Congrats on your engagement!!!
You just decided to have a Destination Wedding in México! Now what?
A destination wedding is a great option because you can celebrate your big day in a very special place and enjoy a vacation with your closest family and friends.
It will be the trip of a lifetime!
Traveling with a big group may cause some stress since there is a lot of extra planning and extra expense.
So we decided to share some of our wisdom to help you to take care your budget in a classy and practical way.
Hope you find these planning tips helpful!
What shouldn’t be missing in your wedding?
Focus on the things that your absolutely love and make a list. That way it will be easier to remember everything without missing any detail.
2.-ASK SOME FRIENDS FOR HELP
We always have a friend that’s willing to offer some of their talents to help you have the destination wedding of your dreams. Maybe you have a talented artist in the group that can help you get some beautiful designs, make them your cost-free source, for example, assign the place cards to the one who has a nice handwriting.
3.-THINK ABOUT YOUR GUEST LIST
It is really important to decide whom you are going to invite. I recommend you skip the people who are not really close to you. Remember that some of your guests probably have a formal couple who you must invite getting you to double your guest list.
4.- THE WEDDING PARTY
Choose who gets to be part of the wedding party carefully, maybe having just a couple on each side is more than enough. Remember that a smaller wedding party will help you to save some money in bouquets, favors, transportation, etc.
5.- LOW SEASON? WHY NOT!
Yes, I know, we all love Spring and Autumn weddings in the Caribbean but choosing low season will help you find lower rates in hotels, venues, vendors, etc.
6.- HIRE AN EXPERT
If you feel overwhelmed hiring a wedding planner can help you narrow down the planning process to simple steps. Professional wedding planners have seen it all so take advantage of their experience in the area, and their good relationships with the vendors. They will help you narrow down vendor options to fit your particular wedding style
And personality soy you get the best fit possible.
7- DON´T BE AFRAID! Technology is your friend !
Go green and save paper on wedding invites. You can have a simple website made to share the details of the trip, costs, flights, hotels and even travel activities such as tours. They are also a great for guests to RSVP easily

8.- Take advantage of locally SOURCED products.
The Mayan Riviera has many amazing local fruits and beautiful tropical flowers, stay seasonal and local, why not to have an exotic and fresh beverage for your toast?
You can also give out local product baskets as favors. The whole region is full of delicious natural honey and great skin products that your guests will probably love.
9.- CHOOSE AN ELEGANT AND SIMPLE DECORATION
This is where the concept of less is more comes in handy. Minimalist elegant wedding styles are becoming more she more popular.
10.- HOME MADE means caring!
Your guests will always appreciate the work and details you put into homemade favours. Also a great way to shave a couple bucks off your wedding budget.
There are so many ways to have an amazing Destination Wedding without going bankrupt.
