We are getting married in Mexico and we do for sure want a civil ceremony so it is legal on that day. My mom was initially upset I wasn't getting married in a church so I was looking into possibly having a second officiant in addition to the judge so it is more personable and has a less legal feel to it. Has anyone ever done both and was it worth the extra money to have the second officiant? Wedding coordinator said it'd be $590. Thanks!

My friend got married two weeks ago in Mexico and did the civil cermony in the US. Even though her husband is mexician (born, raised and a citizen), there seemed to be a lot of red tape involved, so they just found it easier to do it here and do the church wedding in mexico, in his family's church.


Sorry if that wasn't helpful.
