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 !!!
