Wow what a great thread, thank you so much for all this.

 

We are thinking of having our wedding here, I am just confused with the legal side of it all. In the TA brochures it says you need to get your birth certificates translated into spanish and on the Mexican embassy website it doesn't mention this, although it does say in some areas you don't need your birth certificate at all. Does anyone know what the crack is at this resort? Any advice on this would be muchly appreciated. If anyone has had any experience on this how did you go about getting the translations (if required)? I should probably mention we are from the UK, I don't know if there are different requirements for US & UK citizens? Confused!! 

 

Thanks

 Hi, I am from the UK and do not have to have any documents translated. I just need to show my passport and tourist card (which you are given to fill in on the plane) and you have to have blood tests in resort. From what I can gather, if you were adopted, have been divorced or have changed your name you will need to get certain papers translated but if you let your wedding coordinator know if this is the case they will tell you exactly what you will need to do.

Hi fraggle 42

 

Thank you, that clears that up. I think that is where I was getting confused. We have never been divorced although my fiance has been adopted so I guess we will probably need to get the adoption cert translated then. I am just trying to weigh up whether its worth the hassle having a legal ceremony (which we would prefer) or to save money, time etc and have the symbolic ceremony.

 

Thanks again.

Good morning Bahia Brides!

The spa list has been updated with the most current spa list and spa prices, along with the emails for the spa. 


Please let me know if you need anything else.

 

Also, just a reminder, I will be at the resort in three weeks.  If there is anything you'd like a detailed photograph of or more information on, please let me know as soon as you can.


Thanks!

Thanks Trisha! Actually - now that I think about it...if you could possibly (if its not too much trouble) get some pics of around the main pool area at Tulum - I'm trying to decide if its worth bringing lanterns down or not - I want to make sure there's plenty of spaces to hang them

 

Also a few shots of the beach location at Tulum too! more specifically from the ocean looking back to the beach ?

Thanks!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
