    Kara,
    Hi, I am getting married at the Riu Yucatan in Nov. could you update me on any info you have for your wedding so far. I have not got anything from the hotel except the date and time. Where in the resort are you getting married? How many people are coming to your wedding? There seems to be very few of us at the Yucatan.
    Thanks,
    Tamasin

      Hey All-

      Katrina I am curious about the switch to a religous ceremony... We are having a quick legan ceremony before we go and picked the symbolic ceremony- but we want to say vows as well- did you end up going with the religious after all? And did it cost more?
      thanks!!

        we went with the religious ceremony and supplied our own vows. if you do the civil or the symbolic you cannot change the vows. and no it didn't cost anymore.

            Hi Katrina, thanks for all of your info!
            I'm in the same boat you were in terms of the ceremony: We will be legally married before we get to Mexico but we want our guests to believe that the Riu ceremony is the real thing. We also don't want it to be too religious, we do want it in English, and we don't want to get blood tests/legal paperwork in Mexico. With your religious wedding: was it very religious? In english? Did you have to get bloodwork?
            How about the option of a "vow renewal" wedding? Did you look into this?

            Thanks :-)

              it's called a "religious" ceremony, but that's very misleading. you can supply your own vows (in english) and the minister will read them. no one has any idea that ours wasn't legal and we just used the vows from las caletas, which are really beautiful. i don't recommend the vow renewal wedding as you can't change the vows and it's very obvious that it's just a recommitment ceremony, not a wedding. hope that helps..

                I googled wedding vows at Las Caletas and couldn't find anything.... is there a link to the vows here on the forum?
                Also, did you have to do the blood test for the religious ceremony? I'd be a big bruise in a wedding dress, haha

                Thanks :-)
