    I understand that the blood test is done at the resort and it is all very sterile and professional. It ends up not being a very big deal. I hate getting blood drawn - it totally wigs me out, but I am doing it. I dont think it should stop you from anything.

      Me and FI are planning on having a legal ceremony in Mexico also. I agree with KimmyD, it is not going to be a big deal as long as your resort is handling it. FI does not want to get married here and than have symbolic in Mexico.

        It sounds like getting married in Canada after we come back to mexico it easier...

          We're doing it legal there. I'm afraid that if we do it at home first, I'll feel like we're already married.

            Hey - I wasn't too keen on the blood tests either, but decided it's a small price to pay for getting married in such a beautiful location!
            I'd check with the hotel first, like some of the other brides mine's included in the price and the doctor comes to your hotel room - so doesn't sound like too much hassle!

              we just got married legally in mexico a couple weeks ago and it was so easy...i don't know why people think it is such a hassle.

              the resort we stayed at has a doctors office, we went & did the test, paid cash and they gave us a receipt to see if we can get reimbursed with our health insurance plans back home. the whole thing took about 15 minutes if that.

              so simple.

                Thanks for your review. I didn't think it would be a big deal and you confirmed it. It doesn't seem like a hassle compared to all the wedding planning some people are doing with all the DIY projects.

                  I origionally thought this was a big deal, but the more I think about it, it's really not. My coutnry used to do this also, the only thing that is a pain is having to be there so early before the wedding, but, we planned on being there anyways to get everything arranged. From what I hear, you can go to a hospital if you prefer instead of your room.

                    We got married in Feb. and had a legal wedding. Our resort had a medical clinic on the property which was where we had to go to get the blood taken. It was super clean and totally modern. The nurse was great. I've been poked and prodded in Canada butchering both arms before they found my vein, and in Mexico it was quite possibly the best and smoothest I have ever experienced. No reason to worry.

                      Thanks for the reassurance. We really want to have a legal ceremony down in Mexico, not legal here first. I was starting to have second thoughts because it seems that the majority don't do legal. Thanks for this thread!
