Beach Wedding Arch

Your special event should be an event to remember. Mayan Beach Garden is perfect for small intimate destination weddings, Mayan Ceremonial Wedding anniversaries and birthday parties. Let us help you plan yours. Destination weddings, anniversaries and Birthdays are a great way to combine your event with the perfect honeymoon or vacation.

If it is just the two of you, saying your vows on the beach can be romantic and memorable. Mayan Beach Garden's intimate setting and hospitable hosts turn your wedding day into an unforgettable "mini-vacation" for you and your guests.

There are two types of marriages in Mexico -- Legal and Ceremonial/Religious.. If you want your Costa Maya marriage legalized in the country that you live in, there are legal procedures that must be followed:

  • Must be performed by a legal judge with the authority to make your marriage legal
  • Bride and Groom must be present in Mexico several days in advance in order to get blood tests and to have legal documents translated
  • Birth Certificates: These will need to be certified and translated by an approved translator. This can be done here in Mexico or contact your nearest Mexican Consulate for details regarding Quintana Roo.
  • Legal documentation showing parents name (in Mexico, your marriage cannot be recorded without your parents names)
  • Legal documents - these differ depending on country of origin and previous marriage history (divorced, widowed, etc.)
  • Passport: valid for at least 6 months and a copy of same (both the bride and groom).
  • Immigration form: Original copies of the tourist permit which was completed at the port of entry or other resident permit (visa, FM3, FM2, etc.)
  • Divorce Decree / Death Certificate: If the woman was previously married, or either partner is widowed, copies of the Divorce Decree or Death Certificate, if applicable, will be required for presentation. This too must be translated into Spanish.
  • In Quintana Roo, the State where Mayan Beach Garden is located in, women (not men) who have been previously married may not remarry for 300 calendar days following the date of the final decree of divorce unless during that time they have given birth or can prove "by medical dictate" that they are not pregnant.
  • Four Witnesses -- either Mexican Nationals or foreign persons with FM3s

    Religious Ceremony

    If the list above looks daunting, don't despair. You can have a beautiful Religious ceremony which can take any form you like and does not require formal documentation or blood tests. You then register your marriage at the justice of the peace or other legal office in your own country.

"I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful hospitality!  The day was perfect....and when we look back it, it was definitely a highlight of our trip. 
Last night when we arrived home around midnight (after traveling all day) I rushed in to see the pictures you had sent.  Bob and I so enjoyed re-living that day and some of the shots Heather captured were priceless. Thanks for a remarkable day!  You will definitely get some good PR from the Harrises!! (March 2009)"
