Legal Ceremony????

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be legally married in Mexico. From what I understand, you need to be in Mexico a few days prior, you need to have blood tests done and only a judge can legally marry you. The legal ceremony is performed in Spanish, so there is a translater. The legal ceremony is usually done before the civil/religous ceremony.

 

If you decide to get legally married in Mexico, I would strongly advise you to use a WC, who would be able to coordinate everything for you.

 

Hope this helps.

Yes, I strongly agree that if you plan to legally wed in Mexico to have your WC handle everything, just to ensure you don't spend those pre-wedding days running around alone trying to handle any problems that may arise.

 

I thought hard about this and opted to legally wed in the U.S. in advance just because I didn't want to hassle with the tests and paperwork once I got to Mexico. If you're up for it, I think it is awesome though!!

We thought we'd be doing this, but FI doesn't want to deal with it at all (we're getting legally married in Hawaii on our honeymoom right after we leave Mexico). But I think the requirements differ depending on what city and/or state you're getting married in - and possibly even where (what resort) you get married at.

 

A legal ceremony was not even an option for me at Las Caletas - I would have had to do it in PV before (or after). Given that our actual ceremony wasn't going to be the "real" thing, we just decided not to bother.

We're getting married at home before we leave too. Its just one less thing to worry about going wrong and there are fees involved in every part of it, so to us it was just better to do it here before leaving. We leave on a Tuesday so I'm going to see if we can do it on Monday before we leave, I just have to make sure I'll have all the paperwork we need to go.

We are getting legally married in CR. We hired a lawyer to do all the translating so that it will be valid in the US. If that doesn't work then we will just get married here in Cali at the court house. It is all the same to 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.
    • 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?
