Hi Shakara,
I just didn't want the hassle of having to deal with all the paperwork, translations, etc. Also when we originally were deciding on a DW, we were looking at Mexico and they require blood tests, which I didn't really want to do in a foreign country.

Plus we wanted a way to include my grandfather since he wouldn't be able to travel down there for the wedding. He was absolutely tickled that we included him in our day and I know it meant the world to him.

I also had my bands made from gold/diamonds from my grandmother's rings that she left me and that was just the cherry on top for him!

Congratulations-this is awesome! I too am going to get legally married before our symbolic ceremony in Mexico. It is a secret to everyone also. My Dad and my best friend will go with us to the courthouse. I want my Dad there since he won't "walk me down the aisle".

Thanks! That's great!! I really think I'm gonna look into it... my grandma who pratically raised me isn't coming... not because of her age but she's blind and takes care of my aunt whos handicapped soo it's just too much for her to go down... but it really makes me sad. So that's an awesome idea to do it before not only to avoid all the paperwork and hassle but to have her there

thanks again!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
