    Chest x-rays??!! i know about the blood tests but not read anything about this...they are very strict in mexico!

    I understand that shouldnt be drunk when getting married but sure a couple of glasses be okay (hopefully) think would be too nervous completely sober:-)

    we going for site visit in may so will ask wc then but dont want to seem like raging alcoholics!!!

      I know!!! I couldn't believe it when I heard that you need to get chest x-rays done!

      Here's a link to the site that discusses it

        hmm I don't know if I believe that. I've talked to plenty of people who have done the legal part in Mexico and no one has had to do a chest x-ray....

          I'm getting married in Mexico and all we have do to is the blood test and they're even coming to our hotel to give it to us. Nothing has been said about a chest Xray - or drinking before the wedding. Of course, I don't know who would over-do it before the ceremony, but I'm sure there are some wild ones out there.

              No chest xrays for us either. i think it depends on where your getting married.

                HAHA - I might believe Mexico, but Vegas?! That's too funny....anybody ever saw "Friends" where Ross and Rachel got married? I wonder how many times that happened before they made it an official policy :)

                  I plan on having maybe 2 Mimosa's to calm the nerves! I'm sure my FI will have at least one beer.

                  So have a drink in moderation!

                  Just don't do this!!!

                      I am definitely going to be drinking while getting ready for my wedding. I just was MOH for my best friend and had bought 8 bottles of champagne, and had to get my FI to go out and get 6 more bottles for us. The bride had maybe one or 2 glasses to avoid the droopy eye stuff - haha - but the rest of us were drinking a lot. I think it was smart of the bride to stop after a glass or 2. And her pictures turned our beautiful!
