Officiant

Recommended Posts

Legally, we are getting married at the San Francisco court house, and we would like to be married symbolically by a family member...can we do this in Cabo? We are currently thinking about Melia Cabo Real.

We are doing the same, one of our best friends will be conducting the ceremony in Cabo. My understanding is that because the wedding isn't legal, anyone can stand up and say a few words.

 

We aren't even asking our friend to get the certification online.

 

Hope that helps!

I also did a symbolic ceremony in Cabo, I did use an experienced officiant. Rev Marco Arechiga. He was absolutely fabulous and nearly ever guest commented that it was the best wedding ceremoney that they had ever been to.

 

Also I recommend searching the cabo forum as there are many discussions on officiants, I used the search featrue at the top menu bar and typed in cabo officiant and the following came up:

We're doing the same! Getting married at the courthouse in Portland the day before we leave for Cabo and a dear friend is going to do the ceremony for us in Cabo. No certificate needed since the legal ceremony is already done!

*Heather* form the forum got married at Dreams Cabo, and I believe her brother officiated the ceremony. Double check with her to be sure, and I am sure she can give you more details!

My wedding was also symbolic and I used Marco Arechiga because I need it to get it done in both Spanish and English (my family doesn't speak any English, Brian's any Spanish) and he did great. Funny story, I was freaking out when I was walking down the aisle, almost pass out, but he save me from a nervous breakdown with a small joke at the beginning of the ceremony, I love it! People still talk of how beautiful the ceremony was. Totally recommended.

We are doing that too. We are getting married at the Courthouse in Santa Barbara CA, and having my Aunt (my favorite person in the world) Marry us. We both thought it would mean so much more to have someone we loved and trusted officiating the ceremony.

I used Marco, as well, and can't say enough how wonderful he was. I requested him because of what I've read about him on this Forum. I also, have a friend that got certified online. But, to answer your question, you'll probably be better off by getting it confirmed with your WC.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
