      Your marriage is legal in Canada.

      All you have to do is wait for your marriage certificate to come (they have to register it in an international database so this takes awial....5 months about). When you sign papers int he ceremony in Cuba, there just isn't one - there are several. I swear my hand started cramping. But its so that its legal anywhere.

      Once your marriage certificate comes, most places will accept it. And if they dont, its only becasue its in Spanish so you simply have to get it translated. Mine was accepted everywhere, including the banks.

      You'll just have to keep your maiden name for awial until you get your certificate.

        Thanks so much! That is very helpful. I was worried we would have to get legally married here too.

        And congrats on your recent marriage!

            I too live in a small town, the 'unofficial' certificate i left with was enough to change my DL and banking info.... I still have to get to the OHIP office for my health card...

            it was really easy!

              Awesome, thanks!! The cuban embassy emailed me and said that since we are both singles, never married before, all we need is our valid passports! It seems way too easy!

                Yep... pretty much

                You'll need to send copies of

                -grooms passport
                - brides passport
                - witnesses (2) non blood related passports
                - grooms birth cert
                - brides birth cert

                and fill in the forms provided by your resort... all the forms and the above copies are faxed to your resort 3 weeks before departure... your WC will take care of everything else!

                  do you know if all resorts give you an unofficial wedding certificate? Im going to Blau.. so i dunno if you would know but if they do then that should be pretty easy to get things changed over....

                  All my life, I prayed for someone like you... and I thank God that I finally found you!

                      Yep.... when you leave Cuba, you'll have the un-official copy with you. I am still waiting on my 'offiical' one.
