FI was very much against the idea at first, feeling like we would be "cheating" our guests. After discussing it with some close friends, they all said go for it, who cares where you sign the papers. It's the exchanging of vows and rings that counts.
We wanted to keep it a secret to everyone, and only tell our parents a week or two before so they could be there for the legal part. But one of FI's friend told her mom (who is invited, being a family friend). That mom reacted very well, but since the cat is out of the bag, we decided to tell our parents before they learn from anyone else. As I thought, my mom reacted very well. His mom, though, does not seems to understand the concept AT ALL. At first she wanted to make the ceremony here a big deal. She even wanted us to get married in a church, but thank god we are both divorced so that is not even an option. Then she wanted us to just tell everyone that it will only be the reception in Cuba, but the wedding will be here. Poor FI had to repeat over and over again that there WILL BE a ceremony in Cuba, that we are ONLY legally signing papers here, and just not to tell anyone anything. Really hope she won't go and confuse everyone...

If you get the Ontario Marriage Licence for $130, then you just need to perform the ceremony and I assume that will cost whatever that particular person charges?
