To us, our wedding in Jamaica will be our official wedding since our families will be there and we will say our vows in front of them. We actually lucked out and didn't have to pay to have our paperwork processed, and I only just now thought about getting married beforehand to move things along logistically. I just want to make sure that if we go this route we still get to enjoy all the perks of having a wedding there, not just a vow renewal, which at our resort doesn't include what the weddings do.

After that, it counts as a renewal and you have to pay whatever that fee is, and I think you have to get a new picture made.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful feedback about getting married legally at home, and then having a symbolic DW! We haven't decided which route we'll take, but I'll be sure to let you all know!
