    Has anyone gotten their marriage certificate first in the US (gone through the civil ceremony). Do we need to have a Spanish translation of it?

    if you legally get married in the states first, you can skip the whole legal part in mexico and just have a symbolic ceremony.

      Right, you don't need to even bring your US marriage paperwork.

        My daughter and her husband did this. Kept the ceremony stateside "clinical," and they exchanged vows and rings on the beach. That is where the commitment in marriage was made, but they knew everything was in order at home.

        If you need someone to conduct the ceremony in Mexico, try Kiko. He performed a moving ceremony, and our guests thought he had known the bride and groom prior to the ceremont because the service was so personal and warm. I have his email if you're interested.

            Hey Ladies,
            Just a bit of advice-Check the dates on the threads you post to. This one hasn't been touched in over 3 years. The original poster is probably married with children by now, LOL! Quite a few of us did the same thing as newbies I(including me). :-)
