Why you want to get married in Mexico

The 5 real reasons behind your destination wedding and why your sister wants to do it too!

** Unrepeatable Experience **

A lone beach is ideal for a spiritual wedding

Inimitability is important! You, me, everybody is one singular different individual, so should be your wedding. Do you dream of a tropical beach with palm trees? In Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya/Tulum, we got them. Check out http://www.selvatica.com.mx

Are you into Mayan history, antique ruins, sacred cenotes and a shaman blessing your union? we were the first ones to organize spiritual weddings in 2001 at the famous restaurant Yaxche, on 8th street. We now adore the Alux restaurant, in a large cave (check http://www.aluxrestaurant.com)

Choosing an exceptional Destination adds memorability, an element fundamental for the memories to come, providing both the couple and guests with a one-of-a-kind experience. Do you want to go down in history of weddings? Be bold!

**Stunning Backdrops**

Destination weddings always take place in picturesque locations, offering breathtaking natural backdrops that enhance the overall aesthetic of the wedding ceremony. You won’t need a lot of decor with sand, blue sky and the Caribbean sea!

** Extended Celebration ** (and you can be as crazy as you want)

Got a fantasy? Unlike traditional weddings that may last only a day, destination weddings often involve extended celebrations, providing more time for bonding and creating lasting memories. Many clients brought their pets, could share their dream of renting a carriage with horse like a princess, could skydive (with http://www.skydive.com.mx) into the wedding or … anything you like. We are always ready to help with fantastic ideas!!

**Built-in Honeymoon:**

Many couples opt for destination weddings to seamlessly transition into their honeymoon, saving time and offering a convenient and romantic start to their married life.

Did you know that two of our clients won a few months ago a three days stay in a 4 starts Tulum Hotel thanks to a winning contest by http://www.weddingsvacations.com… Lucky strike!

** Guests Memories Creation **

Go all the way!

The ones who will follow you to Mexico are the ones who will go to the extremes for you two. Memories will be created at large, from the flight to Cancun Airport, to the last Corona beer (or Mezcal) before boarding, you are gifting your family and friends with a shower of memories. Add to that a photo booth, a trip by catamaran or a little costume extravaganza and the cost of attending a destination wedding can naturally result in a large PRO, enabling a more meaningful and personal celebration.

Your wedding will be a legend long told…and that is why your little sister wants to do it too!

Victoria and Rico, Hacienda Playa Paraiso, Tulum Destination Wedding

110_Victoria_Rico_1146The beaches of Tulum are famous around the world and with good reason. The sand is powder white and soft, the water is clear and the winding palms sway with every gentle beach breeze. There is no question why Victoria and Rico knew at first sight, that they wanted to bring their closest friends and family to this slice of paradise for their wedding.

101_Victoria_Rico_1007 103_Victoria_Rico_1057 112_Victoria_Rico_1183It’s hard to go wrong with decor when you have such a naturally beautiful venue, but the turquoise and white really was a great choice, matching the surroundings perfectly.

107_Victoria_Rico_1119 109_Victoria_Rico_1136 113_Victoria_Rico_1208 119_Victoria_Rico_1691The wedding took place at a private villa, Hacienda Playa Paraiso. Special guests included the couples two adorable pups!

Chef Ruben Lopez created a delicious gluten free menu for the group and the party, complete with a wedding piñata, went late under the star filled sky!

Jordan and David, Villa Bellamar, Destination Wedding in Akumal

weddings in playaWe could list a million reasons why any couple should consider getting married in the Riviera Maya. Besides the obvious ones like gorgeous weather and breathtaking scenery, there are several other very special qualities this area has inherited as a result of its growing international population. It’s these qualities; the beauty, acceptance, respect and diversity, that brought Jordan and David along with with closest friends and family, from Texas and beyond for their beautiful beachside nuptials in Akumal.

Playa_del_Carmen_Gay_WeddingThe celebration was held at Villa Bellamar, a gorgeous luxury retreat in Akumal, only 20 minutes outside Playa del Carmen. The quiet beach was the perfect backdrop for this intimate gathering.

We loved the choice of decor for this event. Pops of blue and violet with marine accents made it feel romantic and masculine and fun with touches of quirky Mexican art kept it light and festive.

Playa del Carmen has a wonderful gay community, and is home to one of the largest gay festivals in North America, the Arena Festival, so it is no surprise to us why we are seeing more and more couples choosing our home as their spot for an unforgettable destination wedding. And we are honoured they choose us to be a part of it all!
