    I'm getting married here on 9/15.  We do that the 4pm time slot on the beach but I was originally told that it was reserved for civil ceremonies.  September is a slow season for them though, so I'm assuming that is why we are able to do our symbolic ceremony. 

     

    Hm ... that doesn't seem fair!  I'm going to see if my TA can work some magic on this.  My other thought was maybe if the slots don't fill up then we can have it changed!  That would be fine with me.  May doesn't seem like it would be a busy time for weddings down there.  That is when weddings start happening in Canada since the weather is finally warm again!

      I really hope this works out for you girl!!!..

       

      We are confirmed for 6:00 for our symbolic wedding, but now we have requested a civil ceremony.. I hope we don't lose out spot, but our families were not happy about us having to go to the courthouse to get married first.

        Oh families ... they have to have a say in everything ... I've definitely had some battles.  

         

        Yeah, I would double check your times.  You will have to find a day when the justice of the peace is available.  Trying to sort things out myself.  I'm waiting to hear back on an email I sent to ME this afternoon.  Once I get my answer on one more set of dates we are just going to go with the 1:00pm wedding and hope we can change it if the other slots don't book up.

           Ugh.. Tell me about it.. This was the one thing I'm considering giving in on. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one having battles.. But I wish we didn't have to, this is OUR day!..

           

          My TA is checking now to see what can be done.. When I was checking times and days they seemed to be totally against Civil ceremonies and would only confirm us a symbolic ceremony. So that's how we ended up with that choice..

           

          Yea, if I were you I'd book the 1:00 before someone else does, just in case.. I'm not sure how their confirmed dates work. Without telling people to put a deposit down,  how will they know if people are serious? do they just wait til that person wedding day to see if they show up?  that's one thing I really don't like about that resorts wedding process.
