Catholic vows on the beach?

Recommended Posts

I know the Catholic church will not perform a Catholic wedding on the beach sad.gif , and I just asked my WC, Maye, if a Catholic priest will come to the site to at least bless us. She said no, priests do not go outside of the church to do that. So now I'm wondering if we can we say Catholic vows on the beach?

I am going to say no, because the officiant would not be able to perform that type of ceremony

I guess, deep down inside, I had a feeling that would be the answer.

from what I know of the other catholic girls on the forum, most have gotten married in the states in their own church and had a symbolic ceremony in Cabo. I know that a few have found places in Mexico to have catholic ceremonies. Edyta got married in a church in Cabo I believe. I know in Cancun there is an outdoor place that you can get married, so maybe Cabo has something. Just no beach for sure.

You cannot have a Catholic ceremony of any kind of the beach, which I think is silly, and I really wanted to do this, too.

We are bringing my mother's pastor down perform a religious ceremony on the beach, but it will not be Catholic.

Good luck!

No go for any outdoor Catholic wedding in PV - maybe Cabo is different but I'd be surprised if anywhere in Mexico you can have a valid Catholic ceremony on the beach. Even in the US it's damn difficult, not impossible, but you basically have to know a renegade priest to pull it off outside of a church/chapel.

 

We did a Catholic ceremony in the Bay Area after our Mexico wedding. I'd be happy to help if you have any questions....I am very familiar with the procedures.

I'm Catholic too and unable to have a Catholic wedding at all since my FI was married in the Catholic church before. So sad!

At Moon Palace in Cancun they offer a Catholic Wedding Package - it is $810 extra - it takes place in a gazebo overlooking the ocean - you just have to have your priest give the ok that you get married in a different parish. We were going to do that which is why we booked at MP but then we decided it would be just as easy to get married w/ the free package and have our priest bless the marriage when we got back - more $$ for the honeymoon I guess :)

Leia - please keep us posted as to what solution you find. This is a question we've asked many of our friends, but have yet to find any definite solution.

 

thanks

no matter what location you are, regardless of country or city, you cannot have a catholic ceremony outside of a catholic church or chapel. we're in the process of trying to book the catholic church in san jose del cabo, but have sort of a backup plan with a renegade priest who also happens to be an extended family member of my FI's, who we would have to fly in. it's a pain in the butt, but we're both catholic and we want to do it right...

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
