There are various ways to be married in Petit Lafitte, here we describe them:
A legal ceremony is performed by a local, municipal judge in Spanish only. Blood tests are required in Mexico along with 4 witnesses with proper documentation (passport & tourist card). Both the witnesses and the couple must be in Mexico 6 business days prior to the wedding ceremony.
A symbolic religious ceremony can be performed by a local clergyman in either Spanish or English. The minister will supply a marriage certificate from his church. (Catholic priests will not perform marriages outside the church.)
The bridal couple can create their own vows/ceremony to be performed by an individual designated by them. (Deduct $450 USD from the package price for this option.)
The site is on our beautiful white sand beach with the turquoise waters of the Caribbean as the background. A variety of options for arches, or altars is available for you to choose from.
