    We did the legal ceremony. We considered doing the symbolic and then a legal ceremony at home, but it would have been more expensive to have a legal ceremony at home. The $300 fee includes all the blood work, paperwork and translation of documents. We paid an additional $14 for a second copy of our marriage certificate. We brought our certified copies of birth certificates, which MP photocopied and immediately returned. They also took copies of passports and tourist cards for us and our 4 witnesses. The blood test was quick and we met a few other couples in the waiting room, so that was nice. We got our marriage certificates by courier about 3 weeks after our wedding.

     

    I haven't gone to change my name yet, so I don't know how that works. I figured that it probably wouldn't be too different having a foreign marriage cert, and we could always renew our vows locally if it becomes an issue.

        Valeria Vera Garcia is our on-site wedding planner .  Any thoughts from you ladies that have been or had worked with her before?  Thanks!

          seasidebride - We were reassigned to Valeria because our original WC had an emergency. She was amazing, so kind and wonderful to deal with. She made sure that everything I had arranged with the original WC went as planned and provided great input for the outstanding decisions. She was available throughout the week for us to bring decorations and make minor changes. Valeria was so helpful throughout the ceremony and directed our guests between the cocktail hour and the dinner reception. She made sure there was a hospitality room nearby the reception location. She stayed with us all day long, even helping to pack up decorations at the end of the night.  I don't think I have any complaints about the service from the MP wedding office. I wish the Miami office had a fraction of their customer service skills.

                  How much was it going to cost you to do it at home?

                    We did both the symbolic and civil ceremonies. They did the legal part first and it was very quick (less than 10 minutes). Then we did the religious ceremony. It was really seamless the way they did it. We did it this way because we both agreed that we wanted only one wedding date (the justice of peace will not do a religious ceremony). We got 4 copies of our marriage certificate. Claudia gave us all of our certified certificates the day before we left. I am having it translated today so that I can change my name with SSA (socail security administration) on Friday.
