Just a few questions:
I am doing a symbolic ceremony, do I need to bring my marriage license with me for this?My fiance and I are going to a JP within the next month, so I am not sure if I will receive it in time.
Also, what type of decorations does the resort provide for the reception? It is my understanding I have to bring most of the decorations. Are chair sashes provided, or table runners? I am trying to make a list. What about the paper lanterns I see in a lot of photos, do brides bring those?
I am less than 4 months out and I suppose I have some decsions to make, I wonder if it's a bad thing I am not stressing over any of this!
I am getting married May 18, 2010 and try to be relaxed too! But to answer your questions you do need proof you are married for the symbolic ceremony. Getting married before you go with the JP should give you some kind of paper/certificate even if the official one isn't there yet. You pretty much have to bring down any decorations you want. They do white table cloths, chair covers, etc but bring sashes if in your wedding color if you want them or table runners etc. I bought paper lanterns at Michaels for our reception so you'd have to bring those too. Let me know if you have any questions because I was they May 2009 for a vacation and site visit and got to see things and ask questions. I met Maritee and was really looking forward to working with her but I'm sure Claudia will be just as good! Congrats!
