We plan to do the legal thing before we go to the DR for the "big show" and I didn't really want it to be anything big or special. I don't want it to take away from the day in the fancy dress with everyone there.
Because FI's family is here, he wants them there for the legal cermony. I don't think his sister will be coming down to the Dominican b/c she can't afford it, but his parents will be there at the resort. None of my family will be there for the legal ceremony, only the symbolic one. I think my family would be a bit upset if his family was there and they couldn't be.
SO my question is... Who did you have at your legal ceremony?
I'm planning on doing the same. I think I'm gonna have my sister there at the legal ceremony then meet everyone out for dinner (just something small) We may even get tattoos afterwards!
