This is awesome - thanks for sharing! What type of ceremony did you have in Mexico? Was it the legal or symbolic? I am having a hard time knowing what order things are going to be happening... I wonder if it's different for each officiant or if they follow a standard?

Symbolic.

Did you have a look in the script thread ? You will find a lot of scripts that will help you see in what order things happen !

Also you should try and contact your officiant in order to obtain a copy of what he or she thinks of doing - because you should be able to customize to your liking.

I'm glad I found this thread. I'm signing the papers with the FI in Toronto before we fly down to Mexico for the ceremony. We wanted to avoid having to arrange all the documents and getting the blood work done there. I was just hoping to find a way to pose the program so people can't really tell that its not the legal wedding there with the signing of certificate and such. Thanks for the advice everyone!
