If you get it translated and then post it to the GOR they will have a record of your marriage should anyone request it and also can provided a copy of the certificate; because if you ever needed another copy you would need to contact the authourities in Mexico - which i would imagine would be a nightmare!
Hey Josie, Thank you very much, We went to see our TA today and she didnt know, Were on hold to the Wedding dept for an hour then we had to leave the shop. Its just you read that much info online its hard to remember whats right and whats wrong....

Thanks again

Even the Mexican consulate website says 3 business day. I arrived on a Sat and got married on the Thurs. I would ask your TA where they're getting that info from and let them know that the WC states only 3 days are required. I see you're from Montreal. If you need any help from a fellow Canadian just PM me!
Hi! It's always nice to see a fellow Canadian on here. :)
Thanks for the info... it makes me feel better!!

I browsed through the threads and some people say 3 days, orthers say 4. What is right?

I am getting married at the Grand Palladium and the WC sent me a document that says we need to be there 3 days in advance. We are planning to arrive on a Sunday and get married on a Thursday. But my Travel Agent is telling me we need to be there 4 days prior to our wedding day.

HELP!

Hello! I am not sure if you have this all figured out yet or not. I was just married at the Grand Palladium last Wednesday and we went with the 3 business days. We did our license and blood work on Friday and the ceremony was Wednesday. So if you are there on Sunday the Thursday wedding would be fine as that would give you 3 business days like we had. Best of luck planning!

I think all of the resorts have their own rules. When I was looking I saw a lot require three days and some require four. Since they are all at least three days I guess that's what Mexico requires for it to be legal and some resorts just want to extend it for whatever reason. The resort I'm getting married at requires four days and the day of arrival doesn't count.

I'd go with that the WC told you. They do this all the time and you just have to trust it will all work out. A lot of people are put off by all the technicalities and just do the legal stuff here. But if it's important to you for that to be your legal ceremony then don't give in. Trust the professionals and everything will be fine. I've looked into this a lot since I'm doing the legal ceremony there too and haven't found anyone that has had issues after everything was all said and done.

    • Hello would-be-brides! I'm Gaurav, and I've been shooting weddings for over 5 years for my wedding photography business - I Don't Say Cheese. I specialize in candid photography and take great pleasure capturing the story and the essence of love that couples share. I've been shooting around India and have done many destination weddings. However, I would LOVE to cover some international weddings and build my portfolio. It doesn't hurt that I absolutely adore traveling! Back home I charge $3500 for a day's shoot but I'm offering my services for FREE for a chance to shoot your wedding.  You can see my work on my website and on my instagram page. I'd love to discuss the possibilities with you so feel free to reply here or contact me through the website/instagram. You can see a sample set of a wedding I recently shot in Kerela, India here. Wishing you lots of love and luck for your big day!  
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
