Newly engaged Looking in Cancun for June 2013

Recommended Posts

Hello my name is Melissa Reyes and my fiance Edwin proposed to me on July 7 and ever since then I have been working hard looking for a location for my wedding. We have finally narrowed it down to Cancun and to the last two weeks of June. So any help and suggestions will be appreciated. We went last May to Cozumel with 20 of our closes friends and family to celebrate my Dads 60Th Birthday and it was then my fiance and I decided that if we ever got married we would do a destination wedding since we had the most amazing time ever in Cozumel. When we got home he started planning and searching for the ring to propose to me, as I have been told. We have just started planning our destination wedding but already have encounter two challenges. First, we are so grateful to a friend who has allowed us to use his timeshares for 25 of our guest and ourselves at the the Park Royal Cancun. We stayed at there other location in Cozumel and it was so great. So we just can't beat price that his timeshare provides but the problem is they have no wedding service so we need to find a location that does not require our guest to stay their to use their wedding service. The second problem is that I would like a Catholic wedding but I have been told that in Cancun and in all of Mexico does not allow you to get married by the Church without the Confirmation sacrament which my fiance does not have and would take a year in a half to 2 years to get. However, in my parish back home my priest tells me this is only in Mexico that we can get married by the church here back home with no problem. I have not been able to find any church to give us our marriage sacrament in Cancun without the confirmation sacrament. So any help and suggest I would truly appreciate.

Hi Melissa, Congrats on your engagement (especially on Cozumel, where we live).


You might consider having the Catholic wedding in the U.S. and a symbolic beach wedding in Mexico. That might simplify things for you.


Good luck,

    • 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.
