New.. looking for Mexico destination

Recommended Posts

Hi there! If you're looking to get legally married in Mexico you MUST be there 4 business days prior to the ceremony. Unfortunately that's not a resort requirement, it's a government one! Like the other girls said, if your dates are firm for Mexico, do the legal part at home so you can just show up and have fun without worrying about paperwork, blood tests and all the other stuff!

 

We're having our symbolic ceremony wedding at the Gran Bahia Principe Coba in the Mayan Riviera.

Hi Tara, congrats on your engagement and welcome to the forum. We have many brides on here that has or will be married in Dreams Cancun, so I'm sure their threads will come in handing during your planning process.

I believe the 4 days is a Mexico law. No matter where you go in Mexico it will be the 4 days. I could be wrong. That is only if you want a legal ceremony as well. If you just want to do the vows and not legalize it in Mexico you don't have to be down there 4 days. I am getting married at Dreams in June and cannot wait. I have heard a lot of great things about the resort.

Hi Tara!

 

We too are getting legally married at home and not telling anyone. We are getting married at the Moon Palace in Cancun....and we still had to be there 3 days prior to our wedding. So we fly in on Tuesday and get married Saturday. We could have flown in Wednesday though!

 

Good luck!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
