I am not sure if I understand your complete question....but we are getting legally married here in Colorado and having a symbolic ceremony in Mexico. I've talked with our wedding coordinator at Mp and she assured me that no one will know the difference as we don't want anyone to know we aren't getting legally married there.
The costs associated with the legal part of things were enormous, and quite honestly annoying. I want to go there to have a blast and not worry about apostilles or blood tests....and don't forget the extra like $500 for all of that!
So we are opting for the cheap and easy route. $35 for our license in Colorado and $0 worries while in Mexico!
