Why have a vow renewal in Mexico?
It is traditional to celebrate your wedding anniversary, though that may be easier said than done! There are jokes about couples who constantly forget. Some have games to remind one another of the date or choose a memorable wedding date like Star Wars Day! We can all agree that celebrating the years a couple spends together is important. What better time to do that than on vacation?
Taking time away from day-to-day life to focus on each other is an investment in your relationship. A vacation does good, but intentionally focusing on each other, and your relationship has an even more powerful effect.
A “vow renewal” ceremony is not simply a do-over of your wedding vows. It is an opportunity to consciously mark the importance of your relationship. It’s an important part of maintaining a healthy marriage. Taking time to “see” each other, and reaffirm your bond.
Family Vow Renewals in Mexico
Your wedding was on the beach – now you have kids! SO many couples have destination weddings on the beach. They return home, the years pass by and they start a family. Now it’s time to return – take the smartphones away from the kids and put their feet in the sand!
Many families enjoy traveling together and in some cases plan an epic adventure on vacation. Why not combine all that fun with a celebration of your relationship? Family vow renewals are a wonderful way to celebrate the importance of every single family member and bring you all closer together.
Mexico Vow Renewal Locations
Riviera Maya and Cancun Vow renewals have so many potential options and locations. The beach is an amazing and classic Caribbean backdrop. There are tons of unique spots for beach ceremonies and in Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Whether it’s just the 2 of you, a family unit, or a larger group of loved ones, we can help you find the perfect location.
Another location that stands out are the epic underground caves and cenotes in the Mexican Caribbean. These freshwater sinkholes are jewels. They are hidden in the jungle, but easily accessible from the resorts of the Riviera Maya and Cancun. We can even take you on an adventure to celebrate your relationship!
Cenote Vow Renewals
The ancient Mayan Civilization once lived and conquered the jungles of present-day Quintana Roo. Cenotes are actually freshwater, underground rivers that served as a special life force for the entire jungle.
Our vow renewal cenote ceremonies are arranged, organized, and built specifically and custom for each and every client. Every need and every wish of our clients is considered to make sure that there are intent and meaning behind all of the details and activities of the unity ceremony. For more ideas about cenote vow renewals see our post on cenote ceremonies. If you are interested in underwater photography and Trash the Dress, a cenote ceremony is a great idea!
Surprise Cenote Vow Renewal and Trash the Dress
One of our absolute favorites was the way Justin surprised Tracy for their 10-year vow renewal. He consulted with Matt from Del Sol and mastered a plan to sneak her wedding dress on the plane. She was going to be told the night before the shoot that there was a big surprise the next day. Justin arranged to have a unique vow renewal ceremony to celebrate their 10 years and 3 beautiful children, but most of all he wanted to put her first and do this all for the success of the relationship.
Justin wanted Tracy to know that he valued putting her first in his relationship and investing in them (before their kids) was something that can and will exponentially improve their marriage and their ability to continue to be loving parents. Without a doubt, READ Tracy’s words about this. You will be convinced that intention is very powerful. Tracy and Justin’s location is an underground cenote that is privately owned. Del Sol Photography has a special relationship and commercially photographs for the property and thus organizes and fully coordinates ceremonies, contact us for more info.
Beach Vow Renewals
If you’d like to have a ceremony on the beach a great way to do so is to stay in a resort who can organize it for you. To have a ceremony on the beach in Mexico you need to have a permit as all beaches are federal property so you can’t just roll up wherever and however you want.
Private Villa Vow Renewals
A private villa is another option if you are considering a beach wedding ceremony, many have the necessary permits to set up on the beach or a garden with ocean views. There are also many great beach clubs in the Riviera Maya where you can have a vow renewal ceremony.
Adventure Vow Renewals
We have 20 + years exploring amazing destinations and can plan an epic vow renewal for the family in some of the most unique locations in North America. We encourage kids to play, families to love, and let go and live. Explore together, go places that you would never imagine by hiring the perfect guide to show you the path untraveled before.
Yucatan Vow Renewal Adventure – Las Coloradas and Rio Lagartos
One of our most epic Vow Renewal Adventures was “Pink Romance.” We took a legacy couple, Audrey and Richie for a 3 day tour of the Yucatan. Arriving in Cancun, the couple stayed in Playa del Carmen, before driving a few hours inland to a boutique hotel in Rio Lagartos, Yucatan.
We had plenty of surprises in store! Jumping in cenotes, covering each other in mud, pink dresses, pink water, and FLAMINGOES are all part of the fun. Check out the video to see the whole story, and if you want more don’t miss Crystal and Este’s Waterfall Vow Renewal and contact us to start planning your vow renewal adventure!
Cancun Vow Renewals
Cancun offers some of the BLUEST and most iconic Caribbean ocean in Mexico. It is also home to some of the few locations where we can see the sun set over the ocean – there are so many great locations for Cancun Vow Renewals! Contact our Del Sol Travels team to find a location for your Cancun vow renewal ceremony.
