As is standard for our wedding planners in Southern California here at Wish Wonder Dream, we’ll start off this post by telling you, congratulations on your engagement! There’s so much that goes into planning a wedding, and while our wedding planners can help you with just about everything and anything, it’s important to remember the one reason behind all of this: the love you have for one another. Sappiness aside, we’re happy for you, and we want to make sure that your wedding is as fun, enjoyable and memorable as possible.

Your Pasadena Wedding Consultant That Cares

If you haven’t put any thought into getting married abroad, this post is for you. While Wish, Wonder, Dream primarily serves couples in California, we are also proud to offer a network of coordinators in Great Britain and Cabo San Lucas. Naturally, there are many logistics and considerations when it comes to traveling abroad for your own wedding or planning a destination wedding but, for the sake of wedding preparation, we encourage you to read more about it below. As always, feel free to learn more about our luxury wedding planner or wedding consultant services today!

Planning Is Key

While it’s true that there are no shortage of resorts that provide romantic beach weddings in Mexico – again, Cabo San Lucas is our particular area of focus – getting married in Mexico, or another foreign country, for that matter, requires a great dealing of planning to make sure that you get hitched without a hitch. Fortunately, wedding planning is literally our business model!

Seriously, Destination Weddings Take Time

Let’s look at a destination wedding in Mexico, for example. After months and months of planning to get all of your ducks in a row, the bride and groom should plan to arrive at least three days before the ceremony in order to get their medical tests. Additionally, in order for your wedding to be officially recognized in the United States, you’ll need to have the wedding certificate processed to receive an official Apostille seal. At this point, the certificate will then be mailed to your address.

Legal Considerations

If only getting married abroad was as simple as showing up at the chapel and saying, “I do.” Every area, including Great Britain and Mexico, has its own rules about paperwork, residency requirements, and so forth. All things considered, when you’re planning your wedding overseas, it’s wise to consult the local U.S. consulate for guidance. Naturally, the consular officers can’t actually officiate your wedding, but they can tell you what to expect, which of course, is very helpful.

An Experience You’ll Never Forget

Marriages are special in and of themselves, but traveling to a foreign destination to tie the knot is a true peak life experience. Though there’s a ton of planning that goes into everything, Wish Wonder Dream is here to help!
