Is my marriage in Mexico legal?

Legal marriages in Mexico are called “Civil Ceremonies” and are conducted by a Judge residing in the locality where you wish to get married. However, if you wish to be legally married in Mexico, we recommend that you make arrangements with your wedding planner to have the civil wedding performed at the Puerto Vallarta Registry Office, or at your villa, on the morning of your wedding ceremony – or the day before. Marriages performed by ministers or priests (even Catholic Priests) are not legally binding in Mexico. They are the symbolic and spiritual part of your wedding celebration.
