Question for anyone doing the legal part at home

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

So for people who are doing the legal part of the weddnig before (or after) the DW, where are you guys going to do it? It doesn't make sense to rent out a place for just a couple people, but I still want it to look decent. Any ideas?

We did our service in the chapel and then we had a little brunch at my mother inlaw's house. She had bagels and lunch meats and cakes. It was perfect

We are holding our legal ceremony right before our at home reception. Our home reception is 2 weeks after our DW and we are just having a 4 hour dessert and cocktail reception starting at 8 PM. We're having our legal ceremony at 7pm so we'll just have family come a little early. We originally were going to have it before our DW but it didn't make sense to rent a separate space or have our family travel twice.

we are doing our legal ceremony by a judge just before our AHR...venue is on a lake so there is a gazebo to have a small ceremony...kinda nice for those who will be unable to travel to our first wedding.

We're doing it at City Hall (several months before the "real" wedding South). Mostly because we're moving abroad and it will just make things easier for us . Only our families will be there - it's a 9am thing - and we'll go out for a nice breakfast afterwards.

We just did ours at city hall in San Francisco. SF's city hall was gorgeous, so it was really nice. Then just a couple family members and friends went out to dinner.

We're secretly getting married at home before and not telling our guests! I know that sounds rude but Its so much easier. Less paper work, no blood test, ect...

We are getting married first and not telling anyone too. It will be one less thing to worry about right before your married. We aren't going to exchange rings or anything...we will do that at the ceremony

 

As for your question farrah, I was told as long as you don't change your name on your license/passport you will be fine. Just do that when you come home!

We're going to City Hall just with our parents as witnesses. We figured we didn't want people to feel ripped off after they're flying in to see us getting married, but later find out it was unofficial. So we're keeping it on a totally hush hush.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
