We ended up doing the counseling sessions...
Documents required for Catholic weddings: Home address and occupations (bride & groom) Couples must make arrangements at least six months prior to the date of marriage and meet all sacramental requirements. The Catholic Church makes certain requests of the bride and groom to help the couple with their spiritual preparation. There is no uniform set of rules for all catholic wedding preparations. Therefore, please check with your local parish priest to find out what your dioceses requires for Catholic weddings. Once all requirements have been completed, your local church needs to send these documents directly to the following address and send us a copy for our records: Padre Benito Aguilar Blvd Kukulcan KM 3.5 Zona Hotelera 77500 Cancun Q.Roo (998)8493003 email@example.com Important: The priest has final say on granting official permission for the wedding to move forward after seeing the paperwork. Palace Resorts does not have authority over religious regulations. (NO EXCEPTIONS). Bride and Groom must arrive in Cancun at least three (3) working days (Monday â€“Saturday) prior to the wedding ceremony to meet with the wedding coordinator and submit all documents. Bride & Groom must be at the resort by check-in time (3:00 PM) or earlier in order to consider day of arrival. The above refers to a couple that has never been married previously. Please take with you to the resort your marriage certificate or marriage license. If you have been divorced and your marriage was not officially annulled you cannot marry in the Catholic Church. Catholic weddings in Mexico are not legally binding. All couples must be civilly married prior to the Catholic ceremony. Please inform your wedding coordinator if you are interested in one of our civil wedding packages. Additional charges may apply. All weddings will be performed in either Spanish or English. All documents become the property of the Immaculate Conception Chapel, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Reservations should be made at least 6 months in advance to guarantee preferred wedding date. Hope that helps!!
