A bride's choice of ceremony includes not only romantic beach ceremonies but also stunning and classic church weddings. The colonial cities, full of history and culture, with breathtaking landscapes and a touch of romanticism, are among the greatest possibilities for a traditional wedding in Mexico.

Queretaro, located in the center of Mexico, is a stunning historical city. This city has extraordinary viceregal and baroque settings, such as its old mansions, which have been converted into museums or elegant restaurants, majestic haciendas, baroque churches, and vast ranches and gardens, all of which create a refined and cozy atmosphere for an unforgettable wedding, an elegant event with a very Mexican flavor.

And nothing beats hearing the church bells welcome a bride, her future husband, and her relatives beneath a cloudless sky, the ideal omen for a wonderful religious service, which can be placed in the Templo y Convento de la Cruz, the Templo de San Felipe Neri, or the Templo de Santa Rosa de Viterbo.

In the surrounding area, past and present collide to reveal to the bride and groom and their guests a historic metropolis where you can admire buildings that decorate its historic center, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, such as the Casa de la Corregidora, the Teatro de la Repblica, or the Casa de la Marquesa, now converted into a hotel.

Or, very close to the city, the newlywed couple can recharge their batteries in the town of Bernal, where the famous Peña is located; visit the Franciscan missions of the Sierra Gorda, which are of great architectural value; explore the archaeological remains of Ranas and Toluquilla, or enjoy the spas in the picturesque town of Tequisquiapan.

Colonial Towns in Mexico

The bride and groom will find magnificent religious buildings such as cathedrals and convents; haciendas; farms; homes; and enormous restored houses; as well as lovely tiny squares in numerous Mexican cities, the majority of which are colonial jewels.

You may easily discover the location of your dreams for a stunning traditional wedding in places such as Queretaro, Morelia, Mexico City, Guanajuato, San Luis Potosi, Zacatecas, Puebla, Oaxaca, Merida, and Aguascalientes. However, such perfect wedding venues are not limited to major cities.

Mexico also has lovely colonial villages scattered over its vast country. Taxco, Guerrero, Real del Monte Patzcuaro, Michoacan, Tepoztlan, Morelos, Izamal, Yucatan, San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, and San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato are all wonderful cities with an interesting architectural beauty that can serve as the perfect location for a fantasy wedding.
