Has anyone had a catholic cermony in Cancun? Where did you do it? Was it in the church or do catholic priests EVER do ceremonies in gazebos or outside of the church?

 

I really want to have a ceremony in a gazebo with an ocean view at sunset. My mom really would love me to have a catholic ceremony so I want to make her happy in that area but I don't love the idea of geting married inside a church. I feel like a catholic ceremony in a gazebo is a good compromise.

 

I read online that the Marriott in the hotel zone is the only hotel authorized by the catholic church to perform catholic ceremonies in a gazebo. When I called them they told me they were still "negotiating" with the catholic church. Then I called back and they told me that I can do the ceremony in the gazebo but I have to get a priest on my own to agree to it. So now I'm confused and frustrated...has anyone else run into this?

 

How in the world would I get a catholic priest to agree to that? I wouldn't even know where to start?

Have you looked into the Gran Caribe? They have a chapel which is surrounded by glass so your views are completely of the ocean. They provide you with a english speaking priest and it's the next best thing to a gazebo. I was just there last week to look at it and it's beautiful. I have pics I can show you if your interested...just send me your e-mail and I'll forward them to you. Also check out Real Resorts Mexico|Real Resorts Cancun| Real Resorts Playa del Carmen|Luxury Hotels in Mexico and click on weddings. They have some pics there also.

These are not in Cancun, but south. Dreams Tulum has a small wedding chappel and does Catholic Ceremonies, but is quite a ways from Cancun. The Grand Palladium Resorts in Riviera Maya have a new Chappel, that does Catholic Weddings, bigger than Dreams Tulum, and it is very open as in the sides are almost nonexsistent, but I don't think it has an ocean view. Main Wedding Page. At the top of that page there's a view the new chappel link. If you can't get the link to work google Palladium Addicts - and you should find the site. I know of NO locations where you can have a catholic ceremony outdoors.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
