Ceremony Translation

Recommended Posts

We did the legal ceremony in Cabo, the judge officiated & Mariana, the WC at Dreams, interpreted. We liked the fact that we were getting married in Mexico and the ceremony was in Spanish. I'm so glad we decided to do the legal ceremony- I know had we done a symbolic ceremony it just wouldn't have seemed as "real" to me. Just my personal opinion- I'm sure the symbolic ceremonies all the other brides have had were just as "real" to them...I'm just anal like that lol.

We could have inserted our own vows, but Jeff didn't want to- so we just added in the sand ceremony & my dad & bother sang a song right before we exchanged rings. It was really nice...

If you are interested, my entire ceremony is up on YouTube...

A friend of mine had a great idea. She got married in Cabo and had her brother translate (she got a copy of the ceremony ahead of time, he doesn't speak Spanish). It turned out to be very special because in the end.. it was her brother who said "I now pronounce you man and wife".. simply because he was translating.

That sounds wonderful! Originally I was thinking of having my uncle marry us (hes a lawyer) but my FI didn't think it would feel real. I like this idea because then it will be legal and real as well as special.

Thanks again,

Jessica

Love this idea, we're trying to figure out who we want to "marry" us since we're getting legally married at home, but this allows for a special touch to the ceremony.

Great idea.

Yes, according to my WC, anyone can translate. Since I'm only having my two sisters as maids of honor, we decided to have Brendan's two sisters translate so they too could be involved in the wedding. They'll take turns reading which I think is going to be really nice.

I think some do speak english (not sure though). It has something to do with it being the language of that country and that's how they do it there and if is not done that way then it's not legal.

Really? My FI was not very happy with the ceremony being in a different language. I don't know how I feel about getting legally married prior to our ceremony. I think its special for our family and friends to see us get legally married. Hmmmm.. I'll have to think about this one.

    • 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?
