Any Catholic Ceremony Brides Out There??

Recommended Posts

I have done a search on this - but most of the threads are specific to a destination and we are not sure where we are going just yet.....

 

Right now, we have decided that we want to have our actual wedding on or near a beach or a cliff overlooking the beach. We discussed getting married at home and then having the ceremony away, but we really want to see if we can do it all away. Each country has it's own rules and regulations, but with that being said....

 

For those of you that have had or are going to have a destination Catholic Ceremony - where did you get married and whyhuh.gif??

 

I really wanted Alto Vista in Aruba - but it turns out they do not do weddings. <sigh> . We have been looking at a few places in Mexico, but the resorts seemed super expensive for our guests in this economy (for AI that is - 250 per person per night)

 

Anyway - any help or advice is mucho mucho appreciated!

 

smooches! smile03.gif

Hi there,

 

I am having a Catholic wedding in a church in La Romana, DR - its called altos de chavon. The church is located on a hilltop. It was hard to find exactly what I wanted but once I saw this place I knew it was it. I am not sure about other countries I only looked in DR at an option. I copied this from an old post online when I was searching for a ceremony location - maybe it will help you:

 

She also shares information on other Catholic churches available in La Romana and nearby areas:

- Santa Rosa de Lima -located right in front of the city's main park-

- San Antonio de Padua -in Buena Vista Norte, 5 minutes from the City of La Romana and approximately 15 minutes from St. Stanislaus Church in Altos de Chavòn.

- There is also another colourful church in the town Bayahibe -approx. 30 minutes from La Romana, overlooking a beautiful beach.

- In the city of Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic, there are various Catholic churches, many of them located in the beautiful colonial zone.

I am getting married in the gazebo at the Grand Palladium in Punta Cana and having a catholic ceremony. According to the diocese, they don't allow ceremonies on the beach, but, if you can find a gazebo that's pretty close, that is allowed (I found the logic funny too).

We are getting married at the Iberostar Punta Cana and we are also getting married in a gazebo close to the beach, but not actually on the beach.

We are doing a Catholic Ceremony at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Puerto Vallarta...it is a big old Cathedral right in the middle of downtown. I'm excited to have the ceremony in the Church and then the reception on the beach at Dreams in PV!

 

Let me know if you have any questions

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
