mike wanted to get married on our 4 1/2 year anniversay 6/9 (today). our witnesses were busy that day & I'd rather have friday the 13th than 69.
Aww, Morgan, I thought you were going to do it on May 20 - like the rest of the family! Friday the 13th is an awesome date, though. Wishing you a wonderful & happy day! friday.gif

We were planning on late may, but things were hectic then. This week we are much more relaxed.

That's so great, Morgan! It sounds like you have a simple, but really fun plan. Enjoy yourselves!

Stuff like this makes me reconsider and wonder if we should do the same. We'd save so much $$$...

 

Have a great day!!! :)

We are saving over $1000 by getting married before we go. There is a huge price difference in the packages at our hotel. A big reason why we are doing it this way is so we can personalize the ceremony.

smile41.gif FI just told me it would be about the same for us. I thought it was closer to $400...

Now I'm really going to revisit this option.

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread!

Have a great day this Friday - I'll be thinking of you two!!!smile159.gif

hijack away. I don't mind.

I really struggled with this decision at first. I felt like we'd be deceiving people & that if they knew they wouldn't view our wedding the same. I also thought like we'd feel weird on legal day like we had to treat it insignificant.

So at first I made the decision just based on cost, but I wasn't thrilled with the idea.

Once I told a few people they were so supportive of the idea. I started getting more comfortable about it & now I've just embraced legal day as something great. I really am excited to have two weddings- one day that we focus totally on each other & one day that we celebrate with family and friends.

Also, now that I have put together our ceremony script I am so happy we are getting to personalize it. I love our script. I just read it for fun now. I want to take lines from it & put them in our photobook next to the pictures.

After I get back from mexico I'll give my honest review of if I think it was the right choice. But, from what everyone on the forum has said, it sounds like it doesn't take away from the wedding day at all. Plus with a saturday wedding our marriage certificate would have had friday's date on it anyway. After seeing the hassles Michelle08 just posted about her legal paperwork from mexico it really does make legal day more appealing.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
