Married before your destination wedding?

Recommended Posts

Have any of you gotten married at the courthouse before your destination weddings? And did you tell everyone you were married or not?

 

As of today I am not healthy enough to have our destination wedding this year but I am trying to decide whether we should get married here before our destination wedding or not.

A lot of brides get legally married before their DW, I plan on doing this myself to avoid all the extra paper work.  There are quite a few threads on this subject already so make sure you do a search before starting a new one.

My FI and I were talking about this issue but for us here in PA it doesn't save us any money.  So instead of going to the court house and keeping a secret from our parents we are doing everything in Mexico.  Has anyone had problems?

We will be getting married at our couthouse the day before we leave for Mexico.  Our immediate family will know, but we aren't advertising it by any means.  We don't want people to think they can skip Mexico and show up at the courthouse :)  I hope it works out okay!  I'm interested in hearing what other brides who have done it say too.

My FI and I were married in June in our backyard and our DW isn't until February the only people who know are the two people who signed for us and my mom.  It was too much hassel to get everything translated into Spanish.  We will be married almost 9 months before our actual DW but I just considered it the signing of the papers.

Hi Ladies,

 

I spoke with a Moon Palace coordinator the other day who advised that "they no longer require for the documents to be transfered from English to Spanish.  However; the marriage license is issued in Spanish.  If you want to have that translated the cost is $45.00"

 

I would love to have everything done in Mexico.  However; I learned that we can not file our marraige in the commenwealth of PA if you get married in another state or country ;-(  So we decided to get married a few days before we leave.

We're getting legally married at my hometown in California before we leave for Rome. There's too much paperwork and time involved(residency). Plus, having to get everything translated...we have so many other things to worry about. So, we decided get married in the states and have the destination wedding. We're not really doing much of anything during the legal marriage, so the wedding feels more real.

 

We're not telling our guests, but we won't deny it if they ask. None of them considered destination weddings before, so I don't think they'll even think to ask really.

My friend from high school just recently got married but only told her family so that he could get financial aid in school. They still tell people they are engaged and they will consider their big wedding as the official wedding date.
