It would be much cheaper if only its required for the one so I dot want to get both certificates translated for the sake of it. Please could somebody clarify. Thanks
We are from Scotland and holidaying from 10 > 24 June 2013 with 20 other family and friends. We get married on 20 June having holidayed at the Bahia Principe chain of hotels for the last 18 years - all over the world and have stayed at the Mayan Riveria twice before. It is beautiful and the staff cannot do enough for you, we love it so much hence we are getting married there.
We are both divorced and I reverted back to my maiden name, we have been advised by the WC at Bahia :-
The Bahia are continually putting brides mind at ease regarding the confusion Travel Agents cause by giving FALSE information regarding having to get birth and divorce documents translated and legalised.
There is NO requirement for any of the GROOM'S documents to be translated or legalised this applies whether he HAS or HAS NOT been married before.
If the BRIDE has been married before and has reverted back to her maiden name, provided this is the name she travels on and is the name that is on her passport again there is NO requirement for any of the bride's documents to be translated or legalised
Translation and legalisation is required is when a bride has divorced but kept her married name (Ive never heard of anyone doing this) These are a note of some amazing and helpful thread/links
"Post Your Wedding Date" http://www.bestdesti...ur-wedding-date

"Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!"
OFFICIAL Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Thread
Anyone used Arrecife Photography at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum/Akumal/Coba
These are the links to each of the 3 different locations, if you click on each of them then click on the photos in turn you are given a 360 degree view of each point - pretty good
Tulum Gazebo wedding location is on the furthest right of this picture
Akumal wedding location is roughly on the large beach area in front of the swimming pool that is on the left side of this picture. Coba is the area in the background - it is central and doesnt have it's own beach area.
Anyone have their entire playlist?
Happy planning, enjoy the journey Kirstin x
