Ana's Dreams Los Cabos Review! *pics*

Recommended Posts

Hey Ana

 

Quick question, I am a little confused about the whole marriage prepartion in the catholic church. They had told me it was only symbolic and that I would still have to be married through the court but our deacon here in the states is telling us that we have to purchase a marriage license in Mexico and the priest would then marry us. So my question is did you get a marriage license in Mexico or where your from?

 

Please help

I really like your reception layout! Were the lanterns hanging above the reception site included or an additional charge? If additional charge, do you mind my asking the cost and if you rented them direct through Dreams?

Also, we plan to rent the iPod dock & speakers but were curious if you rented a dance floor? I really would prefer not to spend the money but also want to make sure folks are comfy dancing in the space provided. Was this an issue for your party?

Again...thank you SO much! :-)
Thank you :) to answer your questions: yes the lanterns were extra but I can't remember the exact cost. I asked the WC (Yesica) for them and she had it set up. If you were interested in having them I would email her and ask for the cost.

We didn't rent any specific dancing space, the area in the middle of the tables is where we did our dancing (under the lanterns) and it was fine. If you have the reception at Oceana or even Cascade that's not an issue. I could see that you might need it it you were having the reception on the beach maybe.

Ok, so when you get married in the US or Canada, the priests are allowed to legally marry you. In Mexico there are 2 different ceremonies..legal and religious. The legal ceremony requires you to be there 3 days prior to your day, get blood taken and then have an officiant perform the ceremony. You then have to go to the Church and have your religious ceremony. The Church ceremony is legal in the eyes of the Church only. So if you are Catholic your marriage is recognized by the Church but not the state...does that make sense. If you want to have the legal and Church ceremony in Mexico you have to have both of the above.

What we did...because we didn't want to deal with the legalities of Mexico, and didn't want to have our blood taken there...was that we went to City Hall 2 days before our wedding, here in Toronto, and had our civil ceremony. That way our marriage license and everything was already validated and legally we were husband and wife. Then we went to Cabo and had our Church wedding there.

If you are thinking to have your wedding at the Church though, make sure that you speak to the Priest there to make sure he has the date available, and then you need to go to your parish priest and let him know that you intend to have the Church ceremony in another country and diocee. We still had to do our Pre-marriage Prep Course at the Church and all of that stuff. Our home church and priest had to sign off on the paperwork and then send it to the Cabo Parish.
