Weddings in Mexico and the Caribbean

Weddings in Mexico and the Caribbean are becoming increasingly popular among the more discerning traveller. This is as a result of the wide ranging opportunities your wedding is open to if you chose these locations. Temperatures rarely fall below 30, even in the winter months, making it the perfect destination for a wedding at any time of the year. Predominantly in the region of Cancun in Mexico, directly across the Yucatan Waters from the island of Cuba, nearly every Mexican wedding hotel in the region holds its weddings on the white sandy beaches of Mexico’s coast. If that’s not peaceful enough for you, then you may choose to hold your ceremony on an isolated and tranquil jetty out to the ocean on any of the Caribbean islands we feature.

When you look at wedding photos of marriage ceremonies in the Caribbean, you can see exactly why it is one of the most visually striking destinations to host your special day. Crystal blue seas and bright white sands create the perfect scenery to embrace yourself in the moment, making it a truly special occasion for all in attendance. All of the Caribbean islands have their own personal specialties, whether this be food, music or historical heritage attributions.

Important information about Weddings in Mexico and the Caribbean

We advise that you spend a minimum of 4-5 days in Mexico before your wedding as the Mexican authorities require you to provide them with the official paperwork at least 3 working days before your marriage ceremony. We advise similarly for the Caribbean, but each island has their own requirements – our wedding planners will advise you of this at the time of planning your special day.

The couple will both need to provide copies of the following documents before the wedding (and also take them upon travel):

  • A valid, 10 year UK passport that does not expire within 6 months of your return to the UK.
  • A copy of both birth certificates of the couple, issued no less than 6 months before the date of your wedding.
  • Original decree absolutes from any previous marriages.
  • If you have been widowed, you’ll need the original copy of your previous partner’s death certificate and your original marriage certificate.
  • Original deed polls for any previous name changes.
  • If you were adopted, you’ll need the original copy of your adoption certificate.

Copies of all the above documents must be supplied before your wedding day and original copies taken with you to Mexico and the Caribbean. Mexico requires the couple to complete a blood test before the ceremony – this will be explained to you in more detail at the time of booking. Any additional requirements that are specific to certain Caribbean islands will be advised to you at the time of booking.

It is also worth noting that sometimes the documents aforementioned will need to be translated or legalised by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, which carries an admin fee. The cost of this will be advised to you by our wedding planners at the time of booking.
