Register in Canada and ceremony & reception in Riviera Maya

Recommended Posts

hello, does anyone know if we register in city hall in my home town and have another ceremony and reception in Mexico, do I still need to get all the document translated to Spanish and notarized?

 

Thanks,

rtswan

It would be a symbolic ceremony if you already got married in Canada. You would not need to get any translations or blood work for that.

Thanks Bianca and Courtney, that's a relief that I don't have to worry about all the paperwork. Do I have to tell the resort wedding coordinator beforehand? and will I still get a judge and fake sign it or I would get a fake judge?

Thanks again :)

For us, we did not need to. I hadn't even thought of bringing it. I don't see why you would need one for a symbolic ceremony, but check with your WC just in case.

I think the only time I've seen this required is when you're paying less for a symbolic package - but I don't know if that is in Mexico. It may have been in some other resorts in DR or something when I was looking earlier on.

For us it doesn't matter. Judge (legal) or Minister (symbolic) it costs the same for our package, so they don't care if we are married yet or not. That means we could wait til we get back to Canada to marry legally.

We decided a few weeks back to cancel our judge and ask for the minister instead, and to do the legal thing at home because of the hassle and cost of getting everything notarized and also, more importnatly, the fact that we didn't like the judge's ceremony and it's in Spanish. This way we can give the minister whatever ceremony we want and he will perform it in English!elefant.gif

    • 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.
