Dear swabbett,  re: post # 1856

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  1-pray.gif    So many thanks for posting the various documents, some of which have changed from 2012, and some of which I have never even seen!  An exceptionally helpful post for me, and other future brides, I am sure.  I think the OCT Resort should have a link on its own website containing all wedding-related documents and keep it current instead of everybody having to beg for them or ask other girls for them.

RToovey,

That is one of my questions, also!  I would like to have that kind of information printed up for my guests before I fly to MX, but how can that happen if you only get most answers or most things finalized until you arrive at the resort?  I have been wondering what other destination brides do for place cards, seating charts, menu cards, etc.  Maybe when you have a DW, you cannot have these types of things simply because you do not have enough time in advance to print them up, or because a bride is "winging it?"  I am a "hands-on" type of person who wants evrything taken care of up front, I guess that makes me feel more in control of a situation.  Past brides, what have you done when it comes to printed escort cards, place cards, menu cards, seating chart, etc?

I am getting married March 26th and I have put together menus and seating charts.  Ana said they have round tables that seat 8 and 10 guests per table and you can mix and match those as needed.  I have some tables that only have 5 people at them.  She said all I will need to do is draw out how I would like the tables set up.  I have 5 found tables and then I will have a head table at the front for the bridal party.

Question for past brides, do your witnesses actually sign anything during the ceremony? I have a good friend who I would like to use as a witness, however she is also a photographer and will obviously be busy during the ceremony.

 

Thanks for the help.

I have what's probably a dumb question but here goes....do we have to take a marriage certificate/licence with us or is that all done there? I don't imagine a Canadian certificate would be recognized in Mexico but just thought I should ask...Thanks for your help ladies!

We were married at OCT in January and brought our own menu cards and programs. We did not do place cards as we didn't assign seating in the large square setup we had (rather than rounds). We also made mini maracas for guests to shake to make us kiss. And we brought and assembled welcome bags with door hangers and itineraries. We finalized our menu with Ana about a week before we left for Mexico. Here are a few photos for your reference... 400[/img][/img][/img][/img]

Thanks @lbaker!

 

What did you include on your programs? 

 

So it only took you a week to make your menus?

 

Where did you get the maracas/door hanger from?  That is a cute idea:)

@hylon29 Yes your witness will need to sign your marriage certificate

 

 

@ajhutch you do not need a marriage licence from Canada to be married in  Mexico. It's all done there.

Hey Ladies,

 

I was filling out the registration form for the marriage license and it asks for two witness for bride and two for groom. I just want to confirm if myself and husband to be need two witnesses each... I want to know if this is mandatory or optional.

 

Thanks!
