    So I have my legal day on June 27th the friday before we leave for Mexico. For you ladies that have gotten married before your DW or are getting married before your DW how does the symbolic ceremony work. do you still sign a "License" I was thinking if you don't do this people will know it is not "legit".

    I don't want people to think that they came to mexico for no reason you know.. like they got jipt

      LMAO I don't think people will think that. I am pretty sure though that even the symbolic weddings sign something. Although I have been to a TON of weddings where they don't sign anything at the actual wedding. I think you will be fine. If anyone asks about the document just tell them you signed it all earlier. I doubt anyone will catch on though.

        I'm totally thinking the same thing. I'm afraid if people find out we were legally married before we went they will wonder why they went all the way to Mexico! I'd love to hear from some who've already dealt with this...

            I'm thinking the same thing too...plus I'm horrible at keeping secrets, and even worse at lying. I'm afraid someone is going to ask us about the legal requirements to get married in Mexico and I'll be like...uhhhh...uhhh...

              I was too excited to hold it in so I'm telling everyone. No one sounds like they feel jipped. I think they are coming for the sun & the ruins tour anyway :)

                I'm having a legal ceremony two days before we go to Mexico. I told everyone that it is just the bureaucratic paperwork and that we are not recognizing the marriage until we say our vows in front of loved ones. I'm not going to wear the wedding band either until after the symbolic ceremony.

                  Hmmm...I like that. I think I will probably do that too.

                    We were going to keep it a secret. But I have a big mouth... so now pretty much everyone knows we are planning on getting married ahead of time. No one has said anything negative about it ... in fact most people who know the background thinks that it makes more sense. It in no way will change who chooses to come... nor will it change the fact that it will be our wedding.

I am glad there are more of me wondering out there!!!!
