I don't want my wedding officiated by some fascist
« on: May 25, 2018, 08:10:24 PM »
I don't know man, but it's just not sitting with me very cool.  Me and my special lady friend are tying the knot in the Bahamas and I don't know the cat who's doing the ceremony.  Apparently he's some suit from the local square community and I know I'm gonna wanna yell "You're fucking this up!"  Or maybe I should just say fuck it and wear some earbuds and zone out and just say far out man when it's my turn to talk so I can get to the bar quicker.  A lot of ins a lot of outs, a lot of strands in this duders head right now because its only 3 months away.  Aww, fuck it.

I know nothing of Barbados law, but is there any way you can find someone else who's not too square?

It ain't looking too pretty, dudes. From what I'm seeing here it has to either be a member of the clergy in Barbados or one of their magistrates.
Best thing to do would be to contact a professional wedding planner or organizer down there and find out if we Dudes are good to go. Otherwise you might get stuck with something you don't want.

Apologies for the broken link. It won't let post an external link.

I've sent an email to the Ministry of Home Affairs regarding the requirements to become a temporary marriage officer.

From the office of the Ministry of Home Affairs, Ms Estherphyne Holder sent me the information.

I am not a lawyer. I have legal training, and as such I cannot and will not answer questions regarding law. I face a higher degree of being sanctioned than you do. Any questions should be directed to someone at the MHA in Barbados. I can upload the file if needed.

Quote
The Minister applying for Temporary Marriage Licence Status must already be authorized where he/she resides to solemnize marriages.

If the Marriage Officer is affiliated to a church which also has branches in Barbados, it would be courteous of him or her to inform the Head of that Denomination in Barbados, of his/her intention to solemnize a marriage on this island.

A Form A application  must be collected from the Registration Department, completed and submitted to this Ministry (see relevant addresses below) along with the following:-


1.    2 passport size pictures. 
2.    The original or certified copy of Ordination Certificate.
3.     The original or certified copy of the Church’s Registration     Document.

4.    Correspondence from the Church’s Head/or Chairman/Secretary of     the Board of Trustees, endorsing Minister’s Application and     confirming his/her authority to solemnise Marriage.     

5.    A letter from the applicant that indicates his/her willingness to solemnise the Marriage. This correspondence should also include the names of the couple, and the date, time, and location of the wedding ceremony (once approval is granted for temporary marriage licence status, a copy of this letter should be given to the couple for presentation at this office, when applying for their marriage licence).

Thanks for doing the leg work Masked Dude, that was very righteous of you and much appreciated.  It sounds pretty much in line with what my travel agent told me a couple of days ago, I think it's gonna really muddy the waters if i try and have a Dudeist ceremony and/or ordained Dudeist officiate it.  So it looks like the local square community fucking wins again, but hey man, I really do appreciate you looking into if for me. 

And BikerDude, as always, you are a deep well of sage advice. That's what she wants, so....yeah...next frame.

It's her day Dude.
Most guys would gladly get married by the bartender while checking the sports scores.
If she wants to float in on a raft made of rose pedals circled by a cloud of butterflies as all the native sing here comes the bride, give it to her.
There are some battles that are not worth dying for. Some things you just can't change.
Drink heavily.

My daughter is getting married and she and my wife have been a couple of cackling hens for months now.
My daughter started getting bummed that he fiance wasn't more involved in everything.
She'd ask him about everything. You know the "do you like the blue table cloths or the ones with the print".
That sort of nonsense. I had to step into the breech and sober up my wife.
"I know that this is very very important to you 2 and every singe detail matters, but he's a guy. He honestly doesn't have an opinion. He doesn't care. And that doesn't mean he doesn't care about getting married."
So basically Dude.
What is that like?
I mean giving a shit.
My advice. Insist on an open bar.
That would be my only input into the proceedings. Personally.
