Cost of legal documents, lab tests, etc?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics!

    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
