Catholic Weddings

The Requirements
The following requirements are for a Catholic marriage in Cancun/Riviera Maya:

• Certificates of baptism for both parties. 
• Certificates of confirmation for both parties.
• Written permission of the selected Catholic church.
• Two witnesses.
• A passport-size photo of both the bride and groom.
• Prenuptial counselling attended by both the bride and groom.

Keep in mind Religious weddings are not considered "legal" in Mexico, they are only recognized by your Church.

Canada only recognizes you as legally married if you follow the steps required in your chosen destination, to have a legal marriage. In this case, should you not wish to pursue other paperwork here at home, you would need to consider the legal requirements as well to complete a legal union. 

Wedding Packages

Palladium offers one main wedding package, however, most popular would be the designer wedding collections created by Karen Bussan. 

All collections will includes the same base amenities for up to 20 guests, kids under 12yrs free, with extra adults just $20. The base amenities include ceremony set-up, wedding couple florals, wedding cake a semi-private dinner, however, you may choose to upgrade to one of the three options to include private events, complete with decor and DJ.

For those not wishing a private dinner, perhaps considering splurging  on the ever popular "Beach Bash" party as your reception, with dancing, lighting and sound system.
