catholic ceremony in PV

Recommended Posts

Hmm I am not sure about that one, I think you could get married by a priest if you are not in a church as long as you don't want a full mass. The one thing I know is that you have to be a baptized christian to have a catholic ceremony with your catholic FI. Maybe have him ask his parish priest and you can bring him with? Good luck let me know how it goes.

 

Oh and I love your wedding date! How fun!

you actually don't...you can get an exception from your local Priest to marry a non Catholic and you are okay...at least in PV.

That is good to know! I'm not baptised and don't plan to be. Also, I don't think that is the case even in the US. My brother married a catholic in a catholic church and didn't have to be baptised...he just had to do the marriage classes beforehand.

We definitely don't want a full mass...so it looks like it just might be an option for us outside the church!

For those of you who have done it, how difficult is the process to have a legal catholic ceremony? I heard something about how you must arrive 4 business days before??

The legal ceremony is different than the catholic ceremony. In Mexico to get married legally you have to arrive early get blood tests ( I think) and translate all your documents- there might be more you have to do too.

But you can just have the church ceremony in Mexico and then have the legal ceremony before or after back home - that is what we are doing so we don't have to deal with all that. We are planning on going to the courthouse before the wedding.

Hope that helps!

Thanks so much! That is helpful! I just figured you had to do the legal and catholic portion in Mexico, or both in the US. It's so odd. Thanks again!

    • 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?
