    Did you buy your dress, after booking your location, that's the first thing I'd do. SOmetimes they can take 5 months to come in, then 2-3 mos for alterations.

        I'm bringing up the subject of...Legal vs. Symbolic ceremony. Who is doing what? Is it easier do the legal thing before you head down for your DW? It seems to me with the little research and threads that I have read it would be ALOT cheaper. I would worry what day we should celebrate our actual anniversay on? If we decide to do it this way (which I'm leaning torwards the more I read) I would do the legal part HUSH HUSH, where only the FI and I were there. No one needs to know the ceremony on the beach is "pretend"! :mswink:  What is everyone elses thoughts?

          I have gone back and forth on this subject... I have decided to just get married in St. Lucia.  I think if we did it here first I would do it hush hush but then like you said... do you celebrate that day or the day of you "DW"     and I know myself... I would want to do something special if we did it here first because it would be a special day.  I think in the end I decided I just wanted to have one wedding date.

           

          If I was going to Mexico or anywhere that required blood test and stuff like that I would def do it here first. 

           

          I don't think it is a bad idea though!

            I know. I originally thought, since there are no blood tests/translations it would be just as easy and you wouldn't have two dates, plus we are having an at home reception. (not that you have a special date for that). At the resort we chose...it is $300 for the legal ceremony, and $150 for the symbolic ceremony. I figure...thats $150 more that I can use torwards decor or something else. I'm on the fence still...but the more I read about it the more I'm thinking it would be just as easy to get married here first. I'm afraid if we told anyone, however, his parents would throw a fit. They are already causing drama about this whole wedding and the fact that we are leaving the country for it. I'm trying not to let them stress me out!!
