Top 50 Cancun Wedding Questions:

Yes, you can have three types of weddings in Cancun Mexico.  You can have a legal, religious or symbolic wedding.  Legal weddings also known as civil weddings require additional paperwork and blood work to be done the week of your wedding.  They also require you to arrive an extra day early or 3 full days before the ceremony.  Religious weddings can be either legal or symbolic.  They can be with your minister or a local Cancun wedding service can provide on for you.  There are also symbolic which allow you to have your choice of minister or not, you must arrive 2 full business days early.  Arrive before 12 pm for that business day to count.  Cancun also allows same sex marriages.  

To get married legally in Cancun you will need to be over the age of 18 and have 4 witnesses.  Your entire wedding party will need their passports, Tourist Visas and the required paperwork for your marriage license.  You must arrive 3 business days before your wedding and land before 12 pm for that day to count.  You will need chest x-rays and blood tests.  If you are doing a legal marriage consider having a resort set the whole ting up.  You can do you blood tests and chest x-rays up to 14 days before your wedding.  If you are getting remarried, bring your previous marriage end paperwork (death cert, divorce cert).  You will need your birth certificate too.  If you are found to have HIV or syphilis you cannot get married legally.

A traditional Indian wedding lasting 3 days and includes events like Sangeet, Mehndi, Milni, Baraat, Shaadi, and Reception can cost $25,000 to $30,000 for 50 people.  This cost doesn’t include your guests rooms or transportation.  If you have more guests the cost can quickly go up.  The cost for adding 50 additional people is about $10,000!

A traditional Sikh wedding lasting multiple days and including events like Mehndi, Sangeet, Baraat, Anand Karaj, Langar, and reception can cost $25,000 to $30,000 for 50 people.  This cost doesn’t include your guests rooms or transportation.  If you have more guests the cost can quickly go up.  The cost for adding 50 additional people is about $10,000!

A traditional Muslim wedding lasting multiple days and including events like Mehndi Night, Egging, Sangeet, Symbolic or Nikah Ceremony, and Gala Reception can cost $25,000 to $30,000 for 50 people.  This cost doesn’t include your guests rooms or transportation.  If you have more guests the cost can quickly go up.  The cost for adding 50 additional people is about $10,000!

If you are booking your wedding through a resort that does Hindu or Indian wedding, they will have contacts for you to use.  If you are doing an Ala cart Cancun wedding then consider these Cancun area wedding photographers: 70+ Cancun Wedding Photographers

Some great in-room welcome gifts to supply your Cancun wedding guests would be items like fruit baskets or a basket full of real size soaps, suntan lotion or bug repellent.  In many cases this will be customized per couple coming to your wedding.  Some you would give an alcoholic gift too while others the aforementioned fruit basket.  Some common items you could include would be aspirin, water, eye masks, spa treatments or even a map of the area.  

Looking to have a Jewish wedding in Cancun?  There are several resorts that offer wedding packages for Jewish couples.  Here are a few:  Azul Beach Resort, Beach Palace Resort, Cozumel Palace Resort, El Dorado Cassitas Royale Resort, El Dorado Maroma, El Dorado Royale Resort, El Dorado Seaside Suites, Excellence Playa Mujeres Resort, Excellence Riviera Cancun Resort, Finest Playa Mujeres Resort, Generations Riviera Maya Resort, Grand Velas Riviera Maya Resort, Hard Rock Hotel Cancun Resort, Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya Resort, Hilton Playa del Carmen Resort, Hyatt Zilara Cancun Resort, Isla Mujeres Palace Resort, La Blanc Spa resort, Moon Palace Cancun Resort, Panama Jacks Resort Cancun, Panama Jacks Resort Palya Del Carmen, Palyacar Palace Resort, Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort, Sun Palace Cancun Resort, The Fives Beach Resort and Villa Esmeralda Hotel.

There are many do it yourself Cancun wedding packages but planning your wedding through a service can really save you time and money.  Many wedding planners have contacts they have previously worked with and vetted.  Consider doing the all inclusive wedding packages or wedding packages at an all inclusive resort.  

My favorite Cancun area resort for a family wedding would be Sandos Caracol or Sandos Playacar.  Both locations are great but one is more Eco while the other more open sunshine.  Your guests would have access to the resorts amenities and 10 restaurants for the cost of a daily pass.  The resort also offers you a discount on the combined rooms you book across your entire wedding group.
