Yes, you get your marriage license at a registry here prior to your legal ceremony(they are only valid for so many days, I want to say 60 - i think we got ours on a tuesday and got married on the thursday).. then you go get married, and if you use lynda she sends in everything for you so by the time you get back from your wedding and honeymoon your marriage will be registered and you will be able to go in to a registry and order your marriage certificate (takes two days).
For down in mexico you dont need anything if you are having a symbolic wedding. I just talked to my wedding planner and let her know that we were doing a 'symbolic' wedding but wanted it to look 'real'. She said she would take care of it and provide certificates etc for us to sign to make it look real.
Does that make sense?

Time's really ticking away now! Lots to do! Bridal Shower #1 is on saturday. I was updating my registry and I hate that I can see what's already been purchased! Well, hate AND love because I see we got the Dyson vacuum that we desperately needed. WHOOP WHOOP!

And I know what you mean, I hate that I can see what's been purchased also. I want to be surprised!
I'm having my shower on Sunday. Can't wait.

Soooo I was thinking I wasn't going to register anywhere just because people were traveling so far for the wedding, I don't really expect many gifts but I never really thought about the shower. Did everyone register somewhere? Nadine & Kris did you get many gifts.....

We registered because our family wanted to buy us gifts and were asking where we were registered. We've registered at the bay and home outfitters.
Nadine, I would love to go for drinks sometime!Great idea. Weekends will be packed for me from now until when we leave for our wedding.

As for wedding gifts, we were actually really surprised. I think we got a gift from everyone that came to our wedding except two couples?? And we had 62 people at our wedding. And then outside of that, we got probably another 20 gifts from people who couldnt come. We really werent expecting anything.
