Wedding in Mexico?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone! I am recently engaged and was thinking of doing the whole 'wedding on the beach' thing in Mexico. Does anyone have any recommendations for good spots?

 

Also, what are the legal requirements for getting married in a foreign country? We don't have a firm date, but were thinking about some time in November.

 

Any advice would be appreciated!

Hello Andrew and welcome to the forum. Where in Mexico are you thinking about getting married?

 

In order to have a legal wedding in Mexico, you'll need to be there 3 days before your wedding, have a blood test done and have at least 4 people to witness your wedding (usually not a problem) Also depending on your state law, you may be required to have your marriage license certified and translated into English. It sounds like a lot, but I did a legal wedding and IMO It was worth it.

Welcome and congrats. November is sneaking up! I can't believe how many newbie posts I've seen that are looking for a November 09 wedding. Check out the thread for November that's going to count down with us.

Hello Andrew,

We were just married in Tulum, Mexico. It's about two hours south of Cancun, so you get the warm water of the Carribean, but on a pristine beach since you are far away from the resorts. You can get legally married in Mexico, as Tammy posted, you just have to register your marriage certificate in your home state. IMO though, I didn't think it was worth it. The AZ laws are rather lax. We were able to have our friend be an officiant and we were all able to sign the legal document when we were home, making it legal in the states. I don't know what the laws in Denver are though. BTW - my photographer is in Denver and does amazing work, in case you are looking for someone.
