Since the Mexico one is just symbolic...huh.gif We will always refer to the Mexico one as our true anniversary....but am I not thinkin of something else here!? hahahahaha
We had a Catholic ceremony in Mexico on May 10 and then we did our legal ceremony after we returned to the States on June 2 (DH's birthday). It worked out perfectly for us and we didn't have any problems.

We are going down to the courthouse two days before we leave to get legalized but the real wedding that we count, will be in Cabo. This saves a ton of time and money and allows our good friend to officiate the ceremony in Mexico.

Thanks for all the responses! I would normally be ok going through the legal process in Mexico...but I have wussy arms and its close to impossible to get blood drawn and the last thing I want on my wedding day is to be covered in bruises! hahahahaha Just wasn't sure if it was best to get married before, or ok after we get back from Mexico...we'll continue with our after plans!

 

Thanks ladies!

This is what we did, and it worked.

 

Here in San Diego, anyone can pay 50 dollars and be a commissioner for the day. We are not religious, and wanted a secular/civil ceremony, so we had asked our good friend to perform the ceremony. We never had two ceremonies. She received her certificate, we took it down to Mexico, and told the county we were getting married on 6/8/08 in San Diego county, on the beach. ON the certificate it says June 8, 08, but the location in San Diego county. This way, my sister was still a witness without having to come back to San Diego. It worked out beautifully.

I'm sorry ladies...I'm really confused. I'm planning for our wedding at Dreams Los Cabos resort for July 4, 2009. My fiance and I are planning on having our legal ceremony in Los Cabos at Dreams. Has anyone does this? If so, have you had difficulties with getting legally married in Mexico. We are going to arrive that Tuesday June 30, 2009 to handle the paper work and blood work. I'm just trying to understand why most of you got legally married in the US instead of Mexico. Was it just for money reason, since it was cheaper? I just want to make sure we are making the right decision and will not have any issues with our marriage being legally recognized in the states. any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
