Do you fly out your officiant with a guest?

Recommended Posts

I am flying my Rabbi down to Mexico to marry me and my FI. I am paying for all of his expenses (flight, hotel, etc). Do I invite him with a guest? I am not sure what the proper etiquette is.

 

THanks!

I would say if he wanted to bring a guest you could give him that option but I wouldn't be paying for that person. That's just me though :)

I totally agree. He should be allowed to bring a friend or something b/c he may not know very many people in your group and might want to have someone to hang out with when he not officiating your ceremony. I also agree that you don't have to pay for the guest.

yeah I agree. We were going to fly a Priest down but only pay for them. If they want to bring someone, I'd let them - just at their own expense.

y dont you have your rabbi marry you here, and just have a symbolic ceremony, noone will know the difference because you can even find a rabbi there to marry you and your guests will think that this is the actual wedding, but it saves you having to fly anyone out and deal with any other mexican legal restrictions

Thank you all so much for all of your responses--- I really appreciate them. I think I am goign to still fly him down, but not pay for a guest. He knows about ten of the guests, so it shouldn't be an issue in that way.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
