Cozumel weddings

Cozumel island offers some of the most romantic settings imaginable for a destination beach wedding or renewal of vows.

Many couples choose to get legally married at home and then have a symbolic wedding ceremony and the real celebration in Cozumel.

Legal religious or non-religious Cozumel weddings are also both available and legal paperwork is relatively straightforward but needs to be done in person on the island at least a few days in advance.

Whether you get married in a luxurious beach club, or renew your vows in an enchanting setting, you can rest assured that you and your guests will never forget your Cozumel wedding.
