English-Speaking Civil Ceremonies

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

My fiance and I have a short list of "non-negotiable" requirements, one of which is that we have a civil ceremony performed by an english-speaking judge. Two resorts we are considering are Azul Sensatori and Paradisius Riviera. I've recently learned that Azul currently has an english-speaking judge (despite their website stating otherwise), but that they will not guarantee that this will not change (not sure how we feel about this...). Does anyone know the Paradisius policy?

 

Feel free to highjack this thread and post about other resorts. I think this is probably important to a lot people, but not discussed too often (unless I'm missing the thread!).

 

Thanks!

This is a great idea! I too feel very strongly about having an English ceremony. I am new to this process....is there anyway to find this information on the Paradisius website?

Hi Deb!

 

I did check the Paradisius website, but there's not much wedding info on it (and nothing on this topic). Hopefully someone else will chime in with the answer!

 

Happy planning!

I was under the impression that civil ceremonies had to be performed in Spanish and that someone could then translate them... could be wrong.

I too thought they had to be done in Spanish too and then translated considering that it is a legal proceeding. If you find otherwise, I would comfirm that even if he speaks english that the ceremony will be done in english. Good luck.

Thanks for the responses. I haven gotten too far on this, but I have learned that the Azul properties currently have an English-speaking Judge for civil ceremonies -- so, it's certainly not mandated that all Mexico civil ceremonies be in Spanish.

 

I'm still looking for the Paridisus policy, and open to expanding this discussion to include other resorts.

 

Thanks, again!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
