A Riviera Maya Wedding Sent From Above
Who said that love doesn’t fall from the sky? It can certainly skydive its way down and land in a beautiful Riviera Maya beach! If you are a first time skydiver, you should consider that this is not for the faint of heart… well, you might have guessed that already. This is a Riviera Maya wedding experience that completely stands out from the rest. It is a good opportunity to re-think the wedding dress too, unless you don’t mind ending up with your gown over your head… Try something shorter, or a different kind of outfit instead. Defy the norm! A wedding ceremony on mid air will only last a couple of minutes, and the head-rush you’ll get will definitely set the pace for a fun, crazy and adventurous marriage!

Love Under The Sea
If you are an adventurous, non-traditional couple, you can try an underwater wedding! This kind of ceremony is great for scuba lovers and seasoned travelers with little or not guests. If your loved ones will be able to join you under the surface or not will depend on their age, physical conditions and scuba certification. If you are ready for this unique Riviera Maya wedding adventure, our friends from Aquaworld are the experts you should be talking to. The whole wedding takes approximately 3 hours, and you’ll spend half an hour underwater. You need to take a little training course before. Among their wedding ceremony options, they include a “knot ceremony”, so you can literally tie the knot! If an underwater wedding ceremony is not right for you, you can still have a trash the dress session. Check them out here!
The origin of Cenotes can be traced back to the collapse of ancient underground caves. The Riviera Maya has plenty of these mystical locations, and they are perfect for beautiful, unique ceremonies. They are perfect for intimate celebrations. Once the wedding is done, everyone can go outside for the reception and even have a refreshing swim in the Cenote’s crystal clear waters. Make sure you choose a comfortable dress, since you’ll probably have to walk through the jungle to get there.
