Sunset Weddings at Petit Lafitte


It has been said that the best way to start a marriage is by having a honeymoon trip full of great experiences.

We believe there is an even better way! How about getting married on a pristine white sandy beach highlighted by the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea as your backdrop? Petit Lafitte invites you to experience our laid back part of the world and share it with your friends and family on your special day.

  • These basic items are included in any wedding at Petit Lafitte.

    • Legal or Symbolic ceremony

    There are various ways to be married here. You can opt for a legal ceremony which requires blood tests and legal paperwork to be completed within Mexico or you can perform a symbolic ceremony on the beach and have the legal marriage done at home – either prior or after your trip to Mexico.

    • Option A
    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 bridal couple must be in Mexico 6 business days prior to the wedding ceremony.

    • Option B
    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).

    • Option C
    The bridal couple can create their own vows / ceremony to be performed by an individual designated by you. (Deduct $400.00 USD from the package price for this option)

    • Ceremony Setting
