Hosting Your Same-Sex Wedding in Mexico
If you are looking for an exotic location for your same-sex wedding, you may not have to travel too far. Mexico is a great place for a wedding, with a variety of resort towns, coastal cities, and obscure locations to explore.
Visit the large hotels of Mexico City or the beautiful coastal resorts in Acapulco, Cancun, and Cozumel. You may also want to take a trip to the colonial city of Guanajuato. Founded in 1554, Guanajuato is full of colorful streets, alleyways, and underground tunnels that wind through the vast city in a large maze.
The History of Same-Sex Marriages in Mexico
In Mexico, the laws regarding marriage fall to the individual states. When you plan on getting married in Mexico, you will need to check the local state legislation to determine whether or not same-sex marriage is legal. In Mexico City, along with the state of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nayarit, and Quintana Roo, same-sex marriage is legal, yet it remains restricted in many other states.
Mexico City led the path for legalizing same-sex marriage in Mexico by passing new legislation in 2009. The law went into effect on March 4th 2010. Since then, the legalization of same-sex marriage has been an ongoing battle.
Obtaining a Marriage License in Mexico
Obtaining a marriage license in Mexico will require significant planning. As mentioned, same-sex marriage is not accepted in all Mexican states. First, make sure that civil marriages for same-sex couples are allowed in the region where you will be getting married.
You will also need to file a marriage request form, provide original and copies of your birth certificates, blood tests, passports, tourist cards, official ID’s of witnesses, and then finally you must legalize your union in your country of residence.
