Getting married in Mexico!
Posted 01 October 2009 - 04:23 PM
I got engaged in late August, and am just starting to plan for my wedding. We're hoping to having it in Cancun or Playa del Carmen, in late 2010. (Probably early Dec.) We're both from the Chicago area.
My fiance wants a Catholic ceremony AND for it to be legal, as well. (Picky, picky .. I am much more laid-back!.. Ha.) So this will result in some complications.
We are leaning toward Cancun at the moment, because I found this awesome Catholic waterfront chapel at Real Gran Caribe... there is absolutely nothing else like it. However, I'm not crazy about getting married in Cancun... I'd prefer Riv. Maya. I may just have to get over it.
Secondly, we are looking to combine both the civil AND religious ceremony into one, knowing we'll have to pay a bit more for a judge. I'd prefer to get married in the States beforehand, but he wants it to be real and authentic.
Anyway, any advice or tips, feel free to share! Thanks,

We are also doing a legal ceremony (I'm the one who cares though, not FI). You will find a tonne of great info. here and have other ideas for venues, but I know that the Grand Palladium in the Mayan has a chapel that is new. My wedding is at the Palladium in May, (not using the chapel) but I hear it is very nice.
