1. Need to take a Pre-Cana Class. In Chicago, were we live, they offer one day classes from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm on Saturdays, at certain locations.
2. Need the contact information of the Priest performing the ceremony in Mexico, so our Priest can send the necessary documents.
3. Need recent copies (within 6 months) of our Batism certificates (this is a pain for me as I was Batised in Austria).
According to the hotels that perform Catholic Weddings (Iberostar Paradiso del Mar, and Barcelo), the necessary documents we need to send to the Priest in Mexico, are the same ones our local parish requires.... I still need to follow up on this and make sure. Our Priest also needs to send a letter of recommondation stating that we performed all of the necessary requirements for marriage.
As far as legality, we may just get married legally here at city hall and do the religious ceremony in mexico.
If you have any questions let me know!!
