    Hi everyone - I'm a long time lurker on BDW and just got engaged this weekend so I've finally joined.

     

    I've been checking out what other people have done and am pretty sure I want to get married off-site in a Catholic church and have a reception at a Beach Club in Playa del Carmen area.  I think I'd want to stay at an all-inclusive resort though, just so I can party and spend a lot of time with everyone who comes. 

     

    Has anyone done that?  Where have other people stayed who have gotten married off-resorts?

     

    Thanks!

    Hello!

    I am having a wedding at my resort but my videographer had actually filmed a wedding outside. They were an Italian couple and got married at Capilla Nuestra Se±ora del Carmen (Chapper Our Lady del Carmen, will be the translation).

     

    Maybe you could contact him or try to speak directly with the council for a wedding at this chapel. Here you can watch the video:

      I am staying at the RIU Palace in Punta Cana, but we are having our ceremony and reception at a  awesome little restaurant next door called Kukua Beach Club. it is literally a one minute walk and yet has such a more intimate feeling, since we are only having 15 guests (including bride and groom) i felt the resort would be less fun. Also this give everyone a chance to eat and drink outside of the resort! i am so excited about it!

        Hi LukyJ, welcome to the Forum and Congrats on your engagement,

         

        The Riviera Maya is a gorgeous area to get married.

         

        There is plenty of beautiful All inclusive resorts in Playacar area or along the highway out of Playa del Carmen which are not too far from the center and the famous 5th Avenue.

         

        Right at the beginning of 5th Avenue, which is only one block from the Playacar entrance is a little catholic chapel.

         

        The area offers also a wide range of Off resort locations. If you like i can send you the whole list that offers privacy together with all the general information there is to know about each one.
