    Hey Ladies!

    Was anyone able to get a copy of the wedding script from Yahimara? The one I found online was very very legal sounding. I'm curious to know if I give the judge a script, if he'll read it (I'm just curious about the translation).

    Here is the wording I could find online:

    I, the Notary, attest the previous manifestations of the contracting parties and, to the effects of the formalization of the marriage that both have been presented, I proceed to read the Cuban Family Code, Articles 24 to 28.


    ARTICLE 24: The marriage is constituted based on equal marital rights and duties.
    ARTICLE 25: Husband and wife should live together, and maintain the corresponding loyalty, consideration, respect and help for each other.

    ARTICLE 26: Husband and wife are bound to take care of the family which they have created and to cooperate with each other in the education, formation and guidance of the children. Likewise, each must participate and cooperate in the maintenance and development of the home.

    ARTICLE 27: Husband and wife are bound to contribute to the satisfaction of the needs of the family they have created within the family. If only one person contributes to this support by working at home, and taking care of the children, the other must contribute to the expressed subsistence without relinquishing his or her duty to cooperate to such work and care.

    ARTICLE 28: Husband and wife are entitled to carry their professions or skills, and their duties to reciprocally offer cooperation and help for this purpose as well as to start studies or enhance their knowledge; in any case, they will have to organize their home life in such a way that these activities should be coordinated with the fulfillment of the obligations imposed by this code.

    Now I will question both parties if they persist in their resolution of getting married.

    Do you _______________ accept _____________ to be your lawful wedded husband?
    Do you _____________ accept _______________ to be your lawful wedded wife?

      Wow! Doesn't that just bring a tear to your eye, that has got to be the most romantic thing you've ever heard! (Note Sarcasm)

      Has anyone asked Yahimara how she would feel about providing a script of wedding vows to say to make the ceremony a little less "legal"and like you're reading about traffic tickets and a little more romantic?

        Here's a thread that Amarillis started totally asking about personalizing the ceremony but only after the legal ceremony is complete.


        She's also got her script as part of her planning threat (see bottom pg. 2)

          Wow, that is awful lisa lol I had emailed Yahimara ages ago to find out if we could use our own vows and she said it's not a problem. Not sure if this will still have to be read at some point....I hope not, it sounds like a contract!

          16 days till we leave!!

            Thanks Rhea,

            She fianally responded. Hopefully she doesn't take as long with my next email/question. Otherwise, a 5 minute conversation can last months.

                The judge/officiant has to say the legal wording to make the wedding ceremony legal and then Yahimara said that after the legel wording is complete, you can go ahead and say your own vows, do the sand ceremony, etc.

                Very legal sounding but at least you can add your own wording after!

                  Just wondering if everyone is doing a seating plan for their guests? If so how many people are you having at each table?

                  Great news as well that we can add our own vows after that very romantic and heartwarming legal ceremony! LOL

                    Hey Tilly, we are doing a seating plan for our guests - we have 80 coming so Yahimara recommended having one. She said to go with 6-8 people at each table, but I've been thinking about having 4 big tables of 20 people instead - I think it will be a nice way for our guests to get to know each and since it is tables of 4 being pushed together, I don't see why it would be a problem. Still waiting to hear back from Yahimara though!

                    And yes, we are ridiculously excited! I can finally say 'we're leaving next week'! I had better start packing!

                      That's a great idea Siobhan to push the tables together. Wow 80 people! You are going to have such an amazing week!! I am getting super excited for you too! I know what you mean about saying you can leave next week...my first thought this morning was 'yes! I only have five more Monday's of work until we leave'. Still have a tonne of stuff to do though, so trying hard to not freak out. Are you guys staying for two weeks?
