We're trying to plan how far in advance of leaving for the DW we need to go to the courthouse at home.

We are doing the courthouse legal stuff today. I am not thinking of this as my wedding and instead it is just the paperwork. I am not changing my last name until after our DW in Mexico. I just dont want to have to jump through all of the loopholes while we are in Mexico.

That is a great question KimmyG....
How far in advance are you ladies planning on going to the courthouse before leaving for your destination wedding? I would like to do it as close to when we leave as possible. But would I need to bring the legal paperwork with me to the resort in order for them to do the blessing ceremony? How long does the paperwork take?....I have got some homework to do...

Doing a year ahead is a good idea. I hadn't really thought about that, but there's still time for it! I might have to talk to the DH about that.

I need to do some research about how it's done in IL! Thanks ladies!

We are planning on having our "legal" ceremony the day before we leave for Mexico but not exchanging rings. We'll consider the ring exchange our actual marriage. If we are required to exchange rings in NJ (not sure of the law), then we will probably just get cheap fake ones. I know we need a witness, so I'll probably have my dad come and then we will go for celebratory drinks after.

I'm probably going to do my legal when I return home from my Mexico DW.
