I just got back from speaking with a new travel agent, my FI and I decided on Dreams Tulum!!! While we were talking with the TA he said that we needed to be in country 4 buisness days prior to the wedding but another TA said we only had to be there 48 hours! This is causing scheduling issues and some stress. Does anyone know exactly how long we need to be in Mexico before we get married? I need to figure this out quickly becuse Dreams is booking up fast!

To do a legal wedding, Dreams Resorts requires you to be there 4 days in advance. The country of Mexico only requires 2 days I think. You have to do blood work and apostile documents for the legal ceremony so some people get legaly married in their hometown and do a symbolic ceremony at their resort. That is one way around the 4 day policy. They still want you there a couple days in advance to go over details tho. I need to be at Dreams Puerto Aventuras on a Wednesday for my Saturday wedding.

I was wondering but this really puts a bit of a issue with some of my guests! Also it has to be business days so my FI might stay 2 weeks so we get a real honeymoon instead of just coming straight back!? I hope I am relaxed all those days were there. or maybe will will just do the courthouse thing and then do the religious down there. That really sounds much eaiser! Thank you for your replies!

It sounds like it is different with different resorts-- but for us, we were legally married in Mexico at El Dorado Royale resort-- we got there on Tues and got married on Friday. Most of our guests arrived Wed and stayed until Sunday.

 

Good luck! :)

Just a thought, but the courthouse thing may make everyting in your lives (like name changes, insurance beneficiary changes, etc.) a whole lot easier. Plus, you don't have to get a needle stick when you get to Mexico.

 

You can, of course do the legal thing when you get back if you don't want it to pre-date your religious ceremony.

I get to Dreams Cancun on the Monday and get married on the Friday and apparently thats ok. I think it is mainly for the bloodwork turnaround.

 

And as far as I've been told its only you and your witnesses that need to be there 4 days before anyone else in the group can go when they want

Dreams Tulum does require 4 days (not counting arrival but counting your wedding day, although in my case I convinced them to count my arrival day, otherwise I would have had to get married the night before leaving since all vacation packages from canada are exactly one week, and weekends don't count in the 4 days).

 

One other DT bride has mentioned in the other big thread that she is getting married after only 2 days, but she is the only one out of the large number of us who was successful with this.

 

So if it's important to you, it wouldn't hurt to try pushing for just the 2 days.

Well everything is moving along! We talked with a travel agent that just did a destination wedding at Tulum! smile123.gifThey only have 3 days left in May for weddings!! So that kinda picked out our wedding day but thats ok. Its finally nice to have a day picked. Considering were getting married on the 26 and that will be our 4 day including the arrival day. I was wondering if we just got married at the court house and then did a renewal down there if its less hassel with the paperwork and the blood tests and if you could get out of the 4 day thing? If not its not a big deal things are finally starting to move along!!

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
