What's the difference? I can't seem to find a straight answer. We are planning to be legally married in the states and then having the wedding and celebration in mexico. But I'm not sure if there's a difference between the two options. Will there be an officiant at a symbolic ceremony? I will be getting married at Playacar Palace.

 

Thank you

HI!

 

Yes there will be an officiant. To the guests it will look exactly like a normal ceremony with the vows, exchanging of the rings, signing of paper, but it is just not legal. A civil ceremony you need a judge from the civil registry and  symbolic you just have an officiant. 

 

Not much difference though. 

 

If you ever have any more questions let me know and I will be happy to help!

Vow renewal typically is years later, like a 10 year anniversary. Yours is symbolic in that you're already going to be legally married. We are doing the same, but will still consider the wedding date to be our wedding not when we signed the papers ;)
