  1. Hi brides! Here's some info about the marriage licenses and their validity internationally: Validity Outside of Mexico: "Your Marriage Certificate will be valid world-wide, BUT you should get your certificate 'legalised' in Mexico to ensure it is legally accepted when you get back home. The process is the reverse of getting your Native documentation legalised by the necessary authorities (e.g. Foreign Office) for marriage in Mexico (see below); The registry office in Mexico will tell you where this can be done locally." http://usmarriagelaws.com/search/caribbean/mexico_city/index.shtml http://www.mexicolaw.com/Marriage%20in%20Mexico.htm Though that's specific to Mexico, where we operate, you can find general info here for US citizens getting married elsewhere: https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/abroad/events-and-records/marriage.html Good luck tying the knot!

  3. Hi all! Quite of a topic bump here --but I just want to make sure this information is out on every Blue Lens Caribe post out there: Blue Lens Caribe Photography has been rebranded as WeddingDayStory in Riviera Maya. And who's WeddingDayStory, you might ask. We are a family of wedding photographers & videographers devoted to celebrating the simple romance of weddings in the sun. We have been in business for 10 years now, from Dominican Republic & Costa Rica to Mexico (first in Cabo, now Riviera Maya). So, Blue Lens Caribe has ceased to exist as brand for the last two years. It just got together with WeddingDayStory, but the latter name was the one that reflected who we are the best, so we kept it. Helping our friends out is a big deal for us-so if you have any questions, need any information, or just want to have a quick chat, don't hesitate to reach out to us! On top of the channels that appear on our signature below, you can also choose to schedule a call with us, no strings attached To do so, click here: https://calendly.com/weddingdaystory Happy planning everyone!

  13. A note to all brides thinking about doing this on their weddings --- do it! Your photographer will love you. Although we understand that guests and family usually want to take their own pictures and capture memories of their own during the ceremony, it is the one special moment you have all gathered there to share, so it only makes sense to ask your loved ones to be there. In the moment with you. Make sure to ask your photographer if they can provide you with the service of uploading images to a private, online gallery. What we do is send the couple a link to where the images will be, with the option of having guests sign up to receive an update once the images are posted (which is only 7 to 12 business days after the wedding). That way, everyone can access the ceremony images, share them on Facebook or print them out We hope the unplugged wedding trend is here to stay! This one post that became viral says it very well too: http://www.today.com/style/unplugged-weddings-photographers-anti-phone-rant-goes-viral-t55546
  14. Hi brides! We second @@Wafflesmom's mention of paperless post. I actually have been getting these RSVP's over the e-mail for a friend's wedding this year, and found it extremely convenient. Apart from viewing all necessary information right there, you can send direct messages to the couple and everything gets copied on e-mails. There are many more! Check them out: http://www.bridebox.com/blog/best-rsvp-websites-for-wedding-guests/ Best of luck, everybody!
  15. Hi all!

We have been in business for 10 years now, from Dominican Republic & Costa Rica to Mexico (first in Cabo, now Riviera Maya). So, Blue Lens Caribe has ceased to exist as brand for the last two years. It just got together with WeddingDayStory, but the latter name was the one that reflected who we are the best, so we kept it.
