@deecol I thought I was asking such a trivial thing so I'm glad that you also think it's a good question. I just think it would look weird if only some of the bridal entourage signed. I could also get two bridesmaids two sign as my witness then have Der's best man his sister to sign but then I think that could look weird too having one person who's not for the bridal party do it

@Wafflesmom what about close family? Maybe your sister & mom on your side and Der's closest fam signing on his side?

@Wafflesmom I agree - I don't know how it all works...  I agree that it would probably look weird having different people than in the bridal party come up to sign, but I don't know if there are really any other options.

@Wafflesmom I think your close family would be great! If they are sitting in the front row, I don't think it would be weird for them to get up to sign. I've seen ceremonies where parents or siblings get up to do different things.

Thanks for all your input @perianjay, @Danielle1 and @deecol

You're all right, maybe close family would be best. We're not having our parent's names on our wedding certificate since it will cost us so much more for original birth certificates with an apostille so maybe having our parents as witnesses would be perfect! What do you think @deecol? Immediate family would be at the front row anyways so it shouldn't be too bad right?

Ok second question, my dad died 29 years ago so who should I ask ask my secondary witness, my brother or my uncle who has been a father figure to me?

I think immediate family is a great idea. Unfortunately the Canadians won't arrive 4 business days before, well they technically do but they won't count the day they land. So all my witnesses will have to be Colin's side, some are going for 2 weeks land a couple days before us, some for 10 days and will land the day after us.

I think you should go with your gut on choosing your brother or uncle, it's hard to say because I don't know your relationships like you do. Either way it will be beautiful and a nice touch to have them as your witnesses.

Thanks for your input @deecol! You're right about trusting my gut when picking between my uncle and brother. Both mean the world to me and I'm actually going to dance with both of them in lieu of the father/daughter dance. It will be a dance with the men in my life, my uncle, brother nephew and Derrick's dad

And I just checked my legal ceremony forms and witnesses just have to be there 3 business days before the ceremony, not 4 (that's only for Cozumel weddings). Are your Canadian family members there 3 business days before?

Aww that will be such a nice moment for you and the men in your life :) they are lucky guys!

My Canadian witnesses will be there 3 days before. The previous wedding planning manager from Gbp said 4 but I'm going to double check. If it's 3 that would work out perfectly!

@deecol this is what my legal ceremony information sheet states:

Witnesses: Legal Wedding Ceremonies four witnesses are required.
If the wedding couple provides their own witnesses the following is needed; If witnesses are not available, Palace Resorts will provide them at no additional cost.
Witnesses must be at least 18 years of age at the time of the ceremony.
Witnesses must arrive three (3) business days Monday – Friday (four (4) if going to Cozumel) prior to ceremony.

I'm going to confirm, I can't find it on my paper work. The previous wedding manager said 4 but I found online that the requirement in the Riviera Maya is 3 days for witnesses. This manager is more on the ball than the previous one so we'll see. Thanks for bringing this up!!!
