    Hi everyone.
    I have done a ton of searching on this site and the internet and can't seem to find out what it costs to get the legal documents, judge, lab tests, translator for the ceremony, document filing, and all of that for a civil ceremony in Cabo. We don't want to get legally married in the US first (even though it would be easier). Does anyone know how much all of these things cost if you don't use a local wedding planner to help you? Thanks for your help!

        From what I've been able to research so far, if you are getting married at an AI, the cost and documentation requirements will vary by resort. Sorry, I can't really help with anything else. Good luck!

          Hi - if you get married at a hotel or AI, usually they will quote you a fee for the legal ceremony if you request one. I was quoted $600 for civil ceremony with judge and $150 for blood tests, so $750 total. I don't need a translator though - using a friend.
