    We plan on having a destination wedding in Riviera Maya in June 2010. We would like to have the ceremony in a near-by church. Is anyone else doing the same?

      Have you decided where you are having the wedding?

          If you don't mind me asking, I'm also looking for the same thing -
          what made you choose to have it in a seperate local church rather than find a resort w/ a chapel that can hold a catholic wedding such as the El Dorado Royale?

          Thanks!

            Ohhh no prob. At first thats what I wanted... a resort with a chapel, but after months of research... I couldn't find anything that could accomodate all of our needs. For instance, El Dorado Royale is really nice, but its Adults-only. I'm having a large amount of guests coming that will be bringing their children to make a family vacation out of it.

            Have you looked into any others? I don't know if this fits your needs, but Dreams Tulum has a beautiful small chapel on their grounds. I went there last yr for a friends wedding and the place looked beautiful... very hacienda style. The food was not that great, but theres always going to be something

            Have you looked into any local churches?

              Im getting married this December in the Riviera Maya, and we are going to have our catholic ceremony at the Xcaret chapel. I saw another post of yours about transporting guests from the hotel to the chapel and I am working those details out right now! I will be sure to let you know who we go with and how it works out.

                I was looking at photos from an Xcarat wedding last night and it looked AMAZING.
                are you allowing your guests to stay at whichever hotel they please, also where are you planning your reception, also at Xcarat?

                  Thanks Ashley! That would be great! Xcaret chapel is in Playa de Carmen?? How did you contact the priest/church there?

                  Keep me posted with the transportation arrangements

                    Sorry, been MIA for a while. Yea, Xcaret is gorgeous. To have a reception there can cost some serious cash but we are just having our ceremony there. All of my guests will be staying at the same hotel (I didn't really give an option-on my wedding website I just put the hotel info and the cost per person). The people at Xcaret just gave me Father Bernard Quinn's contact info and I emailed him, and my mother called him...he is really slow in responding to emails but my mom was able to get a hold of him over the phone right away. I am have a REALLY hard time trying to coordinate the church's availability with the Priests availability. I wanted to contact a different priest but they said Father Bernard Quinn was the only info they had for an English speaking priest, but I read on here that there is another one. Just not sure if they all perform ceremonies at any church.

                      When are you planning your wedding for?

                      Could you please give me his information? Do you have any pictures of the church? That would help me out soo much :)
