I was very against it at first. However, we're getting married in Mexico, and to get married legally there requires too much work (waiting 3-4 days after arrival to get married, and a blood test while in Mexico). The blood test just scared me, so I decided to just go to City Hall (I'm in Toronto) to get the paper work done. Just 2 witness that is required, and keeping it low-key as well. At the DW, we're going to arrange to have something signed so people can't tell the difference that it is just a ceremonial wedding in Mexico.
