So confused. Can anyone shed some light please? Thanks!
Hmmm...not 100% sure, but from what I was told:
1) birth certificates
3) if you were previously married, the full divorce papers
4) another photo id (driver's license, etc)
As well, if you have friends signing as witnesses, they will need passport and one other photo ID.
I would make photocopies of your birth certificate and passport, so that should they need a copy you can give them the photocopy and not your originals. Also once you are in Mexico they will do a blood test.
Hope that helps. I know the legal wedding certificate is in Spanish. So the resort will have it translated to english for you (which can take up to 4-6 months), and then I think you have to register it locally in the US/Canada to make it legal (otherwise you are just married in Mexico-not at home)
