Destination weddings have dramatically increased in popularity over the last several years and it’s no wonder. The cost, energy, stress, and time needed to put together a traditional event is only increasing, and anyone who’s ever tried to plan a wedding on their own will tell you they completely understand why so many couples decide to elope or have destination nuptials.
Now that one in four weddings are destination weddings, more resorts than ever are offering superior services and upgraded amenities to make your big day truly unforgettable; these are some of our favorites.
- Dreams Cancun and Dreams Tulum
Both of these upscale resorts in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula have become highly specialized at putting together your perfect destination wedding. You’ll get your own on-site coordinator to take care of all the details once you’re there, with options of live music, a complimentary bridal suite, professional videographer and photographer, beauty services, discounted spa treatments, and so much more.
Plus with multiple ceremony locations, from their serene beaches, to private terraces or intimate chapels, you are sure to find just the right spot to tie the knot.
- Grand Velas Riviera Maya
For the couple whose destination wedding is a bit on the larger side, Grand Velas is a great choice. Choose their “Infinitely Yours” package for fantastic group rates, plus amazing food and drinks, superb service, spa credits, and preferred golf rates.
This all-inclusive resort will create a truly memorable event for you and your guests whether in a botanical garden, overlooking the glimmering sea, or even in a magnificent ballroom for a true fairy tale experience.
- Hard Rock
If you’re not the average couple and you want the option to really amp up your wedding then this is the place for you. Ceremony locations range from beachfront to rooftop, but they really shine when it comes to crafting a rocking after party.
Along with their usual superb service, they’re experts at creating a show-stopping reception complete with experienced DJs or even a live band to keep everyone dancing all night.
Hard Rock has resorts throughout the world, including several in the destination wedding-favorite Caribbean, so you’re sure to find the perfect place to say your ‘I Dos’ with an edge.
