        It appears, (and it makes sense), that most (if not all that I've found) Mexican churches are Catholic...any other non-denominational church/resort locations? Mexico? Caribbean?

          Hi Caroline,

          I just attended the DW of a good friend of mine. It was in Los Cabos, Mexico at the Dreams Reort (mentioned in an earlier reply). It was GORGEOUS and luxurious and had great service and not very expensive from a guest perspective (we paid $185/person/night for all-inclusive). It really was a top notch resort.

          There are just 2 issues that I think you should take into consideration:
          1. The ocean in that area is not swimmable. The tides are literally deadly. For a beach/ocean person, like me, that would be a major factor to condier.
          2. The sand is brutally harsh. It's very course and literally painful to your feet. The rehearsal dinner was on the sand and EVERYONE was complaining about their feet hurting. I can get cranky when I am uncomfortable, so the sand situation detered me from having as good a time as I could have.

          I'm not sure if this is true for all of Cabo, becuase we didn't leave the resort. But that's my 2 cents! Good luck in your planning!

            Welcome and congrats. You've come to the right place, the girls (and occassionally boys) on here will no doubt be able to point you in the right direction.

            Not sure if its the kind of thing you're looking for but Dreams Tulum in the Riviera maya has a cute, spanish style chapel on-site in the resort. Its non-denom (we are having our civil ceremony there.) You would arrange your minister of choice or judge with the wedding co-ordinator. Tons of info in the specific Dreams Tulum thread. Only prob may be your guest numbers, the chapel is very intimate and only seats 20!

            Good Luck with the decision.

              Hi-Congrats! We had our honeymoon at the Valentin in Playa Del Carmen. They had a GORGEOUS chapel!!!! I have pictures of it if you want to message me on the side and I can give you my email address! The only downfall of the resort is that it really wasn't that fun and isn't close to the town(which I love). But if you have a good group down there you will be fine! :) I hope this helps!

                Mhoudek- Please post the pics so that everyone can see the chapel at Valentine !

                It is a beautiful chapel but not traditional "church" chapel by any means. It's surrounded by a moat and is fairly open air.There are columns along the sides and back that are fairly close togther but you can still see out and others in. The entire structure is whlte. It's located in the center of the resort in a garden like setting.

                      There is a outside chapel on the resort of Moon Palace in Cancun. It has all the luxuries of being all inclusive.
