Cabo Symbolic Ceremony Requirements

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am currently online filling out a form for FI to get a replacement birth certificate.

 

We are planning on having a symbolic ceremony in Cabo, but I can only seem to find the requirements for a Civil/Legal ceremony.

 

Specifically, I need this answered .... do we need to have the long forms of our Canadian birth certificates for a symbolic ceremony?

 

Thanks for your input!

Angela

Here are the options:

 

Birth Certificate (Short form, wallet-sized)

This wallet-sized birth certificate includes basic information, such as name, date and place of birth.

You may only order one copy of a Birth Certificate. If this is the first time you are applying for a birth certificate, select First Birth Certificate. If you are replacing a Birth Certificate, select Replacement Birth Certificate. Birth Certificates are not issued for deceased persons.

 

Certified Copy of Birth Registration (Long form)

This is a Certified Copy of the original birth registration record. You may only order one Certified Copy of a Birth Registration. If this is the first time you are applying for a Certified Copy of the original birth registration, select First Certified Copy. If you are replacing a certified copy of birth registration select Replacement Certified Copy.

Hi Angela

Actually you don't require anything for a symbolic ceremony. We just had a symbolic ceremony at Dreams and they didn't ask for anything except our names :)

Hope that helps!

We also did a symbolic ceremony in Cabo and nothing is required. As a matter of fact, we just had a close friend of ours "officiate". We were married at the courthouse before we left for Mexico. Totally easy!

Question has already been answered, but make sure they have the CORRECT spelling of your names. We also had a symbolic ceremony. My husbands name Chris became Christopher lol. I know it is really easy to get this changed, but I have YET to do it. The certificate was delivered to our room while we were out and about and I didn't realize it was wrong until we got back to NY!

No requirments. Just show up :)

 

if you are getting a BC tho, I would get the long form, not the wallet sized, my hubs has that and a lot of places wont take it and need the actual paper sized one.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
