For those of you who are getting married legally at home - are you using a wedding package or do you use the vow renewal packages? I never thought of that until reading your posts. Are you telling your guests that you'll be legally married before? I was hoping to avoid telling them... there's already been a lot of drama about us being "selfish" for having a destination wedding, I'm sure that would cause some uneccessary stress.
We went with one of the renewal of the vow packages. We have only told a select few (my mom, MOH, and BM) that we did it already, otherwise, no we are keeping it quiet! We decided not to tell anyone, and it was recommended by our TA to keep it quiet. Otherwise we'd have people who wouldn't go "because we were already married." I had talked to Rocio and she said not to worry, they wouldn't do anything different in the ceremony to let on that it wasn't the legal ceremony!
