Yay! another Cancun bride!

Are you absolutely certain you need it? I think you need it if you were previously married. Check with the Mexican Embassy or Tourism Board to be sure. 

"Birth Certificates
[documents MUST be "Authenticated or Apostilled" in country of origin]
A Birth Certificate is NOT required for a groom if he has a valid passport. Birth Certificates are only required for the Bride if she is divorced and her passport is NOT in her maiden name. If a Bride’s passport is in her maiden name, her birth certificate is not required in Quintana Roo (Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, etc.). If a Birth Certificates is required, it will need to be certified and translated by an approved translator."

You could always get legally married in the states before you head down there.  That’s what we are doing.

Do you have passports.  These may be accepted in the place of birthcertificates.

And I know you stated that you DONT have them, but have you tried to get them?  Is it at all possible?  What kind of documentation do you have? Naturalization papers, green cards, something???
