getting married in PI

Hello ALL!

I was just wondering how things would be when we get married at PI.

I'm already married here but hubby wants to have a wedding way back in Cebu so that my family could attend.

And so that both his family and my family could meet in person.

Now, with the wedding dates, we plan on going there around April.

So, is it gonna be legal? If it is, we would be confused with the dates especially celebrating wedding anniversaries.

Or do I need to report my marriage here first?

So that it would be like a renewal of vows lang?

Can anybody give me any idea on what to do? Do we need to attend seminars and such?

Hope to hear any replies to those who got married here and at PI.

Thank you!

wedding in church... i think this will fall under renewal of vows only.

ask your relatives to seek the local parish or wherever church you plan to do the wedding again.

they'd know what to do.

good luck!
