    Boo, it's that reason specifically that we decided NOT to have a legal here first and do everything in Cabo. We're also lucky in the sense that we're only required to be there 2 days before, not 4 like in other areas (which is a long time, and not possible for a lot of couples!). I understand your FI not wanting to call you "wife" because it will take away from the ceremony you;ll have in just a few weeks!

    I have to say though, we have been out since and having fianc©e/hubbie introduce me as his fianc©e kinda really sucked! That’s the thing, cause now I am like who am I? ha ha.  Also we were finalizing our maracas and I thought of putting our soon to be joint last name, and that got kyboshed and that made me sad. Pre-Legal Day I probably would have said the same, lets keep it casual but now I am like it will be our last name and I am excited to share it and have it everywhere and dearest was like lets not get ahead of ourselves. He meant well (as in make sure you will still go thru all those fun emotions in Mexico) but bah! I find there is so much stress and sorrow in our day to day lives that it really did suck for me to have to consciously be less excited now.

I leave in 5 days & Cameo & Cufflinks haven't called me for a 2nd fitting yet!!! I finally went for my first fitting about 2 weeks ago....if the dress doesn't fit perfectly there's nothing i can do about it. My days are completely booked from now right up until the day we leave....

        I think Monday is her last day, sorry I am not 100% sure which days in October. Yikes, sorry didnt mean to stress you out. I just know when she was over last Monday she said that she only had one more wedding and then she is off for October - I am sure she meant you! She is great - very nice lady! Sorry again.

          Really, 2 days?!  Is there a loophole that you can share? :)  We have to change our flights if we decide to do a legal ceremony in Mexico (arriving 3 days before right now), but if there's a way to swing 2 days...

              It's true! This is off the Los Cabos Tourism website, and I've been told by Dreams as well (2 days):

               

              "Typically, two to four days must be spent in Cabo San Lucas to complete the requirements, although less time may be required when a wedding coordinator is involved."

               

              Talk to your WC! Basically it's as fast as they can get it done.
