    Not sure if you are in the US or Canada or where you are at, but I can tell you how it worked in Canada for me. We got legally married there back on November 18, 2010. It took about 3 months to get the certificate in the mail. It has to be translated to english by a certified translator. If you happen to live in BC Canada the website for transators is stibc.org.

     

    You will need the translated copy to get everything changed over. I thought that when I received the certificate it would have already been translated. I think it cost $50 to get the document translated. All of the other legal paperwork as far as getting married at the resort is pretty straight forward, and they take care of it all.

     

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    For those of you who got married legally there... Were you able to get the marriage certificate/license translated into english? If so, did it cost you money and how much? Were they able to do it in Mexic? Did you have to get it done at home? I'm confused becase I was told if I paid $20 USD, they would translate the certificate into english after its apostilled etc. But now I'm being told they do not do that at all... Well how on earth am I going to be able to change my name when I get it in the mail if its in spanish?? I heard it's very difficult to change your name when a certificate is in another language... Somebody please clarify what it is I have to do or how much it'll cost me lol pleeeeaassse !!!

        Is this the same if you're only doing a symbolic ceremony?

          The ceremony is done in spanish by the judge(i think that's what they are called..) and someone translates it. For us the wedding coordinators assistant did the translating. At the end you get a written copy of it in english to keep. You will get this when you meet up with your coordinator a day or so after the wedding.

            I had the symbolic ceremony. It's all in English and the signing part only took about 2 minutes (bride, groom, 2 witnesses signing one "certificate") so I only needed one song.

              With the symbolic ceremony, did it look like a legal ceremony, we are thinking about legally getting married here but we don't want our guests to know about it.

               

              Also is the signing done during the ceremony? I have never seen that before

                I just got booked for my wedding in March 2012!!! Yay :)   But anyway, I am doing the symbolic ceremony as well and was wondering if you could elaborate on what exactly they inlcude/do in the cermony. Paloma said something about confirming with a minister so I am interested in what they say during the ceremony. And what exactly are you signing if its just symbolic?

                      It depends on which airline you are travelling with Jemma.....I travelled with Thomson from the Uk & took my dress on with me.  It had to be in a box that complied with their hand luggage sizes, I thought my dress would never fit in it but the shop packed it & it did!!  I know some airlines let you carry it on just in the bag & then they hang it in the staff cabin.  Best thing to do is call the airline you are travelling with & see what they say :)
