    Name: Yrish Cathe pronounced (Irish Kate!) :)
    Wedding Date: 10-10-10!!!
    Wedding location: TENTATIVE but looking into Riviera Maya, MEXICO

    Hi Everyone, I just joined today and I need some help. I want to plan a destination wedding to be set on October 10,2010. I want a nice small intimate wedding but I want the ceremony to be held in a Catholic Church. I want to be able to charter a boat to get to our island. Any ideas?!?! I'm looking into Mexico since I know the country is predominantly CAtholic. Any other islands with beautiful churches or cathedrals?? Please help. Thanks so much.

        Howdy, Yrish Cathe!

        I guess I don't entirely understand what you're looking for. I know there are probably lots of places in MX that have Catholic churches, but I'm not sure I understand the part about the charter boat. Are you talking, like - a party boat type thing?

        Have you ever thought about Puerto Rico? I'm not sure of the denomination, but there are lovely churches there. You could check that out. :)

        Good luck and happy planning. :)

          Hi Yrish!

          You should look into Playa del Carmen or Isla Mujeres. The water is beautiful and I know you can take a boat to Isla Mujeres from Cancun or some other close locations. Good luck with the planning!! I'm going to Cabo :)

              Slightly confused because Mexico (Riviera Maya) is not an island. Cozumel is if that's what you mean about the boat? If you do a search on this forum for catholic ceremonies you will find different resorts with churches available. The Royal resort in Playa del Carmen has a glass walled church where they can hold Catholic ceremonies. You could look into that, I've heard lots of good things about that particular resort.

                      Thanks so much everyone. I wanted to do a Catholic church outside of a resort as the ones in the resorts are mostly chapels. SO I guess I was looking into someone's forum where the bride actually had to get into a boat to get to the ceremony somewhere in the Riviera Maya. ANy ideas about resorts I'm considering Barcelo Maya, Grand Riviera Princess, and or Grand Velas? Want a beach reception... Thanks everyone!
