    symbolic ceremony question

    Hello!
    We are planning to officially get married in US so we don't have to deal with all the paperwork etc.
    Having said that: if all we are doing is just a symbolic ceremony - do we still need to get any permission from the aruba officials?
    Do we need an officiant at all?
    Can just a member of our wedding "marry us"?

    if you legally marry at home

    the ceremony in aruba is strictly symbolic

    no permission needed

    anybody you want can perform the ceremony

    Thanks Christene! I can't wait! Hope to find a place for a dinner reception on the beach for 70 people soon - let me know if you can think of any!
