Hi Mexicobird,

 

If you look on the previous page there is a post by Elissa where she says that she did not need all her paperwork. You must be very excited as youre only a few days away. Hope you can do a review on your return and look forward to hearing all about it.

@mexicobird..... we didn't even show our birth certificates as my husband didn't even bring one, all you need is the blood test, and they didn't even get our results back, they really don't care , they photocopied our passports, got 4 witnesses signatures, extra 120$ for the judge and that's it, don't waste your time or money on that stuff..... we decided mid-monday to legalize it , and got legally married on wednesday

Elissa is right. As long as you have your passport and haven't been married before, you're good to go. I stressed out about the birth certificate thing a few days before I left after reading about it on this website. Don't fret! I will say, though, to bring USD cash (they don't accept credit cards... Aracely told me they did, though) to pay the medical office for your blood tests. We brought pesos thinking that there was no way they'd take USD after the new law enactment thingy, and the peso exchange rate they gave us was ridiculous. (Front desk will not give you USDs either, only pesos or CDN.) The guy at the medical office actually asked for USD. 

 

Just as a note, out minister fee was $5,200 pesos (about $430 CDN) while another gals on here was $4,500. Not sure how Elissa got away with just $120... lucky! You might want to get it from Aracely in writing before you arrive...

Thank you all for your replys. I phoned and spoke to Aracelys assistant yesterday while writing this post and she also confirmed that we didn't need to waste our money getting our birth certificates translated all we would need is our passports, tourist cards from the airport and passports for our witnesses. I feel alot calmer knowing all this.

Yes will definately update a post when I get back. We leave the UK on the 22nd May, getting very excited now and on count down. I have stayed at the GS previously 3 years ago so it will be lovely to go back.

 

Thanks again

 

Michelle

Did you book your wedding through the hotel or your travel agent? as i have been told that if it is booked through the hotel then the minister fees are included and you only have to pay the 120usd for legalization.  If booked through your agent both minister an legalization has to be paid for making it a lot more expensive.  Does anyone know if this is correct?  I did ask Aracely's assistant but found it quite difficult to understand her.  19 days to go till we fly out there.  :)
