    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.
