Getting Married in Cabo? Here’s Some Helpful Information.

If you are thinking about getting married in Cabo you will need to decide which type of ceremony is best for you: A Symbolic/Non-denominational Ceremony or A Civil Ceremony.

The most popular is the symbolic or non-denominational ceremony. 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.

The civil ceremony is recognized worldwide as a legal marriage. It’s performed in Spanish by a judge (you can choose to have a translator) and it must follow vows established by the State of Baja Sur and can not be changed. It is similar to a ceremony by the Justice of the Peace. There are other legal requirements, paperwork, and blood tests required.
