27 Aug All-Inclusive Resorts with Chapel Wedding Venues
Are you dreaming of a destination wedding, but also want your ceremony to be held in a chapel? These all-inclusive properties in Mexico and the Caribbean offer both! Check out all of the options below.
Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa – Tulum, Mexico
Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa has a very unique wedding chapel. It is a gorgeous shade of blue, with a lovely courtyard in front and an attached, covered reception venue right next door. If you’re looking for a traditional Spanish-style chapel wedding in Mexico, this is a great option.
Grand Velas – Riviera Maya, Mexico
The Chapel at Grand Velas Riviera Maya is the crème de la crème for a Catholic ceremony in Mexico. Overlooking the gardens and tucked away from the main area of the resort, this venue is in perfect harmony with the environment. In addition, Grand Velas Riviera Maya is family-friendly. However, they do offer an adults-only section for couples wanting to stick around the 5-star property for their honeymoon.
Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya – Riviera Maya, Mexico
The Oceanfront Chapel at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya is for Catholic wedding ceremonies only. It features gorgeous views of the ocean, including views through a window-like cross at the altar. It is classically beautiful with marble flooring and white wooden pews for your guests. It’s located right in the heart of the very large Hard Rock property, so you and your guests can head straight to the party afterwards. This is a great option for larger weddings as it is a big resort and the chapel is also large.
Moon Palace Cancun – Cancun, Mexico
The chapel at Moon Palace Cancun is a gorgeous option for a Catholic beach wedding. The design of the chapel really lets the scenery – namely the ocean views – do the talking. It has 360 degree windows all around and classic wooden pews for your guests. and The rest of the chapel is elegant yet understated, so you can make it your own. Another thing we love about weddings at Moon Palace Cancun is that although it is family-friendly, it really has something for everyone. This is great for an eclectic group of wedding guests or multi-generational families.
Over-the-Water Wedding Chapels at Sandals Resorts
Sandals Resorts have several properties with wedding chapels. Sandals South Coast, Sandals Grande St. Lucian, Sandals Ochi, and Sandals Montego Bay all have Over-the-Water Wedding Chapels. These chapels each bring something unique to the table, from glass-bottom aisles to thatched roofs and wooden floors. Check them out below. (Above picture is at Sandals South Coast in Whtiehouse, Jamaica).
Sandals South Coast – Whitehouse, Jamaica
This is definitely a favorite when it comes to wedding chapel options at all-inclusive resorts. You truly cannot beat the turquoise ocean which sits just below the glass-bottomed aisle. This chapel is probably one of the breeziest options, with tons of windows and an uncovered balcony at the end of the aisle. Couples can opt to make their vows in the open air, which is especially magical at sunset.
Sandals Grande St. Lucian – St. Lucia
The Over-the-Water chapel at Sandals Grande St. Lucian was renovated in 2017 and offers the perfect setting for an intimate ceremony. With clean lines and panoramic ocean views, you really can’t go wrong with this one. We’ve seen it decked to the nines in tropical floral arrangements, or left on it’s own in it’s gorgeous simplicity. We also love the wrap-around porch that surrounds it. Perfect for photos of the bride and groom after the ceremony.
Sandals Ochi – Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Sandals Ochi is another Over-the-Water chapel option from Sandals Resorts. It, like many of the others, has a glass-bottom aisle that makes each ceremony magical. We also love the large window in the front that lets in plenty of natural light for a daytime ceremony, or sunset views for an evening affair.
Sandals Montego Bay – Montego Bay, Jamaica
Sandals Montego Bay is another property in Jamaica with an over-the-water chapel option with the gorgeous glass bottom aisle and classic white interiors that let the sea create the ambiance. This property also has an intimate resort chapel, pictured below. The inside has traditional wooden pews and an elevated alter. The outside path, lined with fountains and lush greenery, ensures your walk down the aisle is beautiful from start to finish.
