From a beautiful oceanfront ceremony overlooking El Arco to a sophisticated soiree on the terrace of a luxury resort, Los Cabos offers a plethora of stunning locations to exchange vows. As one of the most popular locations for destination weddings in Mexico, Los Cabos can cater to any couple’s unique tastes and personalities. With a long list of award-winning hotels, no shortage of professional services or wedding planners ready to accommodate any budget or group size and a dramatic backdrop, brides and grooms can rest assured that no detail will be overlooked at Land’s End.
Apart from luxurious resort offerings, couples are urged to experience some of the natural wonders of Los Cabos. Lover's Beach, named after the point where two seas unite, is renowned for its notably calm waters when compared to other surrounding beaches. Lover's Beach is also home to internationally acclaimed landmark, Al Arco, a structure completely unique to Los Cabos. Water transportation is necessary to visit the picturesque beach, which creates a remote and exclusive escape for couples to enjoy.
The required paperwork for a marriage Los Cabos is similar to that required in the U.S., with the difference being that the nearest Mexican consulate must validate all documents (your hotel or wedding coordinator can assist with this process).
There are two forms of weddings performed in Mexico. One is the Civil Wedding which changes your marital status from single to married and is recognized as legal throughout the world; and the other ceremony is the religious, this kind ceremony does not change your marital status in Mexico or anywhere in the world. It is possible to have both the civil and non-denominational ceremony completing the legalities in the Judge’s chambers and having the minister for your sunset wedding at a location of your choice.
For those couples wanting a church wedding, several Los Cabos resorts offer unique chapels for the ceremony, a few of which are listed below:
