My fiance and I would love to have our wedding in Mexico, but I am very skeptical about the blood test. I have read so many reviews on here about some going ahead and having the blood test and others not. My concern is the cleanliness....I don't want to go to Mexico and contract some infection or disease from it not being sanitary. Our wedding would either be at one of the Palace Resorts or Hard Rock Cancun. Our parents are members to both. Does anyone know if these resorts have the clinic on the resort? Also, if we have a legal ceremony, is it performed in Spanish? We speak English and I have read comments about the ceremony being in Spanish. Thanks for any help!!!!

Hello Carley,

Both of the resorts you are mentioning should have doctor on site, not a clinic but at least a room accommodation where they are available for the hotel's guests 24 hours a day.  

If you decide to go with the wedding package that the hotel offers, the doctor on site or a lab company suggested by your wc on site will come to your room, lobby or the doctor's office to do the lab test.  Do not worry, they will show you the new needle before doing the blood test. You can ask them to use gloves so you can feel secure and comfortable.  Besides that, the type of hotel were you will be staying are 5 stars so you should not worry at all.

Happy planning!

Thanks for that update! After reading all the positive reviews on this I am more at ease, yet we did decide to do a symbolic wedding because of cost.

So from what I've gathered from other posts, if you have a civil ceremony (which requires a blood test), the wedding is performed in Spanish and you can either have your wedding coordinator or a family member translate it into English. If you have a symbolic ceremony (not legally married in Mexico or your choice of destination, but instead get married at the courthouse prior to leaving for your DW). I personally want my ceremony performed in English, so I am getting married in NY before I leave for Mexico and then having a symbolic wedding in Mexico. We are going to the courthouse and literally signing the wedding documents and only bringing our parents as witnesses. We are not exchanging rings or even letting anyone else know that we are legally married and having them all consider our wedding in Mexico our actual wedding (we will exchange our rings and vows in Mexico and consider that our anniversary). In doing a symbolic ceremony, the ceremony is in English, you don't have to have the blood work done, and you don't pay to have all your documents translated from English to Spanish and then back again to English to bring to the U.S. Hope this helps!! :)

Hello,

The Justice of the Peace normally only speaks spanish and as Carley says a family member a friend or the wc on site can help with the translation during the ceremony.  There a different Justice of the peace in the area and all of them are assigned to cover certain areas along the riviera maya, so ask your wc if the Justice of the Peace assigned to your hotel speaks english because sometimes they do and you do not have to worry about that.  

 

Note: If the Justice of the peace english is not that good, you might prefer that a family member or a friend do the translation.

 

Best Regards!

    • 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.
