Why You Should Have a Destination Wedding in Mexico

Wedding prices are on the rise and you want a wedding that everyone will remember. But you don’t want to start your life together with crushing debt. The solution? A destination wedding in Mexico!

Mexico is the perfect destination wedding location. There are tropical beaches, exotic architecture, historic wonders, and more. On top of all of the scenic beauty and the excitement of a foreign country, with a wedding in Mexico you don’t have painfully long flights, difficult customs procedures, or high prices. In fact, destination weddings are less expensive on average than weddings in the United States. Let’s look at even more reasons why you want to have a destination wedding in Mexico.

Price of a Wedding in Mexico

Mexico has several all-inclusive resorts that cater to wedding parties. This means that they offer package deals, which can lead to significant savings. Consider this, the average wedding in the United States is somewhere around $34,000 (including the ring). In Mexico the cost of your wedding, reception, and a couple days of vacation for $7000 (excluding the ring). That’s a significant savings!

The Views and Scenery

The reason to have a destination wedding is to experience a different culture, take a vacation, and have some pretty amazing backdrops for your wedding pictures. Mexico delivers on all counts.

Longer Wedding Season

In the United States, everyone wants to be a June bride. In Mexico the wedding season stretches from October to July, giving you great temperatures and a winter weather getaway.

Closer and Cheaper

Having a destination that’s closer to your home means the airfare rates are more affordable. Also, the overall accommodations can be less expensive that some other countries. It’s the budget-friendly destination wedding location.

History and Culture

From the ancient city of Teotihaucan and the Mayan pyramids to colonial architecture in Taxco and Queretaro, Mexico is a country rich with history, tradition and culture. Spend a few days exploring the country, appreciating its historical significance, and seeing the sights. You’re destined to create mind-expanding memories to share.

Water-Based Activities

If you love a day on the beach but it’s the water that calls to you – you’re going to love all there is to do in Mexico. Explore Rio Secreto the underground river, take a private yacht excursion to Cabo Pulmo and snorkel among coral reefs and with sea lions, go on a Sea Trek walking tour underwater. There are just so many aquatic activities and you’ll want to try all of them.

The Cuisine

Leave behind your Americanized notions of Mexican cuisine and dig into some of the most delicious meals you’ll ever have. In fact, traditional Mexican cuisine is listed by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) as an Intangible Heritage of Humanity. What we have in the United States is largely Tex-Mex, where authentic Mexican food combines the traditions of the Aztec, Mayans, and Spanish. Expect to taste fresh foods that are bursting with flavor.

A destination wedding in Mexico delivers on all fronts with beautiful locations to hold your ceremony, tradition and culture that are fun and exciting (not to mention delicious) to explore, adventures to be had or beaches for lounging, and it’s more affordable than a wedding at home. There’s really no reason to have your wedding anywhere else when you make your pros and cons list, and we can help you get there.
