Booking Process & Requirements

To confirm your special day, we'll need to know if you want a legal or symbolic ceremony, as well as your preferred dates, package, venues and party size. Once the deposit has been taken, you'll be assigned a dedicated wedding co-ordinator in resort to go into the specific details of your wedding, such as flower choices, seating charts and music playlists for your reception. Any additional events, guests and experiences you add onto your wedding package, will go through your in-resort wedding coordinator. While you arrange your perfect day, we’ll help your friends and family with their travel arrangements and add them to your party list so you grow your group benefits and discounts.

 

For a symbolic wedding in Mexico, you need to arrive 3 business days before your ceremony, 4 days for a legal ceremony, and your arrival day counts as day 0.

 

Should any of your party wish to stay at another resort and only join you for the day, they will be subject to a wedding day entrance fee to be paid on arrival. External guest restrictions are limited to a maximum of 20% of your guests, and entrance is based on availability and occupancy of the resort. Alternatively, guests can stay a minimum of 3 nights at the resort, which must include the night before and night of your ceremony, and then move to their preferred resort. This will not incur a wedding day entrance fee, and the 20% restriction does not apply in this case. These rules also apply to external guests visiting from another Dreams or Secrets Resort property.

Legalities, Religious Ceremonies & Same-Sex Ceremonies

If you're looking for a legal ceremony, Mexico requires you to arrive 4 full business days before your ceremony. Your legal fees, such as the notary and translation costs are not included in your wedding package, however 2 of the Dreams Resorts wedding packages do include the services of a judge or minister. Your dedicated in-resort wedding coordinator will help you with the legal arrangements. After your ceremony, you will be sent your notarised and translated marriage license to your home address, within 8 weeks. Temporary copies will be given in resort after your ceremony.

 

In Mexico, same-sex marriages are legal. This means you can have both a legal and symbolic ceremony in most resorts, and Secrets Akumal is one them. 

 

All ceremonies can be tailored to your religious needs. For a catholic marriage, the ceremony needs to be held in a consecrated venue*. If your resort does not have a consecrated venue, a catholic priest can be brought in to perform a marriage blessing in the venue of your choice.

 

*Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya does not offer a consecrated venue. However, there are options available at nearby sister Dreams Resorts, which are family friendly. There is a traditional small indoor chapel at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa, as well as a larger garden chapel at Dreams Sapphire Resort & Spa. All Dreams & Secrets Resorts offer the same wedding packages and inclusions for the same cost, as well as the same Unlimited-Luxury all-inclusive dining concept. Accommodation, flights and transport fees will vary based on resort and destination.
