We are having a legal ceremony, so we actually want to get married down there. I was sort of happy about the cost of the marriage and all the paper work being included (besides the $150 blood work fee). Can anyone give me some feedback on why they are booking a minister?
And is booking a minister expenisve?
From what I understand in Mexico it is customary to have 2 ceremonies a legal one and spiritual one. I'm getting legally married in Mexico before my spiritual ceremony in Mexico. Again, as I understand it, the judge in Cabo can either come to you, or you can go to him to have the legal ceremony performed. We're doing the legal ceremony separate from the spiritual ceremony. All of our guests will be present at the spiritual ceremony only. I hope this helps.

All legal ceremonies in Mexico are performed in Spanish (Legal Marriage)

For the spiritual ceremonies you can hire an American Minister he will perform your ceremoy in English, and you can choose your ceremony or work with your minister on the kind of ceremony you want. The cost for a Minister goes from $300 to $350 USD

Yes we are having him do only a spiritual ceremony for us in English. We are getting married here before we leave. But none of our guests know this so he is going to make it seem like we are actually doing it legally! I hope that makes sense.

Update on Scott Parsons - I had him booked for months to do my ceremony later this year and he just cancelled on me. I find that extremely unprofessional and now I'll be forced to find someone else last minute. I don't recommend using him!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
