Wedding ceremony locations in Playa- non-catholic

Recommended Posts

Thanks in advance for your help!

We were planning on getting married in one of the catholic churches in playa (he is catholic, I am some combination of methodist/episcopalian) but just found out that I will need an annulment to get married in the church (I was previously married and divorced 5 years ago to another non-catholic- don't get me started).  A religious ceremony in a church/chapel is very important to us but as the annulment process can take 1-2 years and we are both 35+ and want children (the clock is literally ticking!) we want to get married next year and will deal with the annulment/convalidation at a later date.

 

I found an episcopalian priest in Cancun but I am having a really hard time finding a church or chapel in PDC for a non-catholic wedding.  I feel like this is a very stupid question but can non-catholic weddings be performed at any of the catholic churches/chapels?

 

We do not want to get married on a beach.  It's just not for us : )

 

Does anyone have ideas or advice?  Or should we suck it up an wait out the annulment?  Please help!

 

Thank you!

Hi Penelopee,

 

We've seen Coptic Orthodox Ceremonies take place in a couple of local Chapels, and I actually think these 2 are the most flexible ones:

 

Capilla Nuestra Senora del Carmen (on 5th Ave, Playa del Carmen, MX)

Tel: +52 (984) 873.0188

Iglesia de San Jose (downtown, Puerto Morelos, MX)

Tel: +52 (998) 898.8252

Hi there Penelopeee and welcome to the forum! There are many alternatives in this area if you are not set on a church setting! Have you taken a look at places like Taninah (a jungle retreat). Or a Mayan ceremony in a cenote can be a very unique and spiritual way to celebrate your union!

Hello Penolopeee,

You should try at the San Francisco de Asis Church at Xcaret, I am sure you will be able to get married there.

Happy planning!
