Important Information

  • Additional services including additional decorations, floral arrangements, food and beverages and live music can be added; prices vary.

  • The bride and groom and witnesses (if required) need to be in destination at least three full business days prior the wedding for Civil ceremonies and two full business days for Religious ceremony. 

  • Only the Civil ceremony is legally recognized. A Religious ceremony has no legal bearing and does not replace in any way the binding Civil Marriage. Once the Civil Ceremony is over, the couple receives a copy of the marriage licence and the original is sent within 5 -6 months directly to your home (please note that the Mexican Government can take longer to send these documents). Once the documents are received you should translate them into English and take them to City Hall for legalization. 

  • Religious ceremonies or Renewal of Vows are symbolic. They are performed by a Non-Denominational Minister. The bride and groom will receive a symbolic marriage certificate without legal bearing.
    *Please note that in Mexico Riu does not arrange Catholic ceremonies, a non-denominational minister is used. 

  • Room upgrades are to the next level above your booked room, however upgrades are subject to availability and not guaranteed. 

  • In order to have a wedding at Riu Hotels & Resorts, the couple and at least 80 percent of the total number of wedding guests must stay at the hotel where the wedding will be performed, otherwise it will be canceled. This is a strict RIU policy.

  • Wedding guests not staying at the resort must purchase a Day Pass; price ranges from US$50 to US$100

  • Prices and inclusions are subject to change without notice.
