Trisha - That's definitely a great idea about having a symbolic ceremony. We did the same thing when we were married in the Riviera Maya last June. The best part is, no one realizes and it still really is your BIG DAY! We're celebrating our destination wedding anniversary as our "real" anniversary date as well. Good luck with everything and best of luck with the planning! The day and night go so fast so cherish every minute!

Iâ€™m not having a MOH or a best man; we just decided to keep it small & simple. Just the two of us! Then should be 6-8 people!
I was a little worried about the heat too, but itâ€™ll all work out!
We are going to have a symbolic ceremony and get married here in Oklahoma at the court house, or justice of the peace or whatever they call it. J I just didnâ€™t want to do the whole marriage certificate in Spanish, and worry about the blood test and all that stuff down there. We will go by August 19th as our anniversary date though, and not the date we get married here at home. Iâ€™ve heard that when you go to the courthouse to get married, it feels like youâ€™re going to sign a few papers, and is just like signing mortgage papers or something!
Iâ€™m feeling pretty much the same way you are, but I know that itâ€™ll all work out. Iâ€™ve just had some dreams about my make up not being right and then I had a dream about the stylist cutting my hair off( I have long brown hair) and dying it blonde while I was there, and it freaked me out! But, thatâ€™s because Iâ€™m really big on my pictures, I want them to turn out good, and Iâ€™m a picture freak! Other than that, Iâ€™m feeling okay as of now!
We are staying at the resort for a 7nights/8Days, so itâ€™s a honeymoon/wedding. I would love to stay longer, but got to get back to work! We plan on taking another vacation in February (hopefully) though, and so thatâ€™ll be sort of like our honeymoon.
Iâ€™m so excited though!! We have been together a long time and we are now making it official!
