If you want a tropical wedding experience, then why not think about weddings abroad in Mexico. This country is awash with palm fringed beaches in gorgeous locations such as the Yucatan Peninsular as well as the more tourist destinations of Cozumel, Cancun and of course Acapulco. Naturally this country isn't just about the sandy white beaches and azure waters. Photo opportunities abound everywhere and can make a stunning backdrop to your wedding ceremony. Why not try an ancient Mayan marriage ceremony at the stunning ruins of Chichen Itza or an all inclusive resort in the beautiful surroundings of Cabo. Whatever you choose, Mexico has it all.
Only civil marriages are recognised as legally binding here in Mexico. If you prefer a religious wedding ceremony, then it is possible but by doing so will mean that you are not legally married . Foreigners are not subject to residency requirements but will need a valid ID such as a birth certificate, passport and drivers licence (if applicable) Couples requesting to get married will need a blood test at least 3 days before the ceremony (necessary for all states) and a thorax x-ray plate test (necessary in only some states). You will also need between 2-4 witnesses to your marriage who are over 18. They also need to supply documentation. Marriage licenses can be picked up at the numerous 'oficina's del registro located throughout the country. For further information click the link below
