Is it possible to get married at Mayan ruins?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I know this sounds crazy...but my sister just did a beach wedding and I don't want to repeat that, and my fiancee and I both love Mexico so much, especially the culture. We have been there many times and have visited almost all of the Mayan ruins around the peninsula inc. Chichen-Itza, Coba, Uxmal, Palenque (in Chiapas).

 

I know you can get married in a national park in the US, but can you get married at one of the Mayan ruins sites? It is really hard getting info on this, and of course, we would not want to harm the environment of the zone in any way while we had the ceremony. But the more I think about this, the more it seems right up our alley! Any leads?

That sounds awesome! I am looking but cant find any info either. I am sure someone on here will find something. Maybe a WC in the area would know the answer for you.

I don't think you are allowed. HOWEVER, I know that Sol and Matt photograph at a ruins site in Playa Del Carmen which isn't really a national park. Therefore I'm sure you'd be able to have it there. It's more jungle ruins... but it's beautiful. It would remind me of Elizabeth Medina's photos of a wedding in a jungle ruin area. I think it was her at least!

 

*Update... yup, it's Medina's photos that I love! If you go to her blog it's on the second page... "Hacienda Uayamon, Destination Wedding Photography in Campeche, Mexico"

 

This is the resort and wedding location... The Haciendas: Hacienda Uayamon

I think you can get married at Xcaret Park. Its right next to the Occidental Resort which is pretty nice depending on your taste. Thats where we got engaged and we had a great time. You also get free entrance with your stay. I'm not sure where you would get married there though.

You're not even supposed to do professional photos at places like Tulum, etc.

 

Our photog said that it is against the law to use the ruins as a "stage" for something (his words).

I get it, it does seem a bit disrespectful if you think about what they mean.

It's not RM but in PV Las Caletas has a replica pyramid in the jungle that they do weddings at if you decide you really want to do the pyramid thing. Good luck :)

I don't know if you are interested in going elsewhere, but Belize has Mayan ruins. I have been there a lot and know people I could check with. You could really have a lot of awesome places there to do something different. I could think of some really cool places just off the top of my head. Feel free to contact me if you want to know more.

My thoughts exactly. Something about it does not sit right with me.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
