    We are having a legal ceremony at the Barcelo Beach and have been told that our WC will translate as the minister? will be speaking in Spanish. We have a friend that speaks spanish and it would be SO much nicer if he was able to translate. Has anyone ever had anyone else but the WC translate the service.
    Thanks

      We were married on the Colonial Beach in Feb 2009 we ended up using the Best Man to translate! Our Judge would speak in Spanish then our WC held the English version for the Best Man to read. It was actually funny and made it more personal. When we watch the wedding DVD now we can still get a laugh at the Best Man trying to say some of the words! ha-ha

        I am getting married at the Barcelo too; I'll have to ask about someone from the wedding party "translate" that is a great idea to make it more personal!

            I am not certain about all weddings but our Judge spoke Spanish, that's why we needed the english translation. But maybe it has changed in the past year

                when i talked to my WC she told me that all legal ceremonies in Mexico are done in their first language Spanish and that we would require an English translator if we wanted to understand it (our WC will be the one interpreting the ceremony) I would double check to make sure if its legal ceremonyl or a symbolic ceremony

                  I have heard back from Gabriella and YES, we can have our own translator. The wedding will be done in Spanish, but the "minister" will have an English written version with him so the person translating does not even need to know Spanish.
