    For all brides looking to have a catholic destination wedding, look no further and book your stay at the Grand Palladium. I did a lot of research online, and found the chapel ( Nuestra senora de las nieves) on the Grand Palladium property by far the most breathtaking chapel in any resort within the Cancun and Maya Riviera surroundings. Our coordinator Erika was amazing, her entire wedding staff were true professionals and took care of every detail.


    All you need to get married here is a letter from your priest granting permission to get married within the Catholic church and a certificate of completion for the premarriage course. My fiance and I, attend church every Sunday, so getting the letter was no problem. And we attended a weekend course of engaged encounters back in Toronto.

      Awesome, thanks for sharing!  We're getting married at Nuestra Senora Del Carmen in Playa Del Carmen and it absolutely took my breath away when we visited.  I am SO excited!  Go Catholics!

          Wow your pictures look amazing!!!  I've been searching for a destination wedding that could not only accommodate a catholic ceremony but also on the resort property.  I was just wondering about safety measures....maybe I'm being paranoid, but did you have any concerns about travelling to Mexico?  I checked the Travel advisory on the DFAIT website and the concern seems to be more so for those who travel through the US by vehicle.  Thoughts?

            Hi cris, sorry for the delayed response. I don't check this account too often. After doing a lot of research it seemed that we were very limited to either Mexico, Cuba, and Dominican if we wanted a catholic wedding. Visiting all three countries, I would say Mexico by far had the superior resorts which would accommodate and please all 50 of our guests. Not to say that Mexico didn't have it challenges in convincing our family and friends to come. Mexico was in the news often leading up to our wedding with a lot of negative press. Our guest definitely had their concerns about the drugs and violence. However, doing a little online research, I found that all the crazy stuff we heard on the new was by the U.S-Mexico borders. We got married in Mayan riviera , which was thousands of miles away from there. It's unfortunate that Mexico as whole has to get such a bad rep because of those areas. Not sure where your group is traveling from, but I would definitely avoid border crossing by car. Our entire group was from Toronto, so we all pretty much flew to cancan and took a transfer bus to grand palladium resort. 


            Safety was definitely not an issue once we got to the resort. They have a lot of security, just to get in the resort, not just anyone can come in. All of our guests had such an amazing time. Even the most skeptic of our family and friends who insisted in staying in the resort for the entire week ventured out. A lot of them took the public transportation and visited playa del Carmen, a near by town. A lot of our guests also left the resort to check out the ruins.


            I would definitely go back to Mayan riviera for a vacation, especially since last time I was too busy with all the wedding chaos. Hopefully this gives you a better insight of Mexico! 

            Good luck with the wedding planning :)

                Love your pictures!  Been thinking of getting married there as well.  I was wondering how was the reception area, and was there music provided for your party?

                  Hello everyone!

                  Yes! ... There are several hotels with Catholic Chapels on site and also there are private locations with their Catholic Chapel as well along the Rivera Maya.  The process to get married is not that difficult since the Catholic Church is very well organized all around the world and there are also english speaking Priests in the area.


                  Happy planning!

                    I am very interested in Grand Palladium.  I was wondering how much did your guests pay for their stay and did you get a travel agent in Canada?
