Non-Legal Marriages-when are you making it legal?

Recommended Posts

We're planning on doing it soon even though we're getting married next feb. We plan on keeping it hush hush. The reason we're doing it early is so that we can buy a house together as a married couple. Another perk is that you get a few extra $$ from your paycheck as a married person - we plan to use this for our honeymoon - kinda silly but practical.

We Ijust got back from our symbolic ceremony which was fabulous at Secrets Maroma. I will post pics, etc. later this month. Our parents were a little upset when they saw pics, so our legal ceremony on May 1 will be another beach ceremony at the boardwalk in Point Pleasant, NJ by the mayor of Manasquan who loves to marry people. Parents and sibblings will be there then dinner at a local restaurant. So.....in the end we are having the wedding we should have had from the start. However, our Mexico wedding will always be our special one.

We were legally married a couple of days before we went to Mexico. No witnesses were required and we didn't tell anyone. We just figured it was easier for us to handle the legal stuff here in the US and it was more cost effective.

We are actually having a dinner with our parents and grandparents and best man (who's baby is due a few wks. before the wedding.) Since the brother and grandparents aren't coming to Mexico we are going to get "married" at the restaurant and with them as witnesses and give gifts so we don't have to take them to Mexico....and its just one more fun event to look forward to!

We are having our legal ceremony at our new house (we have a cute backyard) on May 30th. We are inviting our parents and grandparents to attend since our grandparents can't make it to the DW. It won't be anything exciting, but we wanted something special for our grandparents to participate in. Our DW will be our "real" wedding with special vows, dress, decorations, etc... on June 20.

Congratulations LesleyAnne!
I'm a future SMB bride and can't wait to see your pics and hear your story. We have a similar plan, intimate symbolic ceremony at Secrets with the legal reception at home later.

We also took care of the legal part before we went to Cancun. We kept it a secret though, only immediate family knew. We had a symbolic ceremony (and sand ceremony) in Cancun that was really special and emotional.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
