    Im very confused about the legal fees for a wedding at Dreams Tulum. It says in all the packages (even the free one) that services of Justice of the Peace are included but then under customized wedding services it says its $600 for the services of a judge(paperwork, judge, spanish marraige license ect.) Is this included in all the packages or do i need to add it on? SOrry if this sounds like a stupid question but im just not sure because everyone on the forum says how much more expensive it is to do a Legal wedding, so its making me think this $600 is an extra fee. Thanks for your help guys!!!

      My daughter was married in Mexico last month, and for the very reasons you've cited here, they opted to do a legal, "clinical" ceremony at home and a meaningful ceremony in front of family and friends on the beach. The beach is where the commitment in marriage was made, and that is where rings and vows were exchanged. It was our understanding that Mexico requires a separate legal procedure outside of the marriage ceremony, especially if you want a religious service, so why not do the legal work at home where you know your papers are recorded properly?

      If you want a religious ceremony (my daughter's was non-denominational) instead of a Justice of the Peace, I heartily recommend Kiko Flores. It will be an additional cost, but he performed a service that was so moving and personal that our guests thought that he had known my daughter and her husband from home. I will be happy to share his email if you are interested.

        I was wondering if you know the cost of the ceremony your daughter had? I am planning on doing the same thing. Could you also send me the contact for Kiko Flores?

          I only have an email for Kiko, and I will PM it to you. Kiko has given me permission to share his email, but I'm a bit uncomfortable posting it on the internet...it is just such an invitation for spam.

          As for the cost, I'll leave that to you and Kiko. My advice to any bride (and her mother!) on two things you do not want to cut back on are 1) the ceremony, and 2) the photographer. Everything else you do in planning your wedding is lost if these aren't right. The words spoken for your ceremony stay with you, and your photographs are your keepsake for that day. My daughter and her husband had so much fun during their ceremony, and when I looked back at our guests, everyone was drawn into the the service that was taking place. I expected to cry through the whole thing, but I didn't...everything was so right.
