Just so that everyone knows, the symbolic ceremony you have in mexico looks real. We got married at the town hall a month or so ahead of time, but we just did a quick ceremony, no vows, literally about 2 minutes. For our ceremony in Mexico, I wrote the ceremony, chose the vows we would use, had our daughter do a reading, and incorporated the hand ceremony. It was very nice and they have you sign a certificate at the end, a few people knew we had gotten legally married beforehand, but you really couldn't tell that it wasn't a "legal" ceremony.
I was very against getting married beforehand because I felt like it wouldn't be the same, but I think it was worth not having the extra headaches. And honestly, I don't even remember the date of when we got legally married because to us our wedding date is October 19th.
I understand why some people choose to do the legal part if Mexico, but just wanted to reassure those that are doing the legal part at home.
