      It says 5 days on the website, but I think you can do less. I believe the legal requirements are 3 full weekdays. I would ask them about the requirements. I feel like they told me less than 5 days.

      We are doing the renewal of vows. it's $1000 less & we wanted to be able to personalize our ceremony. If you do the legal ceromony it is performed in spanish by a judge & they have to say a certain script. By doing a symbolic ceremony we are able to have the ceremony we want. I am also happy to save the money & hassle. I don't want to spend time in Mexico with legal stuff. We are going up to the courthouse next week to sign the paperwork. Both moms were happy with the decision.

      I'll do a review when we get back. I've heard good things about them & they have been great to work with so far. Also, prices are great. If you have 6 people it's only $45 each.

                    symbolic. that is why I was able to get it on the books sooner. I still get worried we are not really confirmed. There was never any official email. Just an email saying, "OK, we wrote you down." I don't know what I expect.

                    I don't know when I pay either. maybe I should email her again. I try not to email too much.

                    I was pretty persistant to get on the books in July when I did. I just wanted that set ASAP.

                      Woo Hoo!

                      Getting the date confirmed is definitly the hardest part.

                      I promise to give you all the details I can so the rest of the planning will be much simpler.
