The perfect wedding means something different to every couple. That’s why, when you book with If Only and Inclusive Collection, you’ll be able to choose the resort brand, property and ceremony which suits your specific needs, whether that be a blissful blessing on the beach or a religious service at an on-site chapel.
If you’re looking to Tie the Knot in an official, religious ceremony recognised back home in the UK, it’s important to know which resorts can offer this service. Catholic weddings are only possible in consecrated venues at Dreams Sapphire Resort & Spa and Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa, although a priest can be brought in to perform a blessing at other resorts, however this would not be legally binding. Jewish and Protestant ceremonies are also available. South Asian Dulha Dulhan & Shaadi weddings are also available at selected resorts in Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic, with separate bookable wedding packages available for these ceremonies, accommodating up to 100 guests. These packages can also be altered to cater for Sheikh Weddings, although guests are recommended to bring the Sheikh Priest as one of their personal guests.
Legally binding non-denominational ceremonies are also available at selected resorts across the Dreams Resorts & Spas and Secrets Resorts & Spas brands. The services of a judge or minister to perform a legal service will incur an additional cost – your wedding coordinator will be able to advise and help arrange this when planning your big day. Please note, for both religious and non-denominational ceremonies, there are certain legal requirements which must be adhered to for a wedding to be recognised and conducted lawfully in the destination, from rules around specific paperwork and arrival dates prior to your wedding, to health checks and special forms. Our specialists will be able to advise with full details unique to each destination at time of booking.
If Only and Inclusive Collection can help plan your same sex wedding ceremony and advise on the best destinations and resorts to choose for your big day. Dreams Resorts & Spas and Secrets Resorts & Spas throughout Mexico offer both legal and symbolic same sex marriages at all resorts, while in the Dominican Republic, only symbolic ceremonies are available at Secrets Resorts & Spas. At present, same sex marriages are not available at any Jamaican properties.
Symbolic ceremonies are available across all destinations and included in every wedding package, at every Inclusive Collection brand. This can be a phenomenal way of marking your love for one another on far-flung shores surrounded by a small group of family and friends, following a legal ceremony back in the United Kingdom. What’s more, there are no legal requirements or paperwork required prior to a blessing going ahead, so you can relax and look forward to your romantic retreat with peace of mind.
