Legal Cermony - RIU Palace

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I am getting married at the RIU Palace and decided that we were going to have a Legal ceremony.

 

Daniela has said the legal ceremony is performed by a judge in Spanish then translated into English... has anyone had this done? Please let me know, Thanks!

Hi, The ceremony has to be in spanish by all means and it is translated to english so everyone can undestand but spanish is a must for all legal weddings.

 

Or you could get married in the U.S. and just have a minister at your wedding and then everything can be in english

I had a legal wedding at Riu, it was simple and just required documents to be sent before hand to the cordinator. You must also get a blood test and fill out the required paperwork. The ceremony is spoken in English, I had a my cousin translate it for into english after the judge spoke. It was nice, it was kind of like my cousin married us

I am also having a legal ceremony - exactly one month from today! I am having one of my oldest friends translate it to English. She is changing some of the words so it won't be a pure translation. She is also adding a reading and possibly something else. They are pretty flexible on the ceremony....with the exception that it must be done in the native language if it is to be legal.

 

Hope that helps. I think it's kind of fun and festive that it'll be in Spanish and then translated!

So, if you are doing a religious ceremony is it considered legal in Mexico? Are the religious and vow renewal ceremonies conducted in English? If anyone knows, that would be great!

I did the legal ceremony and then a religious ceremony all in Mexico. The legal one was done by a judge and we had a translator there. They did the blood work the day before. It was very easy. Our religious ceremony was done in English by a Rabbi we had fly down there. The religious ceremony is not legal in Mexico. You must have the civil/legal ceremony performed by the judge and then get the paperwork sent to the appropriate place for it to be legal here in the U.S.

Easy,

No worries, you just have to bring legal papers, have your blood test done, (normally taken at your room hotel,) and secure the date and time with the judge. I am pretty sure the hotel will give you all the info youâ€ll need, and they will make all the arrangements!

Happy planning!

Hi Jeeny,

You may wanna read this info to clear up all your questions. The vows need to be in Spanish to make it legal, but then translated.

Hope this document answers you questions.

Happy Planning!

Hi Everyone,

 

Thanks so much for the responses..... I got Daniella to send me a copy of what will be said in the ceremony. If anyone wants that, please let me know.

 

I have asked her if we could change some of the wording but she has not gotten back to me. I pretty sure we can, but I will let you know if she says otherwise.

 

 

Thanks!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
