      I bought my dress 12 months in advance, there's quite the delay for ordering sometimes so it's not too early!

      Hi Guys

       

      These are a few great thread/links that will assist with everything in planning your wedding and will of course help you reach 150 quicker - must let you know when you reach 150 the permissions don't happen over night.

       

      Post Your Wedding Date

      http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/9132/post-your-wedding-date/630

       

      If you go onto the thread/link, ensure you go to the bottom of the thread then copy and paste it then enter your wedding date and the name of the hotel / location.  That way all other brides can see who is getting married dates close to them.

       

      It is handy too as some brides have then shared cost of flying photographers down rather than using Arrecife the onsite photographers or local ones (you then have to pay a visitors day pass)

       

      Anyone have their entire playlist?

      Arrecife Studio Mexico, WEG

      http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/arrecife-studio-mexico-weg

       

      This is their website address http://www.arrecifestudio.com

       

      Arrecife have a facebook page too that has photos, videos and feedback from brides and guests that had photo sessions at the hotel.

       

      We used them for our wedding day and love them all – yes costly but compared to wedding photography prices at home a bargain for what we got.

       

      GENERA L INFORMATION FOR GETTIGN MARRIED IN MEXICO

      Bride & Groom must be at least 18 years of age at the time of the ceremony.

       

      Bride and Groom & 4 witnesses (2 each) must arrive to their hotel minimum of 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 to confirm you are not related!   They must be taken in Mexico.   Blood test costs are separate from all the wedding packages, we were $180 US dollars for the 2 of us - this has to be paid cash at the medical centre, its located at the Hacienda within the hotel. 

       

      BIRTH CERTIFICATES WHEN BRIDE & GROOM ARE SINGLE and their last names match to their parents name & passports no more documentation is needed but Birth Certificate, Passport & Tourist cards. Ask your wedding coordinator after sending the marriage application.

      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 before your arrival (Bride,  Groom and 4 witnesses – 2 each)

       

      TOURIST CARDS  These green cards are provided to all persons on the plane and require to be completed before you enter Cancun’s International Airport – saves time.  Check and double check all areas are completed otherwise you will get put to the back of the que at the airport arrivals desk.. Names on Tourist Card and Passport MUST be the same. This card proves your legal stay in Mexico.  These will be copied by the WC for Bride,  Groom and 4 witnesses – 2 each

      Do NOT loose these cards as you require them when leaving too.

       

      WEDDING CERMONY

      The Mexican Marriage Certificate requires the Bride & Grooms thumbprints.  Make sure someone has wet wipes with them on the day so your dress stays clear from the black ink.  I love our thumbprint photos J


      WEDDING CERTIFICATE

      The certificate is always in Spanish / Mexican.  If you require to get it translated that will be a cost you will have when back home

       

       

       Happy planning, if you have any questions just holler

        Katie ordered her dress in early January and didn't recieve it until mid-June...don't put it off too long because you need to leave time for alterations also.

        I totally agree. It's never too early to get the wedding dress in order. It's just too stressful if it's not done on time.
