  • Wedding: October 2010

I don’t think you would have to pretend to just be dating. People will be understanding of the fact that you had to get legally married because of immigration issues. I think you can count whatever date you’d like as your anniversary. Or have two! 😀 I think it could be cute for him to plan the anniversary celebrations for the civil ceremony and then you could be in charge of the formal wedding anniversary each year.

I think the two of you will have to talk and come to some sort of an agreement concerning the “formal” wedding. Perhaps you can give in and agree to the bigger wedding and he could give in and agree to not have it several states away. If you aren’t comfortable with the idea of having a 2nd wedding then just do a reception. I think it would be like a couple having a destination wedding and then having a hometown reception when they returned. You also wouldn’t have to do a huge, formal dinner. Perhaps do appetizers and cake? You should also tell your Fiance that you don’t feel comfortable having a lavish wedding when you can’t contribute much.

You could also plan this wedding on your 1 year anniversary and just have it be like a big anniversary party.


Hope these ideas help…sorry they’re a little jumbled.
