Marriage Requirements vs. Holidays

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out some other date in May 2009 that might work out for us if our dates (May 15, May 8, or May 14) are truly all booked as it seems they are. It needs to be May as my FH is in school and I won't do any part of hurricane season. Also we (and our guests) need the year to save $$$.

 

We are doing a civil (legal) wedding so we need to be there 4 business days. I'm a little confused ... I know neither weekends nor your day of arrival count, but can your wedding be ON weekday #4?

 

I know I read somewhere on this forum that you can't have the services of the judge for the legal ceremony on weekends (is this true??), so that's really screwing everything up, making Friday weddings almost our only possibility (we're set on doing the legal thing IN MEXICO).

 

Also, I know neither the requirement days nor the civil wedding itself can be on a Mexican holiday. Anyone know what the OFFICIAL Mexican holidays in May are? Cinco de Mayo immediately came to mind but I just read somewhere that it's not official (verification?). Specifically, I was wondering about Memorial Day (May 25, 2009) and whether that was recognized in Mexico.

 

That's a lot of (probably stupid) questions that have most likely already been answered on here but there's so much info to wade thru (you guys are the best) that it's pretty difficult to find specifics!

If it's any help I'm booked for the 15th May and I arrive on the 11th I've been assured by the TA that that is ok. So I think as long as you arrive 4 days before you should be ok

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
