    Hey everyone,

    So new here, and looking for some advice. 

    Headed to Panama in 7 days for a vacation to visit my fianc©'s family. 

    We were considering having our wedding there in 2013, but after doing some reading the test screening and such scares me (not because I dont think we would pass, but I'm very particular with my doctors and getting blood taken etc..) I would greatly appreciate it if someone could walk me through there experience with all the legal issues and what not!


    Thanks so much

        Congratulations Olivia and welcome to the forum!  I am sure there are other brides with the same concerns.  You may want to search the forums specific to that topic.

          Congrats and welcome to the forum! 


          I know that a lot of brides had the same concerns about getting married in Mexico (it's one of the reasons I got married in Jamaica instead), and some people would do the legal part of the ceremony here before or after the one in Mexico, so that's always an option.  Don't quote me on it, but I think it's as simple as just doing the paperwork here and having a"legal day" at the courthouse and then you go away for your cermonial marriage.  A lot of people kept this information to themselves to keep the very special feel of newly married at their DW.  If that's not an option for you, I know there are others that can chime in and let you know exactly what the legal part entails in Mexico (Panama).
