Jewish weddings at riviera maya resorts??

Recommended Posts

Question - for anyone who is or has gotten married in MX and had a jewish ceremony - what did you do about the Chuppah?

Our location is a Gazebo but not technically a Chuppah. any info would be helpful!

Most resorts I see have a standard structure they use, that is often used as a chuppah. Have you checked with your coordinator to see what they can do?

In a pinch - Walmart sells lightweight curtain rods. Buy 4. You can bring a tallis, or any piece of material, should be 6' x 6', or maybe a little less, and bring lots of tape. You can tape the material to the rods (which pack nicely in any suitcase) and voila - you have a hand held chuppah. It's a nice way to honor 4 guests. by asking them to hold it.

 

Otherwise, as long as the gazebo is open on the sides, that is also your chuppah. I've been very "creative" quite often!

we just got back from a trip down and we are using the gazebo :) my Rabbi wants us to make sure there is also a sheet over our heads - not just the wood - so we explained that to her and we are good to go :) in case of rain, they have have a make shirt chuppah made of bamboo that we are going to use.

 

love to check things off the list!

Hi everyone!

I would like to offer a recommendation of resorts, if you are considering Riviera Maya for your wedding.

 

I just returned from my 4th wedding at Iberostar, Paraiso Maya, and it is truly the best.  Lily, the head WC is absolutely amazing.  She makes you feel like you are the most important family on the property, and she goes way above and beyond to make your wedding dreams come true.

 

Lily has been on top of every detail, and she is friendly, happy, and eager to please.  The food there is amazing, and they have a beautiful chuppah and she understands all the Jewish traditions.  I highly recommend the venue!

Enjoy!
