Doing your own vows / sand ceremony in English??

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!

 

I understand that the ceremony in the DR must be said in spanish in order for it to be legal. that's fine, I can live with that - BUT I want to do our own vows in English, and do a sand ceremony in English too. Has anyone else done this? How did it turn out? I'm worried about the duplication between the vows, and whether it will look stupid to say two sets of them... I'm also wondering who to get to do the sand ceremony in english, as the officiator at my resort only speaks spanish (the wedding coordinator apparently translates the ceremony simultaneously). Does any one have any experience with this? Ideas and/or insight would be greatly appreciated!!

 

Thanks,

Angela :)

That is such a great idea! I hadn't even thought of it, thanks :) It might also be a nice way to involve my future mother in law in the ceremony (she REALLY wants to be)

Well I personally think I would be fine to do both, that's our plan. We checked with our hotel and they said that there would be time for us to say our own vows around the ring exchange. I don't think any of our guests even speak spanish so they wouldn't know if we are repeating anything the minister said. Go for it!

I guess I hadn't even thought of having it translated at the ceremony. I am asking for a copy of it that I will get translated just for me, but I think our own personal vows are what mean more to me.

Please meeee too, any information on how you've been informed it will take place will definetly be a huge help!!!! Fortunetly for me we have some spanish speaking guests and have already asked them if they would be able to translate for us if infact the ceremony was performed in spanish...

    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
