Help?!? Have a friend perform the ceremony?

Recommended Posts

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

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 sad.gif

 

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 :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
