VOWS Wedding Ceremonies in Puerto Vallarta


No matter what type of ceremony you choose, Vallarta Original Weddings can make all the arrangements for you and provide information about required documentation and church procedures so you can relax and enjoy one of the most significant days of your life. Contact us today.


Civil Ceremony
The civil ceremony is the only legally recognized ceremony in Mexico, so if you want your marriage to be legal in Mexico and most other countries, you will need to have a civil ceremony. In addition, if you are planning to have a church ceremony, you need to first have a civil ceremony. The civil ceremony, performed by a judge, can be held anywhere you choose. Just remember if you choose to have your civil ceremony performed outside of Mexico, and your church wedding in Mexico, you will need to provide authenticated proof of your civil ceremony before you will be allowed to wed in the church in Mexico.


Church Ceremony
You can have your church ceremony performed in any of the churches in and around Puerto Vallarta. Contact us for details.


Catholic Ceremony
If both individuals are Catholic and would like a Catholic Church ceremony, there a several choices in and around Puerto Vallarta. The church of the Virgin de Guadalupe just off the central square is the setting for many weddings and is one of the most beautiful locations in the area.


Church weddings require additional paperwork and without the correct documents, it's impossible to get married in the Catholic Church. Therefore, it's important to plan as far in advance as possible. The ceremony takes about 20 minutes and the Father can recite the vows in English, if you desire.


Permission from your local Catholic parish is required for a Catholic ceremony in Puerto Vallarta.


If either of the individuals is not Catholic, but have agreed to be married under the Catholic rites, the non-Catholic must go to his/her local parish and secure permission from the local priest.


Other Religious Ceremonies
There are a number of non-Catholic churches in Puerto Vallarta where arrangements can be made for a church wedding. Non-Catholic ceremonies can also be performed outside the church by a minister of a particular faith or by a non-denominational minister. Let us know which faith and we can determine if there is a church or minister in or near Puerto Vallarta and what the requirements are for a religious ceremony.


Commitment Ceremonies
Couples looking for unconventional weddings, unions between two men or two women, or a man and a woman who just want to share their commitment to each other without a legal ceremony, are celebrating a "commitment ceremony" . While same-sex marriages are not legal in Mexico, the commitment ceremony is a wonderful way to celebrate your commitment to each other with friends and family. Many couples choose to have their ceremony performed by a friend or family member, but there are also ministers in Puerto Vallarta who can perform the ceremony for you.


Vow Renewal
More and more couples are viewing vow renewal as a way to celebrate that special anniversary, be reminded of their original wedding day, or as a way to have the dream wedding that wasn't possible when they first said their vows. From an intimate, private celebration to a gala event, what better way to show your ongoing commitment to each other than to renew your vows in a tropical paradise?
