HELP!! Cancun Brides Legal Marriage Documents?
Posted 21 January 2010 - 09:31 PM
1. certified copies of your birth certificates
2. passports and tourist card
3. certified copy of divorce decrees (if applicable)
4. 4 witnesses
While others say that in #1 you have to have your birth certificates legalized by the Consulate of Mexico. Do the resorts take care of this or do I need to do this?
I am second guessing myself now.
I also would like to know if they keep this documentation or do they just make a copy? I don't want to give them my only copy so if they keep it I will request a new one. Help please!

What is worrying me is that is says on the dreams website its not legal in the US until the WC gets the paper work and mails it to our home state which could take 1-4 months.
Hopefully there are other brides out there that have done this and can help us out

Also (if you don't know) I talked with Cecilia a/b writing our own ceremony and that I wanted an officiant who read and spoke English very well b/c I want our guest to understand what's going on. She said it wasn't a problem b/c we're just having a symbolic ceremony BUT with a legal ceremony, the judge performs the ceremony in SPANISH and there is a translator there; just something else to think about with a legal ceremony!

Very contradicting information from multiple brides. I am curious to see how she responds. I sent her our written ceremony script with the legal marriage pieces left out for them to add on as needed from the officiant. I will see what she says and then I would be happy to share with you what we have.

She also said that the officiants are fluent in English and that there shouldn't be an issue with anyone trying to understand them. She did say that the ceremony script I sent her I should try and cut down a little or have a couple people from our group read pieces of it. The officiants tend to like to stick to their legal portions of the ceremony which is understandable. So I think I'll have my FI sister read the sand ceremony and leave the rest to the officiant to complete.
I am glad I asked...this whole legal ceremony seems so much easier than I expected now that I have all the answers...
