    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!

      We did it by ourselves, we didn't want to be anyone and just wanted to be us.

        We are probably just going to have our MOH and BM, but we still have to decide where we are going to do it. We want to do it the day before we leave, so it would be a 2 hr drive for my MOH just to turn around and go back to leave, or do it in the city when we get the the day before leaving, and the BM can make sure to be there by a certain time.

        A funny little note *my MOH really wants to be there, as I will be getting our marriage certificate through her and she will sign it then, and then she wants to sign it as the witness too! She is so funny, although her first signature on it won't appear on it after the wedding, as the person performing the ceremony gets that part. Still, we will know that she got to sign it twice. LOL

          It was such a great time though. I totally recommended it. Find a drive thru chapel and have fun!
          That is soooo awesome! If we weren't so strapped for cash for our 'real deal' in Tulum I would totally do this! So jealous! And your cab driver as a witness?! How classic is that?! Lucky you!
