I Dos & I Don'ts: Planning Luxury Beach Weddings in Mexico
Pueblo Bonito is an extremely popular place for weddings and honeymoons. So, we thought it fitting to include an article with helpful tips on how to plan luxury beach weddings in Mexico. The beach is the ultimate romantic setting for the perfect wedding. What's not to love? Sand all over your dress, guests stung by jellyfish, the risk of shark attack, the possibility of a tropical storm...just kidding, we all know how beautiful a beach wedding can be. The image of golden sand, a light breeze, a beautiful sunset and a gorgeous ocean view is enough to turn anyone into a hopeless romantic. Tricks of the Trade Beach weddings in particular can be a little tricky since the atmosphere calls for a few tweaks. For example, you may want to consider the surf and the sand when choosing your wedding attire and décor. A light, short wedding dress won't drag in the sand and will keep you cool and comfortable. Some designers even make dresses specifically for beach weddings. Naturally, all of the décor should match the beach setting with soft, peaceful colors. Since the beach can be rather windy, be mindful when choosing and setting up decorations (you don't want anything to get blown away or tangled up). Knowing when the tide comes in can also help avoid a flooded wedding ceremony. If all this seems like a handful, finding a professional wedding planner that understands these subtle intricacies can help with the many details. Legally Binding Overall, the key to having the perfect wedding is simple: organization. Keep a notebook or binder with information such as:
- color swatches
- contact numbers for everyone you are working with (venue, caterer, flowers, DJ, etc.)
- guest list
- pictures of what you want (magazine clippings, online photos, etc.)
Carry this binder with you whenever you go out to do your wedding business. By having all this information neatly organized within a binder, you have one source to reference everything needed for your wedding. Change in the guest list? Mark it in your binder. Question for the caterer? Check your contact list. Can't tell if this table cloth will match your colors? Look at your color swatches. Of course if you are easily overwhelmed a wedding planner could keep all this under control. How to Avoid the Stress...and the Jelly Stings If you're thinking about beach weddings in Mexico, choosing to have your wedding at one of the Pueblo Bonito luxury hotels in Cabo, Puerto Vallarta or Mazatlan, can eliminate the stress of preparing the perfect beach wedding (or searching for a decent wedding planner!) Not only will your stay be in the lap of luxury, but everything from the food to the ceremony décor will be beach-perfect and absolutely stunning. Enjoy the peaceful elegance of Pacifica Holistic Retreat & Spa, the private stretch of beach at the Sunset Beach Resort, or treat your guests to an all-inclusive stay at Samba Vallarta. Packages for weddings in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan or Puerto Vallarta range from 2 to 100 guests or more and include complete wedding planning and catering services. Whatever you choose, remember that your wedding is about you! Whether you are considering a wedding in Los Cabos, or any other dream destination, choosing what you really want will make your wedding the special day that it should be.
