Yeh thats a great idea. A skype number is only around $6.00 a month and you get a US based number. My husband calls me from it all the time from oversees... saves a lot of money!

I just recieved my contract and found out the same thing today. We wanted to get married by the Catholic Church first in Cancun to have an intimate ceremony, then upon arrival in the United States get married by the civil and have a bigger reception. I sent an email asking them if this was a problem.

now im really confused! below is the email I sent and the reply from the priest in cancun

 

"Good Morning,my partner and I are due to be married at The moon palace on 2nd June 2010 at 3pm for the catholic wedding package. I have been in contact with Wedding coordinator at Moon palace Cristina and she informs me that the wedding will not be legal. We have completed all the pre wedding classes at our church in the UK. Would it be possible for us to have a civil ceremony so that it is legal and then be blessed at the same time. It is very important to my partner and I that god is involved in our wedding"

Dear Clare, Greetings from "sunny Cancun". I spoke with Cristina and perhaps there was a confussion. Do not worry, you can be married here at the Immaculate Concption Chapel. The documents needed are: Baptism certificate (updatwd) Confirmation Certificate Pre-Cana course certificate A letter from your priest giving me permission to marry you outside your parish All the documents original, please Send me those documents and I will be glad to marry you. In Christ,

 

so is it legal?? waiting for confirmation back, ll keep you posted!

As soon as I put on my dress....I felt like a princess! I was holding my head a little higher and didn't want to take it off! It was also the only dress I walked out in and my mom burst into tears. When you try on the "perfect" dress you will just know!

 

Keep your options open...my dress is exact opposite of what I went into the dress process looking for.

 

Good luck in your dress shopping!

We asked the same question, if the civil could be after the catholic when we returned and we were told no, that the civil has to take place and all paperwork presented to have the catholic wedding.

I am concerned with the portion of original documents for baptism and confirmation. Not only will they take a while to dig out, I don't know if I want to risk losing those. Hmmm...

we were lucky, we contacted the church and they were able to give us new certificates etc. we then handed them to the Priest here and he filled out some more paperwork and sent it to the diocese in uk who approved it and then sent it to the diocese in mexico.

all this is so confusing, im sure it states on my paperwork somewhere that you can get married at MP with the catholic ceremony then get married legally again once you get home. thought this was suppose to be the easy option!!rofl.gif

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
