Our aim is to ensure your wedding is easy and stress-free, as well as gorgeous and memorable.
How many days do I need to be at the resort before we can get married? For civil ceremonies, you must be at the hotel three full business days before the wedding. Saturdays, Sundays and Mexican national holidays are not considered business days.
For symbolic and religious ceremonies, there must be a full business day between hotel arrival and the ceremony. So if you are marrying on a Saturday, you’ll need to arrive at the hotel on Thursday.
What are the Mexican national holidays? January 1; February 2; March 16; April 9-11; May 1; September 16; November 16; and December 24-25.
Are there any restrictions on dates or times for the ceremony? You can get married on any day of the week except Mexican national holidays. And you can have your ceremony at any time of the day or night.
Are weddings performed in Mexico legal in the U.S.? Yes, civil ceremonies performed by a judge in Mexico are legal in the U.S. You’ll have to register your legalized marriage certificate at your local City Hall or Courthouse once you return home.
Is the ceremony performed in English or Spanish? Legal/civil ceremonies performed by a judge are conducted in Spanish and translated to English by our On-Site Wedding Coordinator. Symbolic ceremonies performed by a minister are conducted in English.
What if we are not traveling with witnesses for the ceremony? For a legal wedding in Mexico, you’ll need four witnesses; two for the bride and two for the groom. We can provide witnesses for a fee of approximately $20 per witness.
Can I have my blood test done in advance at home? Blood tests for the legal/civil ceremony are required to be performed in Mexico by law. A certified physician performs the tests in a private wedding room at the hotel. The fee is $125 per person.
What is an Apostille Certificate? The Authentications Office of the U.S. Department of State provides U.S. citizens with authentication services on documents that will be used for legal and administrative purposes overseas. An Apostille Certificate with a raised or stamped seal is issued to authenticate a public document for official use in a foreign country.
