Hello everyone. I have met the girl I really want to spend the rest of my life with. We have decided to get married in the Philippines. She lives in manila but we want to get married in Bohol. Her parent lives in president Garcia island. I understand the marriage requirements and I will be in the Philippines from April 30th to may 25th.I hope that will be enough time. my first thing is an appointment on may 2nd at the USA embassy. I wanted to do it the day before but it is a holiday there. then me and Ana will go to the city hall there to apply for the marriage license. I know we have to wait for ten days. I am hoping we can do all of that in one day May 2nd is a Friday, if not we will have to go to the city hall Monday may 5th
Here are some of my Questions. Is it ten straight days or 10 business days? I book my and Ana trip to Bohol for May 15 to 23rd but I am worry if something goes wrong before while we are applying and waiting for marriage license and we have to wait longer in manila. Also me and Ana plan on just getting married in front of the judge or mayor in Bohol. Do we need to make an appointment? We will only be in Bohol for seven days, Two in Ubay and 5 in president Garcia island. Me and Ana also will like to have a small reception and have to plan that. Maybe I am just worry about something going wrong, but it seems kind of hard to plan for a wedding when you can only be together for a short amount of time and you do not know exactly what day to plan everything.
Anyway I will love to hear how some of you plan your wedding, and any advice that you could give me.
