    Hello everyone.  I was told by my wedding coordinator that we could have the blood tests done here in the states and have the results sent/ or brought with us. Is that true, as I have searched the internet and only found one site that said that we can do that.  Any suggestions on how to lower the cost of a legal/civil wedding?  Can we do the leg work ourselves, ex. send the copies of the passport, hire the priest/minister, translate the blood work results, have the certificates Fed Ex back to the state (which was stated $150).  Every website has different prices for each of these....blood work from (150-$250 per person, plus have the doctor look and translate the results ($200)...Yikes!!!  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Granted, our hotel has a coordinator also to do this, but it is almost a grand to do.

      For some reason I think that each resort handles it differently, it was one of the reasons that FI and I decided to do a symbolic wedding versus an actual ceremony. Remember, if you have a traditional ceremony it will be in spanish, and if your guests don't speak spanish you will have to employ the use of a translator. another added cost. 

       

      I think you might be at the mercy of the resort with regard to the costs. I can't see how you can lower the cost because these requirements are to be completed through the resort in order for it to be considered legal. Have you spoken with your WC about how to cut corners on cost?

        Hello Jenjen0927,

        As a weeding planner with more than 13 years in the area we always have done all our blood tests in Mexico.

         

        However, I wanted to reconfirm your questions and we just hang up with the Justice of the Peace and they said that it is always possible to have your blood test done in the US or Canada BUT will have to had the apostille from your country and has to be translated here in Mexico which represents a lot of money to do all of that.

         

        That is the reason why it is always better and cheaper to do it here in Mexico.  Blood Tests here in the area are around 250-300 per couple (or even less if we take you directly to the lab) BUT some hotels charge it per person. 

         

        In case you might need any additional information, we will be happy to answer at info@yazmindelamora.com

         

        Best Regards,
