Yes. All legal documentation must be sent at least one month in advance to verify all information. Also, you must have all original documentation with you when you arrive at the resort. Documentation will only apply for legal ceremonies.
If one desires a legal wedding, Mexico requires that you be in the country at least four business days prior. Saturdays, Sundays and Mexican holidays do not count. Also, your arrival day does not count towards the "business day" requirement. You must arrive four full business days prior.
Only a civil ceremony is legally recognized. A religious ceremony has no legal bearing and does not replace in any way the binding legal civil marriage. A renewal of vows or religious ceremony is a symbolic ceremony. It is performed by a non-denominational minister (please note that Catholic ceremonies cannot be performed outside the church). In this case, the bride and groom will receive a symbolic marriage, not legally valid.
There is no fee for providing our wedding coordinators. A specialist will assist you prior to and on the special day and they are available throughout the entire wedding planning period to answer any question you may have regarding the event.
It's very important to let you know that we are not able to do weddings on the beach at Grand Solmar Land's End, due to the closeness to the ocean and the tides change all the time. However the Gazebo is beautiful and is really close to the Beach. At Playa Grande Resort you can have a beautiful wedding on the beach, we have plenty of space to fit more than 100 people and a front ocean terrace that can fit your reception.
We do have a flower vendor that we always work with, almost all flowers are available locally. Although, not all of them are locally so if you are planning on having exotic flowers or winter season flowers then the vendor can import them, prices are different for imported flowers.
Your blood tests must be performed in Mexico and should not be performed more than 14 days prior to the ceremony. The blood will be tested for HIV, RPR (sexually transmitted diseases) and blood type. The results, together with a certificate of the blood test, will be ready in 24 hours. Upon arrival, your wedding coordinator sets the appointment for the next morning at 8.00 A.M. The test requires an empty stomach. The doctor will perform the blood test either in your room or in the coordinator's office.
