    Does any one know the script they use for the legal ceremony at Dreams Cancun?

    And are you allowed to change/add your own vows?

    Any help would be appreciated girls.

    Thanks

      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.

        WELCOME
        Officiant: “On behalf of Groom and Bride it is my honor to welcome you and thank you all for travelling such great distance to be here today.
        According to the laws of this country we are gathered here to join the bonds of matrimony which is an honorable status.

        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 it’s there because suddenly you’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.”

        VOWS
        Officiant: “ I now ask two questions to your witnesses,

        Groom responds: “Si Accepto”
        Officiant:Groom please repeat after me:
        “ 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 don’t…
        You are my best friend…
        And I will love and respect you always…”

        Officiant: “Bride do you accept Groom as your beloved and wedded husband?”
        Bride responds: “Si Accepto”
        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.”

        “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.
        Groom places ring on Brides finger.

        Officiant: “Bride repeat after me…”
        “These are the hands of your best friend…
        That are holding yours on our wedding day…
        As I place this ring on your finger…

            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.

              Does anyone know what the script is if you aren't doing the legal ceremony?
