Just an FYI for anyone that would rather have the Cancun symbolic ceremony before getting legally married in your hometown...

 

I had noticed in in one place in the Palace Resorts Wedding materials I was given it said that for a Symbolic Ceremony it was the responsibility of the couple to get married in their hometown pre/post travel (even though in the paragraph before it says you need to bring your marriage certificate with you). I was a little uncomfortable with getting married beforehand because I kind of felt like I was deceiving my guests in Cancun since I would already be married (especially since my parents know we are planning a symbolic ceremony, but we hadn't told FI's parents). So I asked my WC if we could get married in our hometown after the Cancun wedding, & she said that was fine.

 

I would definitely clear it with your WC, but since I've cleared it with my WC, I'm going to get married legally once we get back home.[/QUO

 

 

I'm having a Catholic wedding and I was confused because I had gotten two different responses. My contract stated that in Mexico you need to be legally married before you have a Catholic wedding. One WC told me that I did and another told me that I didn't. Today I called and was told that I had to email the preist at moon palace and get special permission from him. Just to be safe thats what im going to do.

Does MP do civil (legal) ceremonies on Sundays? I thought I read that they did not, but on the websites availabilities calendar it show that Sundays are available. We are booked for May 20th (Friday) and just realized that that is the first birthday of the best man's daughter. We normally make a big deal of the kids' birthdays so if we can move to the Sunday before that would take some stress away. I emailed my MC but no answer yet, and we need to no ASAP, as my STDs are ready to go to print. HELP!!!

No they do not do civil ceremonies on sundays, they only do symbolic ceremonies if the officiant is available.. as per my TA and Miami WC. I am having a symbolic ceremony at moon palace 5/15/11.

From what I read you have to get legally married first and then have the Catholic wedding.  Also, you might want to check with your home town priest first.  You might have to have permission from you parish too.  We were going to do a Catholic wedding but the date we picked you couldn't have a Catholic wedding.  We were going to have to do the pre cana classes and get permission from his priest for them too.

I am planning on asking Palace Resorts to change my WC.  I am within my 90 days and it took her over a month to respond to an email and only did so after I emailed weddings@palaceresorts.com.  Then the email referred to Tuesday Nov. 2nd instead of my actually wedding day Saturday October 2nd.  She also said she had already reserved my reception and cocktail hour locations (for the wrong day) even though I never requested any locations.  I didn't even know what my options were. 

 

Have any other brides on here requested a new WC?  If so what was your experience with them changing it?  Mine has been horrible!.

What is the name of your WC...just so the rest of us know who we DO NOT want!

 

I'm sorry to hear about your experience so far.  I think it would be very reasonable of you to request a new WC...are they giving you problems?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
