Marriage License Needed?

Recommended Posts

Hi girls--important last minute question here....

 

We had our civil ceremony last week and leave at the wee hours of the morning tomorrow for our wedding (yay!) this Saturday in Puerto Vallarta. We did the ceremony first here in the states so we could avoid the stress and running around down in Mexico.

 

Anyway.....we're having a spiritual ceremony by the beach down in PV with a minister and everything, but I just wasn't sure if we needed to have our marriage license for any reason. Did any of you go this route--civil ceremony in the states followed by marriage/spiritual ceremony in Mexico? Did you need the license for anything?

 

Thanks so much!

I went that route and for our spiritual ceremony the marriage license was not needed. I did take a photocopy for the resort, however, because they required proof of recent marriage before they would set up the honeymoon perks. I stayed at Dreams.

 

You're leaving tomorrow!!!! Have a blast!!!

Okay, great, thank you!! So the minister doesn't have to sign it or anything. I'll be making a photocopy right now : )

 

Yep, leaving at 2 a.m. with like a million suitcases....here's to getting the green light : )

Nope the minister doesn't sign it because the Mexico ceremony isn't legal (even though it will feel more real than the other!). I'll cross my fingers that you get the green light! We got the red light and they did go through everything but it was quick and they let us go without having to pay anything extra.

 

Best wishes :o)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
