According to a 2012 SFgate.com article, "If you work with a wedding planner or a resort in Mexico, they can assist you with the details. Should you choose to get legally married in Mexico without the assistance of a planner, you'll need passports, birth certificates, divorce certificates (if relevant), local blood tests and chest x-rays (in some states), three days to three months of prep time, four witnesses who are not your parents, a Mexican justice of the peace, a translator, about $650 and a mulish ability to stand in line and slog through red tape." The author of this article's information is confirmed in various travel websites as well as the Mexican government's official page on marriage requirements.
