Destination Weddings in Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya

Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya Weddings The Riviera Maya is quickly becoming the new "hot spot" to commemorate the once in a life time experience of getting married. Many people are choosing to leave their own homes to design a wedding that not only will be unique, but will also cost a fraction of the cost of a high end wedding in other parts of the world. On average a wedding in the United States can easily run $30,000 USD, with an average UK wedding running upwards of £19595 (just under $38,000 USD), and Canada tops the list with wedding bills as high as $60,000 Canadian (about $54,000 USD) in some metropolitan areas. A wedding in Mexico can literally cost a third of the price, and with destination weddings usually catering to smaller groups the number can go down even more. And just because the cost is lower this does not mean people are compromising on quality or service, but rather enhancing their experience by embracing a foreign land and culture. More and more couples are shedding traditional norms, and are heading south of the border to have a dream wedding some people well, only dream about. Imagine saying your wedding vows with the Caribbean Sea as the back drop, your toes in the white sand on our beautiful white sandy beaches, and warm breezes gently surrounding you as you take the vows to love, honor, and cherish each other. Whether you want an informal beach ceremony for two, or, if you are looking for a more upscale event for a larger group at one of the fancy resorts, or if your dream wedding falls somewhere in between, there is a perfect location for you to hold the wedding of your dreams in the Riviera Maya.

REQUIREMENTS AND DETAILS

Now that the question has been popped, and accepted, the date has been set, and you both have decided to get married in the Riviera Maya, Mexico you now need to know the legalities and requirements of getting married in Mexico. It is better to take care of as much of your paperwork prior to arriving so that you won't have to worry about as much once you arrive. You will have plenty of other things you will be preoccupied with. Worrying about wedding license and legal paperwork should be at the bottom of your list. We recommend taking care of the legal aspect of your wedding at least one month before your wedding date.

 

The following is a list of legal requirements needed to get legal permission and a wedding license in Mexico for a civil ceremony. The following laws and regulations are subject to change.

ID Requirements in Mexico:

If you are not a resident of Mexico, you will be asked for a tourist visa and a valid passport. The airlines will provide you with your tourist visa form if you are flying into Mexico. If you are driving, you will need to get one in an immigration office in Mexico when crossing the border.


Ceremony:

A marriage in Mexico is legal only if it is a civil ceremony performed at a local Civil Register Office (Oficina del Registro Civil). Your marriage certificate, given to you after your ceremony is completed, is your official documentation. Some countries outside of Mexico require the certificate to be notarized. It is important that you check with local laws and requirements from your place of residence. Many couples choose to have a civil ceremony prior to their Mexican celebration and forego the legal civil ceremony here.

Waiting Period in Mexico:

It generally takes at least three working days to have your paperwork and documents processed.

Divorce:

If you have been divorced, you need to wait a year before applying for a marriage license. You will also need a certified copy of your divorce decree or a certified copy of a death certificate if either the bride or groom is a widow(er).
Medical requirements:
A blood test for blood type, syphilis, and HIV are required in Mexico. The results must be translated into Spanish so there are a couple of different ways to handle the medical requirements.

a) A letter from your family doctor that states the results of the above tests translated into Spanish and dated at least 15 days prior to your wedding date

b) Test results directly from a laboratory translated into Spanish and dated at least 15 days prior to your wedding date.

c) Test results from tests administered in Mexico. This is a very easy process and only takes a brief stop at a local lab, and the results will be given in Spanish so there is no need to have them translated. It is recommended that these tests be done 2 days prior to your wedding if you choose to do it here in Mexico.

Witnesses:
4 witnesses, 2 per person, each will need a valid passport and tourist visa as well as being over 18 years of age.

Under 18:

Parental consent is required if either of you is under 18.

Fees in Mexico:

It will cost you approximately $200 USD to get all of your legal documents required to get married in Mexico.

*Weddings are not performed on Sundays.
