Any ideas on All-Inclusive resorts with onsite Catholic Chapel?

Recommended Posts

I got married at the Valentin Imperial May May 8, 2009 and chose this hotel on the fact that it had a beautiful onsite wedding chapel! The resort is just the perfect size for a destination wedding: not too small for your guests to be bored, and not too big for your guest to get lost from one another. The service is amazing. Perfect location in between Cancun and Playa del Carmen so your guests can do the party thing in Cancun (if they want) or choose to go for a stroll in Playa Del Carmen which is only 10 min away.

 

Feel free to check out my wedding pics as our photographer (Del Sol Photography) took many photos during the ceremony as it was a catholic ceremony with all the trimmings.

 

Good luck in your search! Im sure no matter where you choose, it will be a beautiful wedding!!!

Graciela your wedding looked amazing. The valentin was our first choice but they don't accept children and we have 3 flower girls.

 

Ivan do you have any pics of the iberostar paraiso chapel?

 

Thanks!!

sorry for the duplicate posts. I can't see the edit button on the past 3 now for some reason. I did this from my blackberry this morning and it kept telling me that my comments did not post and that there was an error but I guess all my 3 attempts did work.

I was told the best time to do a catholic ceremony is 3:00 so there is enough time for pictures afterward before the sun goes down. My concern is that will leave a LOT of time until the reception starts. Are you doing a cocktail hour afterwards? Or leaving guests to their own devices while you take pictures?

Another question: Are you doing the "legal" wedding at home first? We are considering this, but I wasn't sure if that would affect the whole Pre-Cana and Catholic wedding requirements if we're already legally married?
We actually did a 5:00 ceremony that started late so it was really 5:30. It depends on the time of year as well...we went to the internet to the projected sunset times and went from there.
We did the legal (civil) ceremony and the paper work is expected in 4 months. If you do it at home...then it's just a blessing ceremony. Either way it was beautiful. No air conditioning though.

We are visiting this chapel at the end of May. We would be having our ceremony at around 3pm also....was it really hot for you guys at that time? I had no idea there was no AC in there...
