How Long Before To Legally Get Married If Doing Symbolic

Recommended Posts

Question we live in Texas and are planning on legally getting married 2 weeks before our wedding in cancun. I know texas only has 3 day waiting period after obtain license to get married. But how long after do we get the marriage certificate? What if we don't get it in time how do we prove to hotel that we were married so we qualify for the honeymoon package?

Is there not a website for the court house or wherever you get your marriage license that you can check for information? I know nothing about the processes in Texas so can't help out, but maybe there is another bride to be here that can help. Or take a look and see if there is a website.

 

Good luck!!

We had our honeymoon at a different resort from our wedding.  We used the "symbolic certificate" at our honeymoon resort for the package - it was fine :)

@@misbosox - If you are getting married at the resort, even if symbolic, that should be sufficient for the honeymoon package. We are not bringing our marriage license; we just automatically get the honeymoon package. That would be crazy if you went through all of that with the resort and still had to show a legal marriage license!

I live in Texas and we filed for our marriage license 2 weeks ago. You have a period of 90 days (from when you filed) to get legally married. We are doing a symbolic ceremony in Mexico (I call it a ring and vow exchange) and we are getting legally wed two days before we leave. I hope that helps!

Oh they also told me...the officiant (or whoever marries you guys) will mail in the marriage license. It said it should take a couple of business days for the courthouse to file your marriage license before they return it back to you.

How nice to see 2 other brides from Texas :) I just filed for our licencse. In my opinion (moved here about one year ago) Texas is very effecient so I am not too worried about the marriage license. Mexico has nvr mentioned having an actual document.. I nvr thought to ask that. I will def ask wedding coordinaotr and get it in writing. Good luck brides!

@@BecomingaRiggio We are getting married at Moon Palace in Cancun on June 23. We are doing our courthouse ceremony on June 5th. I know for the marriage licence there is a waiting period for getting married I think its 3 days after you get your licence then you can get married.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
