Cabo Wedding Ceremonies
There are two types of Cabo wedding ceremonies.
This ceremony is not legally valid and does not change your marital status. You can choose to go to the Justice of the Peace at home to perform a civil ceremony prior to coming to Cabo therefore, there is no need for official documentation or blood tests. This choice offers the most flexibility because you can alter your vows, choose readings, and truly customize your ceremony to reflect your personalities.
A civil ceremony is recognized worldwide as a legal marriage. It performed in Spanish by a judge (you can choose to have a translator) and the vows can not be changed. It is similar to a ceremony by the Justice of the Peace in the U.S. or Canada.
