If You Are Having A Symbolic/Renewal Ceremony...

Recommended Posts

Will you consider the day you had your ceremony in Mexico your anniversary or the date you actually got married in the States?

 

 

My best friend is ordained (she is a wedding planner and most of them get ordained just in case there is ever a problem with the minister, preacher, justice of the peace, or whatever not showing up) and she is going to be the one to marry us after we get back from Mexico. We will just have a symbolic ceremony there....

 

But, the date we are choosing to have the symbolic ceremony is the date we really wanna get "married." Like, legally. However, it's going to have to be a date than we originally wanted just to avoid all the hassle of getting legally married in Mexico.

 

 

So, which date will you celebrate?

We will get legally married before we go, but our REAL wedding will be on the beach like we've always dreamt it to be. So we'll celelbrate on that day

This is so my issue right now!

 

We are planning on getting legally married in the US. I want the date in Mexico to be our anniversary date. What I would love though is for one of our friends to get ordained online and marry us in Mexico. Is that considered a legal marriage there?

We are looking in to this. My best friend just did it online because it was convenient and fast in case she needed to marry one of her brides.

I would love this! As soon as I find out, I will let you know!

I'll celebrate our anniversary on our legal wedding date here in the US. That is going to be a private ceremony with only the two of us and this is where we will use the vows we are writing.

pretty sure it would NOT be considered a legal ceremony in Mexico -they're pretty strict.

 

we'll celebrate our Mexico ceremony day, but won't be legally married until some day later in Hawaii!

That's what I figured....it was worth a shot though.

 

 

Does anyone know if we have to take a birth certificate if we are only having a symbolic ceremony? I have 3 diff. last names and it gets so confusing,

 

Plus, I am divorced and that is another reason we are having the symbolic ceremony over there...too much paperwork and hassle with translating everything.

I want to say dreams said we just needed birth certificates or ID's, I can't remember which, I have to check on that.

the date that we got married in Mexico. the day that we went to the courthouse felt like any other procedure. we didn't dress up (I wore black juicy sweats) and didn't do anything else to celebrate or document it... unless you count going to buy a digital camera right afterward for our trip.

 

real romantic, I know wink.gif
