Getting married in El Salvador

Hi all,

We invite all the ones who got married in El Salvador or who are about to get married in El Salvador to participate in this thread :)

What are the formalities to get married in El Salvador? Is it the same for a couple of foreigners of for a mixed couple (between a foreigner and a native of El Salvador)?

Are the procedures complicated?

How long does it take to carry out all the formalities?

Thank you in advance for participating,
