All-Inclusive Resorts for Same Sex Wedding / Commitment Ceremony?

I made the mistaken of getting a bit too attached to Dreams Tulum before finding out they do not do same-sex ceremonies.  They suggested Secrets Capri in Cancun, so you might check that out.


For me, it's unlikely, because I can't get past the idea of Cancun being a place full of drunken spring break kids.  Surely, it's not that way the rest of the year, but that is where my brain goes when I hear the word Cancun, and it bothers me to think of guests feeling the same way when they receive their invitations.  (I suppose those getting married in Vegas face the same issue.)  Silly, maybe, but I'm not sure I can get past it. 


Still searching for the perfect place.

Hello ladies, 


As a LGBT Friendly, I have to say there are tons of all inclusive resorts and other non resorts locations in the Riviera Maya that welcomes every couple. Playa Del Carmen has become one of the best Gay Weddings Destinations in mexico Feel free to PM me, with any questions you may have and I will be happy to assist you.


I am a person who truly wants to do the right thing, someone who believes in equality, and wants to treat my same-sex couple clients with the respect that all couples deserve.

I am writing a thesis for my university of tourism, focusing on same-sex destination weddings in Mexico, with as a target group the US.


Did you get married in Mexico? Or are you planning to get married soon? Are you in the middle of the process? Are you a wedding planner? Anyone that has knowledge about gay marriage in general? I am looking to do skype interviews in order to gain information for my thesis. would you like to help me? I would be very happy if someone could help me by sharing your experiences!


Thank you in advance.

We often have inquiry's and questions about this topic so we just wanted to update the thread.


The 1st one was at Playacar Palace and Adventure Spa Palace, the ceremony was at Adventure Spa because it is the Adult only resort in the Palace chain that would allow the client to have the ceremony. The group stayed at the Playacar Palace because the Adventure does not have a beach but a quick shuttle made it all easy. 
Our 2nd was at Now Jade Resort, the Ceremony and reception where at the property in Puerto Morelos. http://www.photosincancun.com/same-sex-commitment-ceremony-in-mexico/


We would be happy to help you in search of a gay friendly hotel, Now Jade and Mayakoba are family friendly and gay friendly as there are many others too.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
