What do most people do? Any suggestions for me on this one? Seems like a bummer to already be married when I leave for my wedding
You could get married legally after your DW when you are home - if you don't want to take away from it by getting married before you go. You also need blood tests taken if you are getting legally married in Mexico, and as mentioned above the legal marriage is more expensive and only said in Spanish with a translator. I would consider waiting to be legally married when you are home - cheaper, easier, and won't take away from your wedding day!
