Who performed your symbolic ceremony?

Recommended Posts

For those of you who legally married in the states before or after your wedding, who did you have marry you? I'm looking for a good officiant, but having little luck with research. Any recommendations or warnings? Thanks!

All the resorts have someone to perform the ceremonies, but besides that, there really arent many options. The only name I have seen around (and this has been asked many times before) is Petra Maurus.

We were married by a minister - Jorge Pinto. Our hotel arranged it, but he was fantastic!

My mom is religious and she 's been the foundation of my faith, so I'm going to have her perform our ceremony. I think it's more meaningful than a stranger.

I was thinking of using my mom as well, for the same reasons. I just didn't know if we could all keep it together and not sniffle and sob through the whole thing. I'd love to find someone else who I trusted, but maybe my expectations are too high?

I had one of my close friends to do it. I wasn't keen on the idea at first, but thought about it a lot and changed my mind. It felt so special to have someone close marry us instead of a stranger. If you're worried your mom would cry, just give her your script well ahead of time so she can practice. Because I wrote our ceremony script and had read it a million times, I actually did not cry that much (I thought I would be bawling).

My grandfather is performing our ceremony. I agree with the other posts - its special to have someone you know and love do it. If for some reason he can't, we have a back-up - the guy who introduced us. Either way, it will be great!

You ladies are speaking of the Destination Wedding right? Who's doing your legal wedding? Here in Massachusetts they have a thing where someone can get a one day Certificate of Solemnization to perform a legal marriage. We're having my FI's brother perform ours.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
