    Hello,

    I was just wondering if anyone ever brought your own minister/priest from home or if everyone just used the justice of the peace that the resorts provide?

      I'm planning to bring my own minister. She happens to be one of my friends who was coming to the wedding anyway so I told her that if she comes and does the wedding I'll pay for her airfare as a token of appreciation even though it's only going to be a symbolic ceremony.

        I am having my brother preform our ceremony. I feel it will be much more meaningful that some person I do not know. (he is not a minister- but will get ordained)

          I do know a couple that paid the way for their priest from home to perform their Mexican wedding ceremony. It helps that he's a fan of warm weather and a friend of the family so he was happy for the break from Wisconsin winter with good friends!

            Our friend Chris will be doing our ceremony. There is no need for him to be ordained or anything since it's not legal in Mexico. But it will be very meaningful and I know he'll take the job seriously. He was planning on going to the wedding anyway, so we don't need to pay his way. It's perfect! Better than a complete stranger who got a certificate off the internet which anyone can do.
