Destination Location with a chapel, beach, fun, and history? - HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

Caroline here. Just got engaged over the Memorial day weekend and only thing we know is that we want a destination wedding!

 

I've always wanted to get married in a church - older churches with high ceilings, stained glass, etc.; but my fiance desires a simpler destination wedding on a beach (or mountain tops, etc.). We both want the destination ceremony to be a big vacation for our close friends and family, and since we are responsible for paying for the wedding part, we want to be "cost effective"...

 

Can you recommend any resorts/beaches/destinations that have a local church where we might be able to hold a ceremony then hold a reception at a resort? I no longer seek a big church, it'd be preferred, but I wouldn't mind a smaller, cute church...

 

We are also looking for a location where the guests could have many things to do, and not just get stuck inside the resort and be confined to just water sports...

 

Thanks so much and hope to hear from you soon!

Welcome to the forum Caroline.

I know you can find some nice churches in Costa Rica and Mexico. I am some will be able to provide more info. Costa Rica also offers a huge number of day trips to volcanos and rain forests. Quite spectacular.

Welcome to BDW :0) A couple of beautiful churches down south that come to my mind are the catholic church in Puerto vallarta and the church in Los Cabos. There are plenty of photos of each throughout the mexico section of the forum so be sure to do a search and check them out :0)

 

Congratulations on your recent engagement, DW's rock!

Thanks ladies for the suggestions!

I guess I should mention that we are looking for a non-denominational or a protestant wedding...

El Dorado Royale in Riviera Maya, Mexico has a beautiful beachside chapel that is non denominational. It's an adult only all inclusive resort but there is a lot to do both onsite and off!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
