Mexico City Marriage Requirements

Marriage Requirements

To have a legal destination wedding in Mexico City, foreign citizens need to fulfill certain requirements. This includes presenting valid passports, tourist cards, and a marriage application. Additionally, you'll need to have a blood test done in Mexico and bring four witnesses to the ceremony. Another option (which many couples choose to do), is to have a symbolic destination wedding in Mexico City and have a legal ceremony in their home state/country either before or after the trip. Your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist can answer any questions you may have on both options to decide which route is best for you.

Mexico City Wedding Packages

Wedding Packages in Mexico City

Since all hotels in Mexico City are EP (not all-inclusive), you'll most likely have to build your wedding package a la carte. That means hiring individual vendors to bring your vision to life (florist, photographer, DJ, etc.). Your chosen hotel/venue may have a preferred vendor list to help you get started. Speak with your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist for more information.

Travel Documents

To travel to Mexico City, a valid passport is essential. It's advisable to ensure your passport has at least six months of validity from the date of travel. You'll also need a tourist card (FMM), which is typically provided by airlines or available at ports of entry. US citizens can visit travel.state.gov for the most up-to-date information on traveling to Mexico City. Canadian citizens should visit travel.gc.ca.

Language

Spanish is the official language of Mexico and is dominant in Mexico City. While English is widely spoken and understood in tourist areas and major establishments, embracing a few Spanish phrases can enhance your overall experience and show appreciation for the local culture.

Currency & Tipping

The official currency of Mexico is the Mexican Peso (MXN). While US Dollars may be accepted in some tourist areas, it's recommended to have pesos for a hassle-free experience. Tipping is customary, especially at EP hotels and restaurants, for key staff who have provided exceptional service.
