My fiance and I are getting married in May of this year. For personal reasons, we were weighing the idea of having a court marraige the day BEFORE our wedding, and then having his dad do the vows for us at the actual wedding and reception. His dad happens to be a pastor, (an unordained pastor) so it would be nice if he could do our vows.
We aren't extremely worried about having our anniversary be the day before our wedding, however I would like some advice, or your opinions and thoughts on this.
We will still have a full wedding, with wedding dress, ceremony, reception. The only difference is we will ALREADY be married as of the day before.
Have you or anyone you known ever done this same thing? Why should, or shouldn't we do this?
Is this a good idea?
