Where are you legally marrying?

Recommended Posts

I've heard in order to bypass international red tape, some couples have civil cermonies in the state and symbolic unions abroad. At this point Jay and I are having a civil and legal ceremony in Tulum Mexico. The legal requirements don't seem too bad and our wedding coordinator will assist. Thank goodness we don't need chest x-rays (Some Mexican regions require this)

 

Since I'm divorced, I have to present translated copies of my birth certificate and divorce decree. Has anyone had experiance with the legal marital process in Mexico? Has all gone smoothly?

We're doing it legally in the US just to avoid the hassles of translating documents and all that junk. Dominican Republic is pretty easy, but we jus figure it's just easier to get it done with here.

We decided that we are also doing it legally in the states then go to Cabo for ceremony. In the beginning of all the planning we thought we were going to have the whole thing (legalities and such) in Cabos but then Erik said he didn't want to go 3 days prior to mexico just to do blood work and I don't like needles. Also we didn't want to do all that paper work you have to do.

So we've decided to do legal stuff in CA. and ceremony in Cabos.

Thanks for all the replies. Melissa, did you have to wait for the apostille seal in order to change your name and change over insurance policies and such here in the states?

Different resorts and judges have different rules. Dreams Cabo is pretty laid back. I didn't have to have any documents translated, I just bring the originals and they take it from there...

I am getting married legally here in the states b/c I hate needles and it just seems easier than having everything translated. Plus while we def want a beach wedding, it is very important to us and our families to get married in a Catholic Church so we will have our legal/religious ceremony here in the U.S.
