    Hey everyone,

    My Fiance and I are planning on getting married in Vieques (puerto Rico) in March next year and we are having problems finding a minister or anyone really who could perfom the ceremony which lead us to thinking about getting a friend of ours to get ordained and do it. Does anybody know the process our friend would have to go through and whether the marriage would be legal? Any information anybody has on the topic would be really helpful....also if anybody knows of any officiants on the island of Vieques that would be helpful also. Thanks in advance for any help

      i found this site Universal Life Church Monastery | Become an Ordained Minister | Online Church | Online Ordination | ULC | A Universal Church
      i was thinking of the same thing since i cant find a past or to marry us, but i just cant find anyone that would take the act of marrying us seriously, everytime i tell one of our friends they think im kidding.

        Just be careful and ask your WC because I think if you get married abroad you have to use their minsters. I would double check with your hotel to see if you can use someone and it still be a legal ceremony.

          I had checked before and I know that being ordained doesn't mean you can marry anywhere. So check the site it has different rules for diff states and countries.

            Thanks guys,

            That was what i was worried about...i had a feeling there might be restrictions on where they could legally perform the ceremony. I have had trouble finding out for certain because we are getting married in PR and its not listed as a state on any of the sites i have found so still unsure on how to find out for certain

            As for checking with the hotel/WC we are TRYING to plan by ourselves for budget reasons, and will be having the ceremony on a beach so no hotel involved :S I know im crazy attempting such a huge task with such little knowledge but this site has been a lot of help so far :)

            I am trying to find someone on the island itself to use...but its such a small island there aren't many and all the ones we have tried are no longer there. Will keep trying though :)
