Thinking About Getting Married in the Beautiful Mexican Caribbean?

by Lucy Gallagher, Yucatan Weddings  (Oct. 2013)

Finding the venue that fits your needs is probably the most important part of the wedding planning process. Before you set your mind to a specific venue, consider the following:

  • How many guests do you intend to invite and does the venue have the capacity to hold them all comfortably?
  • What time of the year to do intend to marry—during the dry or wet season? If it is outdoors, is there a backup area in case of rain?
  • Do you want to hold both the ceremony and reception at the same site?
  • Is it important for you to provide overnight accommodation for your guests at the venue?
  • How easy is it to access by public transport and are there plenty of parking spaces for guests driving to the event?
  • Is there a area for the bride and groom to change and/or relax?
  • How much are you planning on spending on a wedding venue?

Typically, in the Riviera Maya, couples decide to marry at either one of the following venues: beach, rooftop terrace, restaurant, jungle, hacienda or villa. Whichever venue you opt for, we will make sure your wedding is absolutely perfect!

Beach
The Mexican Caribbean is renowned for its idyllic shoreline, so it is no surprise that most couples choose to have beach weddings where they can walk barefoot down a sandy aisle and exchange vows overlooking the clear, turquoise waters. The light breeze in the air and relaxing sound of the waves will make the union with the love of your life just perfect. In the Riviera Maya, you will find a wide range of oceanfront locations to suit your needs, from the luxurious beach restaurants in trendy Playa del Carmen to the long, deserted beaches of laid-back Tulum
