new to these forums and looking for a bit of help!!
my Fiancee and I are planning on getting married next April (2014) in Cancun at Riu Caribe (possibly!)
i was wondering when booking your weddings how close to the actual date did you mange to get?!
my concerns are around the fact that as it is our first wedding that we will need to have 4 witnesses and that they have to be in the country for a minimum of 3 days before the wedding!!
due to the cost of everyone getting there we were only going to ask our guests to come over for 1 week (Saturday to Saturday) this means Mon-wed will count as 3 day residency period which then only leaves us will Thurs and Friday as possible wedding dates.
my fear is that if the wedding day has to moved for any unforeseen reason that we might end up with no guests!!!
i was also wondering if anyone has been married using witnesses that your wedding co ordinator has supplied for you?
i just want to know how involved they are in the ceremony etc as in i don't want our wedding photos to end up with 4 random people in them, as much as i would appreciate them helping us out!!
information overload i know, sorry about that but everything seams very daunting at the moment and wish you could speak to a wedding co ordinator before you actually forked out thousands of pounds booking your holidays etc!!
thanks for all your time and help
