Hi, I hope someone can help me?
My partner and I are getting married at the El Dorado Maroma Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico next January.
We are really confused with the legal paperwork, and getting conflicting information. in the Legal Requirements document, it states that we have to provide both of our birth certificates and my divorce decree absolute (legalised and translated into English), which will cost us over £450.
The wedding planner from Lomas Weddings (Claudia), is saying that if we don't want our parents names on our marriage certificate (which we're not bothered about), we don't need our birth certificates or my divorce decree absolute, just passports, blood tests, tourist cards, etc. can this actually be right???
Obviously, I don't want to spend out nearly £500 on unnecessary legalisation and translation of documents, but I would hate to get out there, only to find we couldn't be married due to a misunderstanding with our wedding planner.
If anyone out there has, or is getting married at this hotel and the paperwork has been sorted out, I would be so grateful if you could email me with some info, as the girl at Thomson's travel agency's attitude of "it will be stress free, and it will all be done for you", is so far from the truth that I am getting more and more stressed with every passing day.
Many thanks in advance.
