I'm sure none of my guests would rather attend the city hall ceremony vs. the 'real' symbolic ceremony!

I personally think it would be weird for me to walk down the aisle and say vows at the DW and know that you arent quite married yet...KWIM?

I had gotten laid off right about the time we got engaged and I really needed health insurance so we figured we would just get married in the courthouse sooner since we planned to do it before we left for Jamaica anyway. It did not feel like a real wedding at all and we do not consider ourselfs to have a had a wedding yet. The real wedding will be Dec 4, 2009!
I was starting to think that we're the only couple in the world that's secretly married and planning a wedding but I feel like we're on more solid ground now!

I am having the same worries. We are getting legally married before we go as they require a marriage certificate to do the symbolic ceremony. We have decided to have our BM and his wife to be our witness and we will only tell our parents when it is over with. There were concerns of having our families there as if we only invite certain people others will then get hurt. Just doing it simple and plain and hopefully that will make our real day as real as possible.!
