    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?

    Anyone used Arrecife Photography at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum/Akumal/Coba

    Arrecife Studio Mexico, WEG

    http://www.bestdesti...udio-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 For us this was done at the medical centre, located at the Hacienda within the Bahia Principe 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

      I am aware that the access does not happen immediately. I have been debating if I should pay the $30 but just this week along I have about 60 new post, I joined a couple of months ago but have been slacking since I had so much time to go. Now I can't wait to get there

        From a template here?

        I'm using the boarding pass template for STD and to have guests go to our website to RSVP. I am using the passport as a welcome package. And to think, we haven't even figured out the wedding date or resort yet! Well at least I won't be scrambling to finish it...lol!

          Icis, So how are you creating STD's without Resort and date? 

          I'm leaving the space for the resort and date blank for now since we r prob not going to send them out until a year from now. But when i have the date i can just plug in the date and location. There's a lot to fix on the template...well at least for me cuz: a) I like to use publisher. All templates are either in PowerPoint or word. So I'm importing and making a template in publisher. B) I want to make it more like an "authentic" boarding pass...so I'm tweaking the wording, the fonts used, the color. And mine will be double sided so lots to change. c) I made a monogram that will be used for all our stuff...including on the ticket Anyways, I know I'm crazy about it bit I know it will come out awesome!!! Muahahaha!!

            You will.  I went back on archived planning journals & threads & commented on things I liked.  Found a lot of good ideas by accident.

              Absolutely not crazy at all. We all want the best. 

               

              I didn't noticed your wedding is "sometime in 2015" so you certainly have time to pick a date and resort
