Symbolic or Non-Denominational Wedding

This ceremony focuses on love, marriage, family and society. Mexican law does not consider this ceremony legally valid. No documentation or blood tests are required.

Civil or Legal Ceremony

This ceremony is performed by a judge and focuses on family and respect for the couple. A list of requirements must be met in order to be legally married under Mexican law.

 

Legal Requirements:

  • Bride, Groom & Witnesses must arrive in Cancºn 4 working days prior to the wedding day (Saturdays, Sundays & Holidays do not count). Symbolic and non-legal ceremonies allow flexibility for arrival date. Please speak with the wedding coordinator to discuss requirements.
  • The wedding coordinator must receive the following documents in order to start the corresponding application for a Wedding in the Civil Registry Office.
  • Tourist Card (you will get one upon arrival to the Cancºn airport). Make sure your name is written as it appears on your passport.
  • If either the bride or groom is divorced, original Birth Certificates are required with the originating country’s Registry Stamp (Le Apostille). This document should be translated into Spanish. The cost is $50 USD + 11% tax per birth certificate. Translation must be done in Mexico to be considered valid.
  • If bride is divorced, a copy of the Final Divorce Decree is required with your country’s Registry Stamp (Le Apostille). This document should be translated into Spanish. The cost is $50 USD + 11% tax per page. Translation must be done in Mexico to be considered valid.
  • Valid Passports.
  • Blood tests, performed in M©xico. Test are not valid if performed elsewhere and should not be performed more than 14 days prior to the ceremony. The blood will be tested for HIV, RPR (sexually transmitted diseases) and blood type. The results will be ready in 24 hours and will be provided with a certificate of the blood test. The charge is $250 USD + 11% tax per couple, to be paid directly to the doctor in cash the day the test is performed.
  • Witness Information. The names, addresses, nationalities, ages, occupation, relationship, copies of tourist cards and valid identification of the four witnesses. The Wedding Coordinator will provide the legal form to fill out.
  • Consider the fee for the Judge’s transportation. The Judge usually performs the civil ceremony at their office, but will oblige to come to the resort if the transportation is provided. The round trip fare from the city is $70 USD. This should be paid directly to the Judge on the wedding day or can be arranged in advance through the wedding coordinator.
  • The Marriage Certificate is only valid in Mexico. In order to make it legal internationally, the Wedding Coordinator will send a copy of your License to the Validation Process. The fee will be $165 USD +11% tax. The process will take up to 2-3 months. Once the document is apostilled, the resort will send all documentation to couples home address.
