My fiancee is adament on a legal ceremony, ithink its a crazy expense but he feels if we are asking people to come and pay for the trip that we can pay for the true legal trip.. i disagree but lost that battle haha..
definetly need to look into the photography!!
can i ask what the deal is on the bonfire? i havent heard anything about that o[ption, but would be great welcome day or something!!
AS well I just did email invites to save date, but for you who did own invites, did you use template? Im hoping to do them this weekend but really should have looked more into it all sooner!! Procrastination!!
I would talk to whoever you contact at Dreams is and find out all the things you need to do to have the legal ceremony.... if you want a catholic ceremony, you cannot do it on the beach, you have to go to one of the local Catholic Churches. If you just want it legal, I believe a judge comes out, which is then another fee.... While I understand and agree with your fiance...... if your paying nearly $2000 to make it legal in a country that isn't even yours, plus the cost of making it legal back here (not to mention how LONG that will take because it takes a long time to get the paper work back)...... just something to keep in mind. You can always get legally married AFTER back home, so it's not like you did it before....again, just something in my honest opinion that seems to be a huge waste of money/hassle when you don't have to do the same things legally back home....
I would look into the photography pretty quickly.... November is a pretty busy month, especially since your getting married this year!
Here's the info for the bonfire that Eleane sent me, hope it helps!
I would send your your save the dates quickly, so that way people know...... and get your invites out as quickly as you can! People need time to put money aside... and you really can't do the same timeline as a traditional wedding (3-4 weeks), as it requires more planning (people need to check their passports, ensure they are up to date... save money.... get the time off work for a week, etc.) How many people are you inviting?
