Mexico has the best travel value for destination weddings due to its size and central location. There are abundant resort options between the Pacific and Gulf sides, offering convenient flights from almost anywhere in the U.S. You can find a variety of landscapes from desert cliff-sides in Los Cabos to the lush, tropical beach-fronts of Riviera Maya, and some of the top-rated beaches in the world. Ancient Ruins fill the Mayan cities, offering extensive history and exploration. Many resorts offer Mayan tribal dancers or fire shows that can add to your ceremony or reception, and some even have on-site Ruins that can be the backdrop for your wedding. Mexico also offers the most off-site vendors, so you can personalize every last detail of your wedding from the flowers to the decor to your reception menu, with many international cuisines available. Having more availability at your disposal in-destination means you won’t have to worry about bringing any of these items with you.
My favorite part of a destination wedding is the fact that the couple does not have one day to celebrate their union. Instead, they will be able to celebrate with family and friends throughout the days they’re there and really enjoy and appreciate those who took time off and put the effort toward going to their destination wedding.
In Mexico many couples select “mentors” who offer advice throughout an engagement and marriage. They are typically people who played an important role in the lives of the bride or groom, and often sign as witnesses during a civil ceremony.
