Cancun Offers Luxe Fairy Tale Weddings

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

With endless options for the most refined and unconventional taste, this Mexican Caribbean destination is the ideal spot to organize an event that the bride and groom will never forget.

For the first time Cancun celebrates September as it’s Month of Romance, and during this entire month you can experience a romantic environment to fall in love, carry out a wedding, or simply plan a romantic get-a-way.

A ceremony full of magic and mysticism by the sea-shore or in the world’s most spectacular “cenotes” (fresh water sinkholes) can only become a reality in Cancun. Mayan weddings with the areas own ancestor’s rituals have become an original attraction for couples who swear eternal love before a shaman.

All the elegance that an engaged couple seeks during the most important moment in their life is in Cancun. They can organize the event aboard a luxurious yacht or at a variety of sites located in Puerto Morelos, famous for its glamorous weddings.

There is also the option of saying your I-do’s on a romantic, private beach or in the heart of tropical gardens in the most exquisite boutique hotels, or for those who prefer a more classical union can choose from a vast variety of the five-star hotels and resorts, where the first dance with the groom will be in a majestic ballroom with ocean view and decorated especially for the couple.

As if it weren’t enough, the newlyweds can welcome their new life with a special ceremony, in which beautiful dolphins will present them with flower crowns and take them on a fantastic trip; turning your wedding into a fairytale.

The good news for those interested in getting married in paradise is that only a passport is required.

To transform the couple’s dream into a reality, the destination relies on professional and specialized wedding planners for every type of ceremony, leaving your worries aside; they take care of everything, from legal requirements to hotel and plane reservations for the guests, or even –accordingly with the green meetings trend- provide sustainable decoration or amenities.

Without a doubt, Cancun and Puerto Morelos offer everything necessary to have the perfect wedding: bilingual judges, an officiant from every religion, a varied list of the best musical groups, banquet service, florists, photographers, fashion designer, and most importantly, facilities that can accommodate whatever number of guests, from 3 to 6,000. It is no wonder Cancun has become the destination of choice to celebrate the most incredible weddings in the entire world.
