    Congrats and Welcome!


    We actually looked into that resort as well since we are also doing a Catholic ceremony. I did get in contact with them to ask some questions in the beginning, and they were very nice and helpful. Here are a couple slide shows of weddings photographed by Del Sol there. The first one is of a Catholic ceremony and the other is just in one of their gazebos. Maybe it will give you a good idea of what it could look like! 





    Just start by choosing your date and location! From there make a list of the people you want to invite and get the word out asap so people can start planning for your big day! Once you have that stuff, its just a process of checking small and big stuff off the list. You can make it as easy and simple or as elaborate as you want! Just don't stress your self out. I would suggest you get your Pre Cana out of the way as soon as you can. Depending on your diocese/parish, it can be quite time consuming. 


    Good luck with your planning! You will find lots of help and support here for anything you need!

              Well, thats the tough part! So basically in the eyes of the Catholic church when you get married in a Catholic ceremony/church you are married no matter WHERE it happened (under the Canon Law I believe). The legal part you do wherever you live. I don't know the process in Canada, but here we just go to the courthouse for the legal part! You might actually have to bring your paperwork of your legal marriage with you to Mexico for your ceremony....at least we do!


              Check out these websites:

                    I am booked for 5/11/13 for the chapel at the Gran Caribe and also plan on staying at the Royal. My fiancĀ© and I went for a site visit in June and it confirmed how perfect these resorts are for our wedding. We met with a wedding coordinator, did a food tasting, and saw quite a few weddings taking place. If you have any questions let me know.

                    33 adults (including bride & groom) and 3 kids booked!
