    ugh! that is frustrating! if I can make your weekend any better, I will say dont be too stressed...the only two things that you absolutely must have booked/done before you get to Mexico is the places you want your events to be held at and your appointments at the salon for the day of your wedding....seriously EVERYTHING else can be done when you get there and meet with your coordinator (whoever it is)...this comes from the bride who had binders and was overly anal, organized and stressed about everything...once i got down there and met withYazmin, all my worries were put to ease...they are so professional about it all, and they do 3-4 weddings a day, so they really do know what they are doing...so try not to stress too much...have a great weekend!

        Hey girls!! For the ladies who did a civil ceremony, how did the marriage certificate details work out?  I just got a "Name Change Kit" from a friend of mine who recently got married, and its making me nervous as far as how I'm going to get all of these certified copies of the marriage certificate. I don't know if I have to get these in Mexico or if I can get certified copies here in the states??  I also heard that a lot of places make you have them translated before they will be accepted.  Did any of you have to go through any of this?  Does it take long to receive your marriage certificate? (they give you a copy and mail the certified copy right!?!)  Ahh!! So confused by all of this!?!?

          Hey Jess! I was so worried about all of this too b/c everyone says you will have such a hard time with it.  We paid the resort to have copies translated in English (i think we got 3 of them) and we also got the certified copies in Spanish.  It actually turned out to be so easy, I live in NJ, not sure how PA works but this is what I did...I wound up not even using the translated in English copies.  I took the certified Spanish copy with me to DMV and to Social Security, showed both of them the paperwork and thats it, they were able to give me my new license and new social security card with my new last name...After you have those two things thats all you really need to change your name everywhere else...I would carry a copy of your marriage certificate with you though the first month b/c some places did ask to see it.  Its funny but nobody really said anything about it being in Spanish...I guess b/c the names were all in English so it was pretty easy to understand.  If you have any other questions let me know :)

            Sorry I can't help.  I'm taking the easier route and doing all the paperwork here first.  Hopefully someone can help you out.  I know there are some other threads on this that I ran across.

              Nicole, thanks SO much!!  That helps a lot.  I started looking around the forum first and was seeing some people complaining about their DMV and SS offices not taking the spanish version, but I will ask them for a few copies in English like you did just in case!  Did you get your certified copy right away or did they mail it to you?

                  I don´t know Cristina but my original wedding coordinator was Wilma, then got switched to Lorena 2 months before the wedding and then got switched to Edith literally the day I was traveling to ASP for my wedding! It stressed me out at first but Edith ended up being absolutely wonderful. Everyone at the resort was amazing on our wedding day!! The only advice I have about this is to definitely print out everything and bring it. Lorena told me my new wedding coordinator would have everything I had decided on, and when I met with her, she had none of it. Luckily I had it all on email. It´s hard to say don´t stress but really, try not to. ASP/ACP is the most fabulous place to have your wedding!!

                   

                  I´m on my honeymoon this week at a different resort so I will post a review soon after I get back!!
