I'm right where you are. We pick up our documents tomorrow. Here's what I've gathered, it's not as easy as it use to be going into amphur to register marriage. We are gonna check out a few amphur in Bangkok to get an idea what we are up against as far as time goes, witnesses  and my girl says we need a human translator, but I don't see that anywhere.

I too have to make a visa run 27th February to cover the rest of my stay.

I'm seeing all kinds of mixed comments on each amphur office and how each one works.

I'm hoping they just give us a date to come back and it's that easy.

I'll comment tomorrow what I found out, not sure if your in bangkok.

And your visa status has no bearing on it. That much I'm sure of.

Thanks for reply, I use a agent for the mfa process and our documents should also be ready today or tmorrow. Info from the agent is that we need interpreter(her) and witness(her) but this seems to vary alot from different amphurs. I have a friend who did it at don muang and they didnt need anything of above. I will try not use the agent and head to amphur prakhanong today and ask what they need for the registration and can report back after, do you have some up to date info about another amphur? Im in bangkok also.

Yes, I as well. The translation and M.F.A has been done but the problem is finding a Amphoe. Up here in CM. all seem to have queue times some 6 wks. others require the witnesses to live in that Amphoe and my paperwork from my Embassy is valid for only 30 days after that start the process and the costs and time all over again.
