We talked about that but my company offers Domestic Partner insurance at the same rate as if we were married. We just had to meet a few basic requirements - joint checking account, joint mortgage, etc. That was a real lifesaver.

You will be fine! Trust me! Once your DW hits you will be glad you didnt have a "formal" courthouse wedding! For my FI and I we are doing the same thing as you. It will just be my FI, me, MOH, and BM. We will go get it done than have a bite to eat and do our own thing. We are going to celebrate our anniversary's on our DW day.!

I totally agree with everyone else - no need to regret the way you did it. We're doing the same thing & keeping it casual. We look at the legal day as just paperwork. Your DW will be the real wedding & day you celebrate!

So many girls kept it as low key as possible. We did make a fun little day out of ours, but we wanted to celebrate with two friends who couldn't come to mexico. They were our witnesses. Still, it was nothing fancy & that is how I wanted it. We went to the courthouse & then out for mexican food.

 

Do you have to go back to pick up the certificate? I had to go back a few day later. You could possibly make an event out of that.

If you feel that you must do something to make your legal day special how about planning a nice, romantic evening out, with just you two.

Like Morgan suggested you could always do that the day you pick up your certificate.

I do agree though with the other ladies that your DW is going to be more memorable & special!
