Marriage Certificate

Recommended Posts

So I originally wanted to be legally married in Mexico for all the right reasons - and also because I have seen pictures of the wedding license/certificate (my fiance calls it the mexican wedding gift certificate...lol) and I really wanted one - we are no longer doing the legal wedding in Mexico and I was wondering if anyone knew if a symbolic wedding included a symbolic marriage license certificate or if there is a company that you can request one from?

Hmmm,, If I can remember I don't "think" you get a certificate for a religious wedding. But I could be wrong. Maybe some of the WC do something, but I would check with your resort or WC.

Not silly - I want one too! That's a good question - I am going to ask my WC. I want something to say where we had our ceremony, since that will be the date we celebrate as our wedding date.

That's good that you are getting a legal wedding outside Mexico, the whole blood withdrawal in another country really freaks me out. Must it really be done on the morning of your wedding? I hate needles so I could never do it let alone on the morning of the wedding. I hope you find a good alternative for the certificate, I'd love to see one since you called it a gift certificate lol.

Toby...when we applied for our marriage license, along with it came a "souveneir marriage certificate" that can be filled out with the date, time, location, etc. It's for keepsake/display purposes only. Perhaps you will get one of those when you get your license??

Ann, you do get a marriage certificate for your Las Caletas wedding! It says you were married on such and such date, but then at the bottom in small print, it says something about not legally binding, etc...

If I would have actually read the information on the Riu website I would have noticed that yes we do get a non binding non legal marriage (gift) certificate - in spanish...yay!!! Now I am onto a new battle - seems that you cannot do their cheapy package if you have more than 10 people. But, my response is what if i don't want all of the crap that comes in the bigger, more expensive package - oh yeah ladies...there is gonna be a battle. Its bad enough we have to pay for our booze at the AI resort....my attitude... Bring It!!!

    • 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.
