I am trying to have a Catholic wedding in Cancun, Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen or Tulum. I do not have to do it at a resort. I saw only a few hotels have the Catholic chapels. I was thinking of maybe doing the wedding in a chapel or church and then having the reception at a club or restaurant. Has anyone done or looked into this? I know it would depend on various things. I believe we will have about 20-30 guests. I do want a nice atmosphere and I'd like the reception to be near or on the ocean. At the same time, I do not have $6,000.00 to throw a wedding for such few guests. Any thoughts?
I saw Xcaret also holds weddings and receptions. Does anyone know their costs and if their receptions are private? I've been there before and the place was a zoo. So many people. I'm fine with others being able to view the ceremony, but I do not want the reception to be an open buffet that we share with 100 other people.
