Spending years together with your partner is a big deal. So why limit the experience to just one initial celebration? Especially when the extra celebration can be a fun, enjoyable and inexpensive experience. Where two people can honor their relationship in a vow renewal ceremony, a vow renewal ceremony is a beautiful way to celebrate your relationship and re-commit to your partner. And what better way to do so than with one of our affordable vow renewal packages in Mexico?
A wedding vow renewal is a celebratory ceremony for a couple to reaffirm their commitment to each other. While they are popular on milestone anniversaries (10, 25, or 50 years), there is no rule on when to have one. One of the essential things to remember is not to get caught up in wedding planning again. Vow renewal ceremonies should be a unique and meaningful way to re-committing yourselves to each other.
Marriage laws, religious restrictions, or location do not limit you. Why not make it a destination vow renewal and take the family or two close friends with you to enjoy the occasion?
It is an opportunity for both of you to think about how you feel about your relationship, especially if you last exchanged vows years ago. Children, close relatives, and special friends can do readings, and you can have meaningful music playing, just as you would at a wedding ceremony.
"Vow renewals have become very popular in the last few years—in fact, we're even seeing couples renewing their vows as early as after one year of marriage"

Vow renewal ceremonies are now becoming quite popular. The value of a vow renewal ceremony was a simple way to reconnect with your partner and reaffirm your relationship. And unfortunately, many vow renewal ceremonies cost $5,000 - $10,000, often not including the accommodation. But that is lost in many vow renewal packages large chain hotels offer. And do you want all those headaches of organizing a large ceremony to be attended by dozens of guests?
Our approach is an intimate, beautiful, unique, and affordable vow renewal ceremony focusing on the most important part: You and your partner. Bring a couple of friends as guests, your kids, or a couple of family members. But this is about you and your partner.
First, you get to select from one of three beautiful locations in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, for your ceremony. Then you can choose either a traditional Mayan ceremony or a standard western service. Then all you have to do is select your dates, choose from one of the vow renewal packages below, and work on your vows!
We provide 3 locations to choose from as the beautiful backdrop to your vow renewal ceremony in Mexico.
Playa Xaac And Caribbean Ocean
With the sound of waves rolling in on the beach, your vow renewal ceremony has a spectacular setting. This is an enchanting backdrop of white sand, rocks, and the azure-colored Caribbean Ocean. This is the most popular location for vow renewal ceremonies.
The location is in front of a local cenote. It has the water as a backdrop, surrounded by the tropical jungle. Cenotes were special places for the Mayan people, so it's very fitting for a vow renewal ceremony.
Rooftop Terrace Looking Over the Jungle
The third location for your vow renewal ceremony is on a rooftop terrace overlooking the tropical jungle to the north, east, and west, with views of the Caribbean ocean to the south.
You can choose a traditional Mayan vow renewal in Mexico or work with the ceremony planner on a more contemporary ceremony of your choosing.
A traditional Mayan ceremony is spiritual and interactive, typically in front of the ocean where the four sacred elements (Fire, Earth, Water, and Air) can be balanced in nature. In this traditional vow renewal ceremony, the Shaman, a traditional healer, will bless your union in front of the four sacred Mayan elements.
Honoring the Sacred Energies that inhabit these lands, the vow renewal begins by the Shaman setting an altar for the Mayan gods. The altar represents a compass that helps us to head towards the 4 cardinal points. The Shaman then infuses the altar with the aromatic copal, offering a cleansing and opening the heart to receive the universe's blessings.
Offerings include copal, seeds, flowers, fruits, xtabentun liquor, honey, wax, songs, tobacco, and cinnamon, all as established by Mayan customs. During the vow renewal ceremony, the Shaman will ask for the universe's energy to be present to give you a bond of power and everlasting love.
If you choose the traditional Mayan vow renewal ceremony, four elements are symbolic: fire, wind (air), earth, and water.
Love is the food of the Mayan Spirit. The Mayans represent the spirit as an Eternal and Immortal Fire. To the fire, you and your partner make three secret and silent promises to establish your intention.
The Wind represents ideas and thoughts. It is the element that sustains and elevates intention. The wind also serves as a communication vehicle, allowing partners to express their love as an offering to the wind freely. Rings can then seal your vows (optional).
Later, as an offering to the changing nature of the Water element, you will be wrapped in a large white shawl representing a cocoon and the transformation that happens within us when we surrender to the power of love. Mayan tradition has it that souls merge like two rivers in an embrace.
Finally, the petals offered represent the Abundance of the Earth. We celebrate not only the union of two people. The beautiful flower petals represent the powerful energy of each partner. The petals are an offering of gratitude to the sea and guests who celebrate the ceremony.
