NATIONALITY: If the bride or the groom own the Nationality of the country where the wedding will be performed, they need to notify this information in advance to the Wedding Sales Executive due that these type of marriages need to follow different legal requirements.

  • Blood Tests: Are required for legal weddings in Mexico. HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, herpes and all the STD´s are tested. Tests must be performed in Mexico by a certified doctor (for the medical certificate). The MICE Manager will arrange the doctor appointment in your hotel room. It is very important to mention that If one of the tests cames back positive the ceremony cannot be performed.

Marriage certificate

  • For Civil weddings: The new couple will receive a copy of the marriage license and the original will be sent within 5 to 6 months to your home. (Please note that the Mexican Government can take longer to send these documents). When you receive these documents you should translate them into English and go to your city Hall to legalize the marriage.
  • Important: We reccomend you to verify the procedure that you will have to follow in order to legalize your marriage certificate in your home country, as sometimes an apostille is required. If you need to Apostille for your Marriage Certificate, please be advised that you will have to cover the amount of this service. Riu Hotels & Resorts is not responsible for this legal procedure
  • Symbolic Ceremonies or Renewal of Vows: The couple will receive a marriage certificate without legal bearing on the wedding day.
  • Important: For couples traveling from Canada, please take into consideration that flights to the Pacific area in Mexico normally arrive on Thursday only, therefore if you wish to perform your wedding on a Saturday, the day of arrival for a Civil/ Legal ceremony must be Tuesday, three full business days (3) or Wednesday, two (2) full business days to perform a symbolic wedding on Saturday, bear in mind that no exceptions are allowed.
