Is anyone getting married/got married at Our Lady Guadalupe Church

Recommended Posts

Hi Girls!! For those of those who are intersted Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe is completely gorgeous. FI and I went down this past January for a site visit. We were between Riviera Maya and Puerto Vallarta. While we were down there we reserved our date at this church for 11/13/2010. We decided to have our wedding in Riviera Maya a few months ago and somehow forgot to cancel our date with Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe. Anyhow - we called them last week so the date is now open for anyone who was looking to get married there on that date. The church is just breathtaking and perfect. You are all going to have an amazing ceremony!

Who have you been talking to? Our date was locked due to another wedding but we really wanted to get married at the Xcaret chapel so we shifted everything one day. We really are so in love with the chapel so we shifted a few things around.. The person I talked to is an event manager there her name is Aura. Let me know if you want her contact info.

I am a little worried that my expierence has been too easy and when I call back I am in for a surprise.  My mom called for me since she speaks spanish much better than I do.  The woman she spoke with in the church put our date on hold and just wants me to call back with the information from my priest and where I will be taking the pre-cana classes at.  My priest seems to be familiar with this process and already filled out all of our paperwork in spanish for the church in PV and is getting the OK from the archdioses here for us to be married in Mexico. 

 

My concern is going to be that we only speak English, but half my family speaks only english and half speaks only spanish.

 

Has anyone gotten married in the church who was not Catholic.  I am Catholic but my FI is Lutheran I am hoping this does not cause a problem.

I would check with your priest and call the church in Mexico to make sure this is not a problem. As far as I know you both have to be Catholic and have gone through all your sacraments in order to have a Catholic ceremony.

Thanks Mrs. M.  It is fine with my parish and priest and there is just a form that I had to sign stating that I intend to remain Catholic and raise my children Catholic, he is also getting the OK from the Archdiocese .  My priest is going to contact them to find out if the church and Archdiocese in Mexico will also OK it. 

 

Just wanted to see if anyone else has done this since I know the Catholic Churches in Mexico are stricter.

Father Estheban offered us to have the mass either Spanish, English or Spanglish a little of both. I hope it helps. I haven't had any problems either.

Thanks for the info.  I spoke with Father Estaban and he also told me that the mass could be in Spanish or English or both.  So far so good with the planning.

Did anyone have a mass earlier than 4pm?  I am worried about the logistics of getting to our reception location and having enough time before sunsets.  We will hopefully be taking most pictures before the ceremony.

Hey everyone,

 

My fiancé and I would like to get married in this church as I grew up travelling to Vallarta and attending mass here.

 

The glitch is while I am catholic my fiancé is Anglican. From my research , I believe we need permission from our priest here which we can arrange . Can anyone else speak to this type of situation? Or your experiences in being married here?

 

Thanks!

 

Chelsea

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
