Thank you! We are leaning towards a pool reception now - I think it will look nicer too with the pools being lit up

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.

Hi I have just had a look through our paperwork and found this,

If either party is divorced: Decree absolute (must carry the court stamp.) If the bride/groom is divorced and kept maiden then a decree absolute must be taken to Mexico, but does not need to be transalted or legalised.

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.

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.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
