      depending on where family/friends/guests live!?
      I am deciding this as well, my whole family is from Michigan, but there's no way we can get married in the busy summer months and no way we'd be there in winter, SO if people are traveling out to CA (where we live now) to see us get married, why not make it a trip/vacation for everyone and a little cheaper and go to CABO!? Best of luck!

        Im in the same situation. I live in Los Angeles and the FI and I are getting our legal marriage done in CA but doing the symbolic wedding in cabo. Our reason was that we figured we are on vacation and we didnt want to worry about getting blood tests done and having vows read in Spanish with a translator. We just didnt envision that as the type of ceremony we wanted so instead we are having my grandfather perform the ceremony which will be much more personal and meanful for us. Not only that but it just makes me nervous filing important paper work like that in a different country so we figured just save the stress and do it here.

          We are doing the legal part back in the US because we want to have a Mayan ceremony and that is not considered legal in MX. You might want to check to see what the legal ceremony requirements are and if they fit with your vision. We don't plan on telling anyone the ceremony is symbolic and are going to celebrate our anniversary on our symbolic day.
