We are having the same problem at the moment, we are getting married in cancun in april next year and having real difficulty getting accurate information on getting our documents translated and apostilled.
What company are you using for translating and apostille, if you dont mind me asking? and how much is it costing you?
I hope you have managed to get things moving along as i know how stressful it can become.

Hi Mark and Elaine
It all depends on where you are from in the world, your marital status - single, adopted, divorced and kept married name, divorced and back to maiden name, widow/widower there are so many different things.
Below are the details we have received for our wedding at Bahia Principe Hotel - we are from Scotland, both divorced and I have reverted to my maiden name
Bride & Groom must be at least 18 years of age at the time of the ceremony.
Bride & Groom & 4 witnesses (2 each) must arrive to their hotel 4 business days prior to the legal wedding ceremony date in order to complete and process the necessary documents and for the Bride and Groom to get the blood tests carried out. NOTE Saturday and Sunday are not considered working days.
BLOOD TESTS to determine blood type, HIV and STD also that bride and groom are not related. Tests must be taken in Mexico. At the Gran Bahia Principe resort there is a medical center which provides this service. The price of the blood test is 90 USD per person that will have to pay in cash.
BRIDE & GROOM ARE SINGLE & FROM UK - Provided their last names match to their parents name & passports the only documentation needed is Birth Certificate, Passport & Tourist cards. NO requirement for translation.
If a bride or grooms former spouse is deceased then a copy of their death certificate is required. This is required for legal ceremonies only.
VALID PASSPORTS They are mandatory for a legal wedding to be performed. Passports must be presented to the wedding coordinator at the time of the wedding meeting. This meeting must be 4 days prior the wedding date. Please send your scanned passports to the WC along with application paperwork.
