Travel agents and wedding planners are masters of organization and detail. With the heavy responsibility of coordinating important events in the lives of clients, being able to delegate some of the tasks to a notary apostille facilitator could be an invaluable time and money saver, especially when managing a destination wedding in a foreign country.
Depending on the country where the wedding is taking place, different documents may be required to be apostilled- legally certified, so that they can be recognized in a foreign country. These documents may include marriage licenses, birth certificates, and other legal documents. Weddings in popular destinations like Mexico or the Bahamas have very different requirements from countries such as Thailand or Singapore, and you will want to make sure your client has all of the information they need to complete this process with fidelity.
Obtaining an apostille for destination wedding documents can be complex and time-consuming, as it may involve obtaining signatures and certifications from multiple authorities. An apostille facilitator can help simplify this process by handling all aspects of the apostille request, including obtaining necessary signatures, preparing the documents, and submitting them to the apropriate authorities.

- Facilitate local pickup and delivery of documents
- Expedite the apostille process by providing priority services
- Provide international shipping with FedEx, UPS or other shipping service providers

Samantha was over the moon when her fiancé, Carlos, proposed to her on a beautiful beach in Mexico. They had always talked about getting married in Carlos’ home country, and now that dream was finally coming true. However, as they began to plan their wedding, they quickly realized that there were a lot of documents they needed to have authenticated before they could officially “tie the knot” in Mexico.
That’s when they reached out to an apostille facilitator, John, who specializes in helping clients navigate the process of getting their documents authenticated with a proper apostille from the Secretary of State. John explained to Samantha and Carlos that an apostille is a form of authentication used for documents that will be needed in foreign countries. He assured them that he could help them get all of the necessary documents together and verified so they could have the wedding of their dreams in Mexico.
John worked closely with Samantha and Carlos to gather all of the necessary documents, including their birth certificates, single status affidavit, marriage license, and proof of citizenship. He then took the documents to the Secretary of State’s office to have them authenticated with an apostille. The process was quick and efficient, and John was able to return the documents to Samantha and Carlos in just a few days.
With all of their documents properly authenticated, Samantha and Carlos were finally able to plan their wedding in Mexico. They were able to relax and enjoy the process, knowing that John had taken care of all of the details and paperwork.
