I don’t know where you want to go… but associate pastors are pretty good picks to do weddings as they supplement their income with weddings, and may be easier to find than a senior pastor who has just preached 3 services.  Some pastors are even on disability, like a friend of mine who writes curriculum and runs periodic retreats.  she welcomes a chance to do weddings.  If you get married in the Carribean, you will want to check out some of the local pastors- do it through the major denoms… like the Lutheran Synod, United Methodist Church, Episcopal  etc.  You can get a lot done through email.

If you get married in a US property like the US Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico, it should simplify things.  At any rate, now is the time to make sure passports are in order and that you have a clear idea of who is going to be able to come with you on the trip.  My son is going to an all inclusive in Cancun for his honeymoon and he was freaking out about not having a passport- we reminded him that we “made” him do that several years ago.  He’d totally forgotten about it.

You could also do the legal ceremony at home on the 10th (in secret, if you want) and then do the symbolic ceremony at your destination. I’ve been researching Mexico becuase I think we are eloping there and lots of Destination Wedding brides do the legal ceremony at home and do a symbolic ceremony in MX because the MX requirements involve blood tests, lots of paperwork, a waiting period, etc.
