          My FI and I are planning our wedding in Panama and we just got all of the requirements from the wedding coordinator...seems to be much like Mexico (blood/urine tests required and all documentation to be translated into Spanish), so with that I think we are now leaning towards a symbolic wedding.  I don't think we are going to tell anyone though just keep it to ourselves.  Most of the posts I've read regarding symbolic weddings the bride and groom usually go to city hall prior to going away...I'm thinking we'll do the legal part of it when we come back so as to not take away from our special day in Panama, which will of course be the day we will forever celebrate.  Any thoughts on doing the legal wedding after the symbolic wedding?

            Legal ceremonies after the wedding are a great option as well! Just be sure to check with your resort and ensure that for their Symbolic ceremony, they do not require the marriage certificate (some do and that could put a damper in the plans to be legally wed after the destination wedding!!).


            Happy Planning!

              Symbolic for us sine a legal wedding in mexico is a pain in the butt.

              I'm a June 2014 bride. Since both of us have been divorced, we are having a symbolic ceremony in Riviera Maya. Otherwise, we would have to spend too much money on translating documents plus we don't need blood tests. We haven't decided if we will tell anyone about the Chicago legal marriage.

                  I am wondering what the etiquette is for tell your guests that it will be a symbolic wedding?  Do they need to know up front?  If you have a friend do it then they will realize it during the cerimony. Any thoughts?
