How To Create Intimate And Fun Destination Weddings Mexico

By Ann Snyder

If you are getting married you may have thought about the many different options available. You may have considered having a large ceremony and reception but may feel that this style does not suit you or your future spouse. If you are thinking about finding ways to plan a smaller, more intimate gathering, you may want to consider one of the many destination weddings Mexico that are available. Here is how to ensure you end up with a beautiful and memorable celebration.

Long distances can make planning anything more difficult. This is especially true if you are in a place like Alberta, Canada and trying to put together an event in a different country. You should consider making a trip down at some point in the planning process. Alternatively, you could always opt to wed at a resort you have visited previously and are familiar with. This can help you ensure you know what a property is like before you start booking and paying out deposits.

If you want to make planning much easier you may want to consider having your ceremony and reception at one of the local resorts. All inclusive resorts can be great for your guests since they can enjoy a vacation as well as be part of your special day. A resort will often be able to provide everything you need from a ceremony site to flowers and decorations. They often are able to provide a lovely meal as well for your reception dinner.

Your guest list will often be smaller with this kind of event. If you want to include people who cannot afford to travel you may want to plan a reception when you get back where you can show images from your event. Do not be surprised if some people are unable to afford the travel costs and you should treat their attendance at your event as a gift in and of itself.

Your ceremony location will also affect things such as what will be worn by both the bride and the groom. It may also affect what the wedding party will wear as well. If you are getting married on the beach you may want to choose garments made from lightweight, flowing fabric rather than large ball gowns or other heavy dresses.

Marrying at a resort can have many different advantages. One is that your guests will be able to stay right at the site and will not need to worry about arranging transportation in a foreign country. You will also find that a resort will usually have a wedding planner on staff. He or she will be familiar with local service providers and be able to help you create a beautiful and memorable event.

Making the ceremony personal for your guests does not need to be difficult. If you are planning to give your guests gift baskets or favors you may want to describe why you chose your ceremony and reception site. You may also want to place baskets in their rooms with toiletries or other items as a way of welcoming them to the resort.

You may want to think about planning some group activities. Touring the surrounding country side, having food or alcohol tastings or other group activities can help keep your guests connected and excited about your event. You should also let your guests have time to relax on their own. Keep in mind that this is likely a vacation for many of them as well as a chance to watch you get married.
