PV Catholic Wedding - in English???

Recommended Posts

Hola everybody,

 

I apologize if this is posted elsewhere, but I've done quite a bit of searching (on worktime, I might add) and just get a few bits of info here and there. We are in Michigan and are planning an intimate Catholic wedding in Mexico early 2010. I was looking at RM and am now researching PV. However, I seem to have more trouble getting a straight answer from PV WC's.

 

Do any of the PV Catholic churches conduct the wedding ceremony in English?

The one WC who's replied so far says they dont' "think" any of the churches (Guadalupe, La Paz, etc.) would.

 

We both speak a little Spanish but I'm not sure if it's enough to carry us through a wedding. :o) I'd be happy to brush up before our trip (study, attend Spanish mass here in MI), but still......

 

I'd really appreciate your help and advice. <Sigh> a destination wedding is only "stress-free" if you're not Catholic, it seems! sad.gif

 

Muchas gracias!

I'm having a Catholic ceremony in PV. They only have one ceremony a day in English at the Church downtown (I don't know the Church name though, I apologize!). Anyway, my WC is doing everything - if you need a WC she is great - her website is The Dazzling Details and her name is Kristin

We are getting married at Maria Reina de la Paz in PV and when we went too speak with the father, he told us that the Mass can be in English or Spanish.

 

We are having it in Spanish, though.

 

Let me know if you need the contact info.

Hola jmiranda,

 

Yes, could you please provide me with the contact information for La Paz? I think I saw it posted somewhere here, but I can't seem to find it now. I did read that the priest there does definitely speak English and is a bit more flexible.

I can understand how you are confused! I am scheduled to be getting married at Our Lady of the Guadalupe on June 6th at noon. However, I was told that only the 10 am mass was English- but my fiance and I are going to PV (yeah) this weekend and we will be talking to the priest to see if he would be willing to do a bilingual mass since my family speaks no Spanish. Noon is already too early for me! I can't imagine a 10 am service! But, I will let you know what I find out from them when we get back.

    • 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?
