Newbie - Advice on Wedding in Mexico

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I am engaged and working on trying to narrow down the date and location for my wedding for next year. My fiance and I would love to have the wedding in a nice beach location in Mexico that will not leave us in crazy debt. We would love for our wedding to be very classy, laid back and not too intense in regards to the planning involved.

 

Do any of you have any suggestions as to where we would consider having our wedding along some beautiful beach in Mexico? Also, the dates when the weather is just right is very important (I would hate to be caught in their storm/rainy season)?

 

If you know of any sites that are useful, please pass them along this way!

Hi Chocolat. I just got married in Cabo at the Cabo Surf hotel. For a non-all-inclusive resort in Mexico it was very reasonable and just beautiful. you can check out some photos here:

I'm a Las Caletas bride as well, and it's a great option - something different than a resort wedding if you're looking for that. There are so many great options out there - maybe you can tell us more about what you're looking for, here are some thikngs to think about ...

 

1) where all of your guests will be coming from

2) how big of a group will you have

3) All Inclusive or not

4) wedding and ceremony on teh beach, or in a gazebo, or a lawn?

5) what's your general budget

6) time of year you're looking to get married (end of June starts the rainy season in Puerto Vallarta, goes until the Fall, maybe Sept, i'd have to check)

Welcome! Coming from LA, I'd say that your most economical bet would be Cabo. There are plenty of brides that will give you A TON of information! I'm sure you'll find everything you're looking for right here.

Congrats on the upcoming wedding! We went to Riviera Maya/Cancun and stayed at Moon Palace. The beach was beautiful and the water... ahh amazing! However if you want a small resort I wouldn't recomment Moon Palace... it's huge. But the service, rooms, food, staff, everything is amazing there!

 

Good luck with the planning!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
