Types of Ceremony

Please be aware that there are different types of wedding ceremonies in Mexico.

  • Legal Ceremony: This is the only ceremony that will be recognized as legal once you return to your home country. This is also referred to as a civil ceremony. It is performed in Spanish and translated to English by one of our professional wedding coordinators.
  • Symbolic Ceremony: This ceremony is not recognized as legal in Mexico or your home country. Packages included the services of a non-denominational minister but can also be performed by a religious order for an additional fee. This type of ceremony is typically performed for couples already married and wishing to have a wedding ceremony, those thinking of a legal ceremony at a later date or those wishing to renew vows with their loved one.
  • Non-denominational Minister: The symbolic ceremony is performed by a non-denomination minister. Some ministers speak English and for those that do not, the service is translated into English by our professional wedding coordinator.
  • Religious (Catholic or Jewish) Ceremony: This ceremony is available alone or in conjunction with a Civil Ceremony. An additional fee of $500 (Catholic) and $1200 (Jewish) will apply and is not included in any of the packages.
    Note: Catholic ceremonies can only be performed in a chapel. A chapel is located at El Dorado Maroma and El Dorado Royale hotels only.

All Civil marriages that take place in Mexico under Mexican law are completely legal in Mexico. A foreigner marrying in Mexico must legalize their marriage in their country of birth/residence. This is completed by registering your marriage certificate at your local City Hall.
