I actually do feel like I am doing quite a bit of planning/stressing, but none of it is for the destination wedding! My fiance and I are getting legally married back home before we leave for Mexico. Originally I had envisioned the two of us with our parents at the courthouse and then a simple dinner out afterwards. However my fiance really wants the dog to be there (since he obviously can't come to Mexico), and after everything that I am getting my way on with the wedding it is only fair that he gets to have this. So now we have to get legally married outdoors which means finding a park, finding an officiant for a weekend (likely a Sunday), so now siblings want to come, possibly having our photographer there, getting a nicer dress, and a bigger dinner event. I am letting the Mexico wedding float for the time being since so much is coordinated by the resort while I try to get a handle on planning this second ceremony.
The cool thing is that I now get to have 2 wedding ceremonies, 2-3 receptions (dinner after legal, reception in Mexico, At Home Party when we return), and 2 honeymoons (we are staying in Mexico a few extra days and then we just booked a Mediterranean cruise for September of next year as a honeymoon/1 year anniversary trip). Yeah for destination weddings!!!
