    The FI and I have thought about just doing a Justice of the Peace ceremony here and then doing a symbolic one in Mexico. Has anyone done that or thought about it?

      Dear SimplyMV,

      In the area, there are many types of symbolic ceremonies and our favorite is the mayan.

      The mayan ceremony is ancient and has to be performed by a Shaman by legacy (there are only 3 real Shamans in the area)

       

      Here is a video of a mayan ceremony followed by a TTD and you will find more info in the following link:

      If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer at info@yazmindelamora.com

       

      Happy planning!

      Hi SimplyMV - many, many Mexico brides choose to have a legal ceremony at home, and a symbolic ceremony in Mexico. Mostly to avoid the additional costs, and the bloodwork.

       

      We did the legal paperwork with a JP here in TX a couple of weeks before our Mexico symbolic ceremony/wedding. Our resort had a certificate for us to sign as part of the ceremony, so most of our guests didn't know that it wasn't a legal ceremony.

       

      And doing the legal part with the JP didn't take away from how special our Mexico wedding was.

       

      hope that helps!!

        Thanks so much for the info! I definitely think this is what we will do.

          Hello again SimplyMV,

          We talked today to the Justice of the Peace and they said they can offer a similar ceremony to the civil ceremony but with no legal value.

          Since ceremony is very short, if you are interested, they can add a unit candle ceremony with no extra charge.  

           

          Price will be less than the half of the price of the regular civil ceremony.

           

          Good luck in your search!

          We are planning a Court House legal marriage in Chicago a few weeks before our DW at Azul Sensatori.  It should take about 5 minutes in the Judge's chambers with no ceremony.  We'll just do what we need to do to be legal. While I am not keeping the legal marriage a secret, we are also not planning to have any guests or witnesses.  But, I want everyone to be part of our 'real wedding in Mexico when we say our vows in front of friends and family.

            Hello SimplyMV,

             

            If you are choosing to have a symbolic ceremony do remember that there are other options such as having a closer family friend/member perform the ceremony rather than getting a minister.  

             

            Feel free to reach out should you need more information/ advice!

             

            Happy Planning

              We are technically getting married at the UPS store close to where we live before we travel to Mexico. We would rather have all legal stuff done here stateside before we go. I don't want to have to worry about trying to get copies of marriage certificates later and having them translated.

              That's a good idea. My friend got married in Jamaica last year and it took a couple of months to get the official certificates. I'd rather not wait.
