I wanted to share something with all of you. I was starting to stress out about our ceremony script and exactly what would be said on our wedding day. Although we are having a legal wedding in Mexico, with a judge, we decided to hire a minister as well who would hopefully guide us and make suggestions for this part.
Our hotel (Le Reve) put us in touch with Enrique Monroy who is an ordained minister with experience in religious as well as non-denominational ceremonies. While we haven't met him, we are SO excited to be working with him. Here's why: the entire ceremony script, except for a reading (sonnet by Pablo Neruda) that we asked him to add, will be a complete surprise! He gave us the general outline but then said the following: "We prefer not to give you the actual words of the ceremony, to maintain the special glow of surprise & unknown, we always prefer that the bride & groom listen to the words right at the moment they are getting married, and not before. Trust me, you will not regret it."
I get goosebumps just thinking how special this will be. I know this isn't for everyone, especially since your wedding day is such an important day, but me and my fiance are SO excited about and energized by this! His words say it all - it will maintain the special glow of surprise and unknown.
I just wanted to throw it out there that is IS possible to have a great ceremony without stressing over every word of the script. Trust me, I spent hours in the ceremony script thread, and there are some amazing ones out there, but it doesn't have to be difficult. Think about it!! I will post a review after the wedding on how it actually went - I hope it's as special as we are expecting.
