Cancun is a popular wedding destination, often referred to as the resort capital of Mexico. This Mexican hotspot offers white sand beaches, pristine turquoise waters, and popular attractions like the MUSA (Underwater Museum of Art) and the nearby popular archaeological sites of Tulum, Chichen Itza and Cobá.

Cancun and the neighboring treasures of Holbox, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, Isla Contoy, and the small fishing village of Puerto Morelos welcome over 3 million visitors each year.

In the state of Quintana Roo you’ll find opportunities to participate in water activities like jet skiing, snorkelling and scuba diving.

Holbox (Isla Holbox)

If your wedding party wants to escape the hustle of Cancun, visit the sandy streets of Holbox. With a lack of cars and colorful Caribbean houses, it is peaceful, and during the summer you can swim alongside whale sharks. Isla Holbox is also a haven for birdwatchers, with over 150 bird species, including flamingos and pelicans.

MUSA (Underwater Museum of Art)

MUSA consists of over 500 permanent life-sized and monumental sculptures and is one of the largest and most ambitious underwater artificial art attractions in the world.

Isla Mujeres

A small island 13 kilometers off the coast from Cancún, Isla Mujeres can be easily explored on a day trip. The island is small and attractions are in close proximity, meaning you can easily get around by renting a golf cart, scooter or bicycle.

Chichén Itzá

Make your wedding unforgettable by visiting one of the new seven wonders of the world, Chichén Itzá. This complex of Mayan ruins features a massive step pyramid, known as El Castillo or Temple of Kukulcan.

Tulum National Park (Parque Nacional de Tulum) / Tulum Ruins

Located 80 miles (128 km) from Cancun, the ruins of Tulum are walled into the east and face the Caribbean Sea to the west. Tulum is the only archaeological site overlooking the ocean.


Notable for its extensive system of ceremonial roads, remote jungle landscape and multiple pyramids, including the tallest in the Yucatan, Coba has over 6,500 structures to discover.

Travel Document

Passport holders from countries on Mexico’s no visa required list don’t need to apply for a formal visa to visit Mexico. You can use a visitors permit, knows as a FMM (Forma Migratoria Multiple).

If you’re flying into Mexico your airline will typically provide you with the form to fill out. There is a fee for the FMM but many airlines include this in your airfare under taxes and surcharges.

If you are a citizen of the US, visit travel.state.gov for more information on travel documents needed. For Canadian travelers, visit travel.gc.ca for relevant travel information.

Marriage Requirements

You’ll need your passport, tourist permit, and a few other documents to get married in Mexico depending on your location and situation.

Blood tests and X-rays depending on the state your getting married in will need to be done in Spanish and within a certain time frame of the marriage application.

You’ll need to have four witnesses present at the legal ceremony, and they must have valid identifications: typically a valid passport will do but other forms of government issued id may be acceptable.

Our wedding planners will work with you to ensure everything is correct and stress-free.

Previously Married

Each state has slightly different laws regarding previously married couples and our wedding planners will help you navigate this process. Most places required BOTH the bride and groom be divorced for one full calendar year before re-marrying.

If either party is widowed, the death certificate of the deceased spouse will be required.

Same Sex Marriages in Mexico

Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled to change the legal definition of marriage to encompass same-sex couples in 2015. Since then several Mexican States now perform same-sex marriages and others have been moving towards ratifying their laws and legal procedures to comply with the Supreme Court’s ruling.


Spanish is Mexico’s official language though English is widely spoken and understood.


The Mexican peso is the currency of Mexico, but US dollars are often widely accepted in most areas.
