Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to have a legal ceremony in Mexico?
The Legal Ceremony is conducted by a Judge in Spanish with a translation in English. The paperwork must be presented at our civil courthouse at least two days prior to the wedding. If you choose to have your wedding at the Hilton Los Cabos you can relax as your personalized wedding coordinator will guide you through the paper work and turn them in to the civil court house.

The following documents are required:

  • Birth Certificate (Copy)
  • Prenuptial Medical Certificate by Local Health Department and the Lab Test (you will get a blood test here)
  • Copy of your passport or ID
  • Copy of Legal entry to Mexico (Tourist Card – you get it when you enter in the country)
  • Copy of your witnesses ID or Passport (If you choose an intimate wedding of just the two of you then we can provide you with witnesses for the ceremony)
