I'd like to see the script for the legal ceremony at Dreams Cancun too. It's still 9 months until our wedding, and I know the WCs there are super busy, so I'm trying not to email them to often with questions at this early point in time, but would love if a more recent bride could post the script if they have it.

 

I did see another post on here where a recent bride did a legal ceremony and she was able to add in the script she wanted around what the judge MUST include to make it legal. Not sure if everyone can do that...she said she emailed her version to her WC to submit to the judge for approval, and her WC told her she "got lucky" that they approved it. I saved it, so I'll see if I can post it here for you!

Here is a copy of a post I saw on the boards yesterday from a bride that provided her ceremony script, and inserted in the parts that the judge MUST say to make it legal. The required parts are in red. Not sure that this is always ok'd...the bride posted that she submitted this script to her WC for approval by the judge, and her WC told her she "got lucky" that it was accepted. She was able to replace the "Ocampo's Letter" part of the script..which I'm not sure what this part says.

READING TO REPLACE OCAMPOâ€S LETTER

Officiant: “It was once said that falling in love is like being the first to discover the most beautiful thing in the world, to find something so lovely that no-one else had even noticed. Love often starts in little ways. It comes quietly with a smile, a glance or a touch but you know itâ€s there because suddenly youâ€re not alone.

Love means finally finding a place in this world that shelters you and is your very own, where you feel you have been forever and where you will live, grow and learn.

The beautiful thing about love is that its an experience we share with all people throughout the world, and yet to everyone who falls in love it is the most unique and precious thing in the world.â€

1. Are Groom and Bride persons you know well?

“ From this day forward I promise you these things….

I will laugh with you in times of joy…

And comfort you in times of sorrow…

I will share in your dreams…

And always support and encourage you…

I promise to love you in good times and bad…

I will help you when you need it…

And step aside when you donâ€t…

You are my best friend…

And I will love and respect you always…â€

 

Officiant: “Bride do you accept Groom as your beloved and wedded husband?â€

Bride responds: “Si Acceptoâ€Officiant: Bride please repeat after me:

“ I do not need you, I choose you…

I choose you today in witness of all the people who love us…

I choose you tomorrow in the privacy of our hearts…

I choose you in strength and weakness…

I choose you in health and sickness…

I choose you in joy and sorrow…

I will choose you, over all others…

Every day, for all the days of my life.â€

 

EXCHANGE OF RINGS

Officiant: “Today, you join yourselves together for life, as friends and lovers,

husband and wife. The rings you are about to exchange are the symbol of never ending love and commitment each of you feel deep within your soul.

“These are the hands of your best friend…

That are holding yours on our wedding day…

As I place this ring on your finger…

May it always remind you of my never ending love…

And may it always remind me of the precious treasure I have in you…

Wear this ring with joy…

For your love has made me complete.

If you want to read the thread about this topic where I saw that post, do a search for "How much can you personalise a legal ceremony". (I realize that personalize is mispelled, but that is how the original poster of that thread spelled it, so you'll be able to find it easier if you spell it the way they did). Oh, and my mistake, the gal that posted her whole ceremony that I posted above got married at Dreams Tulum, but should be similar to what Dreams Cancun may require for a legal ceremony.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
