We are getting married at the palace - were you married in the chapel? Do you have any photos?

Well we changed our plans recently, were were orginally getting married at 3:30, then Italian for dinner, then private hire of the disco..however we then decided we really wanted to do a catamaran trip on our wedding day (its a suprise for all our guests), so we are now getting married at 1pm, with a sunset cruise on a catamaran with drinks at 3:30, then Italian still. Think we are going to pass on the disco though, and just all hang out at the bar - then maybe go when it opens at 11pm to all guests. Im also a bit stuck for favours, want to keep the cost down, think we may get a batch of love hearts and put them in the little organza bags for everyone, I may also buy something over there as a bit limited of how much we can pack! Also about the wedding certificate, they sort it over there - its 270$ to get it translated and legalised.

Michelle we didn´t bother taking our birth certificates with us, cos we were told most definitely we didn´t need them, but then again they don´t weigh anything so maybe slip them in if it gives you peace of mind. nothing needed apostiling, translating etc.

about a month before the wedding the wc sent us a form to fill out by email with details of our parents, and witnesses (and us too!), then when we had the meeting once we were in mexico, we took our two passports and travel cards, and those of our witnesses with us and she toddled off and photocopied them and that was it!

Has anyone heard much about the hairdresser/make up artist at the Palace Mexico? As you can see I have very curly/frizzy hair and I am dreading having my hair done for the day - can't even find anyone who can do it nicely in the UK! LOL I will definitely be looking like Monica!

 

What is Phenergan? I have a 2 yr old traveling with us and I know she will be ok for about the first 20 mins - not sure about the other 10 hrs! LOL

 

 Phenergan is available over the counter and it´s normally used for travel sickness or as an antihistamine, but the marvellous benefit of it is that it makes you fall asleep ( no operating heavy machinery now!) I felt a bit guilty about the thought of using it at first, but i've got two nurse friends with kids and they told me it is exactly what they use. Just make sure you test them with it first to check it doesn´t have the opposite effect, and work with the dosage!

 

 

Oh really? Well i'm in two minds. I hate the thought of taking all our personal stuff out there, passports, birth certs etc.... plus if i do take them and they dont have the apostile stamp legalising them would they be any good anyway? We the WC out there said we only need passports and visa cards i checked with Caribbean Warehouse and they said that Cosmos had confirmed that was the correct info they had at the time too.... i'm sure if it changed they would let me know wouldn't they.... ?

This is the reply from my friend who got married in Mexico

 

 


Yeah we had a Civil service, I have updated my bank, work, and electro roll, doctors and stuff like that but I phoned about updating my passport and they wont accept the Spanish cert. Need to get it translated first which is annoying. You can register your marriage cert too. Iâ€ve not done any of this yet, I have 8 years left on my passport so wont be spending out on updating that for a bit, I havenâ€t tried to update my driving licence yet. Weâ€ve only been married a year next Friday lol, maybe I should get my ass in gear and get it sorted. These are sum links that should tell you what you need to do :o) xxHiya,

I haven´'t looked at the links yet, but will get round to it eventually! I´m not changing my name so i guess it doesn´t really matter that much, i just wondered about when i write my status down as being married on mortgage applications, child benefit applications etc. oh well i'll deal with it and let you all know!

I can't believe how much i have had to catch up on after only two days!

 

Thanks for the info on marriage certificates i was wondering about this.

 

All i have done so far is sorted out 15 people now booked to come which was a bit of a battle. Im hoping for 6 more but we will see.

 

Fingers crossed.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
