We are Canadians, anyone else have to get an Apostilles to marry in Cancun? HELP

Recommended Posts

Anyone wanting to marry in mexcio needs to have the Apostilles Creed. It makes bringing the documents to your country easier. Some people find that their wedding is not legal in their counrty. This supposedly makes the transition easy.

 

It is $500 though which I think is a great way for them to make more money since destination weddings are so popular. sad.gif

As lolo said, an apostille is a stamp on your Mexican marriage certificate that certifies you are legally married. When you bring back the marriage certificate to Canada, it is considered a legal document that you may use to change your last name with (if you wish to do so) as well as other things, such as a driver's license, etc. Some resorts include the apostil charge in their wedding package fees, for instance, the Iberostar includes the apostil charge in their pricing. I hope this helps!

Hi, I just want to thank for the information, we have finally got all this legal stuff under control I hope. We made the mistake of talking to to many consulates and they all had conflicting information for us. My daughters fiance is from Manitoba and we are from Alberta so the provinces all require different documents, but in actality all they need to do is get copies of their long birth cert and have them notarized and then send them to the mexican consulate in Calgary and have them translated. So hopefully we have it under control. Hope this helps others. And thanks again to all of you for the help, we needed it lol....everyone take care and hope you all have the weddings of your dreams.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
