Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between an elopement and a pop-up wedding?
Not a lot! An Elopement is typically just the couple and the pop up wedding is for them plus a few more friends and family. Our minimum package covers up to a total of 6 persons but we can always customize it. The common factor is the simplicity, stress-free planning, small to no guest list. You just show up and we take care of the rest!
What is the maximum number of guests I can have?
Elopements are typically for just the couple but with our most basic package we can include up to a total of 6 people. We have other weddings such as pop-up weddings for 10 people and under or small weddings that we can help you plan for 35 or less.
What are the different ceremony options I can choose from?
- Civil Ceremony Only -- Performed by a Mexican judge, in the location of your choice. Due to the separation of Church and State in Mexico, the judge is the only person capable of performing a legal wedding; however, his vows cannot be altered. The ceremony will be performed in Spanish, with an English translation provided.
- Symbolic Only -- Performed by a non-denominational officiate, in the location of your choice, with the legal wedding performed at home at your own leisure.
- Combination Civil Ceremony and Symbolic Ceremony – Non-denominational officiate in the location of your choice. The officiate provides a symbolic (not legal) wedding, in which you are able to customize your vows. Judge is present at ceremony; immediately after symbolic ceremony, legal paperwork is completed. What are the requirements for the legal wedding?
