The WC really does nothing when it comes to booking the chapel at the Gran Caribe. Here is the email to the church itself. Monica has been really great at answering our questions. iglesiacristoresucitado@prodigy.net.mx

Hope this helps!

Girls there is also a chapel at the Valentin Imperial. We visitied in December and it's just so different but gorgeous. I would have definitely gone that route if they accepted children.

 

Does any one know of a local english speaking priest in the area?

 

We might be getting married at LaSalle Chapel (closer to Cancun) but we need a priest that speaks English.

 

 

Thanks!!

Ana

There is also a chapel shared by the Iberostar properties. It seats about 60 people. We are having our wedding at the Iberstar Paraiso Lindo and doing our ceremony there.

 

Here is a youtube link of someone who shot a video of it:

Love when I can find a video because there's only so much you can tell from a picture, ya know?

 

Totally off topic, but can anyone tell me where we start with the Catholic Church requirements? I know we have to do pre-Cana here and have our local priest send some sort of letter to the priest in Mexico, but that's about all I know. offtopic.gif

Hi all,

I too am having a catholic ceremony at Moon Palace on 2nd June in the Immaculate conception gazebo, the Priest Fr. Benedict has good written English so I think his English should be fine, he will be reading from a standard script so hopefully wont be too bad! I actually got a bit caught out as I’m from the UK I didn’t receive a contract so when the package information arrived it was only then I saw that catholic weddings in Mexico aren’t legal. This caught me by complete surprise – seen as thou Mexico is predominately catholic! Apparently most Mexicans have a big white catholic wedding (purely symbolic) and then shoot off to the civic offices to have a quick legal wedding before heading to the reception.

To get married in a catholic chapel you have to either get married civically before and then present your wedding certificate or sometimes they let you do it when you get home.

As I only found this out 6 weeks before we were due to fly out we have managed to work with the WC so that we have a civil wedding with the justice of the peace to get the legal bit out of the way then pay the extra 350 usd for a priest to be present and finish off with a blessing etc.

Before the priest in Mexico approved our wedding we needed to show him paperwork which stated we had completed our marriage classes here in the UK and then have our UK priest complete paperwork (freedom to marry / understand the faith / open to children and bringing them up as catholic) to sent to the diocese in UK to approve our marriage. This was then posted onto the diocese in Mexico. They like it if you have both been baptised and confirmed (i'm only baptised but H2B is both)

A bit long winded! Hope this helps some one you. BTW The Dreams Tulum chapel looks beautiful, it was my second choice after moon palace but I was a bit concerned by no air con. MP is child friendly for the ceremony too.

It's not that expensive. You have to put a downpayment when you reserve which is half the amount and pay the rest when you are there. I also had to pay the priest because he wasn't from that church. I found him. He just accepted a donation so I gave him $250US.

 

I had 80 people and we fit perfect. 2 columns and 10 rows in each column, with 4 people in each row.

 

Message me if you want more deets.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
