    I don't think you can change the date of your wedding/marriage certificate if you get married in Canada. The meeting the judge at 1 and having the symbolic at 5 is a great idea though! I never even thought of that.

      I agree with the poster above. There is no way you can change the date on your legal wedding certificate...in fact, I'm willing to bet that any tampering or attempts to do so would make it totally invalid.

        I actually wouldn't have thought of that either if it wasn't for my WC lol.

        I wanted my date really badly but the ceremony WITH the judge wasn't available that day - so she suggested it and I said, fine by me!  To everyone that will be there, they won't know the difference anyways!

          Yes it would say the date. Sorry. My FI has his heart set on the 2nd of August so I just let him have his way :) I am also signing the papers at 12 on the second and doing a symbolic wedding at 6. The embassy really does everything for you and you can do it in advance to make sure that nothing is missing. Now that everything is done- It wasn't all that bad. Its stressful because you have so much to think about but I have already sent everything to the hotel and now I don't have to think about it. Good luck

            I would NOT recommend WEDO.com. The rules, at least from the USA, have changed in the last year and she either didn't entirely understand the changes or didn't want to help me understand them. I would recommend just going through your consulate. We did it all through mail and, once I understood the process (the consulate was MUCH more helpful), it was really quick.
