Spanish vs. English Ceremony


Recommended Posts

I would like to get married in Mexico (Playa Del Carmen) but my fiance is apprehensive about the Spanish to English translation. He'd prefer to just have it in English. From what I've read it has to be in Spanish if we want the legal ceremony.

 

Has anyone faced a similar dilemma? If so - how did you cope?

 

Any advice?

We are signing our legal paperwork in the US a few days before we leave for our wedding. It will only be a symbolic ceremony for us, but it will still be done in Spanich with an English translation from our WC or a guest whom we pick.

 

We could do it all in English, but decided it would be nice to have it more authentic to the area that we are marrying, so we decided to stick with the Spanish ceremony.

 

We are doing a Hand Ceremony and some readings (maybe) and those will be read in English only by a few guests that we ask to take part.

If you want a legal ceremony, it has to be in Spanish (unless I guess you get an English-speaking judge, but not likely). We actually enjoyed the Spanish/English ceremony and felt that it contributed to the charm and atmosphere of getting married in Mexico :)

We are doing the exact same thing :)

At my sister's (which was symbolic) wedding, the ceremony was spanish then translated into english. The spanish ceremony was very pretty, even if I was the only one who understood. It was cute because they answered their vows in spanish...but hesitantly...since they weren't sure what they were agreeing to. Si?
