If you plan on having a legally-binding civil wedding in Riviera Maya, you’ll need a blood test done in Mexico. The tests usually runs couples about US $250. Thankfully, if you plan your wedding with a resort, they can often do this simple procedure easily right on-site in a very clean, comfortable and clinical environment so you don’t have to worry.
Many resorts offer all-inclusive wedding packages that include a wedding planner to guide you through the process.
