The government is so smart sometimes. hehe That is really messed up of your FI's dad. Hopefully he'll change his mind.

As for the rings and acting married- we didn't do that till our wedding day. Wasn't that hard.
To address the guilt over making people feel jipped- People travel to "DW" for vow renewals. We have people on this forum doing the same thing. Granted, I don't think the turn out is quite as big, but I'm sure the people going are going because they love the couple and want to share in celebrating the union. How's that any different than what we are all doing?
We didn't tell anyone except my parents and sister that we were married. As far as I'm concern, it's not really their business when we made it "legal." Weddings are about celebrating the joining of two people and love. Not whether or not your particular state/country will recognize that commitment. Just my two cents.

What's more special is that we decided to do it on her father's birthday, 9/26. He's passed away and she always wanted to do something special in remembrance. The four of us will go to church, get married and go out for dinner. I do plan to wear my TTD for the ceremony at the church and to dinner.
