Mexico Says “I Do” to Destination Weddings tion wedding in Mexico, many couples are choosing to fine-tune their experience by adding more splendor. “Many people use destination weddings as a way to save money, but couples are now definitely incorporating more sophistication. I see that a lot when talking to hotels and wedding planners—events are becoming more sophisticated,” says Kitzia Morales Harbich, partner at Mexico Wed, which along with the Mexico Tourism Board offers Love Mexico, destination wedding specialist training for travel professionals and planners. This increase in spending—by choice—also applies to weddings of older or previously married couples. Of course, the love with the all-inclusive concept continues to cross over into destination weddings with more refinement than ever before, in the form of unique and luxurious packages. “Even if they end up not using them, they’re a great base for brides to know what they can do,” she adds. It’s important that agents develop a solid relationship with hotels, says Morales Harbich. A bride might approach the hotel directly but then find herself overwhelmed with the issue of arranging flights and other logistics. This is where a hotel could step in and recommend an agent that could put it together for her and iron out all the details. Those details, in fact, are what make the wedding unique to each bride and groom, yet so many of them will soon discover that Mexico provides the ready-made basis for their special day. They’ll find that pristine beach, centuries-old church or archaeological site in which to profess their love for each other, always with an army of wedding planners, suppliers and event experts at hand to help them each step of the way. They might want to dance the night away in a fun-filled nightclub in Acapulco, wait for sunrise in jungle-clad shorelines or hold an intimate reception in a historic courtyard in Morelia as bougainvillea blooms around them. Lucky for them, when choosing Mexico for a destination wedding, they have an infinite variety of dream locations from which to select. The following pages will provide you with a glimpse of some of the options available in Mexico—from the colonial romance of San Miguel de Allende to the sea-and-desert landscape of Los Cabos. Once you’ve become immersed in the wedding possibilities of the country—and in how to most effectively sell them— there’s no stopping a “happily ever after” for clients and for your Mexico wedding sales.

They’ll combine a wedding, honeymoon and more in one fell swoop. “The feedback from past destination wedding travelers to Mexico has been overwhelmingly positive. In fact, many people who have chosen Mexico as a vacation destination have been seeing the many beautiful weddings being performed at various resorts and then requesting to have their destination wedding in the same location,” says Jacqueline Marks, v.p. of product & pricing at Funjet Vacations (funjet.com). The cost-effectiveness of ceremonies in Mexico, adds AMResorts’ romance product manager Amanda Davis, lets couples enhance their special day. “This allows couples to add these unique touches or other ‘wow’ factors, like a bonfire on the beach or fireworks display, that they may not have had the opportunity to include had they not selected a destination wedding.” Despite the perk of saving money when choosing a destina- This wedding planner was written by Sarah Muñoz.
