For the translations, go to ETS Translations. The lady is awesome! She translated and notarized my and my fiance's birth certificates. The cost was pretty reasonable (90 each), and the translations look great! What I liked the most is that this lady actually guided me with the process. I asked her to translate my birth certificates and passports, and she suggested to contact my WC, as she thought my passports didn't need to be translated. And she was right! She was referred to me by my travel agency, and I know she's been translating for weddings in Mexico for a while. Contact this Helen lady, she's awesome!
And... $75.00 for a stamp? That's a huge ripoff! I found rates from $35.00 to $50.00, but never heard about $75... well, I actually stopped looking for a notary, as the translator did everything for me...

One more thing: Does anyone else think notary publics are kind of a joke!? (And a huge ripoff?!) Seriously. $75 to put your "stamp" on ONE document!? Gimme a break!
