Important Wedding Information
Passports are required for both legal and spiritual ceremonies.

In order to have your marriage certificate deemed valid in a foreign country, it must be translated and legally stamped. One of the requirements for a legal wedding in Mexico is a blood test that must take place at least 3 business days before the wedding. Symbolic ceremonies may take place at any desired location and are guided by a non-denominational minister who will give a lecture about love. This ceremony can be performed in English. The minister will issue a certificate of non-legal value.
