It sure will, HSE can be a real pain but at the end of the day it avoids having to be keeping check on everyone and you will be way more relaxed : x

      Yes - I just phoned her yesterday and I think that is a better way. I feel a lot more at ease now. We are going to sort all the details out this weekend. 

       

      On the legal requirements I heard that if you DID NOT change your name (which I didn't) legally with your first marriage it is likely that you can be considered a single and won't need apostile or translation. I don't think men have to as they (obviously) don't change their name. 

       

      Our location is the beach location which is what we wanted - we are going to pick frutos del mar and since we are probably only having about 20 ppl or under I guess we can select 2 items for each course which is good. The issue is that my parents, in-laws and fiance don't like seafood but I LOVE it and so do most of the others.

       

      Good Luck, Miriam

        Thanks for that - 2 it is then as we believe that we'll likely have about 20 in the end.

        If the bride/groom is divorced and kept married name, then the decree absolute and full birth certicate must be taken to mexico and will need to be legalised and translated in the uk prior to departure. Hope this helps

Also I am a bit worried as the other person who replied said different information. It is just very confusing. I will phone her again tomorrow as I need this to get sorted. It will stress me out which is against the whole reason why we were going to get married there.

        Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee   after trying for the last hour and being on hold for so long I have been able to get through to and talk with Eugenia - godness knows what the phone bill will be like as calling from Scotland.

         

        I feel much more relaxed and this information she gave me will help and hopefully make both you ladies relax too. . . . .  

         

        The Bahia are continually putting brides mind at ease regarding the confusion Travel Agents cause by giving FALSE information regarding having to get birth and divorce documents translated and legalised.

         

        There is NO requirement for any of the groom's documents to be translated or legalised this applies whether he HAS or HAS NOT  been married before.

         

        If the bride has been married before and has reverted back to her maiden name, provided this is the name she travels on and is the name that is on her passport again there is NO requirement for any of the bride's documents to be translated or legalised

         

        The only time translation and legalistion is required is when a bride has divorced but kept her married name (Ive never heard of anyone doing this)

         

        Hope you breathe the sigh of relief that I did.

          It depends if your group is more than 30 people.  More than 30, you get one choice, less than 30 you get two choices off the menu and you have to decide in advance.

          There is only 25 of us, I will have to ask if we can choose a 2nd option.

            Just wanted to add as well a few comments RE: Birth Certificate. I was told by our W/C that I would need to bring by birth certificate and have it translated and legalized because my father and I did not share the same last name. Something to keep in mind if this applies to any of you ladies.
