Treat your wedding party to an experience they will never forget, and yourselves to a wedding to remember for a lifetime


Capella Ixtapa is an oceanfront paradise - the epitome of intimacy and privacy - where the sky is reflected in the waves and the timbre of the sea crashes onto the shore. The infinite stars put on a dazzling display above, creating the perfect location for a Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico beach wedding.

The backdrop of our cliffside locale is ideal for photographic memories. What better way to begin your life together than with a luxury destination wedding at Capella Ixtapa? We invite couples to our beachfront destination, where the salt air perfumes the ceremony.

Our staff will work with you to create the ideal wedding package, from ceremonies defined by the rich heritage of Mexico, to modern, casual beachside affairs. Small, intimate gatherings are our specialty with three on-site restaurants to host your ceremony.

Your luxury Ixtapa wedding will be infused with the spirit of our entire Mexican resort. Treat your wedding party to an experience they will never forget, and yourselves to a wedding to remember for a lifetime.

Mexican Wedding Traditions

A wedding in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo is not complete unless you include romantic, Mexican traditions. We invite you to partake in the following traditions:

  • The music of mariachis, playing at the end of the ceremony or during the reception
  • A gift of 13 gold coins from the groom to the bride during the ceremony, symbolizing financial responsibility for the family
  • Encircling the couple in a lazo (rope) following the coin ceremony to call attention to their eternal union
  • Two bridal bouquets - one for the bride and, in certain Christian ceremonies, one for the Blessed Virgin as an offrenda (offering) to obtain a blessing on the marriage
