New.. looking for Mexico destination

Recommended Posts

Hi! My name is Tara and we are looking for a Mexico or any other beach destination really. I was interested in Dreams Cancun, but after finding out we have to arrive 4 business days before the wedding, that option is out.

so anyway, I am here to just find out more info on whats out there. We would like to arrive on Thursday for a Saturday wedding if anyone knows of any places where you can do this. We are looking forward to a wedding date of Jan. 1, 2011. Thanks!

Hi, Tara. I'm also from Houston originally. Just live in Dallas right now. A lot of the gals are getting married at home at the Justice of the Peace before going over to Mexico to get married. My daughter did that as well. Just didn't tell anyone. I'm getting married in Cabo, however, I am going over early to make it legal there. Good luck.

Welcome Tara! You have definitely come to the right place. If you want to get legally married in Mexico all resorts have some sort of minimum stay requirement. A lot of brides actually get legally married at home and have a symbolic wedding at their choice resort.

 

Getting married legally at home saves a lot of time, $ and hassle - most brides just don't tell their guests and dont make a big deal out of the legal home marriage...just an option!

Welcome and congrats! We wanted the same thing...we didn't want to wait so long to get married after we arrive. For us, Jamaica was the best option. Technically, you only need to be there for 24hrs before your ceremony. We're arriving on Saturday, and getting married on Monday. Best of luck!!

Congrats and welcome to the forum, the best way to avoid the 4 day requirement is to do the legal part at home before you leave, it can save some extra money and you don't have to worry about all the paperwork and making sure everything is translated and all that.

Hi Tara,

 

I am getting married at the Barcelo Maya Palace in Riviera Maya, and doing a non-legal ceremony we have to be there 3 days ahead of time. Seems like any resort in Mexico I checked required us to be there 3-4 days in advance. Good luck planning and welcome!

Hi Tara!

 

We are also getting legally married at home after the wedding in Mexico. We chose to do it after because of the paper work/passports that would have to be changed with the name change.

 

I also live in Houston!

 

Congrats & have fun planning!

-Ashley

 

PS we are getting hitched at Moon Palace in Cancun!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
