    Hello ladies! I have emailed Yesica about a week ago and have not gotten a response yet (it took her a month last time, so I don't know what to expect) I have a few questions if anyone could help me I would really appreciate it.

    I am using the Ultimate Wedding package that Dreams offers and expecting about 30-40 guests. Does anyone know how much extra does a dance floor and dj or music set up cost? Also as a different option can we rent speakers and bring our own music? I have an ipod we could use that has a ton of music on it. I read on here that people have done that. Do you know how much it costs to rent the speakers?

    Also how does the legal aspect of the marriage process work in Mexico? I know we have to do a blood test and it takes up to 6 months to get the wed license sent back to us in the USA. Is there anything else about that thats important that I should know? I have been reading online a little, and I read that some people get married in the states and have a non legal ceremony performed in Mexico. I am trying to figure out what would be best for us. Honestly would it be alot less of a hassle for us to just get married at the court in the states beforehand? We are open to both. Basically we want to go whatever would be easiest and less of a hassle.

    Any advice is appreciated! Thanks so much

      I didn't do a package so I don't have any info on this kinda stuff - sorry!

      We did the legal wedding in Mexico. On Thursday before the wedding Maye came with a dude who took our blood. No pain, super easy. The judge performed our ceremony and Maye translated. The ceremony has required wording in order to make it legal - but you can add stuff. We added readings and a hand ceremony. After the ceremony we signed some documents. Prior to the wedding we had told Maye we wanted 3 copies of the wedding certificate so there were 3 we had to sign after the ceremony. Maye then had one copy taken to La Paz and had it apostilled. She dropped them off at Dreams and we picked them up on our way from Todos Santos to the airport on the day we left.

      In WA, we don't have to file anything. I'm not changing my name either, so I haven't had to take any of these docs to any agencies. That probably makes my experience simpler than others.

        I don't know about the package becuase I am just doing the $24/pp on my ceremony & reception. I am renting speakers from Dreams though for the reception and Yesica quoted me $150/night for this.

        Here is what Yesica gave me for other entertainment though if this helps.
