Getting your license translated at home instead of Mexico?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I am sure this has been asked before. I have searched and can't really find any answer.

 

Has anyone took their marriage license home and had it translated once home instead of letting it be done in Mexico? If so, where did you go and how long and much did it cost?? We are getting married at Dreams Tulum on July 16th and were told it would be 120.00 and 3-4 months for translation if done through the resort. 3-4 months is a long time to wait especially we just bought a house in another state. I don't want to have to chnage my drivers license and all for the location then have to go back in a few months for the name. I would rather get it done sooner than later. Any information would be helpful!!

 

Thank so much!!

 

Nicole

I can't help you out with that info, but wanted to share with you what we are doing. We are getting legally married in the US a few days before we go to Mexico. We are having a symbolic ceremony in Mexico and then when we get home-we are done and ready to change names on everything. I chose to do this because of the cost, wait, and translation of getting married in Mexico. Good Luck to you. :)

The best thing to do is to have a legal ceremony at the courthouse right before you leave for your wedding. This way you'll know everything is in order in states. There are just too many things that can go wrong with a license in another country, and people can take advantage of you.

 

Make the legal ceremony "clinical," and save your meaningful vows and ring exchange for your destination site.

We were given a certificate in mexico, and we were supposed to get mailed the 'legal' one (it has a sealed stamp on the back' mailed to us in about two months. I was able to use the 'non legal' (I didn't say anything) to change everything here in BC. I did have to get it translated to change my drivers lisence and it cost 70 dollars and three days to do it by a translator recommended by ICBC. Good luck!

    • 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.
