Should we get legally married before, in or after Cancun? (Ontario, Canada)

Make sure you have a copy of them, the mail/courier service to/from Mexico is horrible and it may take months to get to you or never arrive.

I haven't looked into all of the prices yet because my wedding is so far away, but I'm not changing my name, so it'll be the price of the certificate and the license. From what I've found they're less than $100 each, plus whatever the officiant charges. It's still cheaper than Mexico, at least for me without the name change.

I attended the webinar today for the hotel that we want (Gran Caribe/ The Royal) in Cancun and they said that the officiant for symbolic ceremonies at their hotel is $100. I'm not sure what hotel you're thinking of going with, but that might also help with your decision.
