Also known as Civil Ceremony, this is the only one that will be recognized as legal once you return to your home country. Being an official event, it is conducted in Spanish by a Judge and translated to English by a Wedding Coordinator.
All Civil Marriages that take place under Mexican laws are completely legal in Mexico. Foreigners marrying in Mexico must legalize their marriage in their country of birth/residence. This is usually done by registering their marriage certificate at their local City Hall.
Translation of the Wedding Certificate has a cost of USD $150.00 and will include an additional copy of the Wedding Certificate, Translation by an Official translator and Fed Ex shipping.
The United States Department of State requires that all Weddings Certificates from ceremonies performed in the Caribbean, including Mexico, have the Apostille Seal. This procedure can be done by our Wedding Coordinators with an additional charge of USD $250. By requesting this service you receive: an extra copy of your wedding certificate, the apostille seal, and translation into English, and FedEx delivery to your home address, usually 90 business days after the ceremony (around 4 months after the wedding has been celebrated).
*** Please note the FedEx Delivery Service offered by Weddings by Lomas Travel does not include the taxes that Customs in your country may charge you for. Thank you for your understanding. ***
