Help- need simple beach ceremony on a budget

Recommended Posts

We are wanting to elope with just the 2 of us at the end of July or early Aug. The hotel packages are for large groups. We asked to bring in outdoor venders but they didnt seem to like the idea.

 

Are there any wedding planers with smaller packages?

We need a photographer thats not going to cost to much.

And a public beach that would be a good area.

Oh ok never mind then.... Try asking about "vow renewal" packages... Those are usually much smaller and a lot cheaper. U can get married I. The states right before u leave (like to do the legalities) and just do a symbolic ceremony on the beach!

The legal paper work to be married in another country was just crazy to us ... So someone suggested we do the "justice of the peace" here in the US before leaving n then having our destination wedding be a symbolic ceremony instead. Wasaayyyy cheaper and for paperwork purpose a lot easier! I heard horror stories about translations getting screwed up getting married in another country and it not bring legal.

Hi Tammy,

 

We've coordinated several small weddings and many for just the couple. There are plenty of affordable options for an intimate beach wedding in Playa del Carmen. The trick is avoiding "packages" and doing it "a la carte".

 

The legal paperwork is not at all complicated, you just need to be here at least 3 days in advance with your passports and have your blood work done.  A nurse is usually available to come to you. It's very quick. It does cost a little more than a non denominational ceremony though, and we do need to be sure a Justice of the Peace is available for you on your day.

 

There are many vendors to pick from and surely some in your budget for photography, flowers, etc.

 

Anything is possible!

 

Here are some of the elopements we have had the pleasure of planning: http://weddingsinplaya.com/eloping-in-playa-del-carmen/

We found the perfect place. Catalonia Riviera Maya resort and spa. Anyone looking if you stay at any of their resorts the wedding package for just the bride and groom is $280 simple beach set up, flowers, and romantic beach dinner after. You can also add on hair $45 and make up $45 if you want. you can use their photographer or bring one in for a $100 day pass. Their was I think $350 for your choice of pictures.
