Thanks! Helps a lot.

 

One more question: What does the symbolic ceremony look/sound like? Would guests be able to tell that it is not a real ceremony (if we want to get legally married here before without telling anyone)? For example, do we sign paper just like we would in a real ceremony?

Hmmm, I thought for sure I had writing a reply to this... Weird!!

 

Anyway, here it is again.

 

Thank you Khan! One last question: Do you sign papers for the symbolic ceremony? Does it look like a real ceremony?

Im also wondering how a symbolic ceremony is different from a legal one. We are doing the legal marriage before we leave to avoid the extra paperwork involved. Sounds like a wonderful wedding and you are happy with your choice to have a destination wedding!!

During the symbolic ceremony, Yahimara read out some kind of Cuban wedding agreement, but mostly it was just us saying our own vows. What she read sounded like a legal document, and in all honesty we didn't pay much attention. At one point we had to say "Yes" we agreed, but that was all really. We were given the option to sign some fake documents, but we passed on it. I think for this kind of ceremony, the thing that is most important is your own vows.

 

Unfortunately, I can't say what a Cuban legal wedding sounds like, because I don't know. Sorry.

 

Best of luck,

 

Khanh

That's good to know that there is the option to sign some "fake documents"...even though I don't think it's a big deal, my FI feels like our guests will feel kinda "cheaped out" if it is not a real wedding, just a symbolic ceremony. Since it's just our close friends and immediate family, I don't think they will really care! Saves us having to wait forever for the legal documents and having to have his divorce decree translated.

Hello Ladies!!

 

I finaly narrowed down two resorts that I'm interrested in for my 2011 wedding...Iberostar Laguna Azul and Barcelo Maya Beach in Riviera Maya. My TA sent out the submissions yesterday and I'm waiting to see the proposed contrats so I can compare both to finally take my final decision. I'm definetly more interrested by ILA and my fiance too!!!

 

I'm really excited but at the same time I'm nervous! I would love to see the wedding gazebo and couple more wedding pictures at the ILA but I know that it's not going to be possible as I'm going to book soon. Does anybody knows what kind of gazebo they are building?

I can't wait to hear about the 2010 ILA weddings...for those who are getting married in April/May, you guys must be sooooo excited...I hope we'll have (2011 brides) the chance to see some pics!!

 

Mags :)

Khanhandphil congrats on your recent wedding. I have one question, did you have to pay anything to have your photographer there with you? We have seen on other forums that some photographers have to pay 200CUC just to be there, even though they are staying at the hotel etc.

Thanks!
