    Ok, this could be a stupid question, but I keep reading how you need to be in Mexico for 3 business days before being married etc etc etc... But they are not specifying if that pertains only to a legal wedding or not. We will be legally married in the States before we leave for Mexico, DO WE STILL HAVE TO BE THERE FOR 3 BUSINESS DAYS BEFORE THE WEDDING?

        This may not answer anyone's question. However, I am planning on having a Catholic Church ceremony and I was confused on wheter I would still need to take the blood tests, arrive a certain amount of days prior, etc. I spoke to a cousin who married in Mexico (and previously lived there). She and her husband recieved there Marriage License here in L.A, then months later at there Ceremony in Mexico they just presented there License. She said she did not have to take the blood tests.

        So I'm planning on just doing the same. Getting my marriage license here then having the Church Ceremony in PV.
