    Hey Abbie, I 'm getting it done here before i go. My friends had a bad experience in mexico withthe doctors so i feel alot safer signing a paper rather than giving my blood.

    I have a question for all the Canadian brides, is anyone doing the paperwork before they leave? I call it "paperwork" because I don't consider it getting married before you leave. I'm still debating on what to do. I'm just paranoid of anything going wrong and I'm wondering if anyone has done or is planning on doing the paperwork here before they go. I know a lot of brides are doing this but I'm curious to know the process for Canadian brides to do this. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Regardless of what we decide my wedding day is in Mexico, not signing papers downtown. haha

      I'm starting to think we should just do the symbolic there and the legal here after we return. I'm not sure how my FI will react if I suggest it though. Any advice? I'm also worried about all the extra costs that might be involved with the legal ceremony in Mexico.

        Hi,

         

        I don't think there is much of a difference in cost for a leagl ceremony. You will have to pay for the bloodwork and then to have your documents translated (I'm not sure if that is done there or at home). The cost of the actual wedding package should be the same for symbolic and legal ceremonies (at least it is at my resort). I think if you explained to your FI all of the reasons that everyone has pointed out then he may also see the benefit in doing the legal stuff at home. It's hard to say because everyone will see it differently but hopefully the two of you can come to an agreement of some sort :)

          I think that depends on the resort... we're getting married at Dreams Tulum, and things like the bloodwork and translations of documents are not included in the wedding packages.  We would be paying an additional $400 to be legally married there!

           

          But to avoid all the hassle of paperwork and wait time (and FI is scared of needles lol) we were also going to secretly do the paperwork here first.  But hearing that some of you chose to do it after, I'm thinking thats actually a better idea!  That way I wont feel like we are lying to our guests either

            The extra costs that I know of are: $300 for the blood work and about $25 each for us to obtain our birth certificates. I don't know how much, if anything, we have to pay to translate our birth certificates. If we do, I estimates that would probably be another $100?

              Most places I have looked into also have a $300 charge for the judge to make the ceremony legal. So you are looking at $300 for judge, $300 for bloodwork & $300 for document translation.

                  Hi Chars,

                   

                  When are you getting married in April 2011? I'm getting married on April 6th, 2011 at the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum. Well, we're staying there but we're getting married at the Akumal hammocks beach location.

                    Hi Abbie..We are getting married April 29th, 2011...at the Tulum Gazebo. But staying at Coba. Have you been to the resort before? We went there last year and it is absolutely amazing!

                    We've been to alot of resorts, and this one by far is my favourite!

                     

                    We are bringing our own photographer, even though a fews pics are included in our blissful love package from the resort photographer....just wondering if the resort will be upset with me since I don't want their pics??
