Renewal of Vows vs. Legal Ceremony...help!

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if you could tell me how the wedding turned out, getting a renewal ceremony at the Riu Palace Macao next month, and worried it won't be passable as the legal ceremony

Oh it will be fine. Everyone who has done it that has posted here on BDW says it's so similar to the legal ceremony that no one will know unless you tell them. And since so many couples do the symbolic ceremonies now, resorts are much more in-tune with making sure they appear true to form, for all intents and purposes.

I was worried about this at first too, but no longer.

Now, if I can just get FH to keep his mouth shut b/c he is so excited about signing our legal paperwork he's been letting it slip that we'll be legally married before we leave for our DW. I think duct tape...bunny_4.gif

And, you can always bring your souveneir marriage certificate & sign it after the ceremony so it looks like something official is happening...just some thoughts.
Christa - Chief Investigator...........THAT IS HILLARIOUS!! I keep hearing Dragnet every time I see your picture!smile120.gif

Anyhow, I was thinking the same thing, just take a souvenier certificate and have your attendants sign it.

We are doing a Justice of the Peace wedding here, before hand as well and have only told a couple of people. Our thoughts were the same as yours in thinking we could save the extra money and spend it on something else. Plus We didn't want to be bothered with bloodwork and sending birth certificates.

    • 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?
