You also sign a certificate, so even though it's not legal- you are still getting married that day, on the beach! Then you choose what day you celebrate your anniversary on.

My husband and I got married legally in Canada, by a judge in front of my mom in her nursing home(due to her condition she can't travel-nor does she remember half the time that I'm her daughter, let alone married). We really didn't make it a big deal, just a legal step that we had to do. And that was on Dec 4.

But to us, our wedding was in Mexico on Jan 24, surrounded by all of our guests and dressed in our wedding attire. That's our wedding day, and our anniversary! We made that the magically day we had always dreamt of. Hope that story helps!

 

Like murmel, we also did a very quick "legal thing" in Canada before leaving for Mexico.  That event barely registers for us because it was just a check on the things to do list before actually being "married."  This didn't make our wedding any less special.  We will always celebrate our anniversary on the day we got married in Mexico and exchanged our true heartfelt vows to one another.

    We plan to get legally married in Chicago before we leave for our 'real' wedding. We have both been divorced and according to what I have read, to be legally married in Mexico, we need to send certified copies of our divorce papers to Mexico to be translated officially at a cost of $10-20/ page. Therefore, we will go to Cook County Court House a week or so before we leave and sign the marriage papers in front of a judge. Our wedding and anniversary date will be when we say our vows to each other in front of family, friends and God in Mexico.

                  Can anyone give a suggestion on how much cash we should bring? We'll be there 10 days and are doing two excusions plus I'll probably go do a market shopping day.

                   

                  My concern is the unknown setup fee.

                   

                  Does anyone have a preference for PDC or Cancun for shopping?

                   

                  Also, I'm being told now that there's no longer a resort shuttle to PDC or Cancun in the afternoons. Can anyone confirm this? The quotes I'm getting for a private van are insanity.
