@Coral99:  

You can marry at the Justice of the Peace, and then go on your honeymoon right away! While there do a cymbolic ceromony (which is what they are anyway most of the time out of the country). My best friend did this, to save on the pain of out of the country paperwork for getting actually “married” there.

 

Marry here, get a short, pretty, happy little dress, then take your handsome new hubby, and your beautiful dream dress and hop on a plain to mexico where you can have a beautiful cymoblic ceremony on the beach, in your beautiful dress with lots of pics taken!!!

Tell them you dont want to say “i do”.. in the symbolic you can say ANYTHING you want.. write each othwer a poem, and read it.. write some special vows you want to say.. anything you want you can have! Its more of a honeymoon celebration of your new marriage where you get to wear your dress, do your makeup and hair, and take lots of pics, but have already said “i do”!

Could you get married on a cruise ship? I know that they have chapels and pastors actually and photographers and spa and makeup people. Maybe take one out of Texas (Galveston) so you don’t have to pay anything or a lot less for airfare. You could get married one of the first nights and the rest is your honeymoon. Maybe it would be easier because it would still be under the US not another country. You could get one of the nicer rooms because it would still be in your budget and not have to worry about the extra expenses with food and activities. 

It stinks with what you are going through but I have faith it will work out. Good Luck! πŸ™‚

It sounds like the two most important things are the honeymoon and having one real wedding but not at the registry office.

How about a garden wedding in your home town? invite nearest and dearest, get a celebrant and have a small reception (afternoon tea maybe). Then take the honeymoon you dream of.

It sounds like the main problem you are having is that to get married in Mexico and stay the extra 4 days before eats up your budget. I think you need to research other places that won’t require that, how about Costa Rica or Turks and Caicos?

+1 yes I like this! Although some cruise chapels aren’t able to legally marry you, so worth checking first.

Thanks, 

I was just researching them and a lot of them look pretty classy and the ship will provide a wedding planner too. And found some that go to Mexico and Jamaica from Texas!

Look into the DR. I don’t know where you’re flying from, but form the East Coast I’ve found it to be really affordable and many resorts have “elopement” packages !!

@Coral99: I love your dress and I think you should wear it for your big day, regardless of where you’re getting married!

If I were you, I would try to find a small chapel/try to find a priest that’s willing to marry you at some scenic place. Any nice parks that you know of? In order to make it special I think it’s important that you either have a connection to the site or that it’s in a different location than just your home city. Could you drive into Lousiana & find something there – then take a flight to Mexico or Cuba? Or fly to New York for the ceremony, then leaving for Bermuda?

An other alternative is to have a fall wedding, September/October, up north.
