    We are secretly getting married here first. I think we are going to use a wedding commissioner in whistler and do it on the mountain somewhere with a couple friends who don't really know any of our other friends and won't be in Mexico as witnesses

      I love this idea!!! It's so sweet! Let us know how it goes!

          wow,
          I started this thread a few months ago and didn't really expect to get so many replies. Well, I'm doing the "legal part" TOMORROW!!!! AAAAAA!!!! We're just doing it at the marriage commissioner's house. Its an old victorian place and she is having us stay for champagne and a little celebration after. Then we're going out for dinner at a fancy resaurant on a mountain. It was supposed to be a secret, but now literally EVERYONE knows, but they're all pretending like they don't know, and they all feel special because they think they are the only ones who know. Only my immediate family is going to be there - FI's fam lives in another province. Yaaay! Today is my last day of not being married!

              Tammikins, Congratulations! Can you tell me who that marriage commissioner is? We will also do a legal thing before getting married in Mexico. I would love to know who's "good" in the marriage commissioner world in VancouveR!

                  This is a tough decision. I know FI's grandparents won't be coming. They are in their 80's and im sure won't/can't travel. It would be nice to have them see us married. But i don't want everyone else commenting on the "well you're already techincally married" thing.

                    We will be secretly getting married before but my family has been quite suspicious of this. It is driving me nuts haha

                      haha we've been having a little trouble dodging questions about the wedding lately because NONE of our family knows that we're doing the legal stuff ahead of time and FI's brother did a DW a few years ago so they know all about needing bloodwork and getting papers translated etc. I feel bad that FI's mom keeps checking if we've got our appointment booked for the blood test and when and where (she thnks she needs to know all the details on our behalf!!!!) and all I can say is "yep, we've got everything taken care of" because I don't know how else to avoid more questions from her! LOL!

                      People will probably find out some time down the road but I don't think they'll mind too much because the one thing his brother & SIL have always said was that the only part they'd have done differently is to skip out on the hassle of bloodwork and translations...
