                  Thank you Rose!!

                  I'm worried about how I am going to keep it a secret too. I would be okay with just telling our parents and siblings about our "legal" wedding date and have them there as our witnesses. Only problem is there is no way FIs parents or brother will be able to come visit us prior to the wedding. I'd feel bad only having my family there and not his. We are thinking of just asking two friends to be our witnesses.... but if my mom found out I think she would be really upset!!

                   

                  I think having a pre-wedding AHR is a great idea! But I totally understand what you mean about it taking away from your Mexico wedding! If I were more organized I would love to have a pre-wedding reception. Kind of like a way for people who can't come to wish you well and a farewell party in one!

                  I keep worrying that people will feel ripped off if they know that our Mexico wedding is symbolic and not legal. Even though I'm sure most people would understand when you tell them about all the hoops you have to jump through, and extra costs! My biggest fear about getting married legally in Mexico is the stories about people having to wait 6-8 months just to get their wedding certificate! Yikes!

She's fantastic, can't wait!

                   

                  We're also doing our legal here before going. Thing with us is, at first we figure we would do our legal the same day as our reception in town, but as the days past, I'm worried it would take away from our Mexico wedding. Because we can't "escape" from anyone the reception day....our whole wedding party will have to come with us to the legal ceremony - and they're coming with us to Mexico....so it won't be a secret then (like it is now)... 

                  I had to do a lot of damage control in the early days of intending to have this "secret" legal ceremony.

                   

                  I'm so tempted to get it all done here first without telling anyone so we don't have to fuss on the reception day about it, but two witnesses are needed. Lol, maybe we can work something out together

                    I had all the same worries too, but have decided to do the legal wedding here and have two friends who are not going to Mexico be the witnesses.  At first I felt guilty about not telling people the ceremony in Mexico will be symbolic, but as far as I am concerned, Mexico will be my real wedding.  My friends and family are going to witness us promise ourselves to each other for the rest of our lives.  To me, that is much more important than signing a legal document.

                      Hey ladies, I am also a May 2011 bride. Our date is May 5th at the Dreams Punta Cana!!!

                      I can't believe how quickly time is flying by! I feel like there is so much to do, and not enough time!!

                      Still need to send out the invitations (they will be going out before the end of this month); finalizing the decor, programs, and some of the fun things like getting the bridesmaid dresses, and my own accessories!!!!
