Info. on Civil Ceremony (legal) Breakdown in PV

Recommended Posts

We were just going to do more of a symbolic ceremony in PV and run down to the court house literally right before we leave, but I'm starting to feel that if everyone travels to PV, that it would be more special to have the actual wedding legal there....My FI doesn't want to bother with it down there, but it seems pretty easy, and Dreams takes care of a lot of it I think. The only other thing is my friend said it was pretty expensive....do you have any info on the cost in PV?

Thanks for the info!

I spoke with WC at Dreams, and she mentioned that the overall cost-- bloodwork, paper work, processing fees, etc. totals $350 usd.

 

Rebeca also mentioned that this takes care of everything! The judges "assistant" will pick us up right at the resort, and take us wherever we need to go to get everything finalized during the "four days prior to ceremony date."

 

Let me know if you want more info, and I can pass along my correspondence.

 

Cheers!

yep, that's what my friend told me. It seems pretty easy too & We'll be there four days early already so....

We were going to have our best friend be the "officiant" during the wedding because he can really make the ceremony awesome since he knows both of us so well. I'm assuming the judge would do the legal "stuff" and then I'm wondering if our friend could still say a few things to add etc...

I thought I read somewhere that Dreams would charge extra for that though....which I think would be silly.

Yeah, that would be really silly! That's sooo fun, though, that your friend can help out with the actual ceremony! I'd get in contact with Rebeca and ask her the specifics, she seemed very well informed and I'm sure could clarify the details for you. Let me know how it goes, I'm curious to see how "flexible" they are...

We decided to do the legal thing here in Chicago. I thought it might take away from the big day, but no one really needs to know. It was $35 for the marriage license and it isn't actually official until your officiant signs it and you mail/bring it back to the court house. It just has to be nullified w/in 60 days of applying for the certificate (that's Illinois law...not sure about other states). I just didn't want to have to worry about any of the bloodwork, etc. when we got down there :)

Thanks Brittany, I like your thinking. It sounds like our marriage license laws sound about the same. I'm thinking we will run down to the courthouse as close as possible to us leaving for PV, not tell anyone, (which will be hard), and just announce it at the ceremony in PV.

No problem! It is really hard not to tell anyone...and we did slip and tell a few people, but I keep reminding myself that it isn't official until the officiant signs it :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
