    I am getting married at Dreams PV in May and we are having a symbolic ceremony (legal marriage will be in the U.S. when we return). Now that my wedding is 4 months away (whoa!) I have started to realize I have NO idea what the ceremony should include. Dreams will provide us with an officiant, but do they have things that they say, or are you responsible for providing them with every word you want said? I've only really been to traditional church weddings so don't really know how to kind of wing it in regard to our own program and all that. 

     

    I guess it may be nice to have a reading or something but I have no clue what I would want read. And I didn't consider us having to write our own vows, but if we don't, does the officiant have vows for us to recite?

     

    Any help would be appreciated!

      The beauty of scripting your own ceremony is that you can make it personalized to you and your groom.  The following thread should give you a good start: http://www.bestdesti...ceremony-script

       

      Like many DW resort locations, the officiant that they hire for your ceremony will typically have a script that they like to use; I would request a copy from your resort.  This will  give you the opportunity to make changes, additions or any special requests that you may want. 

       

      Happy Planning!

        I agree with Choco Taco, that is a great thread!  I have started to write my ceremony, and it has really helped me. If you are a crier, don't read the thread when you are at work!  So many beautiful scripts.
