Do the 'legal' part (courthouse marriage) in Canada
Posted 14 May 2008 - 11:40 PM
I'm in Vancouver and have spent the last couple of hours on the BC vital statistics website but it's all geared to 'regular' weddings where you're married at a venue. Does anyone have any information on getting married at the courthouse?
Thanks in advance!

Some info is available here BC Vital Statistics Agency - How to Get Married in BC
Here's a link to the marriage commissioner stuff for BC (it's also in the site on the above link):
Hope that helps,

We had our legal ceremony with the marriage commissioner the day before we left for Mexico. It was just Ed and I and my parents - we didn't do a ring exchange or anything at all, just the legal part and signed the paper work and that was it!
Heather started a thread about this the other day - I posted there too...I'll see if I can find it...

The thing is, I don't want it to be at a place where we choose - because then it will start to turn into another ceremony here. Did anyone get it done at a courthouse, etc? Something completely unrelated to you so that it had no meaning whatsoever?

For us, it was just paperwork - that's all!

With that being said, it didn't take away from our "real" wedding at all! I mean- AT ALL! We both still got teary eyed and totally sucked up in the moment. I wouldn't worry about the pre-ceremony taking away from the wedding ceremony. It still magical even though you know you were previously married. I was SO nervous before the wedding ceremony and I have no idea why. I was already married at that point, but it sure didn't feel like it. LOL

so what did you do about your passport since your relationship status would have changed? When you went through custom, etc at the airport, did they give you grief about that?
