Hello fellow Puerto Vallarta Brides!! I am getting married this June at Le Kliff. Well we plan on doing a spiritual wedding at Puerto Vallarta and applying for a marriage certificate here in the states to save the hassel of blook work and expense abroad. We cant figure out if we should go to the courthouse before or after our wedding. We both agree that our real wedding is on June 12th, but its confusing because if we go to the court house like a month before we will technically be married for a whole month. I feel it may take away from the special day doing it before. AGGHH anyway just wanted to get some input from fellow destination brides. Wondering how you'all are doing it. In the end I know its up to us.

We are doing the same thing, getting married at home first. We are having a JP come to our house the night before we leave to mexicoFeb 27. Our legal ceremony will be 4 days before our symbolic wedding, March 3. We are not telling anyone except our parents( so they can be present) We don't want to take any significance of our "wedding day" away by telling everyone we are legally married.

We wanted to do it before so our 2 dates are close. We will celebrate March 3 as our wedding day.


Good luck on deciding!

We are doing our legal paperwork before we leave for PV. We arent telling anyone when the date is(we really dont know when anyway right now). When we have the ceremony in PV it will be the "real" ceremony before our friends and family.

    • 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. 
    • 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.
