Question by 16hrs: Can you go to the justice of the peace then go to the have a planned wedding ceremony?
My fiance' and I have been planning our wedding ceremony for months now, it's will be in October 2010. Now that my fiance' almost finish with officer school for the army, he wants to go ahead and do the legal portion first by going to the justice of the peace. Still having a full wedding next year.
Answer by Meg
my boyfriend and i are in very similar situations, and have contemplated going to the justice of the peace just for legal reasons.
of course, part of me would hate it, feeling like it would ruin the excitement of the ceremony, but we also knew that it wouldn't be like we were married. it was simply for documentation.
so of course you can get married and then have a ceremony. my advice would be just to keep the fact that you are married to yourselves, or to only you and your parents. and then go ahead and celebrate with the ceremony you always wanted!
