do not fully subscribe.  Luckily that part of the ceremony only takes 5 minutes max, plus with the judge's accent I think most people were a little lost when it came to the content of what she was really saying.  We went ahead and personalized the ceremony by writing our own vows and having my uncle officiate a couple of blessings.  After all the stuff we added the judge pronounced us husband and wife.  Overall the ceremony took no more than 30 minutes.

                L&A2010, well I'm glad it's not just me! The exclaimer was an excellent idea. I wasn't planning on doing programs, but maybe I will... We are writing our own vows, hopefully people will forget what came before! :)

                  Question for those of you who have already been to DT...

                   

                  What goodies are already in the room when you arrive?  I'm buying things for OOT bags right now, but dont want to waste money on things that may already be in the room anyways (sewing kits, bath products, etc).  Anyone know?

                    There is a sewing kit and vanity pack, which contains 2 Q-tips and cotton balls.  I believe everyone also gets a shampoo, shower cap, toothbrush, toothpaste, and maybe a lotion.  No one got sunscreen though, which I was counting on based off posts I had read somewhere on this site.

                    Supposedly we paid for the "preferred" rooms, so we should have gotten upgraded amenities and other perks but we didn't get anything else that everybody else didn't get even after asking about it...
