      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.

            Don't worry. You'll be so excited at your DW and that's what you'll look back and remember the most.

              We are doing the legal part beforehand as well..we see it as just a formality. As others have said the re-do is your DW!

                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!
