Catholic Wedding Options for your Mexican Destination Wedding

Comments Off on Catholic Wedding Options for your Mexican Destination Wedding

Destination weddings are  certainly growing in popularity in recent years. One of the top requests for locations for weddings away is Mexico. But sometimes, we have a couple who starts the wedding planning process and then calls to say that they are not going to continue because their family really wants them to have a Catholic wedding.

Not so soon!

Just because you want to get married in a tropical locale doesn’t mean you can’t also be married in a Catholic church. Several Mexican resorts have breathtaking options that allow you to have a Catholic wedding ceremony, while still having that beachy feeling. Here are some of our most sought-after Catholic wedding venues in Mexico:

Wedding chapel at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort

Is a gazebo? No, it’s a chapel surrounded by glass. The Moon Palace Golf and Spa Resort offers its couples a beautiful and comfortable Catholic Chapel that has spectacular views of the Caribbean ocean!

Catholic Chapel overlooking beach at Gran Caribe Real

Your guests will love Gran Caribe Real Cancun’s Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Oceanfront Chapel. It offers the best of both worlds: you have the full views of the turquoise ocean water and white sand beach and you can still have that religious ceremony that means so much to you and your family.

Beachside chapel at El Dorado Royale

The chapel at the El Dorado Royale  possesses a cozy Mexican charm that cannot be duplicated. Catholic wedding ceremonies that take place here are intimate and elegant. When it’s time to make your grand exit after you say ‘I do” you’ll just be steps away from the beach!

Are you ready to start planning your destination wedding at an all-inclusive Mexican resort with a stunning chapel? Our Certified Wedding Specialists would love to help you plan a memorable destination wedding.

The Cocktail Style Wedding Trend

Comments Off on The Cocktail Style Wedding Trend

As new wedding venues make their way to the front of the bridal reception wish list, locations such as vineyards, museums and train stations are among a few of the trend-setters. In this post, we will focus on one a trend that our studio is seeing more and more–the cocktail style wedding..

This trend shies away from the norm, offering no formal dining option for the guests. Instead, the guest will enjoy a 6 -hour cocktail hour with an open bar and a lounge-like experience. Few locations provide that kind of setting, especially as a beach for its backdrop, but the Avenue at Pier Village in Long Branch, New Jersey does just that. The Avenue is not only a hotspot among the locals but also a well sought after location for the “untraditional” wedding venue.
