Carrie, Aurora emailed me that you cannot change the original ceremony (legal) but you can add to it. And as far as room upgrades..i have read from many many brides that when they get there they do get upgraded. In my past experiences in traveling we have also gotten upgraded for either free or for less then it wouldve been if booked beforehand. So , we always wait until we get there to do any upgrades or room changes. Hope this helps! This is the copy of the legal ceremony that was sent to me.
