    Can you make a Symbolic Ceremony look like the real deal? I dont want to feel like im ripping my family off and they are not witnessing my wedding if we are already married .

    Do you get a marraige Certificate?

    We cant make up our mind to have a legal or Symbolic.

    I want the legal, my FI want the Symbolic due to red tape as you all already know.

      For sure! Our symbolic ceremony is almost identical to the legal one we are having before we leave for our wedding in Cabo. The only difference is that we won't be signing anything (Im sure you could work something out if you wanted to for show). Our minister in Cabo is even giving us a certificate afterwards!

        I'm having a symbolic wedding-we're getting married at home. We're not telling anyone! I'm going to have regular vows no one will even know its not real.

            I am having a symbolic ceremony-my script sounds like the real deal to me.

              I had a symbolic ceremony. My mom told me it was the best wedding she ever attended in her life ! (and it was not because I'm her daughter) so for sure it must have looked like the real deal. Our Minister made us sign a certificate so it also looked "official" !

                We had symbolic and didn't tell anyone! No one knew the difference! We even signed a certificate" to make it look official.

                    As the above ladies already said, Symbolic pretty much covers everything the way the legal one would, and looks like you can sort something out with a certificate!

                    Anything I checked before i decided on a legal ceremony was telling me no-one would know the difference!

                    Best of luck

                      I also had a Symbolic ceremony last december 1st. It was awesome, very romantic and the vows we exchaged were as real as in a legal ceremony. My minister was Marcho Arechiga, and he did a great job putting together a special ceremony for us.

                      No one could tell the difference. :)
