What a lot of people do for destination weddings is to have a legally binding ceremony at home and then do a symbolic ceremony in their destination. It really helps with paperwork! So, if you are going to do that, absolutely it’s possible! However, I don’t think you can have two different legally binding wedding ceremonies. Symbolic ceremonies generally look exactly like regular ones except you don’t have to sign any paperwork.

@Cindy-20:  We are legally getting married in our hometown then having a symbolic ceremony at our destination wedding so no papers will be signed there. I felt like for us it just made it easier plus our destination wedding certificate would have been in spanish if we got married there legally and we would have had to translate it

Yes it’s possible but DO NOT DO IT.

I have a friend who is trying to divorce and is having a really hard time because they did this (legally married in California, and then legally married in Canada).
