Legal marriage before going away (Canadian Brides)
Posted 29 September 2008 - 09:27 PM
just wondering if anyone can give me some direction on this.
We're having a symbolic ceremony but we'd like to get legally married right before we go. We're not making a big fuss over it.....we're just grabbing a witness and keeping it to ourselves.
So my question is, how do you go about doing this. Do you just go to a registries place or court house? and what documents do you need with you?
thanks for your help

Then I just googles marriage commissioners in my area, and we found one that we just went to his house with our 2 witnesses and signed the papers....No formalities, we did have to say a few vows, but instead of smoochin we jus shook on it. That cost $50
the commisioner sent the license away for us. (registered it) We recieved a lil certificate right there, but had to order the "real" one from any registry.
Hope this helps!

What about in case of...gulp..divorce, is it easier to file for one if you are married in your province/country?

It seems to me (though I haven't done a lot of research) that with a Mexican wedding I would definitely get married here first. Now if you were to do that, do you get the bypass all the bloodtests and residency requirements that they have and just get on with the wedding? And (el cheapo here) do you save anything on a wedding package that includes legalization of documents, etc.?

For us, we decided to do everything (including the legal) in Mexico. Our resort only requires us to bring a birth certificate and passport with us. We need to arrive 3 days before the ceremony and have a blood test, which is done by a doctor at the resort (the doctor will come to our hotel room to do the test). The resort will take care of anything else required. Since both of us have been married before, this is actually easier for us then getting married at home and proving the marriage, divorce and name change (to and back). The requirements for a legal marriage are different for each resort and vary by country.

1) I really don't want a foreign Doctor taking my blood, I'm too afraid of people making mistakes.
2) I don't want to stress out down there. We are arriving three days prior to the wedding and our WC told us that shouldn't be an issue. However, I have some friends who got married in Mexico in April and still haven't gotten their documentation from there yet.
We are going to have a legal ceremony here. Nothing fancy, probably get my parents to be our witnesses, and instead of kissing, we are going to shake on it [just like how Mineaux did].