“We wanted them to remember and experience from an early age the connection and the love that we have for each other and know that they are a part of that love. We wanted them to hear our vows, see our happy tears, and know that feeling. They came from our bond and our dedication to each other from when we first met, to our wedding, to ten years and until forever.” – Selina + Daniel
Playa del Carmen Vow Renewals
Selina + Daniel had a Playa del Carmen vow renewal with their 2 young children. They stayed at the Paradisus family-friendly all-inclusive resort which has permission for ceremonies on the public beach. Highlights of their vow renewal ceremony include their daughter Sofia’s vows thanking her daddy for making her chicken wings!
Kate and Nam had a vow renewal at Mareazul Beach Resort inside the private gated community of Grand Coral. They have been visiting us every year in Mexico since their wedding more than 10 years ago! They are officially part of the Del Sol family, and co-founders Matt and Sol were a big part of their family vow renewal experience.
“I truly appreciate you creating such a beautiful and memorable 10-year Family Vow Renewal experience. It was a nice way to stop and reflect together in a way we wouldn’t do in our daily life or even on vacation. It felt a little silly suggesting it to Nam like it was maybe too self-indulgent. But we have fallen into “adulting” all the time and putting off celebrating or acknowledging victories. For some reason, people expect a big deal of a wedding and then maybe a 25 or 50 year anniversary but don’t give themselves much fanfare in between when life is actually at its hardest. I’m proud that we chose to celebrate our relationship even though we aren’t done yet, in the sense of having made it some huge number of years and we aren’t perfect.” – Kate + Nam
Tulum Vow Renewals
Tulum has a lot to offer. World-class beaches, chic, boutique hotels, mystical cenotes, private lagoons, and of course, the Tulum Ruins! Tulum provides endless photogenic opportunities as well as it’s own blend of boho charm and spirituality.
Tulum 40 Year Vow Renewal
One of our favorite EVER vows renewals was the 40th anniversary of Toni and Phil. Their Tulum vow renewal was held at the bohemian beach club. Their Mayan Vow Renewal ceremony included all their loved ones and was an incredible celebration of family love. It was SO exciting to see family from the Midwest US enjoying Tulum’s world-class beaches. Many had never seen an ocean before making the journey thousands of miles to Mexico for this special celebration.
Anniversary Party with a Cosmic Ceremony
Do it family-style: beach, feet in the sand, and the Caribbean Ocean as a background. A family anniversary party on the beach in Tulum is a SOLID idea. Invite friends, celebrate a union, and bring people together to celebrate. Cosmic or Mayan celebrations are one of our faves – everyone is involved. We recommend a circular ceremony setup, chairs can be available for people who need to sit. People throw flowers and play musical instruments and there is a beautiful intention behind every action.
Tulum Lagoon Vow Renewal
Jessica decided to surprise her husband Sean with a vow renewal. She reached out to us months before their vacation. We planned a spiritual ceremony in a private lagoon south of Tulum.
“I haven’t been there for Sean, in many ways. I wanted him to know that I am here for him, that I will always be here for him. I wanted to reinforce that and say it again. This was for us. It wasn’t for everyone who travelled, flew, drove X amount of miles… this was for us” – Jessica + Sean
Mayan, Cosmic and Spiritual Vow Renewals
One of the really special features of the Rivera Maya is that it is home to many shamans and spiritual people. Ancient Mayan traditions live on – the Mayan language is still spoken today by many – and the combination of the local culture and travelers interested in a spiritual and cultural experience birthed a plethora of beautiful ceremonies. One of our favorite parts of a Mayan ceremony is that it includes EVERYONE. That means in the case of a Mayan vow renewal ceremony shared with family everyone can participate – it’s an amazing experience guaranteed to strengthen your love bonds.
Design and Planning for a Mayan Ceremony
We work with several shamans and officiants who will come up with a custom ceremony for you and your family. Here are some of our favorite ceremonies where we designed the ceremony along with their officiant and the couple. Check out our Mayan ceremony archive for more inspiration.
Cherise + Tom – cenote elopement + TTD
Sherri + Michael – Cenote Vow Renewal
Kristen + Ryan – Tulum Boutique Hotel Elopement
Diana + Luis – Cenote elopement + TTD
Berthil + Carlo – Cenote family vow renewal
Toni + Phil – Tulum Beach family vow renewal
Mayan Vow Renewal
One of the most recent EPIC stories the gathering of Sherri and Michael’s 20th anniversary and vow renewal ceremony. The entire family had kids from 5 years old to 15 years old. Michael’s brother brought his 4 kids and together. Both Sheri and Michael’s parents joined the celebration and celebrated their 20th anniversary in the Riviera Maya. Sherri actually googled “special 20-year vow renewal,” which let her to discovering Mayan ceremonies and Del Sol Photography! We worked with shamans to design a ceremony experience for the whole of the group to participate in.
“We wanted something different, something meaningful. We knew we wanted to renew our vows with the kids around. But we wanted a change of scenery, to get away from our crazy routine at home. Our experience was fantastic. I really can’t say enough good things. The tips about our hotel, the full planning of our experience – the hair and makeup, the flowers, the candles, the whole ceremony – it was amazing. Matt reminded us what is important in life (which is so easily forgotten). I can honestly say that he was the one responsible for changing my perception on what is important in life”
