A friend of a friend got legally married in Mexico a few years back. They ended up getting a divorce later, which ended up taking years and costing tons of money because of the ties to mexico. Not that any of us are thinking of crappy circumstances like that at this point, that is one of the downfalls of getting married out of your home country. There are other reasons, such as not having to get your certificates notarized or translated when you come back, and also, renewal of vows are a lot cheaper usually! As my wedding coordinator explained it to me, the whole ceremony looks exactly the same except when people would normally sign the marriage certificate, we sign some piece of paper that has no legal value. Also the wedding isn't performed by someone who is recognized by law to marry people (not sure what they're called). These two little differences are saving us about $1000 - the diff between a legal wedding ceremony and a renewal of vows ceremony at the place where I'm having my wedding.
Of course there are benefits to having a legal wedding at your destination - its real and you don't have to "pretend" to get married, and so on. Everyone has their own opinion. I hope that helps

I actually did my legal day in Vancouver. We went out to the park at Kits Beach...beautiful backdrop! Then went to dinner at the sandbar on granville island. It was perfect!
