All foreign documents, except the passport, must be apostilled by the authorities of the foreign country where they were issued. Also, a Certified Translator must translate the birth certificates into Spanish.

We will arrange for a copy of the marriage license to be sent to you immediately after the ceremony. The translated and final license, which has international legal validity, (including in the U.S.) can be requested and be mailed to you within one or two months after the wedding.

 

Religious ceremony

The paperwork for the Catholic ceremony must be completed in the parish corresponding to your home address area. They will subsequently send a sealed and completed file to the church of your choice in Puerto Vallarta, usually within 15 days prior to the wedding day. We will make sure that the file has been received and that all the documents are in order.

 

Other religious ceremonies are also available, such as Lutheran, Jewish, etc. Make sure to notify your Wedding Planner the type of ceremony that your interested in, so she can verify the availability of the officiant and requirements in advance.

 

Spiritual or Symbolic ceremony

The Spiritual or Symbolic Ceremony does not require specific paperwork since it is usually officiated by a minister of peace withno denomination, therefore, you and your fiance will be able to choose the rituals that are more suitable for you. i.e. sand, wine, candle, etc.

 

Native ceremony

The native ceremony does not require filing any special paperwork. The only request for couples is to prepare their own vows to be exchanged during the ceremony. However, it is worth mentioning that some couples decide not to exchange vows
