    For those girls that are not having a legal wedding at your destination and plan to get legally married either back home or somewhere else, do you plan to do it before or after your symbolic wedding? I want to get legally married and married by the catholic church at home but I can't decide if I should do it before or after. Is anyone else getting married by the church and legally at home?

      We're actually doing it before/during. We're going to get all the paperwork before hand. But our friend who is marrying us will just sign it on the day. However if we were having someone else who was Mexico-based do it I think we would definitely do is before the ceremony.

        We're going to get legally married on our honeymoon in Hawaii. Because our "real" ceremony in Mexico can't be legal (in our case, at Las Caletas) we chose just to do it that way. Before we came up with that idea though, we were going to just do it legally at the courthouse before we left, or in Puerto Vallarta before the ceremony.

              Hahaha! This is my FI's reasoning for having a legal ceremony here before the DW....except he wants to get married NOW! Oh lord :)
              How soon before the DW did/is everyone doing a civil ceremony?

                We're doing a civil ceremony at the court house before we leave for Cabo. We actually have to travel to the next county, because our county doesn't do civil ceremonies apparently. Good thing I figured that one out...running out of time swiftly.

                    Jen, are we marrying the same man!!! Mine wanted to get married last week when he hurt his shoulder so that he could go to the doctors. If he really really wanted to do it now for the insurance I would and we just wouldn't tell anyone, but I want to wait until about a week before.
