Moon Palace -Catholic Ceremony

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

It's my first time logging on to Best Destination Weddings... but I'm a long time creeper. We don't have a wedding date set yet, but I am interested in finding out more information on the Catholic Ceremony at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun.

 

Tara!

I just booked the Moon Palace today for April of next year. We are planning on doing a catholic ceremony. They haven't told us any of the requirments yet but from what I have googled you have to get some paperwork for your parish. i think the chapel is the prettiest gazebo at MP and. In my opinion, the pews make it look really beautiful.

I am having a Catholic wedding at MP as well. In fact I am doing the Pre-Cana at my local parish this weekend. You then have to provide the priest in Mexico with the paper work that you completed this.

 

One thing to note with the Catholic wedding in Mexico, it is not a legal ceremony. You have to be married legally prior in your home country and bring the paperwork with you in order to have the Catholic wedding. Otherwise the priest will not marry you. We checked to see if we could do the legal part later and the answer was no. You need to be married before to even have the ceremony.

Hi Everyone! Thanks for the input -- I don't know what any of us would do without this website!

 

alison15 - that's very interesting about having to be married legally before you go down to Mexico... I had no idea! How are you guys doing it? By your parish preist or by a JP?

Darksparkles, I guess it depends on availability and how our priest feels about the wedding down there. We have pre-cana this weekend so I guess we will find out. I don't want the wedding down there to just be symbolic so if it could count as our real Catholic wedding since it won't be our legal one then we will just go to a JP. Or it may just be easier to have our priest do it the weekend before.

 

I joked with my FI that this way we have two anniversaries so if he misses the first one, he can try to remember the second one.

You can get married legally at MP before you have a Catholic ceremony.  It's just an option if you didnt want to have two weddind dates.  We were going to have a Catholic wedding but we picked a date you aren't allowed to.  There is just more paperwork involved.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
