Oh no! My WC said he will be doing the ceremony, and then I told her that we wanted to do have the ceremony in Spanish. She said that he also speaks Spanish, so now I'm not sure.

    What is his primary language? Does anyone know if it can be done in English and in Spanish? Also, I was a little worried about the music throughout the ceremony. I don't want to use the expected Ave Maria or others, and was hoping to get away with using instrumental songs. What was anyone's experience with this? Also, were you able to play regular music while the guests sat down? I read over some of the requirements and it included no pop  music, was wondering what everyone used while people found their seats..

    I know that he also speaks English and French. I believe he can incorporate both spanish and english in the ceremony. I was told that by my wedding coordinator. As far as the music goes, I have the same questions as you.

      I had a catholic ceremony at the Melia Caribe.  We used the guitar trio they played instrumental music upbeat local sounding.  They played Cannon D when I walked down the aisle.  There was no music during the ceremony.  :(

        I was told by my wedding coordinator that he does. You can have your wedding coordinator double check that for you. Make sure you let them know from the beginning that's what you want done, so there is no confusion later on.
