Hey everyone- I've been lurking for a while but this is my first post... :)

 

My fiance and I are getting married at the RIU Palace, July 11, but we're trying to figure out if we'd rather just get married in NJ and have a symbolic ceremony in Mexico.

 

He would prefer not to, but my major hang up is the fact that we may not get the wedding certificate for 6 months! Without the certificate, are we legally recognized as married? Can I change my name?

 

I'd love to hear any info/advice!

 

Thanks

Katrina

Hi Katrina and welcome. I had a legal wedding in Mexico and I got all the legal paperwork back and apostiled 3 days after our wedding. However because the documents were done in Spanish I had to get it translated my a offical company in the states in order for me to change everything over. You may want to check into that...

Tammy-- What company did you use to translate the marriage certificate? How did you find them?

Thanks!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
