Ceremony in Playa & Church/Recep back home
Posted 30 July 2008 - 01:49 PM
I was just wondering if anyone is having a ceremony in Playa, then going back home and having another ceremony, but in the church and having a party?? If so, was it stressful? Your experiences will really help! thanks!

My fiance's family is very religious and he wants to do it for his parents which I totally understand. Our dream is to get married on the beach so we are doing that. The reception back home is going to be at my sister's house and we are doing a very low key bbq where you pay for a personal griller to come and cook for your guests. So, that as well will not be too expensive. Most people are telling me they spent $10k and over..and we will not come close to that w/ both parties so we feel great about that!
One plus is I get to wear my dress twice and I have to admit it will be nice to have two ceremonies. That way..the family that can't make it out to Playa can still see us get married )
Just stressed out seeing that I have a very close-minded sister that tells me it's "so weird" that someone would get married twice and wear their dress twice. ugh!!! It's hard dealing w/ peoples opinions especially since you are using her house!!
Thanks for the replies!!

so, we didnt do 2 for religious reasons, not in a church etc, but 1 at home more for the families, and 1 DW for us!

pdcbride09, what did you end up deciding? how did it go? I am in the same boat now. I want to have a beach wedding in MX but also want to have it recognized by the church so we're going to get a convalidation (i think it's called) when we come back to the states and go through the courses. I'm not sure about the party thing afterwards though, still debating. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear! Thanks!!
