    Just my 2 cents to clear up any confusion. If you opted to have a LEGAL ceremony at your resort, then NO you do no need to "legalize" it in the U.S. It will be a legal marriage already. In some countries (like D.R. for example), it is a lot of paperwork and $$ to have a LEGAL ceremony. So in our case, we are having a SYMBOLIC ceremony (which is an actual ceremony and no one would even know it is not a legal ceremony). We plan to marry secretly in the U.s. BEFORE we go. That way we can celebrate a real honeymoon as well. :)

      For us, we are getting married in France and France has strict restrictions that you have to be a resident for at least 40 days to have a legal ceremony there so we are going to do a symbolic ceremony first and do the legal one after we get back. We are big proponents of pre-nups so we just don't have the time to get that done before the DW so we will get them done afterwards and have a legal ceremony here in the U.S. (maybe Hawaii, maybe Vegas, who knows...).

        That would be my perfect wedding. But My FI doesn't think it would be fair to have a wedding in Mexico and then a wedding in Colorado (where we live) because his family and friends live in tx so we couldn't have them come out here too.

          We will be doing the legal stuff upon our return to the , this was it feels more like filling out paperwork when we get home that having this big secret marriange before we leave. I am bad with secrets. Also Mexico will be the first time we say the vows to each other.
